Don't blink. Whatever you do, don't blink.

Allons-y!

Clearly, I'm a Dr. Who fan; however, I think the words at the top of my page are a fitting tribute to my battle with food. Not weight. Food. Weight doesn't make me fat, food does. Thus, the Weeping Angels are a metaphor for food in my life (and really, for those in the Whoverse, is there anything truly scarier?). I have to stay vigilant and not blink or I'm a goner.

I believe vigilance is the key to this journey and complacency is the lock. (Wow, I'm ...

I believe vigilance is the key to this journey and complacency is the lock. (Wow, I'm just full of metaphors.) I never struggled with weight growing up. In fact, I was downright scrawny. It wasn't until my late 20's that I started having problems. Since then, I've been within 15 pounds of goal (numerous times, *sigh*), and start getting complacent. I'm sure in psychobabble this would be called "self-sabotage."

With all of this knowledge at my fingertips and years of analyzing my eating habits, triggers, etc., you'd think I'd have this thing down pat. Alas, not so much. So, here I am making my way in this world today, taking everything I've got (any Cheers fans out there?).

I need to refocus on me. Actually, I need to find a new motivation--clearly what worked a year and a half ago, isn't working now.

My Goals:
I'd love to get healthy without relying on willpower alone. It's so exhausting to stay focused (no blinking!). If someone knows the answer, please share. lol

I want...
...to improve my 5K pace.

...to workout AT LEAST 30 minutes 4 times a week. Obviously, more is great, but I want my minimum to be attainable.

...my inner thighs to be enemies and never touch again.

...my belly button to be shallow and not the abyss.

...my skin and hair to glow with health.





Other Information:
I'm a total geek and love Dr. Who, Firefly, The Big Bang Theory, Harry Potter, Fringe, Highlander (TV Series), and lots more.

I love to read a variety of genres--even getting into some non-fiction.

Good luck with the 50 pounds by July! I hope you reach that goal. I'm glad you're not starving yourself and still trying to stick to 1200 calories a day. No carbs after lunch sounds like an interesting plan. I love my carbs, I'm not sure if I could stick to that but I just may try. I really have more than 5 pounds to lose. My goal is 20-25 but right now I'm just trying to lose the weight I've gained the past few months.

Great job losing 8 pounds since March 16th! That is awesome. Eating habits are the hardest to change so focusing on them first before exercise is a good plan. I think that is my biggest problem. I can go to the gym every day no problem but eating good is difficult.

Good to hear from you! I always smile when I see your name. :-)

You're BFF is right about not comparing anyone but ourselves. It's just difficult to do at times.

How are you? How's life?

emoticon For the comment on my blog! Yeah, I've been through a lot but don't talk about it too much. I'm finally at a place where I'm not ashamed of my bad times. Now I'm trying to learn from them and help others if they need it.

Welcome back!! Thanks for the comment on my blog. I've learned that small attainable goals are easier than big goals. I have big ones for the entire year in my mind but I'm trying to focus on one day at a time.

Yep, I did get married! Thanks! You have been gone a long time. I've missed you.

How are you? What's new? Are you ready to get back on track? I know you can do it. You've done awesome before!

Have you been watching the new season of Doctor Who? What do you think of Peter Capaldi? I like him much more than Matt Smith.

Also, hi and how are ya!? :-) emoticon
