Sustaining the Status Quo with an Overabundance of Sustenance

Hi,
I'm 5'3" and at a starting weight of 187. It's time for me to break out of my mold; get away from my own status quo, and blossom into awesome. I want to cut back some indulgences in order to gain some "skinny people" options. Did you ever notice all the cutest Boutiques are squeezed into pocket sized rooms? I want to go in those shops without fear of knocking over the racks. I deserve to browse cute wares in tiny rooms.

If I keep re-starting it's gotta stick sometime... right? I've gained 80 pounds in a year and a half! It was a bad year :( But I've done it before and I'll do it again! I've got my dry erase board marked off with 366 (leap year) blocks, my fluted vase awaiting either a black or clear bead depending on my success for the day, and a two month chart to track exercise. I'm peeling grapefruit as we speak. I will succeed!

God I miss crossing my legs. I want to wear my heels again without fear of breaking an ankle. I'm going to start trying to get pregnant in January 2013 (my degree will be finished) and I want to be at my healthiest and strongest when I begin that journey.

Aug 28th Update: I have 4 months to take off some of this weight. I've begun juicing in the hopes of quick weight lose. If you've watched the movie "Fat, Sick and nearly dead," you know the participants lost around 80 lbs in 60 days. I hope to walk an hour a day at two intervals to maximize the weight lose. We shall see. Watch my progress on the weight listings above.

Welp, it's December 1st 2013. I've just given birth to a beautiful baby boy named Charles Frank. While I was pregnant I never had an inclination to binge once. The day after he was born the hunger took over again. I thought the respite from the desire to eat incessantly was assuaged because I was so happy to have a baby. But the happiness didn't subside but the hunger came back. That's what gave me the clue it might be hormonal. So with that in mind I go forward. The juice fast I mentioned in my previous post was to expensive to stick with at the level I had intended. One episode with what I thought was a reasonable size piece of raw ginger went especially awry. But I honed my tastes and found a lot of really good recipes in the process! In going to use that knowledge as I move forward in my weight lose journey. I'm 214 lbs and I'd like to get back down to 129lbs. That's 85 lbs to lose :D

December '13 ---- 214lbs

Those hopeful of better days are less inclined
to risk today on momentary gratification ~Herbert Gans

The disciplined mature individual does not act simply to gratify the feelings and impulses of the moment. She sees long range objectives. Lasting happiness comes not from indulgences driven by current sensations but from the achievement of ultimate goals.

CONGRATULATIONS on being able to try for another baby. My daughter was trying for several years and just found out yesterday that she's expecting. Wishing you all the best.

You are HILARIOUS! I gained 35 pounds in a half a year so I'm pretty sure that puts us in the same boat (God I hope it's not a tiny canoe) I felt thin before too, but was never there long enough to really enjoy it. Let do it, one peeled grapefruit or pineapple (I live in Hawaii) at a time. Good luck!
