How the Journey Started

On November 13, 2008 I was in nursing school and my entire class got measured for new nursing uniforms. We all tried them on at the same time and I had to ask for an XL size in front of my peers. I could no longer put my head in the sand and pretend I was the same size as everyone else. That was the day that changed my life.

I went home and after crying I decided to do something about it. I joined Weight Watchers online and began my journey. First, I did something I had not done in a very long time. I got on a scale and AHHHH 196 lbs!!! So that was my starting point. I can say that with honesty now, but for many years I was not able to be honest with anyone, not even myself about my weight.

So, my first lesson, was the first step in this journey is to get honest. I told my husband my true weight, not 5-10 lbs less, but my actual weight.

What I hope to share in this blog is everything I have learned, my experiences, thoughts, recipes, tips and favorite foods. I look foward to hearing everyone's thoughts and opinions. I do not claim to be perfect, or to follow a perfect diet. I'm just a former fat girl doing it one day, one meal at a time.
