Recovering Carbo-Holic

Hello! I am a former teacher, now stay-at-home mom. No longer any excuses to hold me back from finding the healthy me. I am done avoiding activities I love because my size or embarrassment over the way I look. I want to be a good role model health-wise for my son and get back to actually LIVING life.

I am DONE:
-Being a hermit so that I can avoid judgement about my weight
-Wearing shorts under dresses because my fatty thighs rub together
-Avoiding plane travel ...
Hello! I am a former teacher, now stay-at-home mom. No longer any excuses to hold me back from finding the healthy me. I am done avoiding activities I love because my size or embarrassment over the way I look. I want to be a good role model health-wise for my son and get back to actually LIVING life.

I am DONE:
-Being a hermit so that I can avoid judgement about my weight
-Wearing shorts under dresses because my fatty thighs rub together
-Avoiding plane travel because I feel so large and in charge in the seats
-Wearing sleeves and pants in the AZ summer because of my thighs and "sausage arms"
-Avoiding theatre and sporting events because the arm rests on the seats push against my legs
-With high blood pressure and anything else that may arise b/c of my weight
-Being in the obese BMI range
-Shopping for ill-fitting plus size clothes or anything with an X in it
-Sitting on the couch waiting for life to get better while it is simply passing me by...

NO MORE BEING A SPECTATOR OF LIFE. Who's with me?! :)

**Start weight: 360+ after giving birth to our son (not sure of exact weight because the scale at my OB office maxed out. Eye opener!)

**Current weight: 287

(Update-6/10/15)-Went back to work for a year and left again, as we felt my calling is at home. Gained 47 pounds back due to stress of schedule with my toddler, finishing my Master's degree and a long commute to/from my sedentary job (334 lbs). Instead of kicking myself like I would have in the past, I am realizing that I am not off the wagon and facing a mountain to climb. I just need to refocus and realize that I am worth this life-long journey. We would like to try for a second child at the end of this year/start of 2016 and I will not be open to this idea until I am at least down to 280. No more high-risk pregnancies!

**Goal weight: Losing 10% at a time and ultimately 180 or less (i'll see when I get there but will not give up on myself this time!)

I'm doing good. Just trucking along and enjoying the beautiful weather! How about you? The family is doing good. Keeping me super busy like always! I haven't been getting on spark quite as much as I should, but I'm still really focused and reaching goals one day at a time. As long as I check myself at all these summer cookouts. emoticon

So far so good though! Again I'm so glad to see you back and I look forward to chatting with you!

Good evening, Lindsay!

Ugh! I've been slacking lately. I haven't been tracking my nutrition and the little voice in my head is saying that no one will notice.

Then I get on the scale and it laughs at me, as if saying, "Yeah, I notice."

I'm going to get back on track first thing in the morning. How about you? Hope your weekend has been more successful than mine.

Hattie
