Hi my name is Lisa. I am 38 years old and have already lost 70 pounds and still have 64 to lose. I need motivation. I have been at a stand still for a while now and have not been making good food choices and would like to do better with the help of some friends.

11/16/08: will start working harder toward my goals. Have made 10 pound goals and plan to have them completed in 6 months.

11/28/08: I have made a decision that i have to take control of my llife. I haven't been very much in control of my eating lately. I have been eating withing my calorie range but, i have found myself getting up in the night and eating and not even thinking about what i am eating THIS IS MY LIFE AND MY CHANCE TO FINALLY DO THIS AND I AM GOING TO.

1/4/09: I have 385 more days til I turn 40 and I haven't been doing very well for about 3 days and am really mad at myself about it. I DO NOT WANT TO BE FAT ANY MORE IN MY LIFE. I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR IT AND IT DOESN'T FIT IN TO WHO I AM.

1/24/09: Today I am 39, i have exactly 365 days until I am 40 and I need to kick it up and buckle down. I am my own woman and no one can hold me down........ I am going to achieve my goals this year and no on is going to sabatage me or keep me from doing so.
************************BRING IT ON*******************************

2/5/09: Decided to go VEGAN. Didn't really have anything to do with it being more healthy. Watched a video that I shouldn't have and was disgusted with what I saw on it so... long story short.. no meat, eggs or dairy for me.. My husband thinks that I am crazy and has given me 5 months until I snap... We will see.. sounds like a challenge to me... I love a challenge... I just keep seeing the images that I saw on my monitor in my mind everytime I thing about it.. Oh well.. Have lost 7 pounds.. I guess it works..

10/15/06: I need to get back into my weight loss. I have been horrible when it comes to nutrition. I have been eating all sorts of stuff that has been awfull. I need to take myself seriously and quit making bad decisions when it comes to my body.
The person i see in the mirror is not me...
I am trapped inside her...
I scream at her to let me out...
But she keeps me prisoner...
What is she scared of...
Is she a wall i have put up...
Then why can't I break thru...
Is she a protector...
Keeping me from getting hurt...
Even though she is hurting me everday...
I don't know this person...
The eyes are the same...
But the body is not mine...
I need to break free...
I need to be free of her...


What I want.........
****I want to look in a full lenght mirror and not want to turn away*
***I want to turn heads anywhere************************
****I want to be able to run****************************
****I want to surf once**************************
****I want to wear a two piece swimsuit, doesn't have to be a bikini, tankini would do just fine*****************************
****I want not to "jiggle" when I am moving in any direction***********
****I want to go snowmobiling**********
****I want to be a good example for my children*******
****I want to be a good wife**************
****I want to go to the Carribean*****************
****I want to go to Mexico***********************
****I want to wear victorias secret underwear*****
****I want to wear my daughters clothes******
(much to her horror LOL)
****I want to wear high heels out dancing one night***
****I want to dance on the beach in the moonlight with the love of my life
****I want to get a massage on the beach like those Sandals commercials

I will add more as i discover more things that I want.................

1/24/10: I am now 40..... and have gained back 20 pounds and it pisses me off.... I have to make sure that I keep on track... 40 is going to be the best year of my life....

2/27/12..... 42 years old now... still overweight and i hate it... have started going to a dr for it now... i am going to lose this weight... my bestie is doing this with me and I will succeed. I have lost 15 pound and am down to 260. (started at 275 my heaviest ever) will not be like that again..
