4/26/10-
I have got to get a handle on my eating. It seems like I'm either in an eating or non-eating phase...right now it is the eating phase!I've lost 55 lbs, but lately have gained back 3 -4 lbs because of my poor eating. I am making a committment right here, right now to solve my eating issues.
I have always been overweight, I'd lose weight, but it would always creep back on. I then came to a point where I just gave up and would eat anything I wanted ALL THE TIME! I have tried every diet at one time or another, oh I would lose weight, but I always gained it back and then some!
I want to be a healthy, happy person. I want to take away the power that food has over me!
I have completed the first phase of my new life - I won the "biggest loser" contest at my office. I lost 24 lbs which was 11.67% of my total starting weight.

I now believe I can lose the weight and all those thoughts about not being able to do it were just rationalizations so I didn't do it.

5/31/09* I am struggling now, it is hard to resist temptation, while I was in the contest it was easy - now I have to be more vigilant in tracking what I am eating.

7/15/09 - 175 lbs! I've posted a new picture of me, I've lost 40 lbs so far!!! I really never thought I could do it, but I have. Just looking at my picture I have renewed motivation...I will happily continue on this path on my journey through life.
