here I come tomorrow!

so last week was an OK week. I'm still not up to par with other contestants, but I feel better. I didn't eat a lot of fast food like I usually do. Because with my job I am always on the go I usually eat breakfast and lunch out somewhere. not only is this unhealthy, but money adds up. I signed up for the YMCA and I am hoping to start going with my sister...anyone who wants to go first thing in the morning let me know! The weather is definitely making me feel more positive and I hope it stays sunny. Hopefully I can get it all together soon so I can actually feel good in the summer instead of depressed by what I can't wear!

God give me strength!

So I thought having everyone who reads the news-herald know my weight would give me the motivation to lose weight. Just like I previously thought joining weight watchers, $120 a month diet pills from Mexico, dexatrim, Atkins diet and many others magical things would work, but its not working. Sometimes I feel like having a heart attack or getting diabetes is the only way I can lose weight. I know it seems so simple. Don't eat bad things, and move a little bit but I have battling weight for over 30 years. I have so many opportunities through this contest to lose the weight but I'm obviously struggling. I definitely could use more support...I have my mom, my sister and a few co-workers that ask how I'm doing but I wish I had more at home, but living with 5 males isn't very helpful....So I'm asking one more time God to give me the strength I need to do this.
If you know me and are reading this take the time once in awhile to email or shoot me a text..just so I feel like someone cares...I'm hoping tomorrow I wake up with what I need to get through this. There's still a few months left so I have some hope.....
