Thailand Nov 2014 - ~233lbs, Feeling very uncomfortable in my own skin





This needs to change, very uncomfortable at this weight and I hate pics right now (10/14 @~234)





I felt huge here, realized this is what I look like and how everyone else sees me. (11/6/11 @220)



I have 19 pics in my gallery

I am DONE!

The last two years have been extremely difficult for me. Although there were many challenges, disappointments and sadness...there was the realization that I am stronger than I know.

I can do this...it's a matter of how bad do I want it and what am I willing to do? Right now, whatever it takes!

I am DONE.

I am DONE being the fat girl, friend, sister, daughter, date.
I am DONE neglecting myself.
I am DONE with excuses.

I am DONE.

I am DONE being the fat girl, friend, sister, daughter, date.
I am DONE neglecting myself.
I am DONE with excuses.
I am DONE blaming my health.
I am DONE doubting myself.
I am DONE comparing myself to others.
I am DONE NOT doing things because of my weight.
I am DONE judging myself because of my weight.
I am DONE not loving myself because of my weight.
I am DONE allowing others to treat me poorly.
I am DONE not believing in myself because I CAN do this!

And...

I am DONE getting in my own way and self-sabotaging!!!

This is my journey, bumps and all. I am choosing to create the life I have always dreamed of and feel happy, healthy and strong!

The end 2014 will be the time I finally learn how to get rid of this weight once and for all!

Thanks for the birthday wishes and goodie's, Shell! So glad to know you're making the effort to lose the weight. Believe me, it is well worth it, health-wise and confident-wise.
You inspired me to update my SparkPage , which was in serious need of updating!

Hey how's the healthy new way of life treating you? I like the list of what you are finished with, I'm done with a lot of that stuff too! I am done neglecting myself. Have you thought of a healthy reward that's not food?

Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in April The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! cant do it! But i am here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for 3 yrs. unfortunately due to lack of activity it took me 3 yrs to gain it all back, but im back to tell you that with your help I can do it again. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. i did very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! cut and paste link below
