Goodbye Couch Potato, Hello Gym Rat!

I'm here to get control over my eating habits and my life. I'm here to lose 134 pounds that I put on in 4 years time.
I was never in great shape, always had 20 pounds or so to lose, but after I had my daughter who was 14 weeks early, I found myself depressed and turning to food for comfort. I had my son 6 months ago and spent 13 weeks of my pregnancy on bedrest with him. I'm a very Happy and Gateful person for what I have in my life. I have a wonderful, supportive Husband who I love ...

I was never in great shape, always had 20 pounds or so to lose, but after I had my daughter who was 14 weeks early, I found myself depressed and turning to food for comfort. I had my son 6 months ago and spent 13 weeks of my pregnancy on bedrest with him. I'm a very Happy and Gateful person for what I have in my life. I have a wonderful, supportive Husband who I love dearly and 2 healthy, beautiful children.
I want to be the person that I always imagined that I would be. Confident, Outgoing and Inspirational.
Right now my weight is keeping me locked into this person that I no longer recognize. I look in the mirror and I see someone else staring back at me. It's time to change. I didn't even realize how bad my weight had become till I suddenly opened my eyes and saw my reflection! It was a scary moment!
I tried LA weight Loss and Weight Watchers and Atkins and the Zone Diet over the past 4 years and failed at each one. I sat on the couch and watched The Biggest Loser and munched on whatever was in my cabinets and desired to be strong enought to do what they do everyday at the ranch. I feel that all that time I was holding myself back afraid of I dont know what. Change maybe? The hard work that it would take to get me where I want to be? I had an excuse for everything and talked myself out of things easily. NOT ANYMORE.
I just woke up one day and decided that this was it. I have this one life to live for however many years and I want to spend it with my family. I want to be there for my husband and my children for as long as possible and I dont want to feel embarassed any more. I am tired of squeezing into my jeans hoping that they will fit. I am tired of not seeing my reflecti0n, tired of being tired, and most of all I'm done with being obese.
I'm pretty sure that my tv habbits and having a comfy couch has helped me pack on the pounds.( Or just another excuse) Currently I watch: House, Nip Tuck, American Idol, The biggest Loser, Fringe, Bones, Numbers, Prison Break, Rescue Me, Jon and Kate plus 8, The Biggest Loser, Heroes, Lost, Ghost Whisperer, Deal or No Deal and even more shows. There's nothing wrong with loving a show or two but I think I watch way to much TV! Can you say Couch Potato?
