No excuses... I have battled my weight for my entire life. I just decided that I was going to take control of IT - and not let IT control me any longer. I have 2 beautiful 14 year old twins - that I absolutely adore. More than anything, I want to be a more 'active' parent. I want to go sledding with them - not just hold the extra clothing and hot cocoa. I want to be IN pictures - not the person behind the camera. (If I were to have passed on my kids would have mental images to remember me by! Photos of me are few and far between.) I want to really enjoy our family outings to amusement parks - not panic every time I sit in a roller coaster seat - for fear that I will need assistance getting buckled in. I feel that I have missed out on so much - but, it's never too late to take back what was yours all along. I AM IN CONTROL NOW!!!
