When did I lose me?

 I am not perfect but I always put my family before me thinking I was doing the best thing for them. After 25 years of doing this I find myself 100 + lbs overweight and with a multitude of health issues. I do not blame my family. I did it! Not all at once mind you. It was just there and I do not even know how. I just woke up one day and realized that I no longer was the mom I always strive to be. I was no longer able to run or chase or even have the strength to really do anything. I had fallen into a depression and a cycle of doing nothing and making excuses.  I had become a recluse never leaving my home and feeling sorry for myself that everyone around me had a life and friends and I had nothing. I suddenly realized I had not done my family any favors or myself by putting myself on the back burner. How unfair had I been to everyone letting myself get to this point.

 I prayed and got help for the depression and feel much better and now I have to change the physical side of all these things. I feel a bit overwhelmed at the prospect of losing that 100+ lbs and really not knowing where to start. So today is the day I get up and get moving and I know that with the help of my family and friends I will be back and better than ever because this time it is for me. I know now that if I am going to be the best mom I can be it is to be around for all the things to come. That I should not put my family through all the heart ache of watching me slowly kill myself. 
 I am strong and I will overcome with faith and prayers I will get there.
