Conquering the BEAST!

SEE BELOW FOR UPDATES!!!

I have tried a great number of diets over the years, but I've decided it's time to stop dieting and change my lifestyle. I'm so tired of hearing "You have have such a pretty face" or "You'd be such a pretty girl if only...". Sometimes I wonder if they even realize just how insulting that is.

I'm happy with myself but know I need to do this for my health and just to be honest for convenience. This world just isn't built for big girls! ...

I have tried a great number of diets over the years, but I've decided it's time to stop dieting and change my lifestyle. I'm so tired of hearing "You have have such a pretty face" or "You'd be such a pretty girl if only...". Sometimes I wonder if they even realize just how insulting that is.

UPDATE January 1, 2012: I have been away from Spark for a while...about 10-11 months actually because I've had a baby! I am now however more committed than ever to finally lose this weight. I was down to my last 50 pounds to lose after losing 118 pounds when I found out I was going to have a baby. My son was born on November 20, 2011. Through the pregnancy I have put back on close to 70 pounds. For him, my new husband, AND myself I will still conquer this beast!

Reward: New Workout Video

Goal 2: Reach 275 lbs
Reward: Highlights and a trim
**MET February 2, 2012**

UPDATE January 2016: Well, once again I have been away for a while. I had another baby...a little girl this time and she is now 20 months old. I struggled for the last couple of years dealing with both Graves and Hashimotos thyroid diseases. Between the first pregnancy and my thyroid struggles, my weight had raced back up to 302 poinds-a number I swore I'd never see again. Now, finally I have had treatment to destroy my thyroid and have my medication adjusted to the point I feel somewhat normal again. I feel like I can make progress once more so I am putting my mind and my heart to it and meeting my goals for my family.
