I am sooo DONE and I am WORTH IT!!!
My name is Tricia and I've been overweight my entire life. I've always been very self-conscious about it, but I'm a jeans and sweatshirt kind of girl, so it wasn't really too bad to hide. Then I graduated from college, stopped walking everywhere, and went from 165 to 195 at an alarming rate. It's still pretty easy to hide under jeans and sweatshirts but I'm sick of wanting to hide myself. It's one thing to wear clothes because they are comfy and it's what I choose to wear.

My name is Tricia and I've been overweight my entire life. I've always been very self-conscious about it, but I'm a jeans and sweatshirt kind of girl, so it wasn't really too bad to hide. Then I graduated from college, stopped walking everywhere, and went from 165 to 195 at an alarming rate. It's still pretty easy to hide under jeans and sweatshirts but I'm sick of wanting to hide myself. It's one thing to wear clothes because they are comfy and it's what I choose to wear. It's something totally different to be so ashamed of how you look you want to hide under what you wear. I used to love dressing up (when I was 165 and even then I didn't like how I looked) but now every time I have to wear dressy clothes it reduces me to tears until finally I just throw something on and feel horrible about how I look.
Well, I'm done with it all. I'm done feeling ashamed, done not loving the body I live in, and done pretending I'm doing something about it when I'm not really giving getting healthy my best efforts. I don't do anything else half-way, why should my health, my body and taking care of them both be any different? I'm ready to start a new lifestyle on the road to a healthy me!
Also, I just had my 5 year wedding anniversary in March and we are trying to have a second child, so I want to get healthy for that. I want to be able to have another healthy pregnancy without any complications because of my weight. I also want to be able to look nicer for my husband when we are making a baby... I just want to start a healthy lifestyle that I can stick with for the rest of my life so that I can teach my kids to be healthy too.
I am DONE…
… Being the fat girl
… Being the fat friend
… Making excuses
… Having low self-esteem
… Being unhealthy
…Making poor food choices
…Expecting immediate results
…Getting upset over slow results
… Comparing myself to everyone else
… Feeling uncomfortable in my own body
… Being ashamed of my body
… Feeling like I’m not worth it
… Hating going clothes shopping
… Wearing baggy clothes to hide myself
… Believing other people only see my weight and not me because that’s how I feel
… Feeling uncomfortable in social situations
… Not feeling good enough
… Letting myself go

Do cardio exercises at least 5 times a week - My favorites are taking my dog for a walk, playing Dance Dance Revolution or Wii Fit on my Wii, or swimming.
Do strength training exercises at least 3 times a week.
Log on to spark people every day to log what I eat to keep my calories in control.
Weigh myself every week to keep it in check. If it goes up I will do something about it immediately if it goes down it will be cause for a small celebration!
I live in Sun Prairie, Wi and love walking my dog so if anyone from here wants to join us we are always looking for new friends, dogs and human!
Finish each day
And be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and
Absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can.
The sun gives us light but the moon provides inspiration. If you look at the sun without shielding your eyes you'll become blind. If you look at the moon without covering your eyes you'll become a poet.
Never confuse a SINGLE defeat with a FINAL defeat!
Nothing tastes as good as being skinny feels!
