Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
03/18/2012 - Wow, this page gives a lot of perspective. No use feeling bad. Here I go!
01/23/2011 - Here I am almost a year later and still overweight and scared and struggling. But you can tell I stopped checking in because I am heavier than before and need to get back into a regular workout schedule. I went to church last night and heard a great message about how you know when you have matured. Three of the points sum up as: you are mature when you do when you need to, what is expected, and are not held back by fear but are instead motivated by it. I want to be mature and this is the beginning. I weigh in at 218lbs. I am a mother of two and wife of nearly 8 years. My goals here are to take this shorter-periods at a time, to learn to appreciate the slow-and-steady, and to finally BELIEVE that I REALLY can do this. It has never really sunk in that I REALLY can, because I have failed in the past. But that was all just seasoning and marinade. Let's burn off this fat, get off these medications, and just get healthy.
I realize now how intimately tied to my emotions all of my overeating is. It is kind of scary! And I see now just how much I need the help and support of others. I tend to turn inwards when things get rough, but this is all part of my journey. Over the next 12 months, I want to not only lose weight (58lbs) but I just want to get my inner belief, confidence, and goddess back. Here I come!
02/2010 -- It's been tough. But I'm back and ready for the next challenge. This might be, mentally and emotionally, the hardest thing I've ever had to conquer. But I won't give up. I can't continue to be afraid of failure. I wanna look good. And frankly, I just wanna DO IT and not have to constantly be "working on it". To paraphrase Kirk Franklin:
I'm ready for my sign...for my miracle.
It's time to stand up and fight. This is it!
You can't mess with my mind anymore.
I'm smarter, see I've been here before.
IT'S TIME. I'M NOT AFRAID ANYMORE. Yes, I believe.
This is it!
12/2009 -- I am a 32-year old mother of two and wife of 6.5 years. I have been struggling with my weight since I was in 5th grade. That's when I became "aware" of my weight being a problem in my goal towards being a cheerleader. Well, I am tired of it being an issue at all. And I can't stand to be cutting my life short while making my list of doctors and daily pills longer! So I am giving myself over to the process and taking my own ego out of it. I need this. I am ready.
