I changed my background so I can keep my eye on the prize!!!!

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: 4/16/11-I'm down 16 lbs and I weigh in again Monday. Hopefully I'll be down some more. I've realized in these last couple of weeks that not only do I have to change the way I eat (and what I eat), I have to completely change the way I LIVE! I can't expect to lose weight ...

Update: 4/16/11-I'm down 16 lbs and I weigh in again Monday. Hopefully I'll be down some more. I've realized in these last couple of weeks that not only do I have to change the way I eat (and what I eat), I have to completely change the way I LIVE! I can't expect to lose weight and keep it off for good if all I do is follow another diet that I'll end up hating and don't add daily exercise, no matter how much I don't want to do it. This isn't a perfect world where all you have to do is sit on your butt and THINK about exercise and the inches melt off. lol I actually have to MOVE!!! Judging from reading others' pages and posts, I'm assuming that at some point, I'll learn to like exercise. I'm not there yet, but I do have to say, I hate it less than I used to. I don't know what the difference is this time, but I honestly feel that this is it. This is for real this time. Somehow, something in my brain snapped and I FEEL like this is for life now. Every time I've "dieted" before, all I ever did was think about food. It consumed my every waking moment. Its different this time. I can't explain it, but its very exciting! I don't feel obsessed about food this time. Yet another reason I think its for real this time.

Update: July 4, 2011-I made it past 50 pounds lost! 3 months and 1 week into Spark!!! My birthday is December 17th, so I'd like to be as close to 100 pounds down as I can get by then!

Update: January 12, 2012-Due to a 4 months "break" from September to January, I not only didn't hit 100 down by my birthday, but I also managed to gain 10 back. :( FYI-a break from exercise and healthy eating is NOT a break, its a lazy spell and should be avoided at all cost! lol

Personal Information:
I'm a 41 year old mom of two. I've always been big, but big turned into really big. :P Its time to change that! Not only do I need to be smaller, I need to be healthier! Whatever weight my body naturally decides is the ideal weight for me, I'm fine with. As long as I have energy, lower my cholesterol, and I'm healthy, that's all I can ask for.
Oh...and a WAIST! lol

Pretty much same thing for me. I did well before the wedding but now I'm back to where I started. So yeah, starting over because now I need to focus on Hawaii in November and then Italy next summer! And you know, general health and all of that nonsense. :p

Glad to hear from you!

emoticon "BEAUTIFUL WOMAN AWARD" emoticon

emoticon You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award!! emoticon

Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out!

emoticon Again, Congratulations Beautiful! emoticon

Hey you! Thanks for checking in with me, I appreciate it. I have definitely lost some momentum, partially due to the amount of traveling I've been doing for work and partially just from letting things go. Time to refocus and change things up! I hope you're doing well!
