Me at Griffith Observatory, Spring Break '10.
My amazing parents. My dad was always concerned about my weight, and I feel him with me as I make progress. I miss him every day.
I've wasted a lot of time being unhappy with myself and missed out on a lot of opportunities, and I'm sick of it. So it's time to really get serious about this and change my life so I can start living it.
To get to a body where I feel comfortable and confidant, where I can shop with ease and enjoy being active.
Tracking calories, carbs, fats, protein, and fiber. Walk, dance, and stationary bike for cardio, WiiFit, and Spark strength exercises. Eat in moderation, and focus on whole foods, organic when possible.
I've been heavy all my life, and have finally completely committed myself to do something about it. I want to look on the outside how I feel on the inside. I want to like myself so I can accept someone else liking me too. I want to sit in a plane seat without feeling like a sardine.
"Be not the slave of your own past. Plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep and swim far, so you shall come back with self-respect, with new power, with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Hey there! How are things going? I am back on track so far for 1.5 days and I already feel better. Why can't we all just stay on track all the time and feel great ALL THE TIME. Hopefully you're doing well! :)

Oh it's going! I kicked butt at the gym today and my eating was right on track for a day. Although I did under my calories for the day at least it wasn't an over day for once. I have the next two days off as break days from work so I'm going to try really hard not to mess anything up. How are things with you? I read that you are all moved. Hopefully avoiding mom's pantry...?

How have you been? I was away for the weekend on a work trip and I didn't visit a gym at all. I did push around a wheelchair for one of my ladies, but I didn't watch what I ate at all. We had to take the ladies out to eat just about everyday. I plan on getting back into the gym tomorrow after work. That's when I normally go anyway. Well have a great week!

I was hoping you'd say something like that! :) I always try to find people on here who are about where I am on my journey. That way it seems like I am doing this with someone rather than doing it alone! I'm glad I looked around on here last night for some new motivation. It's making me feel better already. Well, I will check in with you later. I'm off to start my day!
