My Weight Loss Journey

My little sister Courtney is getting married next year. I am so happy for her and cannot wait to see her in her dress - she is gonna blow everyone away - she is so beautiful. I am glad she told us way in advance the date of the wedding cause this will give me a chance to shave some of this weight off my fat arse. She is getting married September 10, 2011 so that gives me 1 year and 9 days to get trim. I decided to start at the first of the month, which was yesterday, and also a Wednesday, which is weird, cause I have always started a diet, or something new on a Monday...but I decided I would start on the first and it happened to be on a Wednesday so them's the breaks! I stepped on the scale first thing yesterday morning and was mortified. I am at my heaviest weight ever and I'm disgusted. So.. that gives me a bit more incentive to do well cause I am angry with myself. I'm not going to write the numbers down cause that would just scare all of you too...but I must publicly apologize to my knees, and my hips and my back.....no wonder you have been complaining a little more loudly of late......it's a wonder you are still functioning at all. So with that being said I have started. I am in the right head space and I WILL do this. I know I can, I have done it before. 2 years ago I lost 50 pounds and I was doing great. Then my son got ill and was hospitalized and my focus went from me to him and I never got my focus back. He is doing great now. He's a lean 14 year old going into Grade 9 this September. He makes me laugh and we have a great time together and I'm very blessed that he is still around so we can do that. So now that I know he is fine, I can refocus my energy and get back on track. I'll try to do an update once a week - more to keep me honest than anything. Wish me luck, Jacqui
