I am re-starting my weight loss journey. I have been on many diets but have had no success. I guess that's because it wasn't something I could sustain for a lifetime. I will now no longer do anything unless I can do it for life. I plan to set the most amazing example for my daughter in regard to healthy body image, nutrition, fitness, relationship with God, etc. I know there will be days where I'm excited and nothing can stop me, but I also know there will be more days - especially starting out - that I really don't want to do anything. I will have to struggle with that and overcome it. I'm really looking forward to being the best, most wonderful possible version of myself - inside and out. I know a lot of my baggage will come from within due to my past, and I'll have to deal with that accordingly. But... this is the time... 2010 is my year for restoration. I'm embracing it. Who wants to join me?!

    WOW! 57 pounds down and counting. I'm motivated even more. My weigh-in is Saturday morning and I'm looking for 5 more pounds lost. I'll get on the bike trail today and work even harder, thanks to the progress that you've made. Keep working, and many more happy weigh-ins.

    Oh no, you totally *should* be stoked about 50+ pounds gone! I was beyond thrilled to reach that point. Don't ever demean your accomplishments because they may not be as "great" as somebody else's.

    Luckily-- for my weight loss--my inability to find a job has given me loads of time to work out like crazy. I've also reworked my eating habits and really practiced breaking out of my comfort zones regarding food.
