So...Where to begin???

Well, I have always believed that "Everything happens for a reason."
I don't know what it is about the year 2009, maybe the fact that I will turn 35 this November? I promise I'm going somewhere with this, really.
When God decides that it's my time to go, I'm ready. But I simply REFUSE to accelerate the process any longer!!!

2009 is MY year! For a long time now, I have been very unhappy with myself... I could spend hours upon hours trying to figure out how I allowed my weight to spin out of control. But where would that get me? I want to be able to play with my boys, enjoy spending time with my husband, and like what I see when I look in the mirror.

I am hesitant to set a specific weight loss goal, for fear of being disappointed should I fall short. What I HAVE decided to do is to start small. My "plan" is to go to the walking track next door to the hospital after work on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. I am still trying to figure out what I can do on the other days.

I also have not chosen to follow a specific "diet plan". Baby steps, right now. I feel like once I get moving, that will be motivation to begin implementing a better lifestyle.

I have chosen to blog about my journey so that I am held ACCOUNTABLE. Thank you for reading and please feel free to share any comments or suggestions.....
