Welcome to my blog

This is me on January 1, 2011, at 185 lbs. Never Again!

This will be my first blog entry. I have been battling with my weight since I was pregnant with my oldest son in 2006. It has always fluctuated up and down over the years. I was at my highest at 177 when I got pregnant with my youngest son in July 2009. Since he was born last March, I have again yo-yo'ed up and down...I am now at my NEW highest, 185. :( I have had enough now! I hope by sharing my journey with all of you, I will accomplish a few different things.

1. I can document my journey and, one day, look back and feel a sense of accomplishment.

2. Having "people" to be accountable to, should I have a bad day or get lazy with exercise.

3. Someday I can use this blog to give someone else inspiration to travel a similar path, should they want to change their life for the better, as well.

I know these are optimistic goals, that only make sense SHOULD I succeed. I NEED to succeed this time.
