Before I start on the new journey, let me tell you about how I got here.
I can't say that I was always heavy because I wasn't. When I was a little kid I was all skin and bones. I was the most knobby kid around. Knees and elbows sticking out, looking like I barely ate which wasn't true. I was just a very active kid. Things changed however when we moved to Michigan from Wisconsin. I'm not sure if it was the move, being new, or all the awesome food my grandma made... maybe it was a combination of all but I was slowly putting on some weight. At first it was a good thing because I needed it, and then it became too much. I remember getting teased in school and not being able to fit in and that just added to it and made me want to eat more of all that yummy food.
Fast forward a few years to high school and I had an unhealthy relationship with food. I really loved food. I still do. I love trying new food and I love eating food. I don't think that will ever change and I don't want it to. However I do know I need to find a new relationship with food where I only eat what I need to and the right stuff.
I have been on the roll-coaster of weight loss and I am ready to get off it. I have had my ups and downs and my ups again. I thought that when I got engaged and was planning my wedding things would change. I thought I would be working out more and eating better because I wanted to look amazing in my wedding dress. Well.. needless to say that didn't happen... Well the losing weight part. I think I look super amazing in my dress!!
We just came back from our honeymoon but while we were on it something clicked. I had this revelation that the reason I didn't lose weight was because I wanted him to marry me for the way I am. I didn't want to change and then have this feeling for the rest of my life that he only married me because I lost weight. No.. I wanted him to be able to accept me for who I was at that moment and love me. Every. Last. Pound. Of. Me. And guess what, he does. I love that and am very happy for that. But I still want to be the best me that I can be and now I have this drive to be the best wife that I can This is where the "New Journey" comes in.
Now is the time.
I have made up my mind to start Weight Watchers again. The hubby and I were both doing it for a few months before and while I was having success at it, he wasn't so we stopped. Now however after we talked I am going to be starting it again. We both know that it was right for me, may not be for him but it was doing me good.
My first official day on WW will be tomorrow (11-2-2015).

I have gone through and revamped my goals and have done a lot of thinking on what I want and where I want to be. I am ready for this "New Journey" as a wife, a step-mom, and Fit2BCarrie-d.
