So what is it that I am trying to accomplish 

here? I guess my main goal is to lose weight 

and to feel better about myself. In the 

process I hope to be able to help others.


I am a 42 yr old mom who instead of having a mid-life crisis decided maybe I should just blog for a yr about things I am going through. Will it help or is this really a crisis or an eye opener. Who knows because this is day by day blog. Life takes us on all kinds of journeys this just happens to be mine. I am so tired of being overweight! I have been a yo-yo dieter since my last child. That child was born in 2006. Ten yrs I have been at this, so what is the point. I don’t know what my point is or if there is such a thing. I just want to lose weight and still hold onto Oreos doing so. I know that is just crazy and no I do not sit and eat Oreos all the time but once in awhile I have been able to put away half a package.

I want to do better about eating, the problem I have most is I am an emotional eater. I have a lot of emotions and they enjoy fatty foods and sugar ones rather than fruit and vegetables. I don’t know to many women who cry when they are upset reach for a nice apple rather than a nice apple pie.

So how am I going to do this in a yrs time and see a difference after all my past failures? I guess you will just have read and find out does this journey end well for me or not so well. I am hoping by having you readers that it will help encourage me to be healthier for me and be a inspiration for those out there like me. I recently started Beachbody and no I do not have a beach body by any means but who says in a yr I won’t. I am your average 42 yr old mom, I am not disciplined at all but I would like to be.

I hope that you will enjoy my blogs and learn from my mistakes. Trust me I will make them and you can read about them. So lets start this Journey together!  So until next time, God Bless those that are here with me!
