Hi!

Welcome to my little corner. It is very much under construction!

I've always been on the heavier side. Part of my struggle has been that I had pretty severe asthma when I was growing up- to the point where I had to plan my activity very carefully. (If I was going out in the evening, I couldn't walk around the mall during the day, for example). I didn't realize how inactive I'd become- and how poorly managed my asthma was until I moved to a completely different ...
Hi!

Welcome to my little corner. It is very much under construction!

I've always been on the heavier side. Part of my struggle has been that I had pretty severe asthma when I was growing up- to the point where I had to plan my activity very carefully. (If I was going out in the evening, I couldn't walk around the mall during the day, for example). I didn't realize how inactive I'd become- and how poorly managed my asthma was until I moved to a completely different area of the country- a much drier area- and my asthma seemingly disappeared overnight. (I was 23 years old when I first felt "normal" out of breath).

I did lose a decent amount of weight but I've gained it all back and more. Losing the weight was easy because I was sharing accommodations with others that involved sharing meals for the most part. I would eat until I was satisfied and then my roommate would finish the rest. (It was a great arrangement).

I'm a musician (French Horn, Piano, Voice- in that order) but that's not my day job! I really work for the government, which is very satisfying. Scottish Country Dancing is definitely high on my list of favourite things to do! I'm also an avid reader, and cross-stitcher.

I thought I added this yesterday but I guess I forgot to save it. (Kind of typical of my technological gaffes).

I've been thinking about setting some mini goals and rewards. Here's what I've got so far:

237 lbs (-20): a brand new spunky haircut- MET 2008/12/01 (235 lbs)
200 lbs: new runners
175 lbs: Knee high boots (if my calves are small enough!)
150: Shopping spree!!!

I haven't done as well as I would have liked through this winter. It wasn't a waste because I did do a lot of learning. I also made a lot of improvements to my life that don't involve my weight loss goals. (I may not have been especially active on SP, but I did continue logging my food and activity). I have regained 10 lbs. However, I have kept off 17 lbs.

I will not give up.

August 3, 2009

This year has been the Year of Self Improvement for me. I've taken a hard look at my finances and have plan to get out of debt AND have enough saved to return to New Zealand within the next three years. I've made significant improvements in my bad habits. I've learned how to take care of my living space, including a major purge of all my old junk. I'm doing better at taking care of my body: flossing, moisturizing, being careful about sun exposure, etc.

I've begun to love myself just as I am. That doesn't mean I think my weight is okay. It's still in the red zone. But I forgive myself and I'm committed to changing the habits that got me here. I deserve a strong, healthy body. I'm worth it.

I'm still here. I'm still plugging away. I'm enjoying a real burst of motivation this past few weeks. Now I just have to harness it.

I'm committed- no matter how long it takes, no matter how many setbacks I encounter. I deserve to have a healthy body that works well.

There have been a lot of changes in my life over the past couple of years that have precluded me from focusing wholly on my health. Some of the burdens have lifted, though, and I feel more ready to tackle my health than ever.

I can do this.

I will do this.

2014 will mark BIG positive changes towards me achieving a strong, healthy body.

Thanks so much for the goodie!! and the thoughtful advice on my blog about eating too much. I think you were completely right. I'm so much better today without even thinking about it. It's hard to leave a job I had for so long for something unknown, now that I know a little about the new place i'm feeling much mroe secure!

Thanks for your comment on my blog. Looking forward to seeing my therapist tomorrow and talking through some of this, cause yeah, it's definitely a FUNK that I'm in. But at least I know it early and can try to deal with it. I'm just very unhappy at my job right now, so it makes coming back even worse since my time away was SO wonderful!
