2006 was not my heaviest, I think I began my weight loss journey in May 2010

You spend so much time circling around for the quickest/shortest route that you eventually realize if you'd have just parked in the back and taken the long way, you'd be done and in the store by now.
I'm Amber, I'm 31 years old, female, married, one baby boy. I've been overweight ALL my life, and I've just decided that I give up. I give up obsessing about what's going into my body. I've noticed that I've started obsessing over putting fruits in my mouth! I freak out that I ate a cup of strawberries...hello??! They're healthy! So, I'm just going to make the right decisions at the right time, and if it works, great, if not, well...it 's better than stuffing myself w/ chips, candy, and all that other crap all the time. I WILL have setbacks. No one is perfect. There are WAY too many temptations to think about what you CAN'T have! Enjoy a little, a little bit of the time, but then get right back on track.
My goal is to just lose the weight for me, it's time!
I'm following the Insulin Resistance diet as directed by my dr. It's basically 1 gram of protein for every 2 grams of carbs. I work out and do cardio at least 4 days a week on my gazelle. I LOVE THAT THING!
I'm from Indiana, much of my weight has been a result of an abusive family situation. But, I now have a wonderful husband who loves and supports me so much that I really feel like I can do anything!
My hubby and I just bought a brand new house in May 08, and had a baby boy in May 09.
