In a world with a 4 year old, a 3 year old, a 16 month old, a 3 month old and two soldiers you never know what misadventures await. Life is always springing the unexpected and I want to share them with you. Welcome to my world.

The Heart of Change

When I stepped on the scale at my Dr's office on January 4th, I could hardly believe what was so blatantly staring me in the face. My weight had gone up and gone up nearly 16 lbs since I'd been in the month before. I was shocked to say the least. If I'd been alone I would have cried, instead I sucked it up and continued on with the rest of my appointment. But it was a turning point for me. I didn't know if my weight was causing more problems with my Fibromyalgia, but I knew that whether it was or not, I needed to make a change because being overweight wasn't doing me any good. Now all I needed was a starting point.
Not great photo but a more recent one.
The problem was I had no idea where to start. I mean its all good to start a 'new' diet, a 'new' workout but you have to be persistent. Really the first thing you need to do is pick a program and there are so many out there these days that one gets overwhelmed by the choices. How was I to know what would really work for me? The plans, ideas, workouts were enough to make me dizzy. Oh did I mention money? It seems that all of these programs cost a pretty penny.

Yes, I had a lot of decisions, but I did make one, eventually. I had been in contact with a super amazing woman, Melissa, who happened to be a coach for Beachbody. I had talked with her on and off for the past year. I loved seeing how enthusiastic she was/is about what she does. She was super awesome about answer my millions of questions and was uber patient with me. I had talked to her about joining back in August, but I had found other things to spend my school money on. Not to mention I hadn't really resolved to lose any weight, not really.

Seeing the scale jump so drastically, I knew that that it was time. I needed to do more than just 'play' at losing the weight, I needed to do it now. I'd made the decision and yet, I was scared. I talked it over with my Hubby and deliberated about it. It was still on the expensive side, but I had the money and Melissa even had a way for me to save $20. So I took the plunge and sent her the message that I was ready.

And ready I am. I'm scared but I'm ready. So today I start my weightless journey and I'm starting the 21 Day Fix. For the next 21 days I'm going to post about my successes and my failures. I want to share my journey because perhaps it will inspire you to take the plunge for whatever change needs to be made in your life, (be it weight loss, going back to school, whatever it is). I promise I'll take time to write about my family and our adventures, but I need to include this, because this is apart of my adventures just the same as the rest.

Welcome to my journey!
