I am SO SICK of my life-long weight rollercoaster, folks! This time I'm doing this for GOOD. Every pound lost is forever barred from my body. I WILL BE A SEXY PIN-UP GIRL AGAIN!!!! I am a Done Girl and proud of it!

-The Weight Timeline-

-As a toddler, I became a very picky eater. My mom was paranoid and literally scared I would starve to death, so she let me eat whatever I wanted, which was pure junk. I jumped up six clothing sizes in the summer of 1988, when I turned 4 years old.

-Between May and October 1998, I lost 50 pounds with the Richard SImmons Deal-a-Meal system, and kept it off for 5 years. I was skinny for the first time in my entire life, but I didn't see myself as healthy and vibrant. I saw myself as a whale, and I continued to have poor body image.

-Between mid-2003 and May 2004 I gained all the weight back due to severe depression. So I started doing cardio, eating healthier and tracking my carbs, and after a year-long plateau, I finally dropped back down to 140 pounds.

-Gained 20 pounds between 2007 and 2008, lost 10 pounds, then gained 50 more until I officially weighed in at 210 on August 28, 2009. Lost some weight but wasn't super-serious about it.

-July 7, 2010 - Joined SparkPeople. I dove headfirst into it and did cardio three-four days a week and counted calories instead of carbs. Every month, more inches dropped from my body and I dropped two jeans sizes.

-December 17, 2010 - Completely fell off the wagon when I officially immigrated to Canada. I was so overjoyed to be back with my husband and everything I loved that I just... forgot about trying to be healthy.

-May through September 2011 - Got my Spark back and did Weight Watchers for a while, then switched to a lower carb diet and lots of exercising including Jillian Michaels DVDs. Lost some weight and 5 1/2 inches total.

-Rest of 2011 and into 2012 - Completely lost motivation, got on antidepressants, and gained a gazillion pounds.

-August 2012 - Got more serious than I've ever been in my life after being depressed over seeing awful photos of myself. I kicked my arse into gear, bought healthier food, started tracking my carbs again, and began exercising.

- October 2012 - December 2013 - Fell off the wagon again and was half-hearted with eating right and exercising. Back on the wagon now!

After that, who knows? It all depends on where I stand with this fat and flab hanging off my poor organs and bones. I could still be a ways away from my goal, or I could be almost there. Whatever the case, I will continue to eat healthy and exercise for the rest of my life. I will NEVER allow myself to get fat again. This is ridiculous! I have spent most of my life being fat and unhealthy, and I'm so sick of it. Never again.

Thanks for commenting on my blog yesterday. That's crazy that a nurse told you that diet pills were your only hope! That just proves that we have to be first in charge when it comes to our health.

Have a great week!

Insanity is SO much fun. it's not REALLY hard unless you have the wrong attitude towards it. Shaun T makes it a point to tell you to do YOUR best and never comprise form for speed, he tells you it's okay to take breaks and even tells his back up workout people to take breaks from time to time as well. I wouldn't say anyone could do it, but if you know your limits and aren't trying to impress your bedroom walls, it's so easy and the challenge of it makes you want to keep coming back for more. That being said, it doesn't get easier, it stays just as hard because you're constantly improving and doing more reps in the time he gives for each, there's very few actually counted rep sessions and the ones that are counted are usually different types of drills (8 push ups then sprinting in place) or are meant to be done slower (16 slow squats)

I personally didn't care for p90x, I found Tony Horton really unmotivating to the point where I was bored during the workout. Shaun T is super motivating but not in an in your face screaming at you type of way. Which is awesome!

However, I hope you're enjoying p90x, I know lots of people who have done it and loved it, and have had AMAZING results! I hope to see you on the Insanity train soon! :)
