Keep trying!!!

I am a teacher in Northwest Connecticut. I've been overweight since I was about 10 years old. The last 10 years, though, have been the worst for my weight. I've lost 40 pounds on 4 separate occassions... and then I hit a wall and eventually it comes back. I am currently only 28 pounds below my highest weight ever, and really need to get on track.

I am a teacher in Northwest Connecticut. I've been overweight since I was about 10 years old. The last 10 years, though, have been the worst for my weight. I've lost 40 pounds on 4 separate occassions... and then I hit a wall and eventually it comes back. I am currently only 28 pounds below my highest weight ever, and really need to get on track.

I want to be a good role model for my students and hopefully for my own children in the future. While I make good choices in other areas of my life and love my school community, I do feel that my size reduces the respect I can earn from others.

I also miss a more active lifestyle! I love hikes, soccer, travelling, dancing and so many other activities that have become so much more difficult now. My weight has contributed to the major pain I have in both my feet (plantar fasciitis) my knees and my back... even when I get on a roll with exercising daily, eventually I end up with an injury that sets me back again.

I'm trying again... hopefully sticking to the diet my nutritionist recommends for me. That, along with working exercise into my busy daily schedule, are difficult obstacles for me.

We have more ability than will power, and it is often an excuse to ourselves that we imagine that things are impossible.
