Life is random, so am I.

So here I am again, trying to lose weight. I haven't been steadily working at it like I should be but I am making much better choices than I had been. I'm actually only 13 pounds off of my first major goal. I cannot believe I'm actually getting close. I hope I don't sabotage myself. I'm really bad about that. I get close and then lose it. I'm going to make a real effort to start putting my food back in again. I can't wait until it starts getting cooler, the apartments have totally redone the ...
So here I am again, trying to lose weight. I haven't been steadily working at it like I should be but I am making much better choices than I had been. I'm actually only 13 pounds off of my first major goal. I cannot believe I'm actually getting close. I hope I don't sabotage myself. I'm really bad about that. I get close and then lose it. I'm going to make a real effort to start putting my food back in again. I can't wait until it starts getting cooler, the apartments have totally redone the tennis courts and I cannot wait to start playing again!:)

I've never been a little girl. I can remember going on the cabbage soup diet when I was 13 (I still can't imagine making my daughter eat only soup for 3 weeks!). I was a size 16 when I got married and then had 3 babies within 4 years and kept gaining from there. I started about 9 years ago at an all time high of 243. When I started sparkpeople I was down to 223 and had been stuck there for about a year. With sparkpeople, I'd gotten over that plateau and started losing it again when I was diagnosed with diabetes type 2 . Then for some crazy reason, stopped losing and basically stopped caring. I got content and lazy and gained some back. Not sure what I did that got the weight going in the right direction again but I'm sure not going to complain.lol

I'm 41, married to a wonderful man for almost 20 years and a mother of 3 incredible children that I am crazy about. I am a Kindergarten teacher and am very passionate about animals and the environment. My friends say I have my own personal zoo here at home. I just say they're lucky I don't live out in the country where I could really have all the animals I want.lol

That is so amazing that someone you know will be on the show. The amount of weight they had to lose in 90 days was crazy! But I guess we also have to consider that the more you weigh, the more weight you drop. I can't wait to see your friend's episode!
