I've been at this point a handful of times... at the peak weight of my life and enthusiastic about making a change. This is not news to anyone.

What IS different is this year I've discovered a lot about what's fueling my desire to consume food endlessly. Over the last ten years, the perpetual weight gain/loss cycle used to be a mystery to me, and for some reason I took comfort in its familiarity. It was a pattern that always emerged, whether I was conscious of it or not. Now I feel like I've seen the man behind the curtain, and I'm not impressed that he's been keeping me from many things I want to experience.

Here's to punching that guy in the face, because I know how he works, I know what he wants, and our wants and needs no longer overlap. I'm an adult who makes adult decisions to accomplish adult goals, so it stops today.

My Goals:
Hitting the 190's again is my initial weight goal. My life/participation goals include: playing tennis with my boyfriend without feeling like I'm going to keel over, being confident when working with clients, fitting into a dress that's a single-digit size.

"Obstacles are what you see when you take your eyes off the goal."

"Do we ever see a magazine have "I biked 22 miles" or "I exercised 5 days last week"? No. We only see "I lost 50 pounds" but when if fact, it's those healthy habits that people acquired that helped them get the weight off."

"Your weight today is not a a direct result of what you did yesterday."

"Goals that are not written down are just wishes." - Unknown
