Other Things May Change Us,
But We Start And End With Family!

Enough is Enough!!!

So...for those of you who know me...know that I have struggled with my weight for most of my life...I have decided that enough is enough!! We, as a family, have decided that we were going to start living healthier. We got a membership at the YMCA and have started working out. We have a new routine in the house....we get up and get ready for the day when Eric gets up to go to work (6:45ish) and Hailey and Cayson get dropped off at school for breakfast. Jaxson and Deni eat a PBJ sandwich on the way to the Y and then get dropped off in their child-watch area (free 2 hours of babysitting a day when you join). I have tried a handful of group classes there and definately have my favorites (and my not-so-favorites) but in the 2 weeks since I have started....wait for it....wait for it.................I'm down 11 pounds!!! WOO HOO!!!! Each day the scale tells me I'm just a little bit lighter, makes me feel like I've climbed Mt Everest! My goal is another 40 pounds by July...we shall see if I can surpass that goal...but for now, each pound gone (and I say gone..not lost...because I don't want to find it again)but each pound gone is a motivation to keep going....I'll keep you updated as I continue on this journey! Until next time..........
