This is THE LAST TIME

I have struggled with my weight all my life. I wasn't the typical "fat kid" but I was always a little chubby. I danced and played softball through the years, was on color guard and the golf team in high school. I was always the fat one of my group of friends. Though I wasn't obese, I felt that I stuck out like a sore thumb. I met my now-husband when I was 17. We moved in together when I was 18. He was an athlete in HS and has always been very much "in shape". We started working out ...
I have struggled with my weight all my life. I wasn't the typical "fat kid" but I was always a little chubby. I danced and played softball through the years, was on color guard and the golf team in high school. I was always the fat one of my group of friends. Though I wasn't obese, I felt that I stuck out like a sore thumb. I met my now-husband when I was 17. We moved in together when I was 18. He was an athlete in HS and has always been very much "in shape". We started working out together and trying to eat well together and push each other to be better. I lost about 35 lbs. I felt GREAT! I looked my age, I felt my age, I was so happy! Life was good, my relationship was successful, the sex was AWESOME! But I got comfortable and gained it all back, plus some. ABout 5 years later, my husband proposed. Before the wedding, I found Spark People. I used it to it's fullest extent. Message boards, buddies, tracking, all of it. I worked out like a beast, ate really well (even went full veggie for a couple months right before) and lost about 25 lbs. Once again, after the wedding and honeymoon, I got comfortable and gained it all back, and then some. Now being right over 200lbs (at 5'8), I am miserable with myself. I am miserable that I let myself go again, I'm miserable that my husband has to be with a cow. I'm miserable that I don't look or feel 26 years old but more like 36 or even 40! Our sex life has not been great. My clothes don't fit right, even if it's something that does fit. I'm always tired...

So this is it. THIS IS THE LAST TIME! I am taking control of my life, getting back on track, and not losing it again. I have a pretty set schedule these days as far as work and school are concerned. But I want more time with my husband and our fluffy dog. I don't want to go home at night and pass out while I'm doing homework and not have a relationship with my husband. That's how it has become and this is NOT how it's going to be.

This is it. I WILL lose the 50 necessary pounds. I WILL build strength and confidence. I WILL eat better and take care of myself for myself and my husband. I WILL make a daily effort to be the ABSOLUTELTY BEST ME I CAN BE!

Oh awesome! A fellow singer! How cool! I saw your post on Nashville and going there for a tv appearance. I've never been to Nashville and I'm going for the first time in April. If you have any suggestions on good places to go (attractions, restaurants, live music, etc), I'd love to hear! emoticon
