So I am starting over again. But that is ok. I am back in the BLC for round 21 and ready to make this my year no matter what! My Goal for this year is to lose 60lbs and stay consistent which is something I struggle with more than the weight loss itself. If I accomplish my goal then I will be at 160 or so by the end of the year and that will only leave another 25-30 lbs to reach my ultimate goal of 130-135 which I will do sometime next year. No more excuses. I have to make this work! ...

*********************************** I've realized that every time I start to succeed I do something to pull myself back and not let myself get to where I want to be. Change is scary and I know this... but I also know that it is past time for me to change my ways. I am determined this time to keep moving forward... every time I take a step back I will take two more steps forward... I will not allow my fear to hold me back any longer! All roads do lead to the future... the question is which future do I want to go to?
I guess it is past time to update my page here. Things have not been going to well for the past few months. I have been losing and gaining the same 5-10lbs now since about November. I was hoping that the most recent round of the BLC would break me out of my rut but unfortunately it has not. I have not been concentrating on my plan as much as I should have been due to the confusion over our recent move and everything else that has been going on in my life recently. After seeing the scale go up again today however I have decided that it is time to stop using all of this as an excuse and get back on the ball. As of 3-24-10 I am recommitting myself to this wonderful journey that we are all on. I know that I will still stumble but I will not let myself jump off the wagon again like I did recently.
I have always had issues with my weight since about 4th grade. I have gained and lost weight many times over the years, including during my two pregnancies. Unfortunately the trend has been steadily upwards and I am now over the 200lb. mark that I always hoped I would never hit. I have decided it is past time to take my weight under control. I hope to get myself back on track and reach my goal by my 30th birthday next year.
My long term goal is to get down to 135 (this is considered a healthy weight for my height and frame size). I intend to do this in small steps and reward myself along the way as I achieve each small step.
My mini goals will be to lose at least 5% of my body weight each round. I am not going to set a time limit because that would just discourage me but hopefully I can do each 5% goal in about 2 months each.
Do at least 30 minutes of cardio 5 days per week, up to 7 days per week.
Do at least 20 minutes of strength training 3 days a week, up to 7 days a week.
Drink at least 10 8oz glasses of water a day.
Stay within the recommended daily nutrition guidelines on SparkPeople.com.

My biggest motivation in life is my children. Everything I do is done for them. Even this journey is made for them, so that I can be a healthier mom and be able to take care of and keep up with my children. I want to be around for them for a long time and I want them to look up to me as an example of what they should try to achieve in their lives.
