I'm Back...again

Saturday, November 12, 2011

It has been a VERY long time since I have been on here, and in a state of mind to get my exercise and health back in line. Since I have been on here last, I have moved to another state, started all over - new job, new house, new city. The only thing that stayed the same, unfortunately, was my all out denial of what I was doing to myself health wise. I stopped going to the gym, stopped eating what I should be, and stopped listening to the little voice that kept telling me to get back on track. For awhile, it was easy to pretend I was happy and where I wanted to be. I am not sure when it happened, but I realized how unhappy I am right now. The new city is growing on me, I love my job, but I can't shake the feeling that I am unhappy. For awhile I thought I was homesick, but I think it boils down to I am uncomfortable with what I look like and how I feel. I have let myself go and I am ashamed of what I look like right now. It's hard to be in a city with great night life and not notice how out of place I feel because of how I look. I finally realize that I want to go out and enjoy myself, make new friends and love who I am. In order to do that I need to make some changes. Starting with getting back on this site and finding the help and guidance that all of the groups provide. I am also planning on starting right now with a new me and a new beginning. I know I won't be perfect, but I will be DOING MY BEST and that's all I can ask of myself. Here goes nothing!

New Beginnings

Sunday, December 19, 2010

It has been two long years of school for me. During that time, my needs were put last. I focused on school and work, and kept thinking that I would get to myself later. Later is here! I am now done with school and can focus on work and myself. I am determined to meet the goals I have set for myself. I am ashamed that I let myself go these last few months, but there is nothing I can do to change what has happened, only look forward to what I can do about it now! I plan on posting weekly on my blog a picture of my weight so I can hold myself accountable to stay on track. I can't wait to start seeing results!

Last Loser Standing...Just a minor setback

Tuesday, November 23, 2010


Unfortunately, I am out of the contest. It has nothing to do with my weight...which is a real bummer. I am currently on crutches and laid up with a "no weight bearing" order. I can't get on the scale! I have torn ligaments in my ankle and am in a good deal of pain...but I won't let it get me down! I plan on updating my personal blog with pictures and how I am doing as soon as I can get back on the scale. Thank you to everyone who has been so motivating and uplifting, it is so much easier to do this when you have people cheering you on. I wish all of you success in your weight loss goals!

Thank you for all of the support for people who are reading and commenting, it really does motivate me to keep going. Best wishes to all of you!
