Welcome!! A great tool here is the nutrition tracker. It is very helpful for seeing how many calories are in the foods we eat.

Good for you Synergy! It takes a lot of courage to accept responsibility. Make sure you are your best cheerleader as well. Don't be to hard on yourself, but it is important to constantly ask ourselves how we got to where we are and how we can get out of our comfort zone, so we can push ourselves to do things we haven't been doing. I am doing this myself. Challenging myself to get outside my comfort zone at least a couple times a day. I think this will help me boost my self confidence and push me towards my goals.

Congrats on your life changing decision!

Something hit me recently when I saw the pictures that were taken during Halloween!!! I looked at the pictures and I almost cried..ok...I actually did cry!! I came face to face with the person I have become...that obese person who I have been denying existed for the past 2 years!!!

See, about 3 years ago, I was at my prime!!! I was healthy, happy, beautiful, and confident!!! I had a positive aura that my friends commented on!!! My friends loved being around me!!! I was a breath of fresh air! I lived life to the fullest! I was adventurous! I was daring! I loved life and I embraced it! I saw the good in everything and everyone!! I loved that person...I loved ME!!

Fast track a coupleof years later and you get the opposite. I moved about 3 or 4 years ago and starting living a little differently. A few pounds packed on and then another and another and now, a few years later, I have doubled my weight!!! I went from 150 lbs to nearly 300 lbs!!! Sad, I know but fortunately, I CAN do something about it!!

Now, don't get me wrong! This is not an 'oh pity me' blog!! This is a blog to admit what I have been denying and a blog of acceptance. This is a 'take charge' blog and a blog to declare that I have accepted the person I am right now. I remember what it was like when I was healthy, happy, positive, energetic, and outgoing! I know that person still exists within me and is wanting to live again!!!

Therefore, I, Synergy 2011, promise to do everything in my power to make the necessary changes to live the life that I want to live. I will work hard to achieve my mini-goals and make my dreams reality. I will love the person I am now and know that I doing everything in my power to live again. I will eat healthy, exercise, think positively, and LIVE!!! My days of existing are over!!!

I WANT TO LIVE!!!

So there you have it!!! From now on, no more denial just ACTION to change who I am and to LIVE once again!!
