Josie - It sounds like you have a good plan, and I know it may sound hard when you look at the amount you need to lose. Just break it up into 5 or 10 pound segments, and only focus on the current segment. It won't seem nearly as impossible.

Good Luck, and keep us updated in your progress. This is a great team.

Good morning! emoticon

I'm Josie.
I am hard-wired to be a prodigal. I tend to waste my health, wealth, time, and life on extravagant things, comforting myself too much, and also rationalizing what I do, thereby deceiving myself into remaining fat and unhealthy. These things will destroy me over time if I do not change.

That is why I am here.

I have been creating a plan for lasting success, and having an accountability partner as well as a fitbit are part of my plan. I have also created a binder that includes:
*menus
*fitness routines
*a calendar with food and fitness plans
*a rewards system (with graph paper to count the stars I earn each day)
*my goals (focused on being strong and healthy, not weight loss goals)
*an art journal to record my thoughts and rewards I receive in a creative way

I have a LOT of weight to lose, and I am planning on it taking me about 2.5 years. Just the time alone can be discouraging, but with a friend along for the journey, I think the time will pass more quickly (or so it will seem).

I am looking forward to participating in this team. I believe that together we can reach all our goals much easier than trying to do it on our own.

I'm happy to be here! emoticon

To thine own self be true.

Proverbs 3:5-6 New International Version (NIV)

5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
