Because I'm worth it.

Highest weight: 230
Long term goal: 140

I did not become obese by accident. I preferred to sit comfortably rather than break a sweat. I preferred to eat pizza, lasagna, sweets, drink alcohol, drink soda, and eat until I was beyond full. I obsessed over chocolate and always got my money's worth at a buffet. This is a MINDSET of wanting to be comfortable, and wanting more more more of everything.

I did not become obese by accident. I preferred to sit comfortably rather than break a sweat. I preferred to eat pizza, lasagna, sweets, drink alcohol, drink soda, and eat until I was beyond full. I obsessed over chocolate and always got my money's worth at a buffet. This is a MINDSET of wanting to be comfortable, and wanting more more more of everything. I've packed on the pounds with years of this, and did not have the skills, mindset or serious desire to live life any other way.

I've embarked on a journey to lose weight and get healthy and have made MANY mistakes. I've slipped and given up on myself, searched for a new diet, and then tried again. I've tried various workout routines, joined a gym, bought workout dvd's and committed to various programs before giving up. I've finally realized that it's ME I need to conquer.

I'm learning to ride through emotions and daily frustrations with new coping skills. I'm learning to eat with nutrition in mind, and stop when I've had the right portion and not until I feel full. I'm learning to get rid of trigger foods instead of kicking myself that I can't seem to master moderation.

I've also had to figure out what to do about my tendency to give up easily. I've faced feeling discouraged and sick of the whole thing. I've faced doing everything right and still not losing weight for a while. It hasn't been easy and I still experience those feelings. I am finally aware that accomplishing this goal is going to take time and effort, but it's worth doing.

It's not going to be a bunch of candy canes and rainbows. I'm not always going to feel inspired, excited, motivated.

However...
I need to do this because, as I'm finally realizing, I'm worth it.

My Goals:
1. Sobriety. Quit alcohol on June 8, 2010. Still sober today!!

2. To stay committed to my food plan and break the cycle of giving up on it and myself.

3. To stay committed to getting that healthy exercise my body craves and deserves, and building up my fitness level.

4. To finally get below that horrible number (200)!!!


My Program:
Eating way more vegetables than I thought I needed before.

Avoiding sugar and fake sugars in all foods. (fake sugars give me gas something fierce!)

Avoiding addictive foods (for me) like peanut butter. If you tell me to eat it in moderation, or in some organic form, I will politely thank you and move on.

Exercising according to my plan and building up my fitness level gradually.



Personal Information:
I am a student and intern as a sign language interpreter.

Have no kids but dogs that I adore like children.
