Never trade what you want the most for what you want at the moment.

Wrote this the other day thought it fit for the moment.


I am trying.
I am showing up for the party.
I know I can do this because I HAVE done this.
I know this takes work.
I know this takes hard headed determination.
I know this takes sacrificing the foods I LOVE for ones that love me.

Jan 22, 2010 Starting weight 414

My name is Sandy. I am married. I work as a pharmacy tech and I am on my feet constantly. Unfortunately, my schedule is all over the place and I can not regulate my meal and exercise times.

I have always been over weight. I have been healthy, or as healthy as a fat person can be. No health issues that I know of but my body is sure letting me know as I get older that it's TIRED of carrying this fat around. My feet are going to give out on me one day soon if I don't finally get this off. My body has become stiff, probably with the onset of arthritis from my fat breaking it down.

I just want to feel good. I want to look good. I know that once I lose this weight I will have sag and bag but I want to know what it would feel like on my chest to take a breath that isn't labored. TO have it flow in and out of me easily. To walk up stairs and not huff. To jump into a pickup truck and not have to pull myself up with all my might into the cab because it sits too high off the ground.

Ive come a long way but I still have a long way to go. I've got to "pick my hard."

Add me as a pal, shoot me a message, ask me ANYTHING and if I know I'll get back with ya. Im on social media sites too so if you got this far and need a buddy hit me up!

My Program:
Stay in calorie range.

Drink water and more water and more water and some sugar free lemonade.

Try to stay away from white food (sugar, flour, salt)

Try to stay away from a lot of processed food products.

Personal Information:
Im 46 years old looking to be fit by the time I hit 50. Im married the 2nd time around to David and getting ready to celebrate our 6th anniversary on June 27 2015. I have 2 children from a previous marriage. I have a son Jake in the US Army and a daughter Molly working her way through college and she's a mommy of my beautiful grand daughter Aubree. You'll see lots of pics of them all :) We have 2 pets. A yorkie poo and a jack russell mix that is a puppy and chewing EVERYTHING. I may just have to ask for a new dinette set after he gets out of this stage. ;) I work as a pharmacy tech, constantly on my feet taking steps but not really pushing the envelope so to speak. I like to draw, create things with my hands and imagination. Shopping woo hoo. But shopping with the husband is like hunting with the game warden. *sigh*

Other Information:
Ummm...just an average person getting by the best way I can.

Ive hit the -100 pounds mark a few times now I need it to be behind me moving to the -150.

Happiest Daisy Day to you to you to you!!

Trick some exercise into your work. Maybe not very aerobic but strength exercise. For example: walk with your knees bent like a half squat, March those knees high, reach for the sky with your arms, hold your arms out in different positions carrying stuff. Stretch....
You have come a long way, sneak in as much as you can on the job. You can do it!
