So after two years, back again.
It's interesting, when I started SparkPeople I weighed 125lbs. That's the heaviest I've ever been. And my goal weight was 115lb.
Now I'm back. I had attained that goal and then some, getting down to 110lbs. At one point I was hovering around 118lbs and then moving into a new house in over 100 degree weather I was able to reach 110lbs. For a while I hovered around 113lbs, but now I got back up to 115lbs and am getting angry at my belly.
I know people are like, oh my gosh how can you complain about being at 115lbs? I have this belly that drives me crazy. Even sitting right now I feel like I have a tire attached to my front.
So what's the plan?
Just healthier eating, think paleo (not all the time, but keep it in mind), and eat off of small plates.
I pretty much have a plan of eating a consistent lunch of chicken, broccoli, and some sort of healthier grain. Oddly enough I like steamed broccoli more than any other vegetable so I'm sticking with what I like.
I keep telling myself that I am the only reason I am not at the point I want to be.
We'll see how it goes this time around.

So I've been working hard to make healthy decisions and I'm not seeing the change I think I should. Well I think I have identified a few of the issues.
I LOVE beer. Especially my Summerfest. But I don't record these into my nutrition. And seeing as I drink at least two a day, and they are 158 calories each, that's 300 calories right there! Almost a whole meal in my book! Plus, I said at least. There are times where I have four a night! 600 calories! Since I'm not willing to give up my drinking habits, I need to take them into account when I'm tracking my calories instead of ignoring them like I used to.
I don't like them. I've made advances though, I do eat them. But I sure as hell don't like them. Especially by themselves. I'll eat broccoli, if it's mixed in pasta with some sort of cream sauce or cheese. All the veggies I eat have to be with something else, usually unhealthy or prepared unhealthily. I ate a baby carrot the other day and thought it was nasty. But in a chicken pot pie it was good. It took me five minutes to eat a strawberry. I know, I'm odd. I eat like a kid!
I crave bread, meat, eggs, and cheese all day long! But if I eat them and try to stay in my calorie range I feel starved all day! One of my friends who eats really healthy says that after a while you start to crave the healthy stuff, but I don't know. 24 years of meat and cheese is hard to turn around in a few months.
Does anyone have any suggestions to turn this picky eater to a veggie eater?

Well I need to lose weight. In the time that I met my boyfriend and learned to cook, I gained a lot of weight. I went from a size 00 to a 4. And I know people don't think a 4 isn't big, but it's the problem of the how quickly that all happened. In less than a year. I don't have a scale, but I think I should buy one. But right now I'm about a 3 by simply cutting out bacon in every meal.
I've gained so much weight that when I see my family on vacations they all comment about the weight that I've gained. When I talk to them on skype they all mention that my face got fatter. I don't fit in the clothes I have unless they are loose fitting shirts and pants that used to be big on me are now too small. On top of that I'm going on a family cruise in July and I don't want to shudder every time I look at the pictures from the trip.
I've had enough, I want to be thinner like I used to be. I never had to exercise or worry about my weight so I feel like I'm stumbling around. I hate the gym, hate running, and hate vegetables. Although the veggie thing is something I'm working on.
So what's this girl going to do?
-portion control (eat smaller meals)
-pack my own lunch (it's too easy to get pizza or fried foods)
-work out everyday with www.youtube.com/user/sparkpeople
Like I said, I don't like the gym or running. Instead I'm following the workout videos on sparkpeople's youtube account. I like them. They're not too hard and I can do them at home.
Okay well that's me. Why I'm trying to lose weight and how I'm going to.
I hope this works.
