Got to be Fit!

365 Days with the 330 Pound Woman is gone! I'm now Got to be Fit!!! I began this journey 01/01/2010 and was at my all time high at 330 pounds. I lost 68lbs over six months, keep it off for three months, and rapidly regained it in 3 months and then some. I spiraled out of control and on 01/01/2013 I found myself at 351 pounds.

With the most basic chores being taxing on my 5'3" 351lb body, I finally made a commitment to improve my life. I constantly worried if chairs would support ...
365 Days with the 330 Pound Woman is gone! I'm now Got to be Fit!!! I began this journey 01/01/2010 and was at my all time high at 330 pounds. I lost 68lbs over six months, keep it off for three months, and rapidly regained it in 3 months and then some. I spiraled out of control and on 01/01/2013 I found myself at 351 pounds.

With the most basic chores being taxing on my 5'3" 351lb body, I finally made a commitment to improve my life. I constantly worried if chairs would support my weight or tried to estimate if I could fit in certain spaces. In 2012 I went to Hawaii with my son and our flight was nearly unbearable due to my size. I was mortified that the airlines may want to charge me for two seats because if my size and I was extremely embarrassed because I couldn't fit in one if the bathrooms on the flight. At that time I was at about 343lbs. Like usual, I beat myself up and ultimately gained 8 additional pounds because I turned to food.

I made extremely poor food choices and never exercised because i enjoyed laying on the couch, watching TV, and EATING! Now I exercise once or twice a day and find it difficult to sit around and watch TV.

I decided to change my spark page name because I'm not that 330 or 351lb woman anymore. I'm a new woman and I have "Got to be Fit!"

PREVIOUS INTRO (01/01/2010)
I'm 34, 5'3" and weigh in at 330 pounds. I'd love to say I don't know how this happened but I do. As an emotional eater, food is my friend and my worst enemy. I have not always been overweight but somewhere along the way, I found myself turning to food to cope with everyday hustle and bustle, stress, depression or to celebrate happiness. I can no longer hide behind food nor can I stand to watch myself gain another pound. I am very fortunate not to have diabetes, high cholesterol or blood pressure. I realize I am playing Russian Roulette with my health, it's time to break the cycle. Join me over the next 365 days as I work towards changing my relationship with food. I've tried many times and have failed, I hope with my Blog I will become more accountable. I will post things about exercise(or lack there of), food(binges included) and life as I know it. I will do my best not to bore you... my journey will begin on January 1, 2010. Lets enjoy the year together! Cheers to discovering health, mental well being, overcoming obesity and my addiction of food.

10/28/2010 - I've gained 15 pounds in about 7 weeks. I just can't seem to find the balance between working full time, keeping house, being Mom and traveling for work. I gotta find my way back. I am having a hard time fitting in my smaller clothes and I am just tired. I need strength and encouragement. I am NOT ready to throw in the flag but I am binging like I am. This journey continues.

I am having fun in the kitchen cooking healthy foods, I love trying alternatives and checking out calorie comparisons ... healthy -vs- unhealthy, caloric and fat differences just blow me away. I can't believe the things I used to put in my mouth daily!

You are doing great. I was on spark people when you started originally and I fell off the wagon so to speak and of course gained the weight back (and then some). Today my hubby and I decided that this is it and we need to go back to doing the spark thing. I find your page and posts very motivational.
