Hanging on by my fingernails!

Jan 6, 2016

Wow a new year! And I'm still here! I struggle. I struggle all the time. I am a compulsive overeater and binger and will readily admit that I 'eat my feelings'. And while I may be dormant socially on SP sometimes, I keep coming back because even a distant connection keeps my head above water in this ongoing struggle!!

Wow a new year! And I'm still here! I struggle. I struggle all the time. I am a compulsive overeater and binger and will readily admit that I 'eat my feelings'. And while I may be dormant socially on SP sometimes, I keep coming back because even a distant connection keeps my head above water in this ongoing struggle!!

I'm searching for balance and acceptance in myself more than I'm searching for big weight loss. I haven't quite figured out how to balance and maintain weightloss. I lose, sometimes a little, sometimes a lot, then I gain it back. And boy can I gain weight easily! I swear I can gain 5 lbs just by LOOKING at the food.

I want to be strong, healthy, and happy. I want to get out of my comfort zone, (which usually involves food!) and actually live life, not just watch it go by.

I love the support that SP gives me - the more friends the better!

These are my goals:

Think Positively
Exercise Daily
Eat Healthy
Work Hard
Stay Strong
Worry Less

My Goals:
While I don't want to be defined by a number, I do want to have things to strive towards:

I will NOT get on a scale more than once per week.

Start weight
333.4 - 2/25/13

Goals:
- 320 - 3/27/13
- 310 - 4/24/13
- 299 (10%) - 6/6/13
- 289 - 7/9/2013
- 279 - 8/10/2013
- 266 (20%) - 11/13/13
- 259
- 249 (lowest adult weight)

Other goals:
- to be in a healthy weight range for my height (5'9")
- to be a positive person
- to not feel like the largest person in the room all the time
- to shop in regular stores
- to be able to do things like kayaking or fly on airplanes without concern of not fitting
- to be someone that says 'well, I just got back from my run, but SURE I'll go for a walk with you.'

My Program:
Honestly tracking calories with the nutrition tracker every single day. Every single thing I eat. Trying as much as possible to stay within my calories, knowing that some days it might be impossible.

Incorporating exercise.

Cardio - elliptical, swimming, walking, hiking, occasional video

Strength training using plan designed by a trainer utilizing free weights, bosu, exercise ball.

Combo - 30 Minute Hit Kickboxing Circuit

Kundalini yoga - 1x week.



Personal Information:
I'm single, work full-time and live with a grumpy 16 year old cat on the west coast of Canada.

I'm 39 yrs old and I'm a little over 5'9" tall (I tell you this just cause when I see pictures of people at certain weights everyone is so different and I always wonder - how tall are they!!?? So now you know how tall I am. :)



Other Information:
The more friends the better!
