Apparently, I've had some sort of epiphany :)

I'm a graduate student, studying Arts & Technology.

I feel like I've finally figured something out. This time, I've completely changed my relationship with food, and at 29, I'm mature enough now to have realistic expectations.

I've been around. I've been a yo-yo dieter. I feel now that I have transcended my old yo-yo pattern, and replaced it with a healthy eating pattern I can stick with for the rest of my life. Of course, there's still goals to reach, but I'm 100% ...

I've been around. I've been a yo-yo dieter. I feel now that I have transcended my old yo-yo pattern, and replaced it with a healthy eating pattern I can stick with for the rest of my life. Of course, there's still goals to reach, but I'm 100% sure I can reach them. "I feel good about this," is an understatement. So instead, I'll say "I've got this."

Wanna take what I have learned and share it with the world! While I'm finishing my degree, I'm also taking a "Healthy Lifestyle and Weight Management Specialist" course and getting certified. Plan on combining what I know about healthy lifestyles with my artistic skills and doing something with that (I've got plans).

Yes, apparently, I've had some sort of epiphany :)

Thanks for the comment! Good call with the sticking with it for x amount of days. I really agree with the control comment. Maybe that's what's so frustrating about all this - we can control how many calories we eat and how much we exercise but not what the scale says. Congrats on the move!

Congrats on moving. I would rather spend my money on homegoods instead of clothes any day. I tell Eric all the time that when we get a house, we live in an apartment now, I'm going to go insane buying things for it! LOL. You know I never have thought about keeping my old clothes in case I gain my weight back. I just seems like a waste for clothes to stay packed up for years whether they're your skinny clothes or your fat clothes. I guarantee you that there are so many people out there hat need them! That's a really good idea about gaining weight back! And you better believe if my pants start getting too tight I will be checking what I'm doing and fixing it! Thanks for the blog comment!!

Love the colour and cut of your hair. I used dye my hair black with funky highlights but now that I'm a mom with a job in the public eye I keep choosing 'natural djavascript:%20void(0);ark brown' =/ I'm getting boring. Good luck with your weight loss!
