I’m Sonya and I’m overweight.
All of you know that I DEARLY hate to post pictures of myself, but I have to for my LipSense pictures. I’m going to post a picture of me in some clothes that I could wear three years ago when I met Michael. Believe me, I was overweight then too, but these are the clothes I still had in my drawer. You’ll notice there is no smile 🙂
I’m posting this because I’m starting a diet plan tomorrow with a wonderful coach. I will be on a weight loss journey Lesley Weiss Zwick and I’m on a 5 and 1 program. That means I’ll eat 5 of products a day and a lean and green meal per day. It’s 6 small meals per day. That sounds like more than I eat now really, or at least more often.
I really need to lose this weight because of my arthritis. It is SO hard to carry the extra pounds and to have the type of arthritis I have. I don’t think you can name a joint that I haven’t had a steroid shot in. It hurts me terribly to get up in the mornings out of bed. Sometimes, I just lay there and wait until I can’t survive if I don’t get up and go to the bathroom. It would be funny if it didn’t hurt so much.
I really want Gracie to see me living a healthier life. I want her to pick up healthier eating habits. She has to be tested frequently for arthritis and goes to LeBonhour for her check ups. I don’t want her to end up living the live that I have led myself into. Michael is already a very healthy eater and is a carpenter (always on the go). He’s still the same size he was in high school, really!
I’ll post my results each week, maybe more, looking for encouragement. Guys, I’m going to need it! I love all my readers and you know it. Pray for me, stop by and just say you are thinking about me. I’d appreciate anything.
I’m very excited about the journey I’m about to begin with Lesley. My family is cheering me on, join them! If you would like to take Lesley’s FREE well being evaluation, you are more than welcome too!
