“You wanna fly, you got to give up the shit that weighs you down.” Toni Morrison, Song of Solomon

If you’ve looked at my blog today you will find a new page – My Weightloss Journey. I haven’t said anything to anyone except my BFF and my hubby. Losing weight and positive thinking are both huge struggles for me. I’ve dealt with both in some form since I can remember (yes, when I was little I thought I was fat, but I wasn’t…I just thought I was).

I need to focus on what I really want when I lose weight.

1 – I want to keep up with my kids (this is HUGE for me).

2 – I don’t want to be a fat mom.

3 – I want to be an example my kids can live by and love.

4 – I want to feel good.

5 – I want to look good (and by extension feel sexy).

Is that last one shallow? Maybe, but let’s face it, many people are shallow and how you look on the outside is used as a measuring tool to who you are on the inside. I am not a physical reflection of who I am.
