I start today on what I hope to be a downward spiral of the weight that has maliciously attacked me over the past 4 years.
Seven years ago I found myself at an astonishing 240lbs, and in a marriage I no longer wanted, a world in which I had let myself settle into and just became comfortable. I needed to shed not only the weight but the man I had spent the last sixteen years with. SO I left, packed up everything I felt I had a right to and just left. I wanted to start all over, I joined our neighborhood YMCA and set out to lose the pounds. But the pounds wouldnt budge. Four months after making this move my husband was killed in a car crash that envolved only himself. Over the next six months I walked around in a daze wondering if I had stayed would he still be here? And to my amazment eight months later I realized the pounds had fell away while I was greiving. Not really the way I wanted that to happen, aint life crazy like that?
Over the next year and a half, I worked and took care of my almost grown children and welcomed my first granddaughter McKenzie. Yes my teenage daughter was a teenage Mom just like myself. It was alot to keep up, but I managed.
I met Joe in May and fell head over heels. He was the perfect knight in my kingdom of turmoil. As my children became older and started leaving the nest I settled back to relax. Joe had said that I had worked so hard over the past several years that it was about time I started taking it easy. So every evening he would stop by after work and take me to dinner. Oh the wonderful, beautiful man that seemed to me to be the most amazing creature to ever stand before me, now had helped to heap three quarters of the weight back on me before I had noticed.
So today I start anew in hopes that I can convince my beautiful Joe that eating out is a maliciously, conceived idea to the term rest and relaxation. I will gladly cook for you today, and bid farewell to fastfood hamburgers forever. Though on occasion I know that eating out is enevitable, I will study the menu carefully before indulging in cuisine classics such as Big Macs and Quarter Pounders.

Love it
