I have felt bad about my weight for my whole life. Looking back on high school photos makes me so sad for that girl, because she was so not fat.

A couple years ago I managed to lose 20 pounds from my 211 high and have kept it off for 2 years. However, 185ish on a 5'2" frame is still WAAAAY too much weight.

I have no specific goals because no matter what goals I set, i never seem to achieve them. Plus, setting goals makes me feel more like i'm "on a diet" and not ...

I have no specific goals because no matter what goals I set, i never seem to achieve them. Plus, setting goals makes me feel more like i'm "on a diet" and not just changing my life. I've tried diets and programs and whatnot for too long. I know that would never work.

My Goals:
~ I want to enjoy my world.
~ I want to get in and out of my car without feeling like I need a shoehorn or an oxygen tank.
~I want to believe that a man could look twice at me because I look good and not because I'm such a disgusting cow.

My Program:
I am creating my own program using knowledge from the Curves diet, Bethenny Frankel's Naturally Thin book, and too much trial and error.

I have a bowl of multi grain cheerios every morning and a protein shake for lunch so I can walk at the gym. Evenings and sweets are my weakness. Sometimes I can figure a reasonably healthy supper, but I end up hungry again and get something to tide me through. I need enough structure to know what to eat when but enough variety to not get bored so fast as I usually do.

For exercise I am admitting defeat in DVDs. I hate them. I just plain hate them . I can do a 20 minute video on my roku if necessary, but I prefer movement. I've walked 25 minutes every work day at lunch for months. Since spring has sprung in Wisconsin I may start walking in the early morning to add to it. I'm also hoping to add a bit of biking and some strength training.

Personal Information:
~30-something ~Single
~Got fat little by little over a very long period of time
~Realized awhile ago that I've ALWAYS thought I was fat. See my photo album for proof. I was 115 in high school and wanted to lose my belly. What I wouldn't give to have that belly now!!!

Other Information:
Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is to always try one more time. -Thomas Edison

Who decides I have to work in a cube 40 hours a week 50 weeks a year doing 30 to life? -From I Will Teach You To Be Rich blog.

I just wanted to say a quick prayer for you. May God bless you with new opportunities that align with His plan for your life. May He bring about positive changes that allow your spirit to soar. I pray that He opens new doors to you and gives you clear directions on what to do. May He cover you in His love and grace. Amen.
