This photo is 18 years old. I was 140 lbs and thought I was fat! While I will never again be that wrinkle free, I can be that strong and healthy again. And I promise if I get back down to 140 (or anything under 155) to never think of myself as fat again!!!
This was me about 7 years ago at 165 lbs. I could happily live at this size. I really think I'm through with the drama in my life that led me to get and stay fat. I'm ready to be healthy and live life more fully.
I'm a 41 year old single mom. I want to get back into shape. I like who I am on the inside- it's time to work on the outside.
I would like to find a buddy to go hiking with. I'm in Healdsburg, CA and I'm free on T,TH,Sat and part of Fri. Warning: I'm not in shape, so we'd have to start off slowly.
I want to stop seeing a stranger everytime I look in the mirror- my outside image does not match my inside image of myself. I want to be able to wear whatever I feel like wearing not the thing the fits or is the least unflattering. I want to go hiking without so much panting.
On Jan 12th of this year I was at my highest weight- 225.8 lbs. I am now down to 203.8 lbs. I want to get down to 140-155, but would be okay if I never get past 165. I can't wait to get past 180 cuz that's when my double chin should vanish.
I'm from and currently living in Healdsburg, CA but I misspent 15 years of my life in Odessa, TX somewhere in between.
Myself by Edgar Guest
I have to live with myself, and so,
I want to be fit for myself to know;
I want to be able as days go by,
Always to look myself straight in the eye...
I never can hide myself from me,
I see what others may never see,
I know what others may never know,
I never can fool myself- and so,
Whatever happens, I want to be
Self-respecting and conscience free.

Hi!! I wanted to stop by and check in with you...I see you are fighting the same pound...no worries, it will go!! You have done so well so far, you can do this too!
I just got back from my vacation to Oregon and I didn't gain, so I'm happy about that, but I'm not loosing either! I think I'm going to cut out sugar and chocolate for a month and see what happens. No treats for me!!
Hope you have a great week!!
