Cheerleaders, encouraging people wanted!

I need an overhaul. Can a 63 year old woman totally change her life? I am going to find out.
I have ventured on this path for years now, only to step off for a brief moment and totally slide back down the mountain. If you look at it as falling off the wagon, I have fallen off so many times I feel like I have been run over by the wagon. The wagon is completely out of sight!
I have a million reasons why I want to change my life, become healthier and more active. I have an equal number of excuses why I don't do it. The excuses have been winning.
I'm not sure I am ready to start on this journey again.... I have started and failed so many times... but I am going to. When you fall down, you get back up. My motivation right now is an 8 week weight loss challenge at work. I don't want to win the challenge.... I just want to find my motivation again. I want to find my way back to the path, back to the wagon, back to myself. Hoping by surrounding myself with coworkers who are on the same path will help me get moving on mine.
The challenge begins February 3. This week I am purging all the things that will tempt me from my home and stocking the shelves with healthier options. I am going to dust off the treadmill and weights. I am going to psych myself for this journey. Looking for some support and encouragement because right now, I'm not feeling very good about myself, or undertaking this journey! However deep down, underneath it all... I really WANT to be the person I am meant to be, not the person I have become.
