Here i am. Losing weight sucks. But being overweight sucks more. I have struggled with weight issues since I was 11...but when I look back at pictures I realize that the problems are more in my head than based in reality. Somewhere along the line I started believing I was fat and I've never really changed that belief regardless of my actual weight. Truth is, I now have an actual reason to believe it. Call it sell-fulfilling prophecy; 2 weeks ago I weighed 281lbs.....probably about 145lbs more ...

So now I will start a journey I've begun many times before, somehow find the motivation to believe, once again, that I can do this.

Thanks for your continued support!

That's pretty cute about your daughter (I'm sure you don't find it so cute anymore) but from an outsiders point who doesn't have to deal with it all the time... it made me chuckle. emoticon

Thanks again for reading my blog on the winding road. I really am sure Sparking some every day is what is keeping me rolling forward instead of giving up (again). When I visit the site, I visit the Community, and that connection somehow keeps me ... um ... connected! You are part of that connection and I really value you!
