Well I woke up to my wonderful hubby bringing me a yummy coffee in bed, then I got up fed my kids and the normal mommy thing, The kids and I are on Feb vacation this week,

I sat down and I had a bowl of raisin Bran Crunch and a banana....Ok that was good :)

Then our friends came over for a play date and we had pb&j's on wheat and cheese balls. I had a few....well that could have been a better lunch for me. but it was yummy.

Then time for snack.....OMG I love my friend she bakes Brownies for the kids to share which is awesome to start with but seeing the kids were at my house and she brought them here she's awesome. Well she also in her little bag of goodies were strawberries (fresh)  little candy toppers, fat free van fro yo. Brownie sundae's for snack oh yea Baby!!!!  And different kids of activities books for the kids.

Supper for me was a fresh salad and grilled left over chicken, and a glass of water.....:)

The story begins

Well today Feb 29th 2012 starts the 1st day of this whole experience. Here is my story....

I have 2 children who are 5 & 7 who are my world :) I'm 32 yrs old I'm a wife.

Just recently I had a sleep study to determine if I have sleep Apnea. about a week or so after the test the sleep doc calls and made a appointment to go over the results. Yesterday my husband and I went to here the news.....I have it, a mild case but I have it, I stop breathing 7-9 times an hour while I sleep,

Ok so I ask now what? What do we have to do to fix it?
Doc asks some questions about my everyday life, then says...."this is caused by weight" I am over weight, and I need to loose at least 1lb a week, that's 52 lbs in a year.If I push more then that it won't work. I have to go for another sleep test with a mask to see how much that helps before I start using it at home. 

I have to use a nasal spray now because I can't breath out my nose.
I'll have to see a nutrition therapist to help design a special diet for me, and maybe even a personal trainer, yes that sounds great but really?? It's come to this for me to take better care of my self, how can I be a good mom and wife to my family if I have this stuff going on? Well I guess in some aspect I am being a good mom cause I am trying to fix this, and loose the weight.

My plan for this blog is.....I am going to weigh in every Wed morning, and I'll keep track of it here. Its scary to have my friends and strangers know the real weight but maybe this will help me stay on track.

So for the 1st weigh in I'm at........230 YUCK!!!!
If I loose the 52 lbs in a year that will bring me too 178....:) Here's hoping

Please feel free to leave any questions or comments (nice) not Bad....
Thanks for listening to my story
