Yesterday was my first day with Sparkpeople and my first day trying to take my life and weight back in my hands and not in the hands of food. I made my ticker. I tracked my food and drank my water. I put down my weight as what I knew it last to be.... 245lb.

Well today I went to the doctors for shoulder pain. I got weighed and what I saw terrified me. 266lb. That is the heaviest I have ever weighed in my life. Granted I was wearing 4lb snow boots but still... 262lbs?! How have I gained almost 20lbs in a 2 months? This was discouraging because I have even further to go but motivating because I have all the more reason to work and fight for a healthy and fit life. On top of that, my doctor said I have bicep tendinitis in my right shoulder, a pulled muscle in my trap and possibly a torn rotator cuff. I am in pain. I am starting out my workouts with a damaged shoulder...

I want to wear cute clothes and fit in to calve high boots. I don't want to worry if a store is going to carry my pants size anymore. I want to NEED a new wardrobe and I want to make people double take. Not because I am gorgeous (which I really am), but because I have a NEW body. I can dream...

but it is time to stop wishing and start working!!

Encouragement will be needed but it's time for change.
