Just a normal me

I am restarting my weight loss journey here. I was doing Weight Watchers which worked wonderfully for me. Unfortunately, I couldn't afford it any more. I had gained some back and decided that I couldn't continue on the way I was going. If I did, I would end up back where I was and I cannot do that again. I was unhappy, unsure and uncomfortable. This is me taking control again.

This was written a while ago and it still is valid. I am starting the for the last time.

My Goals:
I will be doing this for the last time. I have yet to ever reach my goal weight because of allowing myself to use my mistakes as excuses to become out of control. This won't happen anymore.

Personal Information:
I am a southern living yankee. Meaning I grew up in the north, moved down here about 6 years ago and now I get cold at 60 degrees :o

I firmly believe that feeling happy inside your skin is a choice that only you can make. Positive affirmations are key... looking at yourself in the mirror and OUT LOUD telling yourself, "Hey, I'M here for you. I love you. I AM beautiful, I AM a success, and even if I don't reach my ideal weight I am still worth loving."

It is incredible how much of a weight off your shoulders doing this will remove, you will feel lighter and happier. And knowing there is a community here to encourage you along they way, and especially if there is Christ in your heart, you can feel safe that you are not alone. Chat with me anytime, I believe in you. - Elaine

I saw a post you had written - I don't know when - about being single and doing this alone. I know what you mean, and I also know what you mean about the re-starts. I joined SP in January 2011 and right away I lost about 35 lbs because I wanted it so badly that I was logging everything and doing fitness daily - I even began running (slowly, mind you) and I started competing with myself to be faster than I was the time before. Then my dad died and I went into a deep depression, and I got back up to where I was when I started. I was so discouraged, but I decided to try again. I know I am not giving it 100% like I had been before and like I know I should be, and like I hope to be again - SOON! I have lost 6 lbs since I started trying to lose again in February, which is better than gaining, which is what I have been doing consistently for the past 23 months.

Sorry for the novel. Maybe we can chat sometime and try to give each other some encouragement, if you want.
