"Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out." - Robert Collier

Hello all.

In February of 2005, I tipped the scales at over 270 pounds.

I began a life-changing diet and exercise program and in just 2 and 1/2 years I had dropped roughly 130 pounds. But I still have not reached my ideal weight.

My goal is to get down to 130 pounds and I've been stuck between 140 and 145 for over a year now.


I need a new strategy. That's why I joined.


I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism on January 8th, 2009.

My Goals:
My first goal was to get under 200 pounds:
ACHEIVED

My second goal was to get down to 170:
ACHEIVED

My final goal is to get down to 130:
IN PROGRESS

My Program:
I gave up sweets entirely: No pop, candy, cake, cookies, ice cream, syrup, jelly, etc.

I don't eat for at least three hours before I go to sleep.

I only drink skim milk and water.

I eat lots of fruits and veggies.

I only eat when I'm hungry. (Sometimes people think they're hungry when they're really just bored, thirsty, etc.)

Other than that, nothing is off limits.

I find if you make a diet too strict like "No chips, no pizza, no burgers", it just gets to be too much and I could never stick with it.

Sure, I eat those foods a lot less, but I don't deny myself them entirely.

If I really want pizza, I'll have it.

Iíve also added more complex carbohydrates to my diet, such as: 100% whole grain bread, buns, bagels, etc., brown rice and whole wheat pastas.

And I exercise at least 20 minutes a day, 7 days a week on my Gazelle Edge. And then I add in other exercises when I can. I love to swim, jump rope,

Personal Information:
My name is Tonya and I'm from Chaska, Minnesota.

I live for horror films, underground music and good books.

Hi sister, how have you been doing?
I am doing fine. Sorry it has been so long.
Been busy job hunting and volunteering.
Helped the library up the road with the Summer Reading Program.
It was a lot of fun. I enjoyed every minute of it!
I also enjoyed helping the church with their VBS.
Hope that you are doing well. Have a good day!!!!
