Me at 150. What I want to get back to!
I have 50 pics in my gallery
Underneath It All
When I was 33 I was the happiest I've ever been, (with my weight). I've always had some weight to lose, but had never completely reached the goals I'd set for myself. Then what started out as a stressful time winded up yielding a 30lb. weight loss which became easy for me to maintain (now that I was active and actually getting out of the house) until I became pregnant and had my son. I went from 146 before pregnancy to 190 after, then went back down again in 9 months to 155, then went through ...
When I was 33 I was the happiest I've ever been, (with my weight). I've always had some weight to lose, but had never completely reached the goals I'd set for myself. Then what started out as a stressful time winded up yielding a 30lb. weight loss which became easy for me to maintain (now that I was active and actually getting out of the house) until I became pregnant and had my son. I went from 146 before pregnancy to 190 after, then went back down again in 9 months to 155, then went through another negative "change of life" circumstance and this time ballooned to 215 in a time span of about 6 months. For the first time I was seeing these numbers without the "excuse" of being at the end of a pregnancy, and could not get a handle on it. The depression from this (mainly) allowed me to pack on another 10lbs, and that is where I've stayed until just recently. Since Nov. of last year I've gone from 225 to 197, and I'm ready to drop the rest! I am TIRED of the cycle, I KNOW what the freedom of being at your goal weight feels like, and I want it back! Time to STOP THE MADNESS and conquer this- once and for all. I'm tired of constantly saying, "This is not me," when in the meantime, you know what? This is the only "me" anyone sees, and after a while it gets kinda ridiculous still holding on to that, cause others will continually remind you- whether consciously or not- what the "real you" looks like! So this is my story summed up. Ready for the outside to match the inside, and also to stop putting my body through these radical and dangerous changes!

My goal right now is to lose 8-10 lbs. a month, which would bring me to my ultimate goal (for the time being) of 140 again. The biggest challenge for me right now is regaining my CONSISTENCY and motivation. I have fallen so far off track and right back into the land of "starting over again" that it's so so hard to get going once more. I need to reconnect with the inner discipline and motivation and KEEP IT. I've lost a lot of weight a few times before, and each time my success happened through my CONSISTENCY. With this simple rule applied, I will once again be small:) Like Nike says, "Just do it!!!"
Also- and how could I forget this- TO STOP GAINING BACK WHAT I'VE LOST!!! THIS IS MY BIGGEST PROBLEM!!! I HAVE PROBABLY LOST WHAT I'M TRYING TO LOSE A FEW TIMES OVER THIS PAST YEAR !!! NO MORE HARD WORK FOR NOTHING!!!:o

I'm 5'3"- WAY too short for what I'm carrying around!!!
Being on SP for a year with virtually no progress has given me a HUGE attitude adjustment. I am done with my all-or-nothing thinking and have changed my focus and priorities on how long reaching my goal is going to take- to committing to making consistent changes and progress. I will no longer be "unsatisfied" with 'only' losing a pound or two each week. They sure matter and manage to add up when they're coming on- so they're going to matter and definately add up when they're coming off!!!
