Mon Histoire

It is something every woman I know fears. And it happened to me. I allowed work, pregnancy and post pregnancy to get in the way of a healthy lifestyle. My weight ballooned. I thought I looked ok. And then I saw this picture taken November 2009:

Um wow. I had a problem. Being overweight is embarrassing. It steals your joy. I began eating better. I didn’t do South Beach or Weight Watchers, I wanted to change the way that I approached food. I had no problem working out….the problem was in what and how much of what I ate. Currently (June 2010) I am 30 pounds lighter:

My journey is NOT over.
