Not really losing, but maintaining at least :-)

My boyfriend took this on our NYC vacation August 2007. It's one of the only full body shots I can find.

This picture was one of the ones that made me realize how heavy I really looked.

I'm 27 and I first joined SP because my weight has always fluxuated. Last year a friend my size lost 20 lbs and regained her confidence. It inspired me to lose 20 lbs myself...

Of which I promptly gained most.

So, I'm working on coming back to get it right this time... and the next.

I like feeling good and living healthily. But I'd like to look better, too. Sometimes life gets between me and healthy living, so I'm trying to teach myself the discipline to make good choices even when they aren't easy and even when other people try to dissuade me and even when I try to dissuade myself.

And, ahhhhhh-- Ani: Fierce Flawless
"there was light and then there was darkness
but there was no line in between
and asking her heart for guidance
was like pleading with a machine
cuz joy, it has its own justice
my dreams are languid and lawless
and everything bows to beauty
when it is fierce
and when it is flawless"

    I totally know what you mean!! I also feel so tired by the end of the day that all I want to do is lay on the couch. I've been FORCING myself to work out. Sheer willpower.
