Day 03 - A picture of your inspiration for weight loss.

See a difference? My inspiration for weight loss, though it started as "I want to walk w/o my thighs rubbing together" and "I want to be able to keep up with my sons", is happiness. As a divorced, overweight mother of two sons, I wasn't happy. I loved every minute that I spent with them but when they were sleeping, or with their dad, I was lost, alone and sad. *I* had to do something for me to make *me* happy. So I hit the gym, joined an online community, took up running and FINALLY found Sparkpeople. Now, 11 years after that first picture was taken, I'm a happier person. When I'm alone, I'm still happy.
