My Journey to a New Me!

I am a 40 year old mother to three beautiful children, grandmother(nana), to my little heart, miss Kennedi Symone, and Godmother to my precious, Jazmine. For years now I have struggled with my weight. It didn't happen overnight and I know this journey to lose the weight will not be conquered overnight. I am enlisting all my friends as my support group as I make this journey to what I am calling the new me. Today, was the first day that I have excerised in a long time. I don't know where this journey will lead, but I am praying that it will lead to a more healthier me, one that understands and appreciates her body, mind, and spirit. I am still pondering how to take on this task, so any help will be greatly appreciated. Oh yeah, did I say how much I truly hate to exercise, lol, but how much I truly love to eat Oreo cookies. As a matter of fact, sweets are my downfall. To my wonderful sista, who suggested the low calorie sweets, all I can say is keep me in mind. LOL.

  3. Good Luck and write down everything you eat it makes you more aware of what you are putting in your mouth because I have the same problem. When I do this with the exercise it works. My favorite work tape is walk away the pounds it light on the bones and you still lose weight. Sweets are my weakness also so I treat myself one if I have do good that week. I hope this help.

  4. I would recommend sparkpeople.com Its a free site that alows you to track your weight, goals, food intake and excersise. Its wonderful. There are motivational stories, low fat recipes, a search to find people close to you. The food is listed for almost anything you can think of. And as a bonus there is a cricut group started on their although it is not very active right not.
