Taking my life back

2 years ago, I was injured in an accident at work. I had a 1,440 lbs pallet of steel fall and crush my left leg. I have been off my regular job since. Then in Aug. of last year I was told I couldn't come back to work until I could do my job, which I will never be able to do again. I have let this get me down for two years, now I am going to take back what is mine. I may never return to work, but I am going to return to living.

2 years ago, I was injured in an accident at work. I had a 1,440 lbs pallet of steel fall and crush my left leg. I have been off my regular job since. Then in Aug. of last year I was told I couldn't come back to work until I could do my job, which I will never be able to do again. I have let this get me down for two years, now I am going to take back what is mine. I may never return to work, but I am going to return to living. I lost most of my so called friends after the accident, so now I talk to only family and a couple of friends that stuck by me during this. I have set a goal of losing 100lbs by Jan 1, 2014. I know I can do this, I am just needing some support and advice.

I am not shooting for skinny, I am shooting for healthy. I know I will never be a size 4 and don't want to be. I will be extremely happy at a size 10 and have a lot of weight off my bad leg. Maybe the pain will let up some..I know that no matter what size I get to, someone will make a comment about my size. I am not out to make someone elses "right" size chart, I am out to make my own. When I weighed 135 lbs. I was told that I was too fat, at 5'6" and wearing a size 5. Who is making the guidelines. No wonder people have weight issues.

My Goals:
To find something that works for me. I have heard said that you can't restrict yourself and succeed. I realize that is true. I also can't make myself eat something that I hate and expect to succeed. I will find a way to work within my means and find something that is a success, making me successful!!!

One of my favorite sayings is "Nothing taste as good as thin feels!" When I get to the point that I can print that as my moto, I will use it to remind me how far I have come! It will be my signature line. Wish me strength to achieve my goals.



My Program:
Weekly weigh-ins.
1/1/13 - 265 (down 52 from my starting weight.)

Personal Information:
My favorite encounter: As I have said I am a huge Cardinals fan. One day I was wearing a Cardinals shirt, jacket, cap and socks. I had a lady come up to me and ask if I was a CHIEFS fan, without missing a beat, I looked right at her and said sure am, I love BASKETBALL!!!!

Other Information:
I am a hard core St. Louis Cardinals Fan!!! I loved bowling before my injury and now love to play Texas Hold'em poker. I am happily married to my husband Charlie Brown. Yes that is really his name, and he is 6'8" and very few people give him crap about it!!! LOL
