I did it once and I can do it again ! 130# off and kept off for 3 years. 80# back on now due to poor coping skills with stress. This time it stays off. I don't want to die young or be in pain until I die old. I want energy and I deserve to be happy, energetic, and fit ! I've always taken care of others, now I take care of myself. NO MORE GUILT !!! I have choices.

Update: I had actually gained 147 # from my laziness. I had been at 177# for 3 years and still felt fat and out of control, poor self esteem. October 2013 I started again because I was unwilling to totally give up on myself. I discovered I really do love myself and I am worth so much more than what I think food & laziness were giving me.

10/5/2015 Update: I have finally arrived to Onederland. 199.3# Now on to goal !

    Seriously? Lobster and Crisco? oh no! The yummy salad - Romaine and Kale, Feta Cheese, Pecans, Strawberries and Mandarin Oranges - I had balsamic vinegarette on the side. Oh - Ciabatta bread too. But it was SOOO good. Today we went out for breakfast after church and I had them switch out the home fries for grilled tomato - I used to do that in Jersey and never thought about it here - mainly because I DO love home fries, lol. But now potatoes are off the menu. It's a really nice side to the eggs. Waiter was like - ??? you want a tomato thrown on the grill? They did good. however, they sliced them instead of grilling a half. :O

    Thinking of having the rest of my brussel sprouts tonight- lots of fiber in them :) - was the lobster buffet??? I would certainly enjoy some tonight. - Silly me - i'd enjoy them any night. Did have a wonderful salad today at the beach - I'd like some more - but we came home. :( Have a great week
