I just turned 40 and had a really hard time with it. I feel like I being 40 means I'm at my 1/2 mark in life and I don't like that at all! . I really need to stop procrastinating. I've had so many excuses (the weather, I'm tired, too busy, etc). I've put off going for my check up because I'm embarrassed about my weight.

I want to feel better about myself and not have to worry about my chin and my gut in pictures. My best friend lost a lot of weight and I hate having my picture taken with her because no matter how I try I just can't seem to suck it in enough. UGH! I've been overweight by anywhere from 10 to 50 pounds all of my life. I see my daughter heading down the same path and that makes me so sad. I don't want her to feel the way I've felt.

So, that's it. I got off track but I'm getting back on. Wish me luck!
