I've been overweight all my life. Last week I hit an all-time high. I'm determined to get this under control before it kills me! Not to mention, my toes look like sausages and that's gotta change! lol
Update: June 1, 2016 - I did it! I reached the 100 lb mark! With today's weigh-in of 210.8, I'm officially down 101.2 lbs!!! It's been hard to stay on track, especially with all my foot issues, but regardless how slow it was (maybe it just felt slow to me because of the unusual amount of yo-yoing), I made it! Now on to Onederland! June 8th is the start of my summer challenge and I'm saying it right now, for all the world to see, I WILL make it to 199 during this challenge!!! I've got 11 weeks from today to lose 11.8 pounds. That's MORE than doable!!!
Update: November 17, 2015-I've been going through a lot of the "it'll be ok, I'll eat a healthy dinner" moments. Or "I'll just eat what I want this weekend and start Monday." I KNOW its the wrong attitude to have, but the self-doubt and inner demon takes over and I just feel powerless.
One thing I've noticed, larger than life, as I've gained back these 60 lbs, is just how closely my weight is tied to my emotions! I've never really thought I was an emotional eater before, but I am. And it's not just the eating, it's the depression and the absolute lack of will to even get up off my butt and MOVE!
So I'm starting over. I'm going to take baby steps to get back where I need to be. I know I have my short-term goals set starting at 5% loss, but realistically, my first goal is 1%, then 2, then 3. And even logging streaks on here, and tracking streaks. And 10 minutes of movement a day, minimum. I WILL get back to my happy place!

Having a blast with the snowball fight!
I just noticed--your Christmas ornament dragon is a crested gecko! He looks just like our little pocket dragon, Ziggy! I have a picture of him in my gallery, if you're curious. He is really, really cute. He is grey to yellow when calm, but turns bright orange with an olive stripe down his back when he gets excited!

Splat! You have been hit with a snowball.
You can dodge it by doing deep breathing for 1 minute and visualizing your goal being accomplished.
This is fun!
