About time I updated this thing!

I lost 21 pounds. I am a size 8 again and I weigh 144 pounds. I was 165 pounds at my highest weight ever in my entire life. I was miserable, constantly fatigued, suffered headaches all the time, felt "fat" and bloated constantly and hated myself. I can say I feel a hell of a lot better about myself now. I can look in the mirror and truly believe it when I say "damn, bitch you look good." Because I do. I am not stick thin, I am not a body builder. I ...
About time I updated this thing!

I lost 21 pounds. I am a size 8 again and I weigh 144 pounds. I was 165 pounds at my highest weight ever in my entire life. I was miserable, constantly fatigued, suffered headaches all the time, felt "fat" and bloated constantly and hated myself. I can say I feel a hell of a lot better about myself now. I can look in the mirror and truly believe it when I say "damn, bitch you look good." Because I do. I am not stick thin, I am not a body builder. I am Kim Version 2.0.

I think I gained all that weight because of stress. I went to eating a horrible diet when I got a desk job that kept me confined there for 8-10 hours a day. I stopped working out and was eating a typical (typical=crappy) American diet, including meat and dairy!!!!!! Cannot believe I was doing that. In March 2011 I decided that I was tired of being fat, so I started going back to the gym. That was a big step. But I wasn't losing weight because I was still eating whatever the hell I wanted. In February 2010, I eliminated the meat again (except for fish, but limited servings per week), and earlier this year I eliminated most dairy. I discovered that I am lactose intolerant. My husband kept telling me that I was, but I continued to deny my horrible gas was coming from eating yogurt and cheese sticks lol.

Another life-changing thing that happened to me was reading The China Study. Diet is the single most important factor impacting our health as Americans. If you hate reading, please watch Forks Over Knives. It could save your life. A plant-based diet is the key to a life free of disease and full of longevity. Eat Plants and Be Happy.

My Goals:
Get back to the way I was back in 2008. A lot of good things (and not so good things) have happened to me and I 1000% lost sight of what it is to look good and feel good about myself at the same time. My job requires me to sit on my ass 8+ hours a day and I guess I didn't realize that eating the same as I did when I worked retail wasn't going to work! I am now focusing on reaching my healthy weight goal and KEEPING MYSELF THERE. NO MORE FLUCTUATION.

My Program:
1200-1300 cals a day, less sodium, less refined sugar, plenty of water, and gym 4 days a week 30 min cardio 20 min strength training alternating days focusing on upper body and core.

Personal Information:
I am from Alabama, but I relocated to sunny central Florida in the summer of 2006. My husband and I live in Tampa with our wonderful chubby kitty Grace.

Other Information:
