Preparing For Battle

A battle field. That’s what I envision as I begin my battle to get my life back. I have struggled with my weight all my life. I never thought that I would weigh almost  300 hundred pounds.. I remember thinking when i weighed 190 that, that was alot.

Food has become a source of comfort for me. It hasn’t always been this way,  when I was 19 I was running several miles a day..Then I just stopped, now married and 2 kids later, I am the heaviest that I have ever been, and now the very thought of running even for a few minutes exhausts me.

I have an amazing family. My 2 daughters, Kaylie (9) and Sophia (1),  are full of energy and it’s become very hard to keep up with them. I am so tired by the time evening comes that when my husband Marc and I do want to go out on a date I would rather stay home than go out because I am exhausted.  I am tired of being on the side lines and not being able to enjoy my life and family to the fullest. 

I am tired of having to go clothes shopping because the clothes in my closet no longer fit me anymore. Tired of trying on clothes at the store for them not to fit and having to go up not just one size but two or three…

It’s time for a change, a life style change. I am fighting for my life, my husband, and my kids. I am so very thankful for this opportunity I am honored that I have gotten chosen. Thank you to his radio, Rob, the ymca, and all the other people who have made this possible. I am ready, I am prepared, and I will win this battle to regain my life. 🙂

  1. In my head the Rocky theme song played as your background music with the running of the stairs and the one two punch – you got this warrior Felicia!!!
