Ride the Spiral...

Over 50 lbs down, 10 to go! I'm Dani, I hail from South Florida but I've been slaving away at FSU for several years now.

In May 2008 I weighed 209 lbs. Since I was 8 yrs old I had struggled with my weight, but as I had entered college and started really stress eating, it skyrocketed out of control. I was at risk for diabetes, clinically obese, and couldn't try on clothes in a store without crying in a fitting room.

I've lost over 50 lbs since then, and changed everything about my lifestyle. Most importantly, I've changed my self perception. I have come to terms with the fact that I will never be super thin, or have six pack abs, but I can still be HOT and healthy.



I love being held accountable, so feel free to add me for mutual support! :)



Update 12/17/12: Trying to find that sweet spot where I can be healthy, strive to lose weight, but still truly be accepting and loving of my current physical shape. It's been a long rough journey, but hey, it's amazing what we can do when we put our minds to it, right?


Update 2/27/13: Instead of eating super processed foods that are cleverly labeled "diet" and "lite", I am now attempting to cook real food from scratch as much as possible, and instead of doing things like eating an entire box of "low-fat-tastes-like" cookies when I want to splurge, I will go for one absolutely delicious, baked from scratch cookie.

This is working out fairly well with my new mentality of "try to be healthy, not skinny"...I've been slowly teaching myself that calories consumed (and weight) are not the only indicators of health. Instead of hammering it into my head that "I just need to lose more weight", it's time to think "I just need to be healthier". This mindset has led to me eating fresh vegetables daily for the first time EVER, and I'm feeling better as well.

If I end up losing weight this way and make my goal weight, great, but if I stay the same weight but have fabulous health and strength, that's great too :)

I think I'll add that to my tracker too. I never really even thought about that before. But that's a good idea. And I do feel better now that I ate, and I even ate the whole thing! I don't think I've finished a meal in 2 weeks.

I have noticed my tastes changing too and I know that's part of the process as I've been there before. I did make some guacamole for my bean tacos last week and it wasn't half bad so maybe I'll try to incorporate it in more meals.

And that is really good to know! Honestly, I could just eat those fries and a salad and be happy as a lark hahahahaha!

Those are some good tips. I'm not a big fan of avacado but I have been using lentils quite a bit. I had blood work done last summer and everything came back fine but with this change in diet, who knows what it's thrown off. I just made this frozen dinner for lunch and it has beef and broccoli and I swear to you, the first bite of meat I took, I almost felt instantly better. I think I must just be lacking nutrients somewhere.

And yeah... those fries... mmmmmm :)

Oh it was! I really wasn't tempted by the junk food so much as the coffee... which I did drink probably 5 cups throughout the day (considering I woke up at 6am Friday and didn't go to bed until 4am Saturday!).

Thanks for the well wishes on the midterm. This semester has been giving me a run for my money so I'll need all the luck on the MATH MIDTERM (ugh!!!) as I can get :)
