On my way to a better me...

07/31/2012- I keep telling myself that I'm going to get back on track, but something ALWAYS gets in the way of starting the healthy lifestyle I know I am supposed to be living. I have now gained 25 pounds back...YUK!!!!! I am renewing my vows to my husband on February 9, 2013 and I want to look amazing for the wedding I've been waiting 12 years to finally have. This is going to be hard! I've been eating everytime I'm hungry, which seems ALL the time. My body has become accustomed to my old ...
07/31/2012- I keep telling myself that I'm going to get back on track, but something ALWAYS gets in the way of starting the healthy lifestyle I know I am supposed to be living. I have now gained 25 pounds back...YUK!!!!! I am renewing my vows to my husband on February 9, 2013 and I want to look amazing for the wedding I've been waiting 12 years to finally have. This is going to be hard! I've been eating everytime I'm hungry, which seems ALL the time. My body has become accustomed to my old eating habits again. When I started on SparkPeople I was 249 (originaly 255) and I will NOT return back to that frumpy, obese, unhappy, unhealthy, lazy person I was. Here's to the new me, once again!!!

05/10/2012 - Thanks to SparkPeople I have lost a total of 115 pounds (255 to 140) but have gained 12 back. I am now back to 152. I have to get serious again in order to be down to 130 and be truly happy. I know it's going to take some time to get there but like I did before, I will do it 10 pounds at a time. I want to be in a size 4 by July 2012. I can do it, I know I can :)


3/1/10- I stepped on the scale this morning and I couldn't believe my eyes. I weigh 159.8!!! A total of 90 lbs shedded off of my body...woooohoooo!!!!!!!!

*Update* Today is February 2, 2010 and I have officialy hit my goal that I set back in October of 2008. I am now at 165 lbs, 84 lbs gone off of my body forever!!!! I look at the picture to my left and just can't believe that I let myself get that way. I feel so much healthier and I have a lot more self esteem, which is great to have after so many years of being so overweight. WOW, I still can't believe it. I'm so happy and I refuse to allow myself to get to that size ever again!!!! I am now starting my new goal of 20 more lbs that need to be gone. That will be a total of 104 lbs gone!!! Yayyyyyy

I am just simply tired of being over weight and ignoring it. It's time I truly do something about it, instead of eating "healthy" here and there and lying to myself about it.

5/6- I just came across a post in the message boards today and it really made sense..."I was so overwhelmed by what seemed a lack of food. I had no idea I put so much into my mouth". I am still in that frame of mind right now that "that's not going to fill me up" but after I'm done eating I do feel full. I just have to keep telling myself that the amount of food I was putting in my mouth was unhealthy and that's why I gained 120 lbs in about 3 years and I've kept doing the yo-yo thing for the past 15 years. I lost 40 lbs about 4 years ago but I put it back on plus some. I WILL NOT do that again!!! I do not want to be the weight I was when I started back in October. I didn't do too good during the holidays but I REFUSE to put weight back on. I need to be healthy for my children so that I can enjoy doing things with them and not be so tired! My son loves to skateboard and my daughter keeps me on my toes with her being 4 years old. I don't want to be sitting on the bench at the park watching other parents play with their kids and my children see that and wonder why I'm not playing with them. It's time I get off my ARS and do something about it and stop making freaking excuses!!!!

My Goals:
My goal is to do it 10 lbs at a time. It seems more realistic for me and it's working. I'm not feeling overwhelmed that I have to lose 47 more lbs. In my mind I'm thinking "geeez, only 10 more pounds and I'll be 37 lbs closer to my goal weight".

My Program:
I am watching my calories, which I never thought I could do. And I'm doing a 2 mile walk s-m-w-f. I have comcast cable and they have a sports & fitness channel. I turn that on and go to walking and it's an actual power walking program. I love it!

Personal Information:
I'm married to a great guy and we've been together 14 years (married 9). He seen me when I was in a size 14 and he's seen me in a size 24. And even though In my mind I thought he was going to leave me because of my weight, he stayed with me and loved me no matter what. I love him so much! I'm also a mother of 2 children, I love my kids and will do anything for them. I live here in Jacksonville.

Thanks for commenting on my page! It can be so frustrating after all the progress we have made. We are beautiful, we just have to believe it. As long as it may take, I am going to work hard on loving myself and seeing myself as beautiful and accept myself for the way I am. Thanks for your support! You have no idea how much it means to me!
