13 yrs later
Monday, April 15, 2019
13 years later and I’m still sitting here weighing over 300 pounds.
I joined SparkPeople in 2006 weighing 306 pounds this morning when I weighed in I was 317 pounds and 2 ounces.
Now don’t get it twisted it’s not spark peoples fault it is mine. I’ve been unfocused dealing with everybody else’s garbage instead of focusing on myself and dealing with my own garbage.
Today I turned 57 years old it’s time that I took the reins of my own life and made a difference in my life for myself.
Because there is no way that I am going to sit in my house day after day eating myself to death. I lost myself for to long and found myself today.
So today I reaffirm to myself that I care about me and I’m putting myself first finally.
It won’t be easy for me because I’ve literally spent my entire life taking care of others and neglecting myself although that didn’t register until just recently.
Growing up I was always taught that I was to take care of everybody else to show them that I love them and don’t worry about me because I did not matter.
As women we are taught that our job is to be caretakers for everybody else and we always lose ourselves in the process.
So let’s take care of ourselves from this point forward.
Take care !
