“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 ...

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!
