I changed my background so I can keep my eye on the prize!!!!

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: 4/16/11-I'm down 16 lbs and I weigh in again Monday. Hopefully I'll be down some more. I've realized in these last couple of weeks that not only do I have to change the way I eat (and what I eat), I have to completely change the way I LIVE! I can't expect to lose weight ...

Update: 4/16/11-I'm down 16 lbs and I weigh in again Monday. Hopefully I'll be down some more. I've realized in these last couple of weeks that not only do I have to change the way I eat (and what I eat), I have to completely change the way I LIVE! I can't expect to lose weight and keep it off for good if all I do is follow another diet that I'll end up hating and don't add daily exercise, no matter how much I don't want to do it. This isn't a perfect world where all you have to do is sit on your butt and THINK about exercise and the inches melt off. lol I actually have to MOVE!!! Judging from reading others' pages and posts, I'm assuming that at some point, I'll learn to like exercise. I'm not there yet, but I do have to say, I hate it less than I used to. I don't know what the difference is this time, but I honestly feel that this is it. This is for real this time. Somehow, something in my brain snapped and I FEEL like this is for life now. Every time I've "dieted" before, all I ever did was think about food. It consumed my every waking moment. Its different this time. I can't explain it, but its very exciting! I don't feel obsessed about food this time. Yet another reason I think its for real this time.

Update: July 4, 2011-I made it past 50 pounds lost! 3 months and 1 week into Spark!!! My birthday is December 17th, so I'd like to be as close to 100 pounds down as I can get by then!

Update: January 12, 2012-Due to a 4 months "break" from September to January, I not only didn't hit 100 down by my birthday, but I also managed to gain 10 back. :( FYI-a break from exercise and healthy eating is NOT a break, its a lazy spell and should be avoided at all cost! lol

Personal Information:
I'm a 41 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

Absolutely I'm happy about rain! I mean, I like it in general but California is experiencing a big drought this year so trust me- rain is a good thing right now!

Hi Amy! My week is quite good yet. :) Went walking early in the morning again and just updated my FitBit tracking. Somehow I don't get how the FitBit calculates the burned calories. They turn out much too high. Do you have the same problem? Oh, and my thighs are sore. :D I hope your hip is doing better. I wish you a wonderful day!

Thanks for the add! We started out at a similar weight and we're pretty close now, too!

Yeah, sometimes the FitBit can be a little tricky. But I'm sure it can benefit us a lot. ^_^ emoticon
