If it is to be, it is up to me!

I have always been the chubby sister and fat friend growing up. I started feeling self conscious about myself in grade school and I adapted the nasty habit of eating to hide my feels.

I was 230 at my heaviest two years ago and on my wedding day (19 years ago) I was 165. I want to be at a healthy weight for my 20th anniversary 2011.
My 15 year old son is my biggest inspiration. He has lost 40+ pounds since Jan 2010 by setting goals and exercising daily. He encourages me to get active and to really watch what I put in to my mouth. Then there is my wonderful husband who has lost 77 pounds and is maintaining his healthy weight and life style. We have been walking 3-4 evenings together and he is a great motivator.

“In terms of days and moments lived, you’ll never again be as young as you are right now, so spend this day, the youth of your future, in a way that deflects regret. Invest in yourself. Have some fun. Do something important. Love somebody extra. In one sense, you’re just a kid, but a kid with enough years on her to know that every day is priceless."
-Victoria Moran

“Everything that happens to you is a reflection of what you believe about yourself. We cannot outperform our level of self-esteem. We cannot draw to ourselves more than we think we are worth.”

"I believe that we are who we choose to be.
Nobody's going to come and save you. You've got to save yourself.
Nobody's going to give you anything. You've got to go out and fight for it.
Nobody knows what you want except for you.
And nobody will be as sorry as you if you don't get it.
So don't give up on your dreams."
-Unknown

Hugs,
Pixie
