This is me in December of 2008.
After seeing this picture I promised myself that I would never be that big again. I started following the Weight Watchers plan without attending the meetings and started going to the YMCA and made the elliptical my best friend. I got down to 173 lbs by June of 2009.
Slowly I let my weight creep back up, buying new jeans and looser tops. I have always loved to walk and be outside but as an adult I let daily life keep me from doing these things. After suffering through infertility for years I found out I was pregnant (complete surprise) in May only to have a miscarriage in July. This has made me consider how poorly I have been taking care of myself. Although my miscarriage was completely out of my control I still want to take care of myself in hopes of getting pregnant again. I want to be healthy. I have no desire to be skinny or fit into a certain size clothing. I just want to be a healthier and happier me.
So for this first week here are my little goals:
~ walk at least 30 minutes everyday this week
~ drink more water throughout the day
~ limit the shortbread cookies that I want to devour
~ carry a healthy snack with me at all times
