Things Work Out Best for People Who Make the Best of the Way Things Work Out

Jan 3, 2014

That saying above there? THAT is my new mantra for 2014. I'm going to approach things in my life with an open, positive, and grateful mind and be thankful for all the wonderful things that turn out just as they should.

So 2013 was supposed to be the year I learned to love myself. I definitely made some progress towards that goal, but I have such a long way to go. So here we are in 2014 - a shiny brand new year to continue to work towards my goals! ...

That saying above there? THAT is my new mantra for 2014. I'm going to approach things in my life with an open, positive, and grateful mind and be thankful for all the wonderful things that turn out just as they should.

So 2013 was supposed to be the year I learned to love myself. I definitely made some progress towards that goal, but I have such a long way to go. So here we are in 2014 - a shiny brand new year to continue to work towards my goals!

I am still learning to love myself, care for myself, value myself and show myself that I'm worth it. I didn't do this for a very long time. I have struggled with my weight my entire life starting on diets when I was 8. I've been on many diets, I've lost and gained weight a countless number of times and ways. My weight has defined me and it has kept me from being the person I want to be and doing the things I want to do.

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

Be Happy

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

- 266 (20%) - 11/13/13
- 259
- 249 (lowest adult weight)
- 239
- 233 (100 lbs)



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 old cat on the west coast of Canada.

I'm 38 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!

Thanks for the shoes. (I really could use a new pair) I need to update my grand kids pictures. The youngest is 7. Hope you have a great weekend.

I'm excited to start this BLC as a Honey Badger with you. I am also an emotional/binge eater(way bad lately). Mostly I can control myself, but I am still an angry eater and I have had LOTS of anger lately. Hopefully we can work on it this round. emoticon

I've been out of loop. so I apologize that I didn't welcome you to the Living Binge Free team earlier. We are a bit different in that losing weight takes second place to to getting our binge eating under control. My goal is to live WITH food, not fearing it, and not not consistently overeating. I am committed to supporting that for all bingers. Here's to a day of sane eating!
