I've been overweight for too long!

My name is Lauren, I'm 22, and live in Dallas Texas. My mother-in-law showed me the site and I absolutely fell in love with it! I know SparkPeople will really help me loose the weight I've been needing to since I was 10 years old! I'm big and beautiful, but now it's time to be happy with myself and beautiful!

I'm ready to feel as beautiful outside as I do inside!!!

I just had my first baby so now it's very important for me to get to my goal weight because I don't want her to fall into the rut I put myself in!

i'll get more compliments
i'll feel better physically
i'll have more stamina
i'll have more energy
i'll feel more optimistic
i'll make a better impression on people
i'll be able to keep up with my daughter
i'll be less inhibited about my body
i'll enjoy physical intimacy more
i'll like myself better
i'll do more things in public specifically swimming

My sabotaging thoughts:
It's okay to eat this... I'll just work out extra hard tonight
If I weigh myself in the middle of the week and see I've lost more that the 2 pounds I can go a little crazy the rest of the week
It's just vegetables so I can eat as much as I want
I can do it later
I have so many calories left it's okay if I splurge

Changes in thinking:
I can't have a splurge day
fast food is okay just plan it in (don't eat it on the fly)
don't finish dinner than adding more calories
plan all my calories for the day
all the workouts matter
add oil and butter to plan
decide what to eat before going out

:::Updated July 24, 2010:::
I have wonderful news! Although I've lost an awesome 40 pounds it looks like we're expecting our second baby!!! Yup I'm pregnant again! I will still be doing my nutrition tracker on sparkpeople but I'm not going to try and loose weight for now! I'm going to have about 1500 calories and do my prenatal yoga Monday, Wednesday, and Friday!!! We're so excited!!!

Hi. I am in Waco, not Ft. Worth but I know there is a walking club in your area if you are interested in participating in local events on a regular basis. I do similar walks every weekend. We are not "fund raising" clubs, we are for fun, fitness and fellowship. Our clubs are family oriented and most events are baby stroller, and pet friendly. Our object is to keep a record book and collect a stamp for each event that we do. I've done over a 1000 of the 10K events in Texas and in 46 other states. Visit my blogs and see my recent adventures. Here is the information on our local club:

Club Name: Star Trekkers of Irving
Address: 217 Chamberlain
City: Irving
State: TX
Zip: 75060-5344
Contact: Gary Whitford
Phone: (214) 536-9756
Website: www.startrekkers.org

I hope you don't mind, but I added you as a friend. Seems we have some of the same issues. I like that you admit that God is a big part of this and I am of the same belief. Hope all is well with you. :)
