About Me:
I have always been the fat girl. My memories are enveloped by fears and hesitations due to me being "heavy". I have two brothers both of which have never had a weight problem. I always used to joke around that they eat it and I gain it. I have spent the last 2 years trying to focus myself on losing weight and making myself heathier. I have managed to lose 36 pounds. Is that better, YES! Can I do better, Absolutely! I have tried every diet made known to man, and the one that makes the most sence to me is diet and activity. Will I ever get to my goal of being a healthy person at a healthy weight? Who knows! But one can only hope.....and eat better.
Plan of Choice:
Low Fat
Workout Philosophy:
I only exercise because I have to

And so my story begins....with a step

...actually it began 30 years ago, but here is the latest from the never ending saga of my dieting success and failures. Yesterday while on Facebook I did one of those extremely accurate know the ones that people make up, and you're friends take them and pass them off on you! Well, I took one that said "How much should you weigh". And after it asked me a whole ONE question, "How tall are you"? It gave me an answer...130 pounds! Good gravy! If I wanted the whole anorexic look then ya, but I don't!

And then I took a long hard look at people around me that are trying to lose weight. My sister-in-law has always looked for the quick fixes, you know Optifast, Jenny craig, things that you couldn't do forever. Then theres my mom. Ever since I can remember she has started a diet on the first of EVERY month. She's tried Atkins, Weight Watchers, LA Weightloss, the cabbage soup diet, the grapfruit diet...there isn't a doet this woman hasn't attempted...much like a lot of us on here! And truth be told she's always done well. But the fact of the matter is she really doesn't need to lose that much! For her age, I would say she is very healthy and active. But does she see that? No! So I sat and asked myself (because I talk to myself a lot!) Do we do this to ourselves because we REALLY want to lose the weight, is it because we want to be healthy, or do we do it out of habit? Is it a habit that we start a diet on the first of every month? Is it a habit that we want a quick fix for everything in our lives? I think the answer is yes. I think the reason people fail at losing weight and succeeding is it becomes a habit and we get stuck in the same rut, day in and day out. Eating the same things, doing the same boring activities. Trying the same unrealistic approach.

So what can one do about this? I'm really not quite sure. Now I'm not a brilliant person, but what I do know is in order to change something you have to start with 1 step in a different direction. It doesn't have to be a giant leap and by making this small step doesn't mean you have to change everything all at once. It just means you have the option to change what you don't like. I think Benjamin Button said it best! "Our lives our defined by oportunities, even the ones we miss". Enough said!

Day 1- 227.5...feeling ready!

Posted on June 11, 2009 at 12:33pm 0 Comments

So that was my official weigh in this morning. I am a little pleased considering a couple of weeks ago I weighed in at 229! I started my morning out with a cup of granola and 1/2 cup milk=420 cal. for the granola and 55 cal. for the milk. I bought a bunch of cantelope at Costco the other day, so I am going to take a bunch of that to work. I am going to count 1500 cal a day, which was what I did last year to lose weight. My first goal is to lose 9.5#'s to get me back to where I was in April of… Continue

My opportunity...

Posted on June 9, 2009 at 2:11am 0 Comments

I have many goals in life. Some may seem small and insignifigant to some and silly to others. But they are MY goals and I have no problems telling anyone and everyone who wants to hear them. Maybe it is me getting older and being in my thirties that things just dont bother me anymore. When I was in my twenties I cared ALL about what other people thought of me and not enough about what I thought of unrealistic and twisted that is, right? I think Roni actually just posted a blog… Continue

Snowed in!

Posted on December 19, 2008 at 9:30am 0 Comments

So as of the last count I saw yesterday morning we were at 30 inches....and that was before it snowed all day and most of the night, I would imagine you could add another 6 inches to that number. I work 20 minutes away and hope I can make it on the freeway. School has been closed the last two days and most of the banks, stores and malls shut down as well. I think the wind drifts make it look like more snow because in some places it looks like there is 6 feet of snow! Not to mention it makes it… Continue

The flat belly diet...anyone?

Posted on December 16, 2008 at 9:30am 0 Comments

SO I ordered this book from prevention. And it seems like it would work, except for the "excercise optional" part. I think thats kinda stretchin' it. Here's what I've gathered:

1.) They say to eat 4- 400 cal. meals a day.

2.) Eat at least 1 "MUFA" (which I believe are healthy/natural fats) at each meal. Which would be nuts, avacado's, olive oil, dark chocolate etc.

3.) Be as stress free as you can, since stress makes cortisol which makes belly fat. (By the way this step… Continue

WOW! When it rains, it pours....or trickles!! LOL

Posted on December 15, 2008 at 9:00pm 3 Comments

So waking up Sunday morning to 4 degree weather, not including the wind chill was fabulous....oh and then I went to get in the shower and a tiny little trickle came out. CRAP! So I checked the sink faucet.....and nothing. Yep, our pipes froze! Every single one of them in the house. What does that mean? No shower, no brusing your teeth with water, no washing dishes or flushing the toilets....NOTHING! We called the water company because we thought it was the main line that was frozen and he… Continue
