I want to be a better me and frankly I am tired of hearing "you have a pretty face".

Reward System:

1 week consistency: Pedicure
2 week consistency: watch
3 week consistency: earrings
4 week consistency: signature perfume
5 week consistency: an outfit that makes me feel sexy
6 week consistency: high heels
7 week consistency: necklace
8 week consistency: pedicure
9 week consistency: anklet
10 week consistency: jewelry
11 week consistency: new outfit
12 week consistency: tooth

I am hoping that through this journey I will gain self confidence. This is something that I am currently lacking and I know that losing the weight is only part of the battle. So I am hoping that each day as I grow more physically fit, I become more mentally fit as well.

Personal Information:
I have made many changes within the past few months. Changes that I hope will last me a lifetime. I am trying to change my eating habits to things I can work with. Which, for me, means not cutting out what I eat everyday just cutting down on the amount and finding healthier versions of it. It is my belief that I have to retrain my body and my taste buds to crave better things. Coming where I am from, it is impossible to give up everything altogether. So, hopefully eating less of it will help keep me on track. If not, I will reamp along the way.

Other Information:
I turned 30 and knew I could not live the rest of my life like this. I have to get healthy. There could be a lot of health problems if I remain unhealthy. I have been told numerous times that I am borderline diabetic. I need to get this right. I want to get this right. This time next year, I hope to have pictures of me on a beach on vacation in a bikini.

    Hey there! Thanks for stopping by! I wanted to wish you all the best on your healthful journey, I am positive that you will be successful. In the mean time I'm doing my best to keep getting these miles in. Did 4 miles this weekend, if I can keep that up until the end, I should be good to go! Have a good week!

    Thank you for your kind comment on my "50 lbs" blog - I am glad you could relate. Fighting obesity can be kind of lonely which is why I love Sparkpeople so much. PS That beautiful man staring at me from your page is very distracting...... emoticon

    I'm looking for a buddy as well. Where did you get that avatar? I need to get something like that for motivation as well.
