I am losing weight because I want to be healthier, I want to give my daughter a more positive role model, I want her to see that we need to watch what we eat and exercise to take care of our bodies, I want to be fit, I just want to do this for me. I am ready for a change. I turned 27 weighing 281 now I am aiming to turn 28 weighing 215. Wow that is a big turn around. So I will see if I can do this. Actually I know I can, if I have made it this far I can make it even farther. I am going to reach my ultimate goal of 172, but right now I am aiming for 181. then I will take it a notch farther. Here I come.

The end of March is here, I need to focus on April and write up my goals for the new month. I plan on doing that today. There are a few things I need to change and work on. I am glad I am finally losing this weight, sometimes its hard though, because of the time that it takes to lose, seems like you can gain it so fast but to lose it requires a whole lot more work. Oh well, I am going to keep moving on. I am on a mission. It seems like every time I go down, the more excited I get, right now this last week has been tough because TOM came and threw me off. So I need to lose my 4lbs by APril 8th to meet the Easter Challenge goal. Hope to make it. I am going to work my behind off as best as I can during Spring Break.

I went to the gym today and a lady who I see on a normal basis, really nice says hello to me, and then she says "You are sticking to it, huh?" I just replied "Yeah" and got on the treadmill and started running. Now the day before there was an older man who told me " You have been coming to the gym a long time now, My wife and I didn't think you were going to stick to it!" How would you take this??? I posted this as a post too, because its truly bothering me but I don't know how to handle it so I am coming to my BBQ's with it.

I have tried many things in the past. Just to name a few.........Phentermine, Atkins, Lemonade Diet, and one Slim Fast bar, only to bring the weight right back. I have finally come to the "REALIZATION" that if I do this right I hope to never have to fight the weight off again. This time its different, its the last time, because I have been working on this since July 2006 and I haven't given up yet. I think my turning point was coming back to the states, I was so unhappy, I had been in Italy for 4.5 years (which I loved Italy) I just didnt like the tests that I had to go through over there with my marriage, my job and just me as a whole. I went through so much stress and I came back depressed, confused and sad. I decided it was time to do something about me. So I joined a gym,July 14th, 2006 ( I will never forget this day) I stepped on the scale in the gym, and my heart hit the floor. I saw the numbers 281 on the scale. This was the biggest I had ever been. It was definetly a wake up call. I am so glad no one was around because I didnt want anyone to know that number at that time. I just revealed to my best friend what my weight was. I started going to the gym 3-4 times a week, then I upped it to 5 days a week, and now I work out almost 7 days a week. Its hard for me to take a day off, I feel as though I truly need to get out there and walk at least 30 minutes, if I dont do anything else. Now that I have joined Spark People I have started counting my calories. The information on here is truly wonderful, the support is uplifting and the friends seem more like family. I am glad to call this home...........

Its that time of the month, I am feeling bloated and I am dragging, I did go and get my workout done this morning, I am not very hungry today, but I am feeling bloated. UGH..........I do my next weigh in on April 1st. So as long as the scale doesn't go up I will be okay. I am finally under 250 and I am not going to go back up that is the good thing. I am just going to keep the good work up and do what I am supposed to do and take it from there. I will be glad when this bloating goes down. I will just drink lots of water. Off to do homework..........
