Fall down 8 times, get up 9

2012 didn't work out quite as planned, but I can't ever give up. You should never give up on getting what you want. 2013 will be the year of being good to myself!

8/6/11 - I'm finally under 210 and can officially say I LOST 50 POUNDS!!!!

3/28/11 - Life kind of threw me for a loop these last six weeks and I kept gaining and losing the same 3 pounds, but I finally hit my 40 pound mark. And now my goal is the big 5-0. I'm just 9.6 pounds away from 50. Oh My Word! I'm ...

3/28/11 - Life kind of threw me for a loop these last six weeks and I kept gaining and losing the same 3 pounds, but I finally hit my 40 pound mark. And now my goal is the big 5-0. I'm just 9.6 pounds away from 50. Oh My Word! I'm almost at the 50 pound mark. By May 1st I hope and pray I can update my page and say I lost 50 pounds. I'm going to do everything I can to make that happen.

2/19/11 - I'm 1 pound away from losing 40 pounds. Just one teeny tiny pound! It's amazing what you can do once you decide to stop resting before you get tired. I used to do that. All the time. And I used to eat before I was hungry. It got me nowhere but unhappy and unhealthy. Now I'm putting my health first and I'm staying conscious of what I put into my body. Everything I do is a decision. Its a choice. And I choose myself.

12/28/10 - I've lost 27 pounds since starting in September and I have no intention of stopping. I want to be healthy, I want to be happy. But most of all I want to tell that negative Nellie sitting on my shoulder to shove it. I am worth it. I can do this. And I am accountable only to myself. The only person that can make me happy is me.

We all know that weight loss is hard. And we all know what it feels like when people look at you with sympathy/disgust/etc.
But I've become invisible. No one sees me anymore and I'm tired of being in this shell that's guarding me for the rest of the world. I want my life back, and I know weight loss isn't a magical genie that will make everything perfect. But the sense of accomplishment is a start.

Personal Information:
I'm single, I live in Hamilton NJ, I love to read, and I'm almost 30 (yeesh!)

I smile when I feel like crying because if I frowned every time I felt mad or sad or stressed, I'd get frown lines, and no one wants to see that!




Other Information:
You need to remind yourself how much is possible and how good life can be when you choose light over dark in everything you do. The world is still a wonderful place, not least because you are in it.
