Weight Loss Is Hard But I'm Determined, Willing, And Able

I'm a 26 year old female. I'm 5'9" and have had weight problems my entire life. I used to over eat, have bigger portions then what was needed, I used to only eat 1 large meal a day, ate a lot of fast food, would drink 3-4 sodas a day, and food was always pushed onto me.

I'm trying to lose weight for myself and my health. I've been on a diet and working out since March 2007. My goal is to reach my goal weight of 168lbs by January 2015.

I no longer drink sodas, I drink ...

I'm trying to lose weight for myself and my health. I've been on a diet and working out since March 2007. My goal is to reach my goal weight of 168lbs by January 2015.

I no longer drink sodas, I drink a lot of water, I monitor my portion sizes, and I count my calories. I do have a sweet tooth so I am trying to control it.


~ Mending a broken heart is hard but losing weight is even harder. It takes will power, drive, love, determination, and a caring for ones self to better your mind, body, soul, and lifestyle. ~

~ My weight does not define who I am as a person. I am me even when I'm "fat" or "skinny". Nothing changes, just my weight and smaller clothes. ~

~ It's better to have loved then to never have loved at all. ~

~ Nothing in life is ever set in stone, only you have the ability to change it and make it the way YOU want to. ~

~ I do not tolerate disrespect, rudeness, or caddyness. I also do not tolerate emotional, physical, mental, or sexual abuse. I've been through it growing up and I refuse to take it now that I am an adult. I will not accept a man hitting me. If a man ever laid a hand on me or tried to I will be gone quicker than the energizer bunny on steroids. ~

~ I do not smoke. I do not do drugs of any kind. Never have and never will. ~

~ I only consume alcohol on rare occassions. ~

~ I love my family even though they are crazy, drive me up a wall, stress me out, and worry me to death. I have an extremely small family (2 uncles, godmother who isn't related by blood, a family friend who is like a mother, a 2nd cousin who I never see, and a cousin whom I just started making contact with. I'm some what close to my family but my uncles and I are complete opposites, I think due to the huge age gap. My uncles are 71 and 68 years old, they are my mom's brothers. ~

~ I never really knew my mom. I don't remember her. I don't remember her laugh, her smile, her smell, her touch, her love, or her voice. The only thing I remember is the day she died and I wish I didn't have that one single memory of her as it haunts me every single day. I miss her so much but yet I never knew her so I don't know exactly what I MISS but I guess I miss being loved and having a mother in my life. ~

~ Growing up without a mom was hard but it makes me who I am today. ~

~ The past is in the past. My past does not define my future. There are people in my past who will STAY in my PAST because there is a reason why they didn't make it to my future. ~

~ I was engaged at one point when I was 19. We dated for 2 years and were engaged for a year of those 2 years. I realize now that it was a MISTAKE so I've learned from it. ~

~ I don't exactly date much because the guys locally to me do not like bigger girls. They aren't worth my time if they can no accept me for who I am. My guy friends tell me all the time that my personality is attractive but my looks aren't. ~

~ I woke up one day and thought to myself "I'm FAT! I need to CHANGE this NOW." So here I am on sparkpeople trying to better myself. I don't want to be razor skinny, just a healthy weight that I feel comfortable at. ~

~ My uncle Lou has been sick for many years, since I was 8 years old. It's sad to watch someone slowly deteriate infront of your eyes. I love him more than anything in this world and it saddens me that someday I will have to say goodbye. But saying goodbye is something that needs to be done and letting go is a must. Sometimes I wish my uncles would just "let go" but I know they never will and I will always be that 5 year old little girl in their eyes. ~

~ My uncles are very over protective of me. I still live with them and help them with the bills and stuff around the house. They are intimidating to guys sometimes. Hmmm maybe that's why I'm single? haha... ~

~ I lost my job in June of 2008 and am still unemployed. Looking for a new job is hard but I'm determined to find something soon. ~

~ I don't want to be morbidly obese, obese, overweight, fat, skinny, thin, or anorexic. I justt want to be HEALTHY and healthy to each person is different and that's okay. ~

~ I am who I am. I will not change for anyone but myself. I love myself therefore I can love others. You must have love for oneself before loving someone else. ~

~ I'm too loving and giving for my own good. My heart is too big and I wear it on my sleeve. People tend to think I'm easily broken but I'm not, just easily hurt because I am a semi sensitive person. I put others before myself and it's time I put ME first ~

Yikes! Sounds like your boyfriend hasn't had the best luck with work and his ankle situation. I hope he is able to get in to see a podiatrist soon, because it sounds like he can't hope for much improvement until after that happens!
