BLC Dazzling Diamonds, 30 Day Jumpstart & Winter 2016 5% Challenge! Go big or go home!

I've been overweight all my life. Last week I hit an all-time high. I'm determined to get this under control before it kills me! Not to mention, my toes look like sausages and that's gotta change! lol

Update: November 17, 2015-I've been going through a lot of the "it'll be ok, I'll eat a healthy dinner" moments. Or "I'll just eat what I want this weekend and start Monday." I KNOW its the wrong attitude to have, but the self-doubt and inner demon takes over and I just feel ...

Update: November 17, 2015-I've been going through a lot of the "it'll be ok, I'll eat a healthy dinner" moments. Or "I'll just eat what I want this weekend and start Monday." I KNOW its the wrong attitude to have, but the self-doubt and inner demon takes over and I just feel powerless.
One thing I've noticed, larger than life, as I've gained back these 60 lbs, is just how closely my weight is tied to my emotions! I've never really thought I was an emotional eater before, but I am. And it's not just the eating, it's the depression and the absolute lack of will to even get up off my butt and MOVE!
So I'm starting over. I'm going to take baby steps to get back where I need to be. I know I have my short-term goals set starting at 5% loss, but realistically, my first goal is 1%, then 2, then 3. And even logging streaks on here, and tracking streaks. And 10 minutes of movement a day, minimum. I WILL get back to my happy place!

Personal Information:
I'm a 43 year old mom of two. I've always been big, but big turned into really big. :P Its time to change that! Not only do I need to be smaller, I need to be healthier! Whatever weight my body naturally decides is the ideal weight for me, I'm fine with. As long as I have energy, lower my cholesterol, and I'm healthy, that's all I can ask for.
Oh...and a WAIST! lol

Glad to know I'm not the only one that thinks that way! I like to eat, but it just seems like it would be tough to stick to that many meals for me. The way I've been eating as it is I don't find myself really wanting to snack because my meals are planned and sort of timed. I don't really have a set time, but I fit eating in between other stuff that I do like walking, gym, etc. Thanks for commenting on my blog!
