I look forward to one day being able to wear a two piece bathing suit.

A new beginning is what this is for me, a second chance to get it right. And this time there is no turning back. I have been overweight all my life, and I am just tired of not living my life to the fullest. So this is a new beginning, a new attitude, a new me. ...
March 5th 2012
Jan 2nd 2012 I found myself at 270lbs again, and again I set a new years resolution to drop the pounds. Usually I would sit around and have a pitty party by myself, but one thing that I have learned from SP is that it is okay to have set backs, but don't give up. So it is March 5th and I am still going strong I am down 17lbs. I must admit I am not the poster child on how to eat, but i have made some changes that I feel have helped me with my weight loss, such as:
-WATER WATER WATER
-NO SODA (I don't even miss it!)
-NO FAST FOOD (I.E. Mc Donalds, Burger King, Wendy's, Taco Bell. I occasionally go out to a local restaurant.)
-NO CEREAL LOADED WITH SUGAR (Frosted Flakes, which was my weakness)
-NO WHITE BREAD
Even though I have gained some healthy eating habits I have to be honest I still struggle everyday. There are some times when I know I shouldn't have a big bowl of pasta, but sometimes those old habits get the best of me. But I am so proud of the small accomplishments I have made.

On 2/2/2012 I started a weight lost challege at work. Over a 10 week period who ever drops the most weight (based on percentages) wins $500. I am all for winning money and dropping the pounds. Whatever works. Wish me luck.

Need I say anymore??? Don't worry/stress b/c frustration is part of this process, it's normal to have good/ok/and bad days. Yesterday I ate over my suggested calorie range...I was disappointed until my "AHA" moment came. This is a lifestyle, a way of life, not a diet. I have not seriously deprived myself of any foods, I just try and eat w/in range. Yesterday I ate a 100 calorie ice cream sandwhich, two pieces of candy, chicken wingettes w/salad for lunch, sweet potato mash with dinner (so tasty). And my greed (2 ice cream sandwhiches, bread w/dinner) and some other stuff is what took me over my calories. Otherwise I would have been ok. I'm almost positive this won't be the last time I eat more calories than I'm supposed to. Get creative with your cooking then you will never feel deprived. My sister and a I use skinnytaste.com for low cal, tasty recipes. There are weight watcher points and calories that come with the recipes.
Last week I was gloating to my husband about losing 1lb and he arted laughing and I had to explain to his 170lb self that 1lb is a reat defeat for me, one that I will take every week if that's what it takes to get me where I need to be. The lbs add up. If you lose 1lb a week think about how you will look and feel this same time next year *take a moment to think*
