Well, here I am again. Ha. I have lost and re-lost this weight so many times, I should be ashamed, but I'm not. I refuse to be! You wanna know why? Because every single time I've failed, I have learned at least one thing that helps me become more successful the next time I try!
This last set back put me 16 pounds heavier than a weight I'd been maintaining for six months. I am not ok with that so I am at it again. Prior to this "failure" I did not realize how important accountability is. ((Now I know.)) I have decided to try again. I figure what else could go wrong? What do I have to lose except my frustration, weight in pounds, and agony over the defeat? In fact, that sounds great!
Here's to try, try, trying again! I wish I was perfect, and I could've nailed this the first time (25 years ago), but I will not spend one more moment beating myself up about that. No, instead I will focus on what I can do right, and that is the reality that I can get up once more!
I am beginning my journey December 19th, 2012. I am in it for the long haul and am determined to make whatever changes necessary to regain control of my health.

My first goal is to track without cheating. To just get familiar with what I am eating. I also want to know more about why I eat and when so I'll be doing a lot of blogging. After those things are down, and the amount and type of food I am eating is down pat, I will incorporate excercise. I may wait until I am around 200 lbs. to start that up. I am 271 lbs.
I plan to eat mostly fruits and vegetables while concentrating on my protien intake to curb hunger. I have been doing this for years, but ate a lot of sweets along side it, so cutting those out for the most part. I really want to know why I overeat and face every battle, challenge and fear so a lot of soul searching will be incorporated. Exercise will come later. I have been very religious about it in the past. At 250 lbs. I have ran a mile in less than 15 minutes over the summer of 2012. Not too bad, but certainly not my goal. This time however, I am taking my time, as my real problem is with food.
I am a happily married mother of five. My children are 20, 17, 15, 4 and 1. I graduated college in 2007 with a BSBA and plan to use it before I am 50. (I hope, lol) For now, I am a stay at home mother working on me.
