My Personal Pledge

Like most women, I have issues with my weight. Like most women, I stepped on the scale the other day and did NOT like what it had to say back. I am by all accounts a good 25-30 pounds overweight for my height of 5 feet nothing inches. I feel like a beach ball sometimes. So I am making a pledge here to myself, Shawn and our future daughter that I will loose this weight before we go overseas. I want to be someone that my daughter is proud of in all aspects.

I need LOTS of encouragement as I am not one to go to a gym or pick the healthiest thing to eat (kinda hard when you hate vegetables). Wish me luck as I head to the basement to go on to the elpictical trainer and hopefully last at least a half hour.

Good for you for making this dedication to your family! A someone who lost 35 pounds 12 years ago, I know how difficult it is to get the motivation. However, your daughter will thank you for it when she sees her most important role model taking good care of her heart, lungs and circulatory system. Don't worry so much about the numbers oon the scale, Dolores. Concentrate on the stamina you will need to take care of your daughter and that will get you through. Best of luck!
P.S. I'm a vegetarian and I dislike vegetables as well!!! I knew I liked you for a good reason. :)
