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: June 1, 2016 - I did it! I reached the 100 lb mark! With today's weigh-in of 210.8, I'm officially down 101.2 lbs!!! It's been hard to stay on track, especially with all my foot issues, but regardless how slow it was (maybe it just felt slow to me because of the unusual amount of yo-yoing), I made it! Now on to Onederland! June 8th is the start of my summer challenge and I'm saying it right now, for all the world to see, I WILL make it to 199 during this challenge!!! I've got 11 weeks from today to lose 11.8 pounds. That's MORE than doable!!!

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!

    I LOVE your new page, Amy! The dragon with flowers on his head is precious!

    I hope your breathing is getting easier, and you are feeling stronger. Antibiotics are a true miracle. Lots of us would not be here without them!

    The team seems to be perking along, and the Dragons are happily chatting in the new spring nest. It's great! Amy, thank you for being the heart and soul of the Dragon team. You have set a wonderful tone, and have shaped who we are as a group in so many ways. I am so glad that, even though you are taking a much needed step back, you will still be with us. Teresa is doing a fabulous job. She is good about asking for help, so I believe the work will be spread around the leader team. This will be good!

    Take good care of yourself, Amy.

    Megan
