I am enjoying life and this journey. I decided a while back that it isn't worth it to be angry, defeated, or full of shame.

I am the result of my decisions and this is a GOOD thing. This is good because this means that I CAN and DO have the power to make change in my life and to use my life to make change.

We aren't guaranteed tomorrow. We only have right now.

I am doing this because...
I want to be healthier.
I want to be thinner.
I want my clothes to fit better.
I want to have more energy.
I want to feel stronger.
I want to have NO limitations.
I'm pretty, but I want to be red-hot sexy!

I am DONE being lazy.
I am DONE making excuses.
I am DONE huffing up a flight of stairs.
I am DONE being in pain all the time.
I am DONE eating garbage food.
I am DONE thinking I can't do this.
I am DONE thinking negative thoughts.
I am DONE feeling uncomfortable in my own skin.
I am DONE.

I AM making active choices every day.
I AM looking for excuses to exercise.
I AM able to easily climb a flight of stairs.
I AM in much less pain.
I AM eating healthy fuel for my body.
I AM positive that I CAN do this.
I AM getting more optimistic daily.
I AM loving who I am and I accept my beauty - in any shape.

I AM on my way!

    I will always be checking blogs, I know I have been neglecting it lately but I am going to stay on top of it. This is where I can go and definitely see how everyone is doing.

    Hey there! My name is Deanna, and I'm one of the Team Leaders of Fat Wives Club!! I know I haven’t welcomed you to the team yet, but I’ve been in a transition phase in my life…I have always been a working mother, and as of today, I am a SAHM!!! So needless to say, things have been VERY hectic for me over the past few weeks, and I’ve been struggling to stay on top of my duties as a Team Leader. BUT, I’m hoping you’ll accept my apologies for your late welcome, and I can’t wait to get to know you better! So, welcome to the club and I’ll see you on the threads! ~Deanna

    Welcome to the Fat Wives Club. My name is Mahala and i am one of the three coleaders. We have a lot going on in this group that will help you in this weightloss journey. One of my favorites is the one on one challenges, this really helps me make sure that I am accountable and keeps me motivated. There are also games, team challenges, motivation, and just a daily chat. Come in and make yourself at home, this is your team just as much as it is mine.
