CaperGrrl!! Losing weight and keeping fit in Cape Breton

I'm a late 20's lady who ALWAYS struggled with my weight. Through childhood and adolescent obesity, to a starvation diet in my early 20's that resulted in a 65 pound weight lose, I've never had a healthy relationship with food or excercise. Now that I'm finished school, secure in my career and getting married next year, I feel that it's time to get my health, fitness, nutrition and body image under control! I've gained back a fair amount of the weight I lost in my early 20's, and even though I ...
I'm a late 20's lady who ALWAYS struggled with my weight. Through childhood and adolescent obesity, to a starvation diet in my early 20's that resulted in a 65 pound weight lose, I've never had a healthy relationship with food or excercise. Now that I'm finished school, secure in my career and getting married next year, I feel that it's time to get my health, fitness, nutrition and body image under control! I've gained back a fair amount of the weight I lost in my early 20's, and even though I wasn't living a healthy lifestyle when I was at my lightest weight, I still yearn for that body back. My new goal is centered around self-love, being fit and healthy. So... here we go!

My Goals:
Goals are to be healthy and happy, even though that is easier said than done. I'm getting married next year and I would like to feel confident and sexy on my wedding day.

My Program:
I joined a local gym and I've been tracking my food intake with the nutrition tracker. I've done weight watchers a few times before, and I find that tracking my meals really helps keep me on the straight and narrow.

Personal Information:
Moved to Cape Breton a year ago after I graduated school. I managed to pack on about 15 pounds while at school, and another 15 since starting work. Not Good! I've had a few failed attempts at dieting in the past year, always falling off the wagon (hard) and then giving up entirely. Well, not anymore!

Other Information:
I've decided to make some rewards for myself for reaching my goals...

The first one is a little bit of a cheater goal.. I already know that It's coming regardless :P

150 pounds- NEW PUPPY!!! We pick him up on August 20th, to I have to work hard to meet this one!

142- New Haircut. I've had a pixie style cut for the last few years, and my fiance asked me to grow it out for a change. Well I haven't it cut in about 6 months, so it's starting to need a new style.

137- FINAL GOAL!! My bridesmaids are taking me out for a girls night!!! Not that their are a lot of swinging spots in Cape Breton, but it will be fun to let loose a little :D

3 months maintaining my weight... Wedding dress shopping! I wont let myself try on any dresses until I have been maintaining my goal weight.. I think thats a pretty strong motivator

Thanks for commenting on my blog and for the words and actions of encouragement. I appreciate it! I was a long standing member of the YMCA but gave it up because I just wasn't seeing results anymore. So this time I'm trying to do my own thing. Today is supposed to be a rest day but since I've had 2 unscheduled "rest" days TODAY is now a cardio day. I'll let you know if I get that accomplished. Thanks!

Wow thanks so much for the encouragement. It really is nuts how much people can change towards you if you add or gain some weight. Pretty ridiculous. But I like to think that the way I am rubs off on people sometimes - I'm not perfect, but I do smile at everyone I see. I don't even think about people's looks unless it's something extreme or deliberate. Hopefully those people with crappy attitudes will take that smile they didn't deserve and pass it on to someone else.

And thanks for reaching out to be a friend to a newbie. Best of luck to you
