Jan 22, 2010 Starting weight 414

My name is Sandy. I am married. I work as a pharmacy tech and I am on my feet constantly. Unfortunately, my schedule is all over the place and I can not regulate my meal and exercise times.

I have always been over weight. I have been healthy, or as healthy as a fat person can be. No health issues that I know of but my body is sure letting me know as I get older that it's TIRED of carrying this fat around. My feet are going to ...
Jan 22, 2010 Starting weight 414

My name is Sandy. I am married. I work as a pharmacy tech and I am on my feet constantly. Unfortunately, my schedule is all over the place and I can not regulate my meal and exercise times.

I have always been over weight. I have been healthy, or as healthy as a fat person can be. No health issues that I know of but my body is sure letting me know as I get older that it's TIRED of carrying this fat around. My feet are going to give out on me one day soon if I don't finally get this off. My body has become stiff, probably with the onset of arthritis from my fat breaking it down.

I just want to feel good. I want to look good. I know that once I lose this weight I will have sag and bag but I want to know what it would feel like on my chest to take a breath that isn't labored. TO have it flow in and out of me easily. To walk up stairs and not huff. To jump into a pickup truck and not have to pull myself up with all my might into the cab because it sits too high off the ground.

Ive come a long way but I still have a long way to go. I've got to "pick my hard."

Add me as a pal, shoot me a message, ask me ANYTHING and if I know I'll get back with ya. Im on social media sites too so if you got this far and need a buddy hit me up!

Personal Information:
Im 46 years old looking to be fit by the time I hit 50. Im married the 2nd time around to David and getting ready to celebrate our 6th anniversary on June 27 2015. I have 2 children from a previous marriage. I have a son Jake in the US Army and a daughter Molly working her way through college and she's a mommy of my beautiful grand daughter Aubree. You'll see lots of pics of them all :) We have 2 pets. A yorkie poo and a jack russell mix that is a puppy and chewing EVERYTHING. I may just have to ask for a new dinette set after he gets out of this stage. ;) I work as a pharmacy tech, constantly on my feet taking steps but not really pushing the envelope so to speak. I like to draw, create things with my hands and imagination. Shopping woo hoo. But shopping with the husband is like hunting with the game warden. *sigh*

Other Information:

Ummm...just an average person getting by the best way I can.

Ive hit the -100 pounds mark a few times now I need it to be behind me moving to the -150.

I love your blog, and that you're sharing your story. Gaining back 80 lbs + 20 more totally threw me. Like, years went by before I took any real steps, which just happened last week, when I came back here. Anyway, thank you again!

A Quote from -- Erma Bombeck

You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.

Patriotism is great but WATCH THOES CALORIES !! emoticon

Congratulations on all the hard work. I've been there, too; lost the same 100 lbs a few times. Right now I am working on maintaining, so I know how you are struggling. Hang in there. It's worth it.

I started seriously working on my weight several years ago now, with the same thought in mind... I want to be a healthy weight and looking good for my 50th birthday. I had planned to go to Vegas with my girlfriends. But it all fell apart, and I gave up, and I gained most of it back. I am now 53, and I'm at it again.

Don't give up your goal, keep working at it, it will pay off and you will feel even more fantastic than you do dropping the 100 lbs. I'm rooting for you!!
