I want to show you something that is very scary to see are you sure you are ready ok here you go:


this picture is not someone else’s but mine taken back in Jan. 2011. and here is my picture:


Here I am in all my fatness! I am fat, and unhappy! Look at my face, the way I am holding myself, it’s not pretty at all. I wanted to change the way people where looking at me, so in Jan. of this year I started to change the way I was eating, exercising, and more then anything my attitude about myself! So slowly the weight started coming off. I learn that I only need 1250 calories a day to eat! I worked out for 45 mins at least and before I knew it I was here:



This is me now! I am 183 lbs I have lost a total 31.4 lbs! This is my big change! I did this for not only myself, but for these people as well:


My family! These right here! My change may not seem like a lot to some, but to my family it is so much. I am able to run after my boys, I am able to play outside with them. I am able to be out in public and not feel like everyone is staring at me. These are little changes in my life.

Changes can be big or small, but one thing I have learn is that changes are to be about your life, your family, and you! Changing is a great thing! Changes are something that can happened everyday and all the time if you let it. So I ask you what have you done lately to change your life? Was it a hair cut, or maybe it was a new car, or maybe it was something big like losing weight! Whatever the change is I know that you deserved it!

I am so glad that I took the leap to change my life, because now I have shown myself that I can change my life. I know that one day, when my  son’s come to me and ask me how to change something I will be able to help them because I was not scared to change. So one more time I say take a look at these pictures here.

I know that this picture here:


is no longer me!!!!!

But this picture here is:
