This is me at my heaviest, I weighed about 185 lbs, I am the distracted yellow blob on the right.
This is me on the right towards the end of high school, my weight had by then dropped to 145.
This is me after a few months in college, and about 20 lbs above my high school weight at 167 lbs.

I can do this. I have done it before. I am losing weight, and I am eating better. I am obsessive about my running, I have a pretty strict schedule. I am even pretty good about eating for most of the day. Then the evening comes along and I eat a large dinner and snack and get bored... I am trying to change all of this. I am trying to be more mindful of strength training with yoga. I am trying to be more mindful of my eating choices and whether I am hungry or just bored. I am trying to be more active in the evenings so that I don't get bored. I am trying to be more active on Spark again, because that was my main tool for success before. I am going to do this.
I want to be healthy. If I am healthy at 125, then I'll stop there. If I still need some toning after losing that much, I will adjust my goal weight. If I don't get to 125, but I am in the best shape I could be in, I will be happy.
running, walking with the dog, some yoga, and strength exercises

Obviously I am a sick, sick puppy, but this is the funniest thing I've read in a long time. I had a huge out loud laugh at work...luckily I was working through lunch so no one cared.

How's it going? :)
Just read your blog about the binge of 3,000 calories. Guuuuurl, I hear ya. I still do this from time to time, and then shake my head wondering what possessed me to do such a thing.
Forgive me for barging in, and for saying somehting that's not been asked of me to say... But... Do you think that you are perhaps a bit too hard on yourself, weight-wise? I read some more entries where you weighed yourself and then almost seemed to *punish* yourself for gaining a couple of pounds.
It happens from time to time, and we will not always weigh one exact number. Some days I can vary 3 - 4 pounds. And that's just ONE DAY!
Anyway, I know you didn't ask me to provide my opinion, but I just wanted to encourage you to be gentle with yourslef and see what amazing progress you've made. You are fabulous. AS YOU ARE. Don't forget that. :)
