    Tired of clothes not fitting and shopping for new clothes instead of enjoying life. 😳

    I hated that phrase MORBIDLY OBESE. Postmenopausal issues. I wanted to walk and not be short of breathe

    My current clothes are starting to fall apart and I refuse to buy anymore "fat clothes." I want to be able to jog, walk, and hike when I'm 80, 85, 90. I want my kids to have my love and guidance for another 30 years. I want to travel. I want to take my dogs to the dog park for miles of walking together. I don't want to sweat so much.

    Once I started getting comfortable at the gym something just clicked. I enjoyed the way I was feeling and happy with my progress. With medical conditions in family history, I wanted to continue getting healthy to lessen the chances of it happening to me. Being only 30 I wanted to start my fitness/ health journey now, so I hopefully don't have to worry about things in the future.

    I've always been a little bit bigger, but once I got free of my ex-husband who hoarded and was a binge eater, I went to the doctor in an effort to take control of my neglected health, and found I weighed 296. That was Not Okay. But since I'm with two people who love me and support my weight loss, and I have MFP, I can do it. I had that appointment January 2, 2020. By this date I've lost 25 pounds, two pant sizes, and one shirt size. My orthopedic issues after a car accident in my twenties had always kept me from weight-bearing exercise, but with just this much weight off I have about double the ability to stand and walk, and now I'm busy and active and happy. I've discovered a love for weightlifting, and a desire to be what's under the fat; a big strong woman with pinup curves. I will probably need surgery to deal with the loose skin on the front; I am short-torsoed and had three large babies, and my abs and skin have not recovered. But I have a burning desire to stop looking six months pregnant, to be able to get through the day without a nap, and be 100 pounds less by this time next year.

    I don't have a lot to lose, but even 10-lbs makes an uncomfortable difference cuz fat settles in my stomach & waist. One day, when it became tough to polish my toe nails cuz my stomach was in the way & I couldn't pull up my knees, I stopped putting it off.

    I also have a closet full of cute summer clothing & I can fit into some if I don't mind my stomach poking out & most button down shirts I can't wear cuz I can't button up.

    So, I began. So far, so good. Just keep moving forward.
