In January of 2012, I finally got the courage to step on the scale and boy, was I mad when it told me 293 lbs! I decided it's time to wage a war against the obesity that's claimed my whole life - I want to make sure that my daughter knows that even though obesity runs in every generation of both sides of the family, you can fight it and WIN!!

Now I'm down 120 lbs and working towards the last 23 that I want to lose. I've had many great NSVs along the way, as well as some major ...

Now I'm down 120 lbs and working towards the last 23 that I want to lose. I've had many great NSVs along the way, as well as some major setbacks. I just keep reminding myself that every day is a new opportunity to do the right thing, and that "a year from now, I will wish I had started today" - I'm going to go get started right now for the ME I will be next year!!

Thanks for the encouragement SparkWorld!!

Thanks for commenting on my blog. I hope my job settles down soon too and my husband and I have decided to start trying for a family no matter what next year. I hope your job turns around as well! At least we have spark for support! I saw you are down 120 lbs- WOW!! Do you have any tips or tricks hat you think have really helped you along the way? I'd love to hear what eating/workout programs are working for you!

Thank you so much for your comment on my blog. I know that I am (and perhaps you are also) an eater who is triggered by various kinds of social or familial anxiety. It's important to understand that when we feel bad about a social scenario, it's a truly valid and legitimate feeling. I am trying to think of ways to respond to that feeling that do not involve turning to food.

THANK YOU! emoticon
