I'm half way to my goal! Go Me! I can't believe I got off my lazy behind and did it! Now it doesn't seem like that big a deal, to make the change. I wouldn't go back to my old life style if you PAID me! xD For the first time, I can look at a mirror, I can look at a camera, I see my reflection in the doors as I walk into various stores (not that I shop a lot), and ever time I see my reflection, unless my hair is doing it's Medusa impression, I see how far I've come. For the first time since before I gained all the weight, I could SEE myself and SMILE at the same time. Tentatively, maybe, but it was a true smile. Like I didn't mean to, but suddenly it was there :). And I liked it.

-- RECAP--
It's been a few years since I've been around. Life got crazy and I did end up gaining the weight back. I was going to re-write this and start over, but I think reading how I felt when I had actually made it so far has reminded me that I've done this before, and I can do it again! Wouldn't mind a bit of pay though, lol. Here's to 2013, a year of action, because without action, there can be no change!

Uuuugh. What happened? Seems like I'm back in that pit again and just can't break free. I hate the way I feel, I hate the way I look... I hate the way i'm only comfortable in the baggiest of clothes and I'm ashamed at how poorly I do trying to keep up with my son... and he's trying to pace me! I've got to get back out there and on the road to healthy and happy! I want to go into 2016 strong and ready for this to be the year I get back on track and maybe even reach that goal I set all those years ago.... got 100lbs to lose, I really want this!

Well. It's 2016. I still have 100LBS to lose... I haven't given up hope at least. I've never been able to maintain my commitment to any kind of support group, or lifestyle change to help me drop the weight, so instead on actually focusing on my weight loss for the next few months, I want to focus more simply on subjecting myself to a supportive healthy environment. I'll be able to go with the flow once i get there... Here's to progress in this 2016

My Goals:
I'm going to drop this weight (goal: 130lbs) and shape my muscles so I can feel like ME again. I want to be able to keep up with my son, and be proud of who I am. Taking better care of myself will ultimately improve my health so I can achieve success.

My Program:
I work with the wii fit, and kinect, and a pair of sneakers...

Personal Information:
I'm just a humble country mom of 1 here in Central Texas. My Golden Boy was born in 2005, and is the joy of my life. He's my biggest motivational reason for wanting to get back into shape.

Other Information:
I love to read, and play video games... I'm a home body and don't do well in large groups... or medium groups... or some small groups... I also like going fishing or swimming, long walks with my camera, though I seldom find the time anymore... I seem to have an irrational disposition to flee from any kind of consistency lately, and would like to change that as well.
