I'm so tired of losing weight only to gain it back plus more. I want to lose it for good. I'm also using Dr. Beck's cognitive behavior therapy book and workbook so that maybe I can change the cycle of losing and gaining. I'm tired of avoiding friends that haven't seen me in a while for fear of them seeing how much weight I've put on. I also avoid the camera and have missed out on many photo memories with my daughter because I didn't want my fat body in the picture. I avoid amusement parks because the last time I went and I thought I lost enough weight I couldn't fit in the car to close the safety bar across my stomach and was requested to leave the ride in front of what seemed like hundreds of people. So I have faced reality. I can not continue on this track. If I want to live and see my daughter's children, I need to modify my lifestyle to healthy living.

Fitness Minutes: 304

My Goals:
I am determined to lose a 130lbs. and change my behavior when it come to food, which means a change in lifestyle. I'm a people pleaser and the one person I don't take care of is me. I'm now going to do more things for myself, like taking the time to eat breakfast and lunch and sit down while I eat. I'm going to treat my body like it's somebody I'm trying to please and improve my health. I would like to renew my wedding vows in a wedding gown much smaller than the one I wore 15 years ago.


My Program:
I'm following the limits of calories, fat, and protein that Sparkpeople have established. I want to continue walking at the mall and work up to 3 miles 3 times a week. On the alternate days I want to ride a stationary bike or try Zumba. I'm using Cooking Light cookbooks and Weightwatchers.
