Hi! My name is Amy. I am a Spanish teacher in Las Vegas and I am really working on getting healthy. I moved here from Virginia in 2006 and I want to use the new start in all aspects of my life. I have a lot to lose and I am really doing it this time! I have a lot of weight to lose but a very good future to gain.

Update:12/07/10: Still stuck at 329. I have not been able to exercise much since I hurt my hip. At least it is not a labral tear but it is frayed and I am trying to get the inflammation down. Trying Dr. Johnson's Alternate Day again to see if I can get rid of this inflammation.
Update 08/21/2010: Well overall it has been a great year. I started last August at 381 and I am now at 329.5 YAY!!!! Still doing Paleo/Primal Blueprint it has worked better for me than any other diet I have ever done and since I am still doing it a year later I think that's proof. I still have a hard time with frequent plateaus and I saw an endocrinologist this summer and he said all is fine except a Vit. D deficiency and that unfortunately I was fighting genetics and couldn't rewrite my DNA. Contrary to his belief though, I am going to win the fight! I have also completed my Masters degree in Education and I bought my first house in November so I am pretty proud of me. It has been a pretty good year. Been lax the past 3 weeks so it's time for school to start and time to get back on track and lose the 8 pounds I've gained this summer. Let's go we can do this- here's to another successful year!

Update 08/25/09: I started using the Paleo diet last Tuesday 8/18/09 and I am losing pretty fast but it has only been a week. I lost 9 pounds this week and feel really good. With all of my newly found allergies including wheat, this diet was highly recommended. I love eating like a cavewoman and I think my body loves it too!

My new Inspirational Quotes:

Samuel Johnson:
The chains of habit are generally too small to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.

Vincent Lombardi:
The good Lord gave you a body that can stand most anything. It's your mind you have to convince.

Myself:
My current body it the most precious gift I have ever been given.

My 10 Ultimate References
1. My body is God's Temple.
2. I was created by God in His image so I am made perfect by Him.
3. My body is my only real instrument to live my life's purpose and I will respect it.
4. My body is my life and when it is gone so am I from this earth.
5. My body is my vehicle to be the best teacher/mentor I can be.
6. My body is an intricate and amazing system perfectly designed by God.
7. I am an intelligent and beautiful woman perfectly designed.
8. My legs get me where I need to go and are strong and capable.
9. I respect this body I have been blessed with and will treat it like God's Temple.
10. I have only one life to live and one life to give to God so I will take full advantage of it.
