I am a 36 year old mother of 6 in need of a change. I'm trying to get back to who I was when I had a life of my own. It's a bit about reclaiming myself (but not ignoring my husband and children of course).

Thus far, I have lost 15 pounds. It's been very difficult to accept how hard this journey is. When I was younger (even just 4 years ago), I could set my mind to lose weight and it would fall off with very little effort. I guess the pounds try to stick around a little more as I age. It's been a real struggle to lose the 15 pounds and I'm getting tired, but I haven't given up.

I appreciate all the stories of my fellow SP because they inspire me to continue. Whenever I am on the verge of throwing in the towel, God will lead me to someone's story of victory over the scale. It only pushes me to believe more and more in myself.

Thank you to all of you for sharing your stories.
