Well, Hello!

My story thus far... I was very active in my youth, played sports, was concerned about my weight in the way most silly high school girls are, but was actually pretty slim, just curvy. As the time old tale goes, I gained weight in college. Still not horrible, just a little more plump. I had been in retail all of my working years...the kind that keeps you running around all day.

Well, Hello!

My story thus far... I was very active in my youth, played sports, was concerned about my weight in the way most silly high school girls are, but was actually pretty slim, just curvy. As the time old tale goes, I gained weight in college. Still not horrible, just a little more plump. I had been in retail all of my working years...the kind that keeps you running around all day. I bounced around from 120-140 for several years until I took my most recent position as a customer service rep at a healthcare facility. I sit at a desk pretty much all day. I packed on the pounds and at my heaviest was 180. The day I was closer to 200 than 100 was my breaking point. I've used other programs, but have not had as much success or support as I have found on Spark.

I'm interested in all sorts of movies, books, art, travel, blah, blah, blah.
I went to school for fashion merchandising/design. I want to get back into that line of work. I need something more creative than what I'm doing currently. Also, something that does not keep me dealing directly with public. I've just about had my fill, haha. I live in a rural area, so changing jobs, let alone trying to start a career, is a challenge.

Glad you stopped by and I hope we can encourage each other on this crazy ride!

I will take a new boat. I kind of feel like we only have on oar in the water so we keep going in circles, but I swear I am rowing both with all my might. Literally. Sigh.

One thing I know for certain is if I quit, I will feel worse. Maybe my weight won't change, but I know mentally I will feel worse. Physically I will feel worse from being a lazy bum. I just wish my benefits and positives of working out and eating right were far more visible rather than mental (?). But doesn't it just take me through the wringer emotionally already? Bah!

Thank you for your rant :) Although I'm not happy you're in the boat with me, I do so enjoy knowing I'm not the only one. I wish we all would/could succeed.

I don't understand why my body is not responding. I don't think I can have a five-year plateau. I've switched up things repeatedly. I change what I eat, how I eat, how much I eat, what my eating plan is, more of this, less of that, etc. and nothing changes. I've done an hour of HIIT-workouts, INSANITY, weight-lifting only, and now cardio and weight-lifting. I have been stuck at this stupid weight for too long. Why won't it go down?

The last time it went down was when I was eating half of what was in front of me and I was incredibly unhappy with my life. And when I say eating half, I mean eating half of my carrot serving. Eating half of my salad. Not like, oh, no, half a burger. OH MY GOSH, I'd kill for a burger... that sounds so good... Anyway, I started eating normally again and oo, gained my 10lbs back. Awesome. Or not.

That is part of why I'm scared to raise my calories. I lost weight by not eating as much. But I always viewed that period as Bad Not Eating, as in, I was so unhappy I was sick to my stomach. But I lost weight! But I can't imagine eating half of what I eat now! I would probably tear every single person's head off!

Wow, this is turning into another blog. Whoops!

Thanks for the good hula vibes. I felt them, needed them, and appreciated them :) Thank you! emoticon

Heheheh! Other good ones along with Calm Yo Tits:

soothe your boobs
de-stress your breasts
undo the calamity that is your mammaries
adjust your bust before it combusts
give that chest a rest
hakuna your tatas
donít have a rack attack

Also, fantastic statue. I shall see to having one commission and placed in my backyard immediately.
