...what it was like to gallop a horse?
...what it was like to ride a wicked roller coaster?
...what it was like to *want* to go clothes shopping?
...what it was like to not be sick/hurting all the time?
...what it was like to actually have fun?

I do. Those are the things I desperatly long for in my life again, and I hope that with this place and support, that I will be able to have them again before I forget what it was all like.

I updated and changed my ticker on Jan 29th to reflect the highest weight that I was some 4 years ago. 2 years ago it was 355, but the highest was 370, I started over this year at 330. So why did I change it for? To remind myself of how far I have truly come, so that I don't see this as another "Oh, I failed...guess I start over at this weight..." but rather as a slow but steady continuation of this weight-loss journey. It may have taken a few starts and stops over the last several years, but I've gone from 370+ to 317 as of this morning. And I need to remind myself of where I was and where I am now.

Fitness Minutes: 7,096

My Goals:
My main goal is to get back to a point where I can enjoy life.

I know many people say: "Don't wait to live." But there is not much that you can do at nearly 400 (my heighest) pounds. I can't do what I love. Any of it. I just want to be happy and healthy.

My Program:
Eating well and as clean as I can. Strength training 3 days a week, and cardio for at least 25 minutes 6 days a week. I'm sure the exercise will have to be bumped up in time, but for now this is where I'm at.

I lost 50 pounds last year, but gained most of it back, time to start anew.

Rewards for weight loss:

320 - A new MLP for my collection
310 - A new top
300 - Hair highlights
280 -A new dress
260 - Night out W/ friends
240 - 2 shirts from We love fine
210 - Spa Day
180 - Sky Diving
160 - A horseback riding holiday in Ireland and my own horse.

Personal Information:
I love to write and draw and have written 2 novels. I live with my husband in Sydney Australia.

Other Information:
Moved to Australia May 1st.

My highest weight that I can remember was about 370 pounds.

    Success is not a race, be patient.
    Success leads to success.
    Success is always a work in progress.
    Success doesn't come to you--you go to it.
    Success is a journey, not a destination. Focus on the process.
    Some people dream about success... while others wake up and work hard at it.
    Success is achieved and maintained by those who try-and keep trying.
    Everyday is a good day to SUCCEED!
