I have felt bad about my weight for my whole life. Looking back on high school photos makes me so sad for that girl, because she was so not fat.

A couple years ago I managed to lose 20 pounds from my 211 high and have kept it off for 2 years. However, 185ish on a 5'2" frame is still WAAAAY too much weight.

I have no specific goals because no matter what goals I set, i never seem to achieve them. Plus, setting goals makes me feel more like i'm "on a diet" and not just changing my life. I've tried diets and programs and whatnot for too long. I know that would never work.

My Goals:
~ I want to enjoy my world.
~ I want to get in and out of my car without feeling like I need a shoehorn or an oxygen tank.
~I want to believe that a man could look twice at me because I look good and not because I'm such a disgusting cow.

My Program:
I am creating my own program using knowledge from the Curves diet, Bethenny Frankel's Naturally Thin book, and too much trial and error.

I have a bowl of multi grain cheerios every morning and a protein shake for lunch so I can walk at the gym. Evenings and sweets are my weakness. Sometimes I can figure a reasonably healthy supper, but I end up hungry again and get something to tide me through. I need enough structure to know what to eat when but enough variety to not get bored so fast as I usually do.

For exercise I am admitting defeat in DVDs. I hate them. I just plain hate them . I can do a 20 minute video on my roku if necessary, but I prefer movement. I've walked 25 minutes every work day at lunch for months. Since spring has sprung in Wisconsin I may start walking in the early morning to add to it. I'm also hoping to add a bit of biking and some strength training.

Personal Information:
~30-something ~Single
~Got fat little by little over a very long period of time
~Realized awhile ago that I've ALWAYS thought I was fat. See my photo album for proof. I was 115 in high school and wanted to lose my belly. What I wouldn't give to have that belly now!!!
