i'm okay with it. its my story - not my legacy.
i get to decide what my legacy is :)
How will I live on when I'm not here? That's easy - in my daughter. She is my legacy. Everything I do now is for her, even if I don't realize it.
I want her to remember me as a mom who was out playing with her, not out of breath. Not needing to ice the knee. I want her to have memories of me like I have of my dad - active, healthy, and there.
I haven't talked about my weight loss lately because there hasn't been any. My vacation this past week threw everything out the damn window. I drank, ate leftover birthday cake, napped, ate fried seafood and pizza. I did nothing to help myself.
But when I went grocery shopping this weekend (BY MYSELF....it was AWESOME), I stocked up on veggies, fruits and lean meats. It was such a good feeling to open my fridge and see healthy options.
Now's the time. I weigh 238 pounds. If I lose 53 pounds, I'll weigh 185 pounds and Marc's agreed to baby #2 at that weight (he also wants me to run a 5K in 27:31...HA).
My legacy starts now.
