Time for a Change... Changing myself

I am a Midwestern gal trying to lose weight for good. I have tried to lose weight in the past. This time for good! I have two children and would like to teach them healthy habits too!

I had lap band surgery on August 10, 2009 and it has changed my life!

Losing weight in 10% increments:
First 10% - 25 pounds lost as of September 28th

35 pounds lost as of 11/12/09

I lost my next 10% which would have put me at 207 and I accomplished that ...

35 pounds lost as of 11/12/09

I lost my next 10% which would have put me at 207 and I accomplished that last week 1/15/10 (it went by and I didn't realize it!) So I have lost 10% twice!!!

Next 10% (3rd time) would be 186 which would be 19 lbs away! I should make that by the end of March 2010. Took me a little longer but lost another 10% beginning of May 2010.

My next 10% (4th time) will be 168... hmm not sure when I will make that!! But the scale keeps going down and I keep learning things about myself every day!! Reached this 9/13/10!

Next 10% (5th time) will be 151 lbs... keep working on this!
I reached this goal!! Woo hoo!

My ULTIMATE GOAL is to weigh 136 - that would be "normal" on the bmi scale for my height - yes I am a shortie! Only 5' 2" if I am lucky! That is until I start shrinking. 6th time to 10% would be 136 - my GOAL WEIGHT!

I did my first triathalon on September 11th, 2010. It was amazing! Have done so many things that I have never imagined doing!!

I kinda lost my desire to do 5Ks, triathalons, etc. at the beginning of 2011 I wanted to do a half marathon but haven't trained for one so that may have to wait until next year (or if ever lol).

I have offered up my encouragement to my fellow lap banders and in my support group but nobody has taken me up on it :(

Loved what you wrote about goals on my page and couldn't agree more. We may never accomplish our "goals" but the key is to accomplish our potential. I'm not there yet...I know I still have a lot more potential. I think you are there!!

Thanks!! I'm up a bit, but working on it. Still have a lot to lose before I get to my goal, but got nothing but time, right? You are an inspiration - so proud of all you have accomplished. I love seeing your posts on Facebook. I'm a cat lover too!
