Because I CAN control my weight.

My name is Chelsea. I'm a typical twenty-something college student. I've been married to my husband, Jason, for 4 years and we have two dogs, Suki and Rocko. I'm currently studying Elementary Education at Park University in Parkville, Missouri.
I've struggled with my weight most of my life. As a child, I played sports and the exercise made up for my poor diet. As I got older, the activity decreased and the calories increased. In January of 2011 was when I hit my highest weight, 210 ...
My name is Chelsea. I'm a typical twenty-something college student. I've been married to my husband, Jason, for 4 years and we have two dogs, Suki and Rocko. I'm currently studying Elementary Education at Park University in Parkville, Missouri.
I've struggled with my weight most of my life. As a child, I played sports and the exercise made up for my poor diet. As I got older, the activity decreased and the calories increased. In January of 2011 was when I hit my highest weight, 210 pounds. I vowed that I would not weigh more than my mother. With a lot of hard work, I lost 47 pounds and made it only 8 pounds from my goal weight of 155. That was August of 2011, Since then, I've gone back to school full time and have slacked on taking care of myself.
December 29th, 2012: I weighed in at 176 pounds. I try to remind myself that I have still lost a lot of weight. However, when I look in the mirror I am still not satisfied. I REFUSE to go back up a size. So I joined a gym and got back on Sparkpeople.

2013 marks a new year and a new resolve to meet new goals. My goal is to lose 26 pounds by summer. Not only for my self-image, but for my health, and for my students. I work with 5-11-year-old children; I have to be able to keep up with them, and more importantly, be a good role model for their overall health.

Here's to a new year.

"Just because we are knocked down does not mean that we are out.
We still have breath in our lungs and tears flowing down - all signs that we are alive!
Take a deep breath and be reminded that often our biggest struggles are stepping stones to our greatest victories."

“The whole idea of motivation is a trap. Forget motivation. Just do it. Exercise, lose weight, test your blood sugar, or whatever. Do it without motivation. And then, guess what? After you start doing the thing, that's when the motivation comes and makes it easy for you to keep on doing it.”
-John C. Maxwell

"The common conception is that motivation leads to action, but the reverse is true....action precedes motivation. You have to "prime the pump" and get the juice flowing, which motivates you to work on your goals. Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day."

"Making changes in your life is never an easy task. The key, however, is not to get caught up in the distance you have to go to get to where you want to be. Nor should you despair over the amount of control you have over your circumstances. Progress is made in the small, intentional steps, and chances are, you have more power than you think. By focusing on little steps you can take every day, the progress you make will motivate you to continue your journey, and eventually, you can go wherever you want to go. The important thing is simply to begin."
-Stephen Cherniske
