Have been pretty happy with my chubby self, good BP and no fat related health problems.  Have lost and gained weight consistently through out my life, so I just got to the point of thinking "I'm a BIG person, and not much will change that."  Being 5'9 and  size 18-20, I weigh more than I ever thought I would at my age.  But I was ok with it, like I said being happy, healthy and all that.  Friday was our first cold cold day and I grabbed a nice wool coat that a friend had given me last winter...last winter it fit loosely and I was comfortable in it.  This time it was a strain to get it buttoned and my arms and back were tight.  Time to wake up!  I might be happy and healthy as a fat person, but I don't like how I look or how I might end up years down the road.  So today, foregoing all those diet foods, fad diets and online diet plans (which was successful, for a time), I have decided  to renew myself.  I want to be healthy in spirit as well as body and I want to look in the mirror and see myself as I was 20 years ago, energetic and confident.  I want to know that I am feeding my body well as I possibly can and I hope that I can endeavor my DH to do the same.  I love life and I want to live actively, not reclining in a chair because my knees and ankles are bothering me.  I think I have finally woke up!
