Well, I am about 5 lbs from my goal and recently found out that I'm not big boned after all. I think back when I was over 200 lbs, I thought I just needed to get to about 165 and that would be all I could do because I was 'big boned.' Then when I got to 165, I talked to a personal trainer at the gym, and he told me the lowest weight I could ever hope for would be 155. But, here I am at 140 realizing that I actually have a medium frame! Maybe even a small frame!!

I am done being the fat girl. I have tried ever diet, like most overweight people have. I was blessed to find SparkPeople. It has really taught me life changes. There is great support here. I track my foods EVERYDAY. This keeps me accountable. I log in every day during the week and read at least a few minutes and check in with my spark buddies. This keeps me focused. I really believe with every part of me that this will be the time I finally get to my goal weight.

Here are some of my favorite quotes:

Every success is built on the ability to do better than good enough.

"Im not telling you it is going to be easy- I'm telling you its going to be worth it." -Art Williams

"Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending." -Carl Bard

"You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it" -Margaret Thatcher

"Discipline is remembering what you want." 'David Campbell

"Rather than aiming for being perfect, just aim to be a little better than you were yesterday."

"A year from now, you may wish you had started today." -Robert Schuller

"If we wait for the moment when everything, absolutely everything is ready, we shall never begin." -Ivan Turgenev

"All things are difficult before they are easy." John Morley

"Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength."

"Sooner or later, you start taking yourself seriously. You knwo when you need a break. You know when you need a rest. You know what to get worked up about and what to get rid of. And you know when it's time to take care of yourself, for yourself. To do something that makes you stronger, faster, more complete. Because you know it's never too late to have a life. And never too late to change one."

"I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life's greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve. This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator seperating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret."

Member Since: 10/12/2009

Fitness Minutes: 19,677

My Goals:
I hit my original goal of wanting to get to 150 on 6/14/10. I am changing my goal to get down to 135.

I am going to start the Insanity program on 6/21 which last 60 days.


My Program:
I am eating between 1,200 and 1,550 calories a day. I workout at lunch for about 40 minutes. I love circuit training! I try to run a couple days a week and always try to keep my body guessing.



Personal Information:
My name is Tifanie and I am from Texas. I live in Rowlett which is right outside of Dallas. I got married in January of 2009 and we had a little girl in August 2009. We also have 2 boys and another girl from his previous marriage. So in one year I went straight to a family of 6! :-)


Other Information:
I have lost weight before, my heighest weight being 265. I got down to 165, so i've already lost 100 lbs before by exercising and working out. I put back on some of that weight and then got pregnant. So now I am trying to take off the baby weight, and continue on my weight loss journey. Then onto the wonderful world of maintainance.

    You are still here! Thank you for commenting on my blog. I feel like the only way I can do this again is to find great support like I had last time. I still find the format on here a bit clunky but I feel loyal to SP for helping me the first time, so I am sticking to it. How are you? Where are you at in life an love and so forth these days?
