Let's give this a whirl ! Basically I've had an epiphany (love that word!!!), or my "ah-ha moment" as some people like to call it. I can't pin point it to one moment, on one day but I know it has happened and it's time for a change.
On February 23rd, 2009 I slipped in the parking lot at work, resulting in a torn mensicus. Since this injury happened at work, it was covered by workers comp...finally on July 23rd,2009 I had arthroscopic knee surgery to remove/repair the damage. In those 5 months between slipping and having surgery, I had a lot of time on my hands and not a whole bunch of safe, or comfortable mobility. In fear of blowing up while I was home I began watching HOW MUCH I was eating for starters, then WHAT I was eating, and trying to make better choices. Post-surgery I began and physical therapy for my knee and noticed the diference in strength in my leg...and I felt good about myself. I felt stronger and like things are do-able and that I could manage this routine of PT exercises at home. I also enjoy working out on the yoga ball which has given me visable results which motivates me even more.
I know this is my time. I need to start making better choices and taking care of myself. As a toddler teacher, I don't do that enough; taking care of myself. I enjoy taking care of others and seeing them happy, but now it's my turn. I owe it to myself, and the people around me to be the best me I can be. I'm not striving to be a little barbie doll...but just to be healthier and every little....or big pound, I guess, helps. I'm heading back to work full time on September 28th,2009 and I'm nervous where it will take me as far as my food intake/logging. I've had all this time alone at home to talk myself through it and make logical choices but now I will be back in a hectic environment and just hope I can keep my goals in focus. It's gonna be a hard ride but it's gonna be a worth it.

My Goals:
Just trying to break past that 210 lb mark and then some. That seems to be my 'wall' constantly. I've had a lot of time on my hands lately and haven't had the physical capabilities to reach my goals, but now I do. No more excuses!


My Program:



Personal Information:
I'm Laura from Central Massachusetts. I enjoy photography, reading (especially Stephen King),watching horror movies, teaching
(Toddlers) ; as well as learning, just all around improving myself as a person. As said above, I've had plenty of time on my hands lately. I've had time to stop, breathe, and really look at myself and figure out what I need/want. I've always been plus size, even as a kid I was chubby...I'm not striving to be a size 2...but what I am stiving for are positive changes in my life because I deserve them and the people around me deserve to have me at my best. I'd love to say goodbye to a weight that begins with a 2...but still be full figured ...just healthier.
