I have had a great many set backs this past year, but I am starting over......again. I am a funny or at least people laugh at me....hmmmm, mother of 4 boys. One in his 20's and 3 teens. Because, you have to have a sense of humor when raising teenagers....I recently read that rasing teens is like nailing Jello to a tree. It's true. LOL They are wonderful guys, but trying to diet in a house full of growing boys is hard. I really don't know how I manage to keep this weight on, they eat ...

I put on weight w/ my first pregnancy, and managed to take it off, then on it went again. Now I am back on track and hopefully, fingers crossed, will have great victories.
I am excited about really doing it this time. I joined this website in '07 I think and played around with it a bit...... but now I am really using it everyday and have found great supportive teams. I have learned how to use the food tracker and the fitness trackers properly and they are a wonderful help.

Reasons to unload the extra me!
1. Get Healthy for me.
2. Get healthy for my family.
3. To only do my heavy breathing w/my husband. ;) Not walking up a flight of stairs.
4. So I won't be judged by my outsides so often.
5. So my butt will fit into regular chairs and airplane seats.
6. Shop in regular sized stores.
7. To want to have my picture taken.
8. To wear heels occasionally.
9. To wear skirts again. Not floor length but regular
knee length.
10. To not have to squeeze into my kayak.
11. Fit into my roller blades again.
12. to love my outsides as much as I love my insides.
13. not to be so tired all the time.
14. to have my feet stop hurting.

That's how i was seeing the photo as a kind of release. I would never do that I wont have the guts! But seeing you do it is really inspirational because we can do anything. I wish you the best of luck in your losses! Did you get the Nikon d80? I almost bought that camera when I was shopping. Everyone goes for Canon and doesnt even shop around or study. I was very happy with Nikon, then I read Pentax produced beautiful colors and saw. So I went with Pentax and I just love it to pieces. Not popular but who cares! That's cool your friend has a rattie, they are such sweet dogs! Good Job your 16 lbs loss, your on your way!!!
