"Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out."

Hello! Thanks for stopping by.

Being overweight is nothing new to me. In fact, as early as about first grade, I was already one of the chubby kids. Not so fun. Almost as soon as I realised this, I knew that I wanted to get healthier.

Fast forward about 15 years. Still chubby as all get out.

So. What could possibly keep me from losing weight after all this time?
Probably a combination of a few things: lack of motivation, being plain old ...
Hello! Thanks for stopping by.

Being overweight is nothing new to me. In fact, as early as about first grade, I was already one of the chubby kids. Not so fun. Almost as soon as I realised this, I knew that I wanted to get healthier.

Fast forward about 15 years. Still chubby as all get out.

So. What could possibly keep me from losing weight after all this time?
Probably a combination of a few things: lack of motivation, being plain old lazy sometimes, and most of all, doubting myself! Although I've tried innumerable times to lose weight and get healthy, my lack of belief in myself has always stopped me. If I had one bad day, I would give up everything I'd done! I'd lose 10-15 pounds, then have a stagnant week of weight loss and just give up. But not anymore!

I KNOW I can do this!
It's already happening.
And there is NOTHING that is going to stop me!
because....


I'm DONE:
-being uncomfortable in everything I wear
-dreading pictures of myself
-being embarrassed to run with other people
-barely fitting into clothes at stores that cater to size 12 or less
-rejecting compliments like it's my job
-doubting myself!!

so, here are the facts.
Nov 1st - 228.6
Nov 24th - 220.6 (-8.0)
Dec 6th - 221.4 (+.8) - it happens! it was an especially busy week.
Dec 7th - 218.8 (-2.6)
Dec 9th - 218.6 (-.2)
Dec 11th - 217.0 (-1.6)
Dec 20th - 216.8 (-.2)
I'll be updating soon.

March 15th - 220. eek
Saturday Morning Weigh-ins
March 20th - 218.4 (back in business!!)
March 27th - 217.4

Dec 2010 203.5 WOO
Jan 2011 -- more than that. meh.

Hey! You're right, we are in a really similar situation! I was exactly 203.5 this morning when I weighed myself, which I see you've put as your December weight (AWESOME job coming down from 228 to that!). The things you write about being DONE really speak to me... I can relate to every one of those! Especially being uncomfortable in clothes. Well, okay, I'd be more uncomfortable out of clothes, but I'm sure you know what I mean! Aaaand even more similar... we have the same name!
