I'm NEVER going back to where I was!

I started out on Spark in August of 2011 at 337 pounds. Over the course of the next year I lost over 100 pounds and have been in maintenance for over a year now. Working to stick to the low 180's or high 170's.

So much has changed since I lost the weight... I NEVER want to go back to that girl I was before. Time to live life like it should be lived!


Highest ever recorded weight - 344 (July 2010)
Starting weight this time around - 337 (Aug 2011)

Thanks for the support! I am determined to get my workout in. As you said, if I don't, then it becomes worse. I just need to tell myself I can-- and then DO IT. Positive thoughts, positive thoughts...!

Don't apologize - I think it is truly "Whiny Friday." There are even a group of us today at school - everything from splitting pants while pulling them on, to moaning over a pound gain. When I stepped on the scale this morning I was up - so that is a total of 7 up. I have a range of + and - 5 over my goal weight and now I am up 2.8 over the top of my plus end. Maintenance is hard. I refuse to go up any higher, but I am wondering what I am doing so differently, and I realize it TRULY is my snacking. I HAVE to be honest about this. One thing I did this morning was re-read my personal contract, then I stopped beating myself up. Then, I took the box of chocolate that was in my desk and I put it in the teacher's lounge - I'm sure no one really appreciated that, except the guys - hehehehe. Hang in there! We are in this together and here to support one another. YOU have a wedding to plan, which is stressful enough. Just keep being true to your goals and you will rock this maintenance deal. You will NOT become another statistic!

Success is a Choice
-Unknown
"Today I will make many choices, and each will have a consequence. Today I can choose to tell myself that I am worth the effort, or I can tell myself doesn't matter, I'll do it tomorrow. Today I can choose to journal, or I can choose not to. Today I can choose to drink my water, or I can choose to be
dehydrated. Today I can choose to stay in my points range, or I can choose to hinder my goals. Today I can choose to be more active, or I can choose to take the easy way. Today I can choose to be motivated, or I can choose to tell myself "I can't." Today I can choose success. IT IS MY CHOICE."

Sometimes I forget how much I drop those Cusses while I'm doing Vlogs. When I blog I'll start typing and they'll send up in my blog, but SparkPeople gives me a hell no when I try to post, not so much with the vlogs. LOL It just comes out when I'm passionate about something! I'm glad I'm not the only person who cusses like a sailor and is just like whatever!

FYI I haven't seen Dexter. I was waiting until I had a whole month to just devote to it so I can watch it until my eyes bleed!

Your tree sounds so cute! No Worries the reason you didn't see my other cat is because he was bedded in the tree while I was vlogging. He has claimed it as his new home!

You look fantastic! I wouldn't worry about sizes. We have both did such a wonderful job that it would be an absolute shame to spend any more time hating the way we look! We are gorgeous!
