It's time to hit the old reboot button and get this journey restarted. I faltered a bit there for a couple months, but I've recommitted to my journey. I am stronger of mind if not of body, but I am going to drag this here body along with me. I know I can do this, and I am going to do this. I am DONE.

My old intro text:
I am a 34 year old woman who is tired of feeling unattractive, unworthy and unable to do simple things, like walk upstairs without being winded. This is my second foray into losing weight, the first time went smashingly, lost 73 pounds, looked and felt great, then I met someone who I let make me feel like I wasn't worthy, old insecurities took over and in the course of 4 years I not only gained back the 73 pounds but an additional 10 on top of it. I hit my 'rock bottom' in February 2010 when I found myself on the scale looking at this huge number. I decided it was time to stop messing around. I mean to fight this fight again, and this time I am going to win, and NO ONE is going to stand in my way ever again. Slow and steady...here we go!

I am DONE...

...letting other people determine my self worth.

...giving of myself and getting nothing in return.

...with negative self talk.

...with putting crap into my body and expecting it to give me it's best.

...hiding in corners because I feel like I don't fit in with the world.

...being a people-pleaser, I am going to work on only pleasing myself for a while.

...being the FAT girl. DONE.
