These are my home page intros over the years... I don't know how many times this is for me, but a new home page entry is due AGAIN. lets hope this is the last.
8/1/09 Well here we are again. Sometimes I wonder if my page will be deleted when I go to find it, but no, it's still here. That is the way I feel about my weight problem. It comes and it goes---coincidence? When I am here blogging and reading, it is easier to keep on track. I am starting fresh again, and taking it minute by minute. Each day, small goals until I can figure this out. All the pictures here are a reminder of how happy I was when I was at 180 lbs. Still overweight, but I felt so much better about myself.
February 2006 - First Intro
Hello Everyone! My name is Diana, and found out about this waaaay cool website through a friend. I really need it, support from friends and family is so important to me. I have always been "Husky" according to Sears -- (I remember those "Toughskins" jeans, Slim, Regular & Husky :) Anyway, I reached my breaking point on February 8, 2006 at a Rolling Stones show. It was an epiphany for me, a real life changer. I never want to feel that ashamed and embarrassed again. From now on, I want to feel proud, and happy, and most of all healthy. I have two beautiful little blessings, and want to set a good example for them, and be here for them as long as I can. Weight loss has always been an up and down struggle. I want to have the same feeling of joy that I used to get from eating a quart of Ben & Jerry's New York Super Fudge Chunk Ice Cream (almost 100 grams of fat for the whole quart) from taking back the reins of my destiny. That is my goal, God Help Me, I will do it for good this time!
2/8/07 A year later......I have learned so much this past year. Most importantly, I learned that I can do it! I am a much healthier person than the girl I mentioned above at the Stones show. I am doing what I knew all along I needed to do to become a better person--inside and out. SparkPeople has been such an important part of this journey which I will be on for the rest of my life.... The women I have met are angels. LaLa has been my rock that I lean on when times get tough----Thank you Sister...I love you to pieces!! And a BIG thank you to all of my Sparklin' Sparkettes, you make it all easier, and I wouldn't want to do it without you guys!! XOXO
1/17/08 Wow, this is Hard. Really Hard. As much as I know about this disorder, it still won. I am restarting, I will take baby steps to live each moment at a time, each challenge turned to a victory. I want this really bad. I want to learn how to change my life for good. I need to or I will be a DIABETIC, or have a STROKE, or have a HEART ATTACK or ALL OF THE ABOVE. Thats reality.
I am worth it.
I can do it.
Thank Goodness for this website.
