Hi! I need to lose a lot of weight, and wanting some encouragement. It's going to be a long road to where i want to be. But i'm going to make it.

I'm changing my attitude towards this whole losing weight. I've been disappointed of going up and down on my weight. And not sticking with anything. And I'm the only one who can change that. And today I have decided that I'm changing it. I'm going to mess up sometimes, but I'm not going to let one mess up change what I need to do. If I don't lose the weight, I won't be able to have a healthy life with my hubby.

I also want to look good, and be the sexy wife for my husband. I also want to get to a healthy weight so that we are able to start a family. I sometimes do have bad days, but I get myself right, and get back on track. I aim everyday to stay within my calorie range. I eat more veggies, and fruits now more than I ever have. I do eat things that are "unhealthy" but I do it in portion. I have learned that I feel so much better when I do my exercise in the morning before work. I aim to drink about a gallon of water a day. I have cut down my pop intake, but I do sometimes have pop. When I do have pop I try drink Diet pop, but sometimes I do drink regular pop.

I have support of my family and hubby and friends. I don't let people who are HATERS in my life know that I am trying to lose weight because they would only watch and critic what I am doing and eating. They can figure it out when they see the weight loss from me.

Since September 2011 I have lost 21lbs!! And plan on losing more and more each month. I would like to lose about 10 to 15lbs a month. But am happy when I lose any kind of weight.

January 2016 - Need to get more weight down!! I have lost a total of 70 lbs from my highest weight. But still need to lose more. I have to be able to balance: work, studying for some licenses for work, working out, having a social life, and regular housework. I plan on doing that. This year, I am trying to do a monthly challenge.
January is a beginner squat challenge.
February is a Ab challenge.

I have a reward system set for myself on excel to give myself money everytime I do what I need to do. I have it set up for the whole year so all I have to do is input my results. I also am using Spark to track my food and exercise.

Update: August 10, 2018:
Haven't really lost any weight and have failed to get on a plan.
My motivation to do this is to get off insulin and the diabetic medicine I am currently on. I need to set a plan and do it.
