Hey my name is Theresa. I was 394 at my very highest. I lost some weight because I had a colostomy tube put in because of an infected gall bladder. I am now about 364. I like the "Done being the fat girl" team because that is sooo me. I am always the girl that could be a bike... or a sofa, or any other non-sexual entity. I never have positive attention on me, usually only people making jokes about my very large size. When I was married, I didn't care. But now I realize that there were many very unhealthy things about how I was living during the time of my marriage. I have been working very hard to watch what I eat. My doctor suggestions between 45-50 fat grams a day. DOES THAT EVER PUT THINGS INTO PERSPECTIVE! Everything is about math to me now. Like for instance, if I am not mistaken, there are 12 grams of fat in one serving of regular ranch dressing. I would use like 4-5 servings before my doctor told me this!!!! I may eat more food than I should right now, but at least it is more healthy! I want to do this for a lot of reasons.
1. My health... ( my doctor said this gall bladder issue was only the beginning of so many more worse things to come.)
2. My nieces... I love them and I wish I had the energy to keep up with them... Now, If I want to spend time with my nieces, its doing stuff like puzzles, reading books... watching movies... going for car rides..
3. Because I want to FEEL pretty. I always told my friends how pretty they looked, but never got any compliments back. Now that gastric bypass may have been in the process, my friends are almost feeling threatened. (Like they want me to be the fat one.)
4.Because I want to gain control on this part of my life!

I could go on and on, but when I have a really bad day and forget why I am drinking water instead of a large iced moca from McDonalds, I will remember why this is so important to me!



I am looking to make friends who are in the same boat I am. I really want to meet people my size to see if we are going through the same things, and to see how others deal with their issues. (BUT I really want to meet anyone who is looking for a friend!!)

Fitness Minutes: 75

My Goals:
Well mostly to get healthy. I would like to lose a lot of weight, but i have been battling food for years. I finally have an illness that is preventing me from eating like I used to, so I am on a special diet. I have lost some weight, and am trying to take advantage of the situation, and get some more weight gone, while I can. I would love to lose about 146 pounds by christmas day 2011. I am hoping to get gastric bypass surgery, but if I can't this goal seems very realistic. it equals to about 1.6 pounds a week.


My Program:
Right now, because of the extreme heat, I haven't been doing much, I don't want to overheat! I have had a special procedure done, and to avoid getting it infected, I try the best I can to avoid sweating. I have opted to drink water/gatorade/kool-aid versus soda. I am a soda hound hehe...



Personal Information:
I don't really have anything personal to share that I haven't already covered here hehe

    "Even if the challenges are immense and the obstacles are many, step forward and live the life you choose to live. Your dreams are worth every effort.
    Even if you get knocked down again and again, get right back up and get going. With enough persistence, any goal is within your reach.
    Even if you can’t see all the way to the end of the road, go ahead and take the first step. Each time you make some progress, you’ll find new ways to make even more.
    Even if your results fall short of your expectations, keep making the effort. Each new day brings you more experience, wisdom and effectiveness.
    Even if you’ve been deeply disappointed in the past, focus on the positive possibilities. For your future is what you choose to make it now."

    "I will persist until I succeed. Always will I take another step.
    If that is of no avail I will take another, and yet another.
    In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult.... I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking."

    Happy Birthday to You!!

    Born today, October 6, you look at the world through a lens of your own creation -- one that allows you to see life as more colorful, vibrant and satisfying than most of your peers. Indeed, your positive view of the world is so detailed that you should be able to remake the world, in small ways that matter only to you, to match your impression of it. And this, in turn, is likely to make you the happiest person you know. Certainly, you are not immune from the kinds of shocks and heartaches that plague the world's inhabitants -- but you can recover from them faster than most.

    You are quick to spot new opportunities, and you are never afraid to drop what you are doing in order to pursue a new goal -- confident that when the time comes you will be able to pick right back up where you left off. You are a creative problem-solver -- for yourself and for others.

    Today’s Libra Horoscope: You're likely to follow in another's footsteps -- but you can surely add your own personal spin to the proceedings.

    You share a birthday with: Elisabeth Shue, actress; Britt Ekland, actress; Carole Lombard, actress; George Westinghouse, developer of AC electric power.

    Hope your day is wonderful!

    "Time always moves forward whether you move forward or not. Your most effective strategy is to make use of each moment as soon as it arrives. There's no end to what you can accomplish if you'll just go ahead and get going. Now is what you have, so make now your time to begin."

    Just stopping by from Rootin' for Ruby with a little motivation and encouragement! Did you know that there are only FIVE days left until Spring? Why not set yourself a mini goal that you can reach in the next 5 days?
