Back On! (For the Fifth Time or More)

So Spark Fam,
I know I come and go, but this morning, I woke up with new determination and a commitment to stick to a healthy life style. I am so fat, (How fat is she?) that I look very pregnant. And people tell me so.
These last few months, I've been focusing on movement because even walking was a struggle. It sucked. I couldn't get out of my chair and walking a few yards, without sounding like an asthmatic. It was very sad and concerning.
Now, when I'm at the park, I can run after my kids, something which the other parents find rather shocking and amusing.
I am ready to make life choices that won't make me insane. My plan looks simple: I'm committed to walking or light jogging three times a week at the park for 30 minutes to an hour. I have also been cleaning my house regularly, which has always been a goal. The house is not perfect, but I am happy. It turns out, my son and I make a great cleaning team. Plus, I get some much needed movement and peace.
I am also committed to making some sacrifices, like processed foods for whole foods. Like feeling hunger between meals and only eating when I get light-headed.
This time, I"m not hoping for some idealistic body, like I have in the past. I just want to be able to move and reduce the stomach. Well, a lot needs trimming down.
I have no rewards system or goals, other than being able to move more (and bend down to tie my freaking shoes). My health is bad, folks. Real bad. But the truth is that it can get worse, and it's past time to turn things around.
Well, on somewhat upbeat note, I hope you all have a blessed day!
