My journey to better health...

Hi, I'm Monica

I have been fighting with weight issues ever since I can remember! My memories of first grade are summed up mostly with the voices of other children singing, "fatty-fatty-2X4... can't get through the bathroom door"!!

Hi, I'm Monica

I have been fighting with weight issues ever since I can remember! My memories of first grade are summed up mostly with the voices of other children singing, "fatty-fatty-2X4... can't get through the bathroom door"!! I've never been considered obese, but always over-weight. It has affected my self-esteem tremendously and I have made some very poor life-choices because of it. I have drowned myself in self-pity and allowed myself to become depressed about it to a point of almost ruining my marriage.

I've been a member of SP since May 2007 but it was not until May 2008 that I finally made up my mind that enough is enough!! So I joined WW on-line and the real journey began. I'm SO DONE with being FAT! (oh! I said a BAD word!!)

The road has not really been that rough since I joined WW, though I have fallen down many times. But I will keep getting up, shaking off the dirt, and going on ahead. I will NOT look back and I will NOT give up! (Did I say I'm DONE???) It's time for a lifetime lifestyle change.... IT'S ALL UP TO ME! I'm the only one who can do it! And... NO MORE EXCUSES!! : )

With all that said... HAPPY TRAILS!

Starting weight: 191.2 (May 08)

Now, for some inspirational stuff.....

"There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."
- Kenneth Blanchard

It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed.
-- Napoleon Hill
(I think this is true!!)

To get what we've never had, we must do what we've never done.
-- Anonymous

I've come to realize that the difference in success or failure is not how you look, how you dress, or how you're educated.
It's how you think! -- Mac Anderson

I always wondered why somebody didn't do something about that, then I realized I was somebody.
-- Lily Tomlin

We can do anything if we stick to it long enough.
-- Helen Keller

In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins…not through strength but by perseverance.
-- H. Jackson Brown

Never ignore a gut feeling, but also never believe that it's enough.
-- Robert Heller (adaptation)

If you will spend an extra hour each day of study in your chosen field, you will be a national expert in that field in five years or less.
-- Earl Nightingale

Life doesn't require that we be the best, only that we try our best. Strive for excellence, not perfection.
-- H. Jackson Brown Jr.

Try not to become a person of success, but rather try to become a person of value.
-- Albert Einstein

My Goals:
*Good health
* Regular exercise
* Self-satisfaction
*To be a loser rather than a quitter!
*By October 2009, I want to run in a 1/2 marathon in preparation for a marathon

My Program:
I started with Weight Watchers on-line 25 May 08. I'm doing the CORE program.

I have just started doing a "Gym-less" interval workout that I plan to do every other day. The other days, I will continue to walk and do strength building exercises.

I give my goals to God each day in prayer and ask for His strength to do what I need to do to make my body be a more presentable temple for Him.

Personal Information:
I love God and I love my family and friends. Now, I just want to love myself!

Other Information:
I met my Canadian husband while on vacation in Cancun. It was the best vacation ever! Our children are grown, so it's just the 2 of us now. When I met my DH, I weighed 148 lbs, but had been doing the diet pill thing. I will never do that again.. it's just not healthy! But I do want to get back to that weight again and I WILL! It's a DONE deal!
