My name is Lyssa (pronounced Liss-Ah, not Lisa), and I'm from Milton, ON (which is Canada). I'm 30, and I'm married to a fantastic guy named Andy, or Drew, or Andrew, or any other variation of his name, or sometimes Pookie. Or sometimes other names that probably aren't so nice.

I grew up watching both of my parents battle with their weight, and test out every diet out there.
When I got married a few years ago, I was devastated when the pictures came in - who the hell was this person? Certainly that couldn't have been me!? Sh*t... Chick was fat...
And now as we discuss having kids, I've made the decision that I really don't want my kids going through the same things I did. I don't want them hating food, worried that my genetic defects will cause them to turn out like me... I am so worried about being the mom on Glee (the lunch lady one)....
So now, it begins.....

My Goals:
So, this was what my goal section originally read: My biggest goal is to be able to train to participate in the Ride To Conquer Cancer. I, like so many people, have lost several loved ones to cancer, as well as have both friends and family who have successfully fought the disease, so more then anything, I would love to be able to do something to make a difference....
As of today though, I'd take walking up the stairs and not feeling winded. To be able to wear pants and not worry about the dreaded "muffin top". And really, yeah, the good ol' cliche, to actually be healthy for once in my life....

My Program:
My theory is very few people read this side bar right? Hopeful, but unlikely.
I'm also hoping that this will keep me a little accountable putting it all out there - and yes, this sucks.
November 27, 2012 - Reset... 235.
FML comes to mind.
