The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. -Albert Einstein
That's me. Insane. For years I have been telling myself that I was done being fat. And for years, all I have done is get fatter. This year I reached an all time high of 310lbs. For me my big "ah-ha moment' was watching biggest loser, (I believe it was season 10) and thinking to myself "wow, those girls are huge, at least I'm not that bad." and then they did weigh-ins and what do-you-know, I weighed more than every single one of the female contestants. To me that was a real eye-opener. Because in my mind I don't see myself as fat, but then I see pictures and see the scale and I am always in shock. Especially pictures, i always think, "Is that really what I look like?" So, I joined SparkPeople in Jan of 2011, but really didn't do anything different. I was eating a little better, maybe going to the gym a couple times a month, but that's it. I actually fooled myself into thinking I was doing a good job because I hadn't gained any more weight.
But things are different now. Now, I am ready to do this. Something inside me just clicked, and I know now is my time. I have started my journey, for real this time. I know if I am going to change my appearance, than I have to change my life. Period.
I can't keep trying the same things over and over, and expecting different results. That's insane. SO, now is my time. I am going to do this!
