Meet Jamie

Meet Jamie, she is the youngest of the six sisters. She is the one who suggested starting this blog and now has completely abandoned her wonderful sister Merrilyn in the weight loss blogging world. Jamie's weight problems are a manifestation of the current chaos in her life and she really needs to get things under control. Actually Jamie is going to stop referring to herself in the third person now because it is getting weird!

So yes, I must admit that this was my idea and I have posted nothing! But of course I have an excuse (um yes, I know that is why I am 40 lbs overweight, I always have an excuse)! I am at a point in my life where I am totally overwhelmed, we had our third child almost eighteen months ago and I feel like I have been in a child induced coma since then, I just can't seem to get it together! It didn't help that shortly after I had my baby my family went through a HUGE crisis, and food is so my drug of choice to deal with stress and depression!

So here I am fat and with an out of control life. What am I going to do now? Well, there are a few things that I feel I have to address before I can focus on weight loss, the first one is SLEEP. I happen to have two darling boys who are five and 18 months they love me so much that they want to be with me twenty four hours a day, including waking up every few hours to make sure that we are still together. Seriously, I think people think that I am exaggerating when I say I get up 3-4 times (honestly, sometimes more) every night. But when you have two kids that each get up two times a night it really is that much! Then add in that they wake up their sister who is usually a great sleeper but is beginning to feel that there is a great injustice when she has to sleep in her room while everyone else sleeps in mom and dad's room (oh yeah, you read that right, they don't just get up in the night they sleep WITH me)! It is a BIG problem and I am tackling it this week. SO I won't bore you with the details I will just tell you that there is going to be a lot of crying going on in our house this week. But I am at my breaking point this has GOT TO GET BETTER!

So this week all that is on the agenda is SLEEP, and I'm afraid that is all I can handle! Wish me luck, I am going to need it!
