Its funny because I was reading some of my comments today, and I just happened to start thinking of how the people we hang with make a difference on the things we do, or what we try to accomplish out of life, and right now I feel as though my weight loss is such a big issue that I am trying to accomplish, that I don't have room for anything else. I guess I am working so hard on me that I don't want to fail or back track, I have to stay focused. My friends here are so informative and helpful that its contagious. LOL. I gotta do me, but help out you at the same time.

I got some pearls yesterday, they were from someone at the gym, and it felt so good to hear. The lady came up to me and said I just want to let you know I admire your motivation, you come and workout everyday, You are slimming down really good. then she asked me do I come on sat & sun too, I told her no, I hit the track on those days. It felt good to hear the compliment. I have already decided this is for life. I am not going to stop, I am just working to get to my goal and then maintenance phase for life

I am sitting here thinking about 281 and focusing on 181. I am asking myself what makes this time different.I have tried many times before to lose weight only to fail and gain more weight that is how I got to 281. My turning point came and I had, had enough, I knew that it was taking a toll on my body and I was no where near the girl I used to be. I felt uncomfortable, and just unattractive although I pretended to be okay. I am so glad that the scale is moving in my favor and I can't wait to make my goal, but the question still remains, what makes this time different??? I will tell you, I have been working out since July 06, and now I can't go without exercise, if I do, I feel so unproductive that it is like a missing part of me. It is a stress reliever, it makes me feel good to know that I am taking care of my body, it has taken away the rusty bones (seems like arthritis) hurting feet, indigestion, constant headaches. I was thinking to myself wow I can get out of the bed and not feel like my body stiffened up during the night anymore, that was because of my weight. Its funny how I notice the little things.

Okay, I finally bought some new workout clothes because the ones I had, I have been working out in when I was 281, LOL, they are so saggy that it is a shame, I went home for spring break and I know that if I had put those pants on to work out in, my mom and best friend would have died on the spot laughing, I am going to step up my game and go to the gym looking nice for now on. My pants were sagging in the booty, the shirt was too big, I was wearing a size 22/24 when I need a 16/18 now. Its crazy. I probably looked like a ragamuffin. I probably could have gotten a makeover, its a surprise they didn't call 911 on me.
