Hello everyone.  I’m 31 years old,  barely five feet tall on a good day and am obese according to my BMI.  There is so much more to me than that, but sometimes it feels like I am judged by these numbers and need to overcome the insecurities I have about each of them.

I have been married almost five years.  My husband and I want to start a family, but first I need to be the best ladybug I can be!

I started my weightloss journey on my birthday of last year (July).  I set up mini-goals for myself to reach my 65 goal by my next birthday.  10 lbs by labor day, 25 lbs by Christmas, 45 lbs by Easter and 65 lbs by July 4th.  I reached the labor day goal with no problem, then in late September twisted my ankle which cut any form of exercise out for a few weeks.  Maintained my weight loss just didn’t move any further down the path.

Then in October 2008, I lost my mother.  It was unexpected and numbing.  So basically my life was jilted in a different direction for a bit while dealing with losing a huge piece of who I was.  While trying to grasp what my life would be like now, I didn’t care about what I was eating or doing and put back some of the 10 lbs I had last in the fall.

I rededicated my journey to my mom in January and I know she would be proud of me for continuing to achieve what I felt would make me happy.  I am happy to say I am back on track.  Revised my goals a bit to align with where I was at the start of 2009.  New plan was to lose 30 by Easter, 50 by July 4th and 65 by Labor Day.

Follow me along the way to see the ups and downs along the journey to being the best ladybug I can be!
