I HAVE 100+ LBS to LOSE

I'm 25, I started on Sparkpeople in 2007, lost about 40 lbs and then lost momentum. I came back after a while and lost more weight and got down to about 235 right before my wedding in 2010. Now it's Summer 2011, I've been married 1 1/2 years and have gained a majority of the weight back.


I lost quite a lot of weight years ago doing atkins. It worked for me and I really looked great but I still felt like the fat girl inside. I didn't do it right and it didn't stick for very long. The low carb way is good for some, but there are a few things wrong with it, (for me) and I really don't think I could do it that way ever again.



I've realized I am definitely a FOOD ADDICT. I use food to make me forget stress and painful feelings. I know I go through cycles of compulsive overeating, and then if I really try it only takes me a few days to get my mindframe back to where I can eat more restrictively. It is possible. I know how easy it can be to forget the difference between HUNGER and "hunger."

I will try to eat to fuel my body rather than because I am bored or anxious. I will try not to let negativity seep in.

I have a wonderful husband who is extremely supportive. So hopefully I will be successful in getting the body back that I had when we met. (Or maybe an even better body)

I will go in small stages of weight loss rather than have one big goal a year from now. I still plan to base my success mainly on how I FEEL and how I LOOK as opposed to the number on the scale.


The quote is Albus Dumbledore, from a Harry Potter book. Yes I'm quite nerdy.




"No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path." - Buddha

    We can reverse years of damage to our bodies by deciding to raise our standards for ourselves, then living differently. Old wounds heal, injuries repair, and the whole system improves with just a few changes in what we put into our bodies and how we move them. ~Unknown

    First, it's sooo good to see you around. I hope things are going well for you.

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog to help me celebrate reaching onederland! I think I still pinch myself each time I get on the scale and see that it is still real! LOL!

    The support of my SparkFriends makes the accomplishment all the better, so thank you!

    The jury is out on the monoxide. I am still losing a lot of hair but I also have some baby hairs. The problem is that I'm losing tiny baby hair too. I'm just being patient for now. I have an annual physical coming up and I'll talk to the doc about it then. Thank you for thinking of me and asking!

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
