I Beleive I can Fly !

'You can't lose weight. You've never stuck with anything in your whole life.' Those words haunt me all the time-every time I slip and eat something I know I shouldn't. I hate it when people think I'm too weak to succeed in my diet. I hate it even more when I prove them right. Still, being ashamed of failing at my diet is often good for me. If I am ashamed enough, then it helps me stick with it the next time.

My name is LaRaine I'm 53years old and I'm from Kansas. I would have to say that most all the women in my family are or were heavy. I was always told to clean my plate even if I was full. I do not know if heredity is one of the causes of my weight problems or not but who am I kidding I was FAT cause I couldn't stop eating. After I was married, we decided I would stay at home and raise the family. I weighed 180 pounds then and by the time I had our third child I weighed 280. I hardly ever went out I would nibble on something all the time I could have eaten all day and emptied the fridge if I hadn’t held myself back some. Therefore, I started getting even larger the situation was catastrophic!!

*****UPDATE DUE TO FACTORS NOT OF MY CONTROL I HAD LAP BAND ON DECEMBER 7, 2012****

********************************

Everyone is always so positive and it seemed to me that whatever problem I've had someone else has, had it too and we could work out strategies for dealing with it together. Weighing in every week has been essential for me. I posted my weight every week, whether or not I've managed a loss. It has been great to be congratulated when I achieved one of my target goals and to be commiserated with when I hadn't done as well as I'd hoped.


Above all, challenge yourself. You may well surprise yourself at what strengths you have, what you can accomplish.

It’s been more than a year since you read my blog entry, “Beauty Comes in All Shapes and Sizes, Not Just Size 5”…I hope that the last year has brought you happiness and success in life. But above all, I hope that you have remembered how beautiful you are!

Just stopping by to see “How you doin'?” I am trying to do my best Rocky Balboa New York City - Northern New Jersey and the Philly - Southern New Jersey accent. So do I sound like him?

I hope you are having GREAT day!
