First off, thank you everybody for your comments. I really appreciate them! Especially for when I am feeling low, I can look back and see all the positive remarks, and that really helps!
I hate easter...and I love it! My sister brought home reese's peanut butter eggs, (2 for me) and a bag of the chocolate eggs. Uggg. Well, my cat loves the foil wrappers of the little eggs, so what do I do? Eat a ton of eggs so that I can make a big foil ball for my cat, that she plays with for a minute. Sigh. Waste of calories, and time. Fickle cats.
I was still down a pound today, and I am officially out of the 240's. I hate the 40's mainly because it is WAY to close to the 50's. I never want to hit 250. I hit 249 once, and I worked out like a mad woman on speed for a week or so to get myself away from it. I am quite pathetic when I actually think about it. I have started to lose weight SO MANY TIMES. Each time I fall off of the wagon, saying that I will get back on after this holiday, or that party. The funny thing is, I made myself the way I am. I am a procrastinator. I am Severely Obese, and no matter who I want to blame...Mother for the childhood drama, dad for not caring for me like he does the others, sister for being selfish....it really is all my fault. I choose to eat that piece of chocolate instead of going for a run. I choose to eat McDonalds when I am hungry (or not) instead of a healthier substitution. These are all my choices, and now, I have to make a huge decision. Am I ready to lose weight? Am I ready to be the person that I want to be? Am I ready to drop the barrier that has kept me "safe" all these years. Truthfully...YES!!!
I want to be thin for the following reasons:
I want to live long enough to grandchildren.
I want children!
I want to attract a wonderful man and get married so I can lead to a) and b)
I want to wear cute outfits
I no longer want to be the designated ugly and fat friend
I want boys to buy me drinks
I want to be hit on
I want to flirt and not see people get grossed out
I want to dance and not feel self concious
Yup, I am SO ready. The weight is coming off, and I am on a mission to see that it KEEPS coming off!!
This is the start of a new me!!

Well, who doesn't love their fave music blasting away while booty shaking to the beat?? I LOVE it, and I am now using it to conquer my nights. Instead of eating, toss on the ipod, and dance out the frustrations of the day. An hour of that last night, and I was panting away. Then I proceeded to do 120 crunches, making me feel real sore and great at the same time!!
This will be a great way to conquer the night time, and to calm myself down after, I proceeded to start my weight loss scrap book!!
I am feeling good today, and I can't wait till weigh in next week!!!

The evenings are my weakness. I need to find another outlet besides food. UGG.
I ate SOOO much last night. It was almost like someone took over, and I sat back and watched as I consumed food. Every kind of food, veggies, breads/cereal, chocolate and chips. I finally stopped, and I was like...what have I done?
This is the way it always goes for me though. This is technically my second time on Sparkpeople. The first time I lost 30lbs. THough I have gained it all back. This time I am here for the long haul, SO...I have to drink more water and herbal teas, and find something else to do in the evenings. Sucks when I am stuck in the middle of nowhere, and its cold. It will be better when it warms up, then I can go for walks, or canoeing, :) I can't wait for the ice to melt. Right now, I am tending a soar knee. SIGH. I hate restrictions..LOL
Today is a new day, and I am within my calorie range. I WILL NOT CHEAT TONIGHT

Tomorrow is yet another day!

Today is the first day of the rest of my life, I am feeling good!!
I am getting rid of the things/people in my life who bring me down, and I am looking at the positive. I will lose weight, I will be in control of my life again! I am a good person, and I will remember this EVERY day!
