Feeling victorious after my very first outdoor run, and only my third off-treadmill run ever! (Gym class does not count.)





Progress Pics - 183 lbs, late February 2010. I got brave enough to wear shorts instead of pants.





Me (with my cousin) hating life at over 210lbs, my heaviest. Christmas 2004 I believe.



I have 19 pics in my gallery

I want the outer me to no longer prevent the inner me from sharing my awesomeness with the world.

I feel most powerful doing yoga and stretching in nothing but a sports bra and gym pants... in the privacy of my own home with no mirrors or people around. :)

I love me in all my perfect imperfectness. Do you love you?

I am a DONE girl:

I am DONE hiding behind my weight.
I am DONE believing I can't.
I am DONE waiting for someone else ...

I am a DONE girl:

I am DONE hiding behind my weight.
I am DONE believing I can't.
I am DONE waiting for someone else to take me by the hand and lead the way.
I am DONE being afraid of what MIGHT happen.
I am DONE letting life go by while I refuse to reach out and grab it.
I am DONE eating simply because "I deserve it."
I am DONE being ashamed of my honkytonk badonk-adonk and child-bearing hips!
I am DONE being the fat girl.

I love travelling - new adventures, new experiences, and new people.
I am an aspiring triathlete. Still a long way to go, but at least I am actually doing something about it.

My Goals:
I want to be able to run as far as I want for as long as I want.

I want to feel (and look) fit and strong and lean.

I want to wear a single digit size. (I've NEVER worn a single digit size.)

I want to complete marathons, triathlons, and maybe even ironmans.

I want my belly button to look "normal"!

I want to have an outside that no longer prevents me from showing off who I am inside because I am awesome!

My Program:
*Move my body more.
*Eat less.
*NO EMPTY CALORIES.
*Focus on FUELING, not feeding.
*Listen to what my body wants. It's pretty smart. The important part is not ignoring it.
*Keep my knees and back strong. Previous injuries require this.

Personal Information:
~ I am Canadian and proud of it!
~ I love travelling and will take any trip that promises adventure. I am not too big on travelling just to sitesee.
~ I love dogs and am severely allergic to cats. Sorry cats.

Other Information:
- I could live off chocolate, cheese, and multigrain rolls if I had to.
- Ignore my start date. My REAL start date (this time) is approximately 10-10-09.

Hey girlie! Just had to tell you that the red and the blue floor length dresses from the pictures on my page that you liked so much before are both going in the donate bin! Finally have to let them go :( But that means when I need a fancy dress, its shopping time!

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out" emoticon
