Here I go.....again....

Saturday, June 12, 2010

Well, my last attempt at losing weight I did very well. I lost a total of 65 lbs! Gained most of it back...but...the positive? I am on the shedding side again. I joined Weight Watchers on February 16, 2010 with a bit of the feeling that I can do this and that nothing is going to stand in my way. Somehow, it seems easier this time. I have lost 31 lbs and with 2 more lbs I will have reached 10% lost of my starting weight this time. I feel stronger now than I did before and I realize, that will power has little to with having control over my eating. It's the knowledge and acceptance that food no longer controls my life. If I want to eat something I eat it...even if it is too much for that day. And, because I do this, food no longer controls me and I find myself rarely if ever binging. I have only "binged" two maybe three times since I started my journey again, and the last time I was able to stop myself from it getting too out of control. I am proud of myself and I know that I can do this. The proof is the barely touched cake (my fav) that is laying dormant in the freezer. And the mounds of easter candy (my second fav) that is laying stacked in the cupboard. I will succeed this time, I know it.

8 months and still going strong!

Monday, September 22, 2008

I can't believe it has been 8 months since I made the decision to get a gym membership and start working out. It seems just like yesterday but here I am today over 50 lbs lighter and so much healthier. I can do things now I could only dream about doing before. And I am do so looking forward to going sledding with my daughter this winter. It means so much to me to know that I will be able to climb back up the hill after sledding down. My life has changed so much and I am so grateful. It has been hard but I have never given up and I never will give up. This fight is the hardest fight I have ever fought. But I will fight with all that I have and all that I am and I will win. I will survive!!

My Plateau is finally broken!!!

Monday, September 08, 2008

After 2 months of the scale not moving or moving up and down one pound a week, the scale is finally going down. This is my second weigh in that I lost weight which is a good thing. I am so happy and excited. It can be sooooo depressing looking at the scale and not seeing the weight come off. But I stuck with it and am so glad I did. Its good to see myself moving further and further away from the 300 pound mark! Woohoo!!!!
