I'm constantly struggling, yet always trying to get off of this weight loss roller coaster. I want to finally, once and for all, reach and maintain a fit and healthy weight, way of eating and active lifestyle.

I will never give up.

I am still here to track my progress as I recreate myself to be the me I want to be, renewing myself, like a Phoenix. The me I want to be is fun-loving, care-free, fit, healthy, confident, does not obsess over food or getting in fitness minutes because healthy eating and movement are just something I will do naturally. I want to take surfing lessons, go scuba diving and snorkeling, I want to dance on the beach, to take the stairs without getting winded, to really enjoy life without the constant worry of what anyone else thinks of me, or of being too fat or unfit to do anything I want to do, to feel really good in my own skin.

I CAN DO IT!
(Affirmative I CAN statements;
an exercise in positive self-talk.)
I can do it because I want it so badly.
I can do it because I can accomplish anything I set my mind to.
I can do it because I am determined.
I can do it because I am unstoppable.
I can do it because I am strong enough to.
I can do it because I am a winner.
I can do it because I believe in myself

No one wants me to be healthy, fit and thin as much as I want it for myself, no one. I have to be my own biggest supporter. I have to learn to love myself through this.

Brief SP history:
I have been on SP since March of 2007. In the beginning I lost 57 lbs and kept most of it off for slightly over a year... then fell back into old habits and it all came back plus some. In 2013 I lost 42 lbs... but during the last quarter of the year, (the time I struggle with most) I gained back 18. Started again on 1/1/14 at 226.5
3/21/2007: 235
9/30/2007: 178
2008: kept around 185 - 190
2009: began gaining again
1/1/2010: 244 & ups and downs
2011: more ups and downs
1/1/2012: 248.5
Nov.2012: 252 (highest weight ever)
1/1/2013: 247.5
Aug.2013: 208
1/1/2014: back up to 226.5
5/28/14: I'm in ONEderland! 199

Life's too short....
to sleep on low thread count sheets.
to waste time matching socks.
to wear pantyhose.
to safely remove usb.
to waste time on people who suck your happiness away.
to waste time on people to whom you are an option.
to waste time on people who ignore you.
for my favorite activity to be eating instead of living!
to keep being fat, miserable, & lazy.
to not be on the beach!
