Welcome to my new blog, though I am not new to blogging.  I've decided to start this blog, just to focus on my out of control weight problem, which is the Monkey On My Back.  I chose "No More Monkey On My Back" for my blog title because my everyday struggles with my weight has been a burden for so long, and has over powered me.  I have tried and tried and tried to lose weight and I may lose 1 to 3 pounds and I stop and give up.  From this day on, I say "NO MORE".  I'm done with my weight and I'm done with this monkey on my back.  I'm 34 years old and I want to feel beautiful and I want to be able to play and run with my children.  I'm also tired of feeling ashamed, embarrassed and not confident about myself.  I hate looking at my pictures, and knowing this is how people see me everyday.

So today, is a new day, even though it's half over already, it don't matter.  Today is the day I'm saying good-bye to this monkey and welcoming the life I deserve.  I know God is by my side, and he will guide me through the tough and yet rewarding journey.   This is my life, this is my chance to change it and make it better.  I CAN DO THIS!!

My first step is to get on those scales and weigh myself.  Something that I don't like to think about, but, I HAVE to face my fears and stand tall.

My second step is set some goals.

My third step is change some of my lifestyle that I have been living.  For instance, no more being on the computer for 8 hours a day.  What's the deal with that anyway?  There is more to life then a computer, and I need to live it!

My fourth step is take on new challenges.

My fifth step is to balance my life out.

These are the five steps that I'm going to constrating on.  I have no doubt, as long as I stay postivie, motivated and love myself, I will find what I've been looking for.  So here I go.....
