It's all about choice. Only I can make the choices that will let me be who I want to be. I have to make it happen, noone else. I have to make the right choices consitently. One choice at a time. For as long as it takes.

Pull myself into today and live mindfully in the moment. Hmm, that sounded very...Zen.

I looked and felt my best at age 20..when I weighed 150 lbs. I was a size 10 then and am motivated to get back the health and freedom I had back then.

Member Since: 1/9/2006

Fitness Minutes: 8,874

My Goals:
My goal is to get healthy while going from 279.6 lbs to 140 lbs by November 27, 2010 (My 42nd birthday).

This sets a goal to lose 1.7 lbs a week.

0%-280 on 02/15/09
5%-265 met 03/08/09
10%-251 met 06/11/09
No longer MORBIDLY Obese
190 - No longer Obese
158 - No Longer Overweight

My Program:
I'm trying a completely different approach than what I've used in the past.

I'm now eating "0 to 5." This means I only eat when I'm physically hungry, and I stop when i am satisfied...which is vastly different from "full." This is a major learning process as I'm re-discovering how my body works.

I'm able to eat whatever I want the most when I am hungry and stop when I am not hungry anymore.

Finding that point is a real challenge, as I've spent so many years overriding my body's natural signals.

It's all about that my body HAS the ability to know what to do and how to regulate itself.

Personal Information:
I'm an American living in Oz with my Australian hubby, our son, and 4 cats. I run my own pet sitting business.

My ultimate goal is to lose the weight, get off of the blood thinners and be able to ride horses again!!!

Other Information:
In March of 2007 I suffered massive, multiple pulmonary emboli (blood clots throughout my lungs) and went into caridac arrest.

It's been a long, slow recovery and I am so grateful I've been given another chance!

I'm *almost* better now, and some of the doctor's restrictions have been lifted so I can now start to make the BIG changes in my life.

    Hi~ Sorry it took me so long to get back to you! I ended up getting the nimbus 11's and I am in love.. especially since they are pink! Haha.. I love them so far and they have been a huge help!! Although the knee pain isn't quite gone, so I'm assuming something worse is going on at this point.. ah well, just a minor set back! Thank you again for the great advice though.. and another WoW player?! No way! What realm are you on?
