Well, I have chosen a phoenix to represent a "weight lose" re-birth. I use to be very average in size (not thin but not fat, a solid size 8) and completely happy with myself. I think I was around 160.
One thing lead to another, I met my husband (gained weight (about 10 pounds)), got engaged (gained more weight (another 15)), got married (gained even more (another 15)), got pregnant - GAINED 80 POUNDS at the height of my pregnancy (270pounds)! Yikes!!!
I tried nutrisystem (wasted money lost 5 pounds & gained 7 in the end), tried curves (not a fan), tried a few fad diets (did ok, but gained it all back).
As of today, I weigh in at 214. Time to get back in control of my eating, I am tired of changing what I need/want for those around me, particularly my husband. He is my Saboteur, we've had countless fights over him sabotaging my diets - before this over & over...and those ALWAYS ended in me giving in. He constantly derails all my efforts, part of me thinks he's insecure for whatever reason if I lose weight & get to my goal - that I'll leave him...maybe I will....maybe I won't....and maybe he needs to get his head out of his butt and think that maybe I want this for me!
Case in point. I told him I was to be starting my diet Jan 1 - on Jan 1 ----he says let's got to dinosaur bbq for lunch. I said no, so he sat downstairs sulking, Dinosaur for dinner - no - sulking again! Sunday....Dinosaur for lunch ---NO GO BY YOURSELF! Dinosaur for dinner? NO!!!!! Did he go, nope sulking again! Argh! I am so frustrated, and he sees he's doing nothing wrong.

IT'S TIME FOR ME AND I WILL NO LONGER ALLOW OTHERS TO SET MY DESTINY!I look forward to rising up and shedding more weight – restoring myself.

    Hey there!

    I am one of you admns for the May 18-24 class. Isn't it fun to break through a certain number? I love it!

    Do you live in Albany NY? (I ask because there is an Albany, GA down here in da' south). I saw that your husband was going to Lake of our favorite places! My SIL owns Twin Birches at Lake George. Have you ever been there?

    Hope you have a great weekend!

    Colet73, Wow you were so nice to leave a note on my sparkpage and I have not been reading them, am I bad! You are doing awesome, congratulations! I am really enjoying getting my fingernails dirty lately! Last year I put in two climbing "bareroot" roses and this year there are over 100 buds and flowers on it. I was growing a little hideaway for my grandsons with sunflowers and tonight the mommy and baby rabbit ate half of them! grrrrrr emoticon Linda
