Losing weight is hard. Period. There is no easy way around it. Trust me, Ive tried. My favourite method is the I-Pray-When-I-Go-To-Sleep to- Wakeup-Skinny AND surprise! It doesn't happen.

I'm a 4th year Psychology student with a focus in Health Psychology. When I grow up what I want to be is a doctor(the MD kind) however in reality what I will probably be is a PhD which is a fairly lofty goal. School is my focus.

In 2007 I started my weight loss journey at 309lbs, within the first 6 months I had lost 100lbs and then my excuse happened, I broke my foot while running. I'm not going to lie I had lofty intentions of continuing to exercise while it mended - my orthopedic surgeon had approved stationary biking but that wasn't enough, I was depressed, I felt like a failure, I wallowed in my weight gain before I had even gained any weight. Exercise for me is a huge part of how I lose weight and I felt like biking just wasn't going to be enough and on top of that I had to wear this hideous cast on my leg and who wasn't going to notice that? In short I let my hurdle become my failure. and since then I have gained 50lbs.

In 2008, I met my boyfriend and we have been together 2 years, he would like to see me get healthy, I would like to see me get skinny. I hate being the fat girl. I hate what I have let myself become again and I don't want to end up back at 309lbs. I'm DONE being the fat girl.

For me I think what it comes down to is focusing on what I want and the end result. It's reinforcing that I am worth this, That I am beautiful and smart and a good person. It's telling myself those things until I'm blue in the face, and it's self forgiveness. It's realizing that I'm not perfect and that messing up is okay but just don't make it a habit.

Just to share my mantra with you:

This is a Healthy lifestyle choice.
I Love myself.
I Respect my process.
I Love my body
I have Control of my decisions and my body.
I am not afraid.
I am worthy of Love
I accept my Mistakes and I push through them.
I am Capable.
I am Strong.

    Thanks for adding me as a friend. I picked you out a while back based on a blog and some things you wrote on message boards, but I doubt I let you know that in any way. I'm very knew and still learning how to do things. Have a good night.

    Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"

    I really like the Zumba game. I can't dance but its something fun and I work up a sweat doing it. The biggest loser is confusing to start but it actually gets difficult.

    Last night was my first night back at yoga in YEARS. I had been really into yoga for about 2 years previously, but somehow got away from it.. so last night was great! I think I'm hooked again.
