I am a 40 year divorcee with three children (16, 15 &12). I was downsized out of a job almost two years ago and went back to college to get me degree, of which I have one semester in the fall then student teach in Janruary then I will be finished. I have been overweight for the past 20 years and have done almost every diet in the world, including the HCG shot, weight watchers, herbal life, south beach, atkins, and many many more with no success (obviously or I wouldn't be on here :)) I am not one that likes to exercise but I have motivated my self to start. My biggest issue with losing weight is not allowing my thoughts to sabotage me, such as if I start out well and follow a food plan and exercise but then don't lose what I think I should then I stop. I know I have to change my mental process to ensure success so that is my goal this time along with lossing. I enjoy cooking and baking so I am learning new ways to cook good food with flavor but without the fat. Its difficult to balance raising three children, full time college and part time work with fitting in exercising and eating right but I am determined to accomplish all my goals this time around. I two weddings to attend in the fall and hope to someday meet someone of caliber to date and I know that once I am happy with myself then I can be happy in everything. My life is pretty good now and I love my family and friends so I know I can accomplish this. Good luck to others on their journey to a better you.
