Hello and welcome. Greetings and salutations.
I had planned to start this blog with a “hello and welcome to my site” post. But as I sat here trying to put it together, I realized that as I begin this journey, I wish there was one thing I did not do.
You see the name on that photo?
More to Life than Chocolate was my old weight loss blog name. When I started writing more recipes on there I realized I really wanted to do a food site. So, M2L turned in to YUM eating. At least the food stuff did.
I tried to keep More to Life going. Talk about the food issues, my battle with PCOS, depression and the back and hip problems. But, when it came time to renew the domain, I was so down on my depression and mental health issues that I just could not keep it going. So, I let the domain expire and moved the posts around. I tried to restart the diet blog and call it Ignite your Motivation. But, again, I just couldn’t get myself on track mentally to keep up with a health blog.
Now, here I am, roughly 4 months away from my 40th birthday.
A few years ago I faced some pretty heavy demons. When I posted that, I had no idea what else was in store for my life. A LOT happened. And I dealt with all of that by eating.
Now, I am the heaviest I have ever been and probably the most miserable.
I don’t want to live in this body anymore.
5 days ago I started Weight Watchers for the millionth time. I am determined to regain my Lifetime status once and for all. To get there I need to drop almost 90 pounds.
This blog is going to be about my battle. To take my life back and 40 and beyond.
