Life Change - New Identity
Wednesday, August 14, 2013
A lot has changed since I regularly used this site. I am now a widow, which really sucks, although it doesn't define me it has changed my perspective on a lot of things. It feels like I have been given a new identity, one I didn't ask for and which I'm still trying to figure out. Part of that involves me wanting to become a healthier version of myself, not only for myself but for my kids since I'm the only parent they have left. Am I ready to loose weight? I'm not entirely sure, but I know that I want to begin try again so I'll just have to see how things go.
I know that this will be difficult emotionally as well as physically especially now that my husband Jason who was always my biggest supporter and cheerleader is no longer here to give me his support and encouragement. But I'll trudge on because if there's one thing that he would want for me its for me to be happy with myself. This is just one aspect of who I am, not the whole person and in a time where my life has gone through so much change this is one thing I know that I need to tackle head on.
I started a 10 week biggest loser challenge at work today so here goes nothing. What do I have to loose besides $20.....oh yeah that's right its time to loose the weight!!
