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!

    Rainy day people always seem to know when it's time to call
    Rainy day people don't talk
    They just listen till they've heard it all
    Rainy day lovers don't lie when they tell you
    They've been down like you
    Rainy day people don't mind if you're cryin' a tear or two

    If you get lonely, all you really need is that rainy day love
    Rainy day people all know there's no sorrow
    They can't rise above
    Rainy day lovers don't love any others
    That would not be kind
    Rainy day people all know how it hangs
    On their peace of mind

    Rainy day lovers don't lie when they tell you
    They've been down there, too
    Rainy day people don't mind if you're cryin' a tear or two

    Rainy day people always seem to know
    When you're feelin' blue
    High stepping strutters who land in the gutters
    Sometimes need one, too
    Take it or leave it or try to believe it,
    If you've been down too long,
    Rainy day lovers don't hide love inside, they just pass it on
