It's time to stop
to stop eating fast food
to stop buying junk food
to stop thinking about food
to stop treating food like it's my best friend in the whole wide world
to stop running to food because I'm bored or just because I want to eat
to stop dwelling on the past and all the mistakes I've made
to make a choice
and I've got two choices:
1) I can stay this way, keep gaining weight and feeling even worse about myself, hoping and waiting for something to happen or waiting for that 'aha' moment
2) I can make that change. A healthy lifestyle change. One that requires patience, perseverance, effort, time, planning, purpose, and sacrifice. A choice that seems so insurmountable, hard and unattainable at the moment.
But if I stay stuck, stuck in this place and in this state of mind for the rest of my life, then what will I learn?
How will I grow?
How will I make a difference?
How will I know what's out there for me if I don't take that first step, if I don't get out there, if I don't even try?
It's time to stop saying and start doing-for real.

If you're ever feeling low on motivation and need a pick me up, success stories are a good way to go!
I love The Biggest Loser show and on their website they have a Viewer Weight Loss gallery
that's the link, scroll down and you'll see many people who've lost all kinds of weight!
I was looking through it one day and a guy's particular weight loss story stood out. He said:
"The journey may be long but you'll never get there without that first step!"
~Cecil, who lost over 500 pounds in under 4 years- how cool and inspiring is that?!
Also my friend recently posted a facebook status and she said:
"If we've gotta start somewhere why not here? If we've gotta start sometime why not now?"
I hope these quotes inspire you to continue on your journeys right now!

My grandpa is on Weight Watchers (it does work! he's lost 40 pounds so far :)
and he uses these 3 month tracker notebooks and it contains a lot of motivational tips and some recipes, it's a good resource.
Right now I'm currently looking through the book, trying to find the quote that really stood out to me, but I'm noticing that they have a lot of great things to say!
So maybe I'll post a new one every week!
Ok I found the quote that I love, here it is:
Take this one day, or even one meal, at a time.
Thinking too far ahead can make you feel overwhelmed and defeated.
Maybe that's my problem, is that I'm thinking too much and too far ahead that I can't even look at the moment because I'm already thinking about tomorrow!
So this whole weight loss journey needs to be taken one step at a time!

This picture was taken on July 14,2012 around 208 pounds
My 'before' picture, this was during my weight loss
And this is what I look like now
It's kind of scary to post this picture but heck why not?
And it's kind of reverse, this should be my before picture!
Well I guess it is now...
it was taken on January 14, 2013 at 234 pounds
Ok, these pictures aren't of the best quality-they were taken with my computer's webcam, lol!
