A little about me…

My name is Lindsay. I am 30yrs old. I have recently begun to change my life around to be more healthy again. I have for the past 4yrs been extremely overweight, depressed about it, hating myself over it and doing absolutely nothing to change. I for some reason found it comforting to soak in my own sorrows and eat myself into oblivion.

Well no more!!! I have woken up and have started to work on becoming part who I used to be and love.  Weight Watchers has come to my work and I joined that. Now I will never say that I am a Weight Watchers fanatic but the group setting is great and being accountable for something is even better. I need that constant encouragement and “checking up” on my weight if you will. For right now, that is how I feel most sufficient. I am starting to reincorporate going to the gym back into my life. It’s alot harder finding time to work out with a family then it was over 4yrs ago. This so far has been my hardest struggle.

I am learning to eat healthy, organic, more natural foods..call it what you want but i’m trying to turn away from a lot of processed foods. I have found a ton of recipes on here which I am very excited about.

I have a 4yr old son, Luke, who is my world. He is a crazy, outgoing, fun spirited little boy who thinks he is a power ranger and wants to fight the bad guys and save the world! He has ADHD so my life can be kind of hectic..espcially when he is having a bad day. He is  GREAT child, I really cannot complain.

I am still with Luke’s father, Luke (sr.) and we own a house together. Our relationship is a roller coaster sometimes. During my sulking and depression we were on the verge of splitsville. I hated myself and everything around me and was full of negativity. yes, you could’ve called me debbie downer. Now, our relationship has completely changed for the better but with a small few quirks we can easily (hopefully) make better. We both love each other very much but we are so much alike i think we sometimes clash.

I am an English major and love to write. I have always written in a journal and now I decided i would try blogging. So I figured now would be a great time to blog about my life and my reinvention of myself 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! It’s so awesome that you’re working toward better health. Me too… it’s a long process for me, with a lot of back and forth, but I’m still trying!

      I feel the same way !!! back and forth back and forth. One good day, the next bad. If i could stop being such an emotional eater or eating out of boredom I think I would be a lot better off. Some days I seriously have NO will power!! But I keep on going rather than giving up!! Enjoy your day and hope to talk soon!
