Well I am no longer embarrassed about my weight anymore. I know that I am obese for my height. I have finally able to stick to a regimen and I have been losing weight for the last six months. I need to find more motivation to stick to it and putting it out there for people to read and see and comment on will keep me focused. I hit my peek weight at 226 at the beginning of the year and about six months ago started eating better and so far I have dropped down to 205. I have a goal of hitting 135 but I would be happy with 160 - 170 which is what I weighed in high school. Im am doing this not only for my selfesteem but for my health. I currently have high bloodpressure and was told by my doctor that it is cause of my weight and that if I lost weight and got healthier I wouldnt have to take meds for it anymore. I also want to be there later in life for my son. Its not fair to him when I dont take care of myself the way he needs me to. If I dont take care of myself then I cant take care of him. Tim and I also want to have more kids in the future and a womens weight can affect their fertility and I dont want to have to worry about that when we do decide to try for another child. Any way here are pics I had Tim take for me to use as motivation they may offend some all I am wear is my bra and panties.
