Updated 10/2/08

The past 10 months have brought many battles and obstacles my way. I have learned many things........the most important being that life is too short to be miserable......I was miserable in my own skin....I was depressed and I was shutting the world out because of my own unhappiness.....I was so embarrassed that I let myself get out of control AGAIN.....Gosh was I ever going to stick to something?

The answer to that question is simple to me now.......I am DONE

DONE Being the Fat Girl

DONE Being the Fat Friend

DONE shopping in the plus sizes

DONE making excuses

DONE blaming everyone else

DONE not making time for ME

DONE feeling sorry for myself

DONE with using food to comfort me

DONE regaining the weight I worked SO hard to lose

DONE..........DONE..............DONE....
..........DONE............DONE!!!!!!!!

This journey has been so rewarding to ME.......I have come to terms with many things in my life.......I have a better understanding on what makes me tick.

Kicking these pounds to the curb has uncovered more than just pounds....there is a sexy woman just waiting to be unveiled......somewhere in there.........come out, come out wherever you are.........LOL

My rewards.......

20 pounds nails DONE
50 pounds Knit Picks knitting needle set DONE
60 pounds 2 new pairs of sandals DONE

to kiss 80 pounds Bye Bye before 4th of July.........reward will be a new bathing suit for my vacation **** DONE*****07/04/08
Bought 2 new suits........Woo Hoo!

FINAL GOAL

To be healthy and confident in my new skin....I want to be comfortable and at a weight that I can maintain......I am there now just shooting to be right under 140...to be 100 pounds DONE forever!...Met GOAL on 9/5/08

Change to 80 POUND REWARD.......A NEW BIKE!
Got my bike 7/28/08....woo hoo

A bike is a more practical option and one that is connected to maintaining and keeping this healthy body going.....LOVE it......I WILL get an IPod too down the road......I AM WORTH IT! Hoping to be able to say that I am completely DONE with all the weight loss by the time I get my new bike......if not I will ride off the remaining pounds to get there.

The stage I am at now is actually just the beginning of this journey for me......heck getting the pounds off is the easy part......maintaining and NOT putting them back off will be my true test.......Never mastered this stage in life before....I am confident that this time will be different.....I have changed so much on the inside that I am sure I can do it......I will continue to weigh myself everyday until I figure out what to do and what it will take to stay at my goal weight....once I figure it out I will share what I have learned with others to help them on their own personal journey too.......I am SOOO DONE!
