I did it once and I can do it again ! 130# off and kept off for 3 years. 80# back on now due to poor coping skills with stress. This time it stays off. I don't want to die young or be in pain until I die old. I want energy and I deserve to be happy, energetic, and fit ! I've always taken care of others, now I take care of myself. NO MORE GUILT !!! I have choices.

Update: I had actually gained 147 # from my laziness. I had been at 177# for 3 years and still felt fat and out of control, poor self esteem. October 2013 I started again because I was unwilling to totally give up on myself. I discovered I really do love myself and I am worth so much more than what I think food & laziness were giving me.

10/5/2015 Update: I have finally arrived to Onederland. 199.3# Now on to goal !

    We have had a very wimpy Winter too and I like it that way. I think Kansas and Missouri got hit hard. I hate ice and snow.

    France is looking better and better to me all the time. LOL. My hubby mentioned selling out and moving abroad today. LOL.

    I hope your brother will quit smoking.

    Thanks for the comment on my photo too!

    You are funny!! I have treats in moderation now. I love ice-cream so I have it in a small cup and make sure it is light. Hope I am not being bad but I can't quit cold turkey!! If you know what I mean.. A little piece of chocolate won't hurt - just not the whole bar!! LOL.. Hugz,
