Hi! I’m new here at the Twitloss blog and really excited to be a part of this wonderful group of ladies.
Here’s a little about me….
I’m a single (divorced) mama with three amazing kids. Yes, they really are amazing. They can drive me crazy in no time flat when they start bickering but I wouldn’t have them any other way.
I’ve been divorced for almost 4 years now. After the divorce was final I decided to lose some weight and get in shape. I joined weight watchers, dropped 30+ lbs and was starting to look and feel better about myself. I was happy with the weight I lost but somehow things have gotten out of hand again and I’ve gained back what I lost and then some.
My awesome BF bought me a Wii Fit Plus for Christmas. No, he doesn’t think I’m fat, he says I could way 600 lbs and he would still love me. (what a guy) I actually asked for him for it since I loathe exercising and I’m hoping the Wii Fit will be fun and I won’t actually think I’m exercising. We’ll see how it goes.
Another tidbit about me is that I use to smoke. I haven’t smoked a cigarette since December 31st, 2010 and although it’s very hard...I don’t ever want to start back up.
I’ve smoked since I was 13 (I’m 39 now) and it’s really taken a toll on my health. I have breathing problems and you would think I would have quit before now. Actually, I’ve quit several times in the past but something always happened and I started smoking again.
This time I really, really want to quit for good. It’s a hasty habit, it stinks, is expensive and I’m looking forward to using the money I save to buy more books. :)
I’ve heard that once a person quits smoking they tend to gain weight and I’m sure this will happen to me but I’m hoping to make better meal and snack choices to keep the extra weight at bay.
So, that’s a little about me. I’m really looking forward to 2011. I want to get healthy, fit and live life to the fullest.
