I am super excited! If you all have read my previous blogs, you know that anything below 307.5 has eluded me since the beginning of the year. I made it a personal goal to get below 307.5 and could not reach it for whatever mental reason. So, this morning I received a pleasant surprise. When I stepped on the scale and it said, "Your weight is 3-oh-7.3 lbs.", I darn near jumped out of my skin! Oh-eM-Gee! I only have 7.4 lbs to go to reach my 299.9 mark. I'm only 37.3 lbs away from my June 1 goal. I suppose I will take all of this excited energy and use it on a Leslie Sansone 5 mile walk. Yep, it is 2:13 AM ET, but I know that if I don't do it now, I won't do it. That's another thing I hope to work on during this journey. I hope to get myself to a point where I stop procrastinating with my workouts. I will get my workout clothes on then sit down with my laptop as I have just done, and will not move from the spot I am in for hours. So, with that being said, I hope you all have a great day and I am about to get my Leslie Sansone on.
Love, Peace, & Motivation,

Sunday, began my 4th day doing The Simple Diet. For those you who may not know, The Simple Diet is.....SIMPLE. It consists of drinking 3 meal replacement shakes (Slim Fast, Special K, etc.), eating 2 pre-packaged meals (Healthy Choice, Smart Ones, Lean Cuisine, etc.), 5-6 servings of fruits and veggies (aka fruggies), and drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day. See, simple. That's Phase 1. I started this diet on Thursday at 315.6 lbs. I weighed around 8 P.M. on Sunday night and I was at 310.1. So, for three days on the diet I lost 5.5 lbs. Not too bad. I plan on doing it for at least a month. Wonder what my results will be by then... So far, so good. I am not hungry, not craving anything, or any of the usual pitfalls I encounter. I haven't done any real exercising yet because of my foot. I think I will try to start an exercise program around Wednesday as long as my foot doesn't give me any problems. I walked a bit on Saturday morning but other than that, nothing. If you're doing The Simple Diet, let me know how far along you are and what your results are. I am open to any tips.
Love, Peace, and Motivation,

I recently updated my page and these are the goals I have listed for myself:
* Be sexy-ER by summer. lol
* Get below 220 lbs.
* Be at 270 by June 1, 2012. (-42.1 lbs)
* Be 250 by August 17, 2012 (my birthday) (-20.0 lbs)
* Be 220 or below by December 31, 2012. (-30.0+ lbs)
* Total weight loss goal for the year - 92.1 lbs
I have been wanting to get down to 220 lbs since forever. That was my goal weight when I first started SparkPeople. I don't rightfully know where the number came from but that's what popped into my head. Maybe it came from me not wanting to be a stick figure. At my height, 220 is not a bad weight. Heck, compared to 338.8, 220 is an AWESOME weight! I set my goals the way I did because I know the weight will come off faster in the beginning. I may not make the August goal of 250 but I'm going to definitely shoot for it. If not, I have 4 months to drop over 30 lbs and make up the difference. At 2-3 lbs a week I should be at 32-48 lbs in 4 months so that is definitely doable. I'm sick of setting goals and not finishing them. I'm starting a workout regime on Monday. I had a recent accident where I cut my foot and had to get stitches so I am making sure it is good and healed before I start anything strenuous. At any rate, I am focused and ready to drop these lbs.

I wake up each day and look in the mirror and staring back at me is a beautiful person; full of life, joy, and for some reason she is smaller than my actual size. How is that possible? She is the "ME" I see whenever I look at myself. For some reason, I look at myself and see a medium-sized girl. Go figure! I want to make that image a reality. I want to look in the mirror and see the real me. I've been doing some sort of diet or lifestyle change since the end of 2009. I got down to 286 in '10 and then who knows what happened. I've been up and down with my weight since then. I do well for a bit then fall off the wagon. I've been having this same issue the entire time. I know that I need to lose the weight, want to lose, the weight, but have no idea how to stay motivated and on track. I think I plan too much. I discourage myself before I ever start. I'm one of those people who has to "Just Do It" and not make any extensive plans and goals. Goals discourage me. I have a huge mental block when it comes to trying to reach a certain number. I said I wanted to lose 5 lbs and I lost 4.9... WTW!?!?!? Could not lose that 5 lbs to save my life. So, now I suppose I will take a different approach and just do it. Whatever weight I end up at is where I end up at as long as it is smaller than my current size. The "ME" I see is who I want to be.
Randomness: I swear I have ADHD. Nope, wait, ADD. I'm not hyper at all. My mind flows a mile a minute. You guys should see me trying to focus enough to write a blog. It gets crazy. I have to write and re-write so much because i am all over the place with my writing; its a shame. Anywho, I digress...
I need suggestions, guys. What have you done to get your mind in gear? What have you done to stay motivated? Leave me comments. Let me know. I need all the help I can get at this point.
Until next time; love, peace, and motivation!!!
