Weight Loss Ticker

About Me

My photo
TX, United States
I am a 39 yr. old stay at home mom to 3 girls ages 10, 9 and 7. My goal is to be fit by 40! I want to lead a healthier lifestyle. I was banded on 4/5/2011. I tend to be a bit on the sarcastic and cynical side. I love to read, hate to excersise (but am learning to tolerate it!), love to shop and want to smack anyone who is a size 2 (not really!). I am learning to work with my band and my new self one day at a time!

Taking Family Pictures

It has been quite awhile since I let any of my family take pictures of me.  I have avoided it like the plague.  Being heavy and the camera do not go hand in hand. 

Really  I did not want to document how I looked.  I was ashamed that I could not control the eating.  Ashamed that food had control over me.  And really, who would want to see that printed on Kodak paper?

So, today I did the unthinkable.............I took a picture.  Because now there is hope. 

It is my daughter's 9th birthday.  I will not forget this in years to come.  The picture is proof that I have lost a lot of weight and gained back my self respect in the process.

If I can (and I am) beating this weight issue.....................there is nothing I can not do.
