I'm going to do it

It is that time in my life that I have decided that enough is enough. Over the past 5 years I have put on almost 50 pounds. That is 10 pounds a year. I am sick of it, and I am not going to take it anymore.

I am ready to move on. My husband and I have purchased a treadmill, I quit my job, and I have time to get back to what I used to be, and start to be myself again.

So who am I? What am I like? Why should anyone care about me and my progress? Well the truth is, it doesn't matter who I am, what I am like, and I don't care what you think about me. This is a way for me to help reach my goals and record what I do, so I can try to do better and change my ways. Its about me helping myself, and from what I tried, this might actually be the thing that helps me. I will record what I have done as often as I can.

What am I like right now? Well I just weighed myself. I am 195.8 pounds. I have a 38-40 DD chest and wear a size 14 pant. For those of you that really know me, I like to say 20 pounds of my weight is my chest. I know its a lie. But I like to think that.

My goal is to weigh 140 pounds. I will get there. I am determined. I want my life back. I lost myself in work. Stress in my life adds weight. I know I will stress about paying bills, but I am lucky to have a supporting husband. We are thankful for what we have been given in our lives, and I know that we can make it.

I will keep you updated with workouts (thanks to ifit and Jillian Michaels, possibly my wii fit (plus), and whatever else I do that might burn calories). Join me on my ups and downs, and my LOVE of food.

Its an adventure, that I am going to start now, in the middle of the holidays! I know I am crayz, but I need to do it!! I am doing it for me. FOR ME!

peace. love. dove.

  1. I hope you don't mind me following this blog, too. I can so relate to so much of what you said! I gained 60 pounds in the last 6 years. We moved and I started teaching full-time. I know it was the stress that did it. I also was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and some days I'm in too much pain to exercise. For 1 1/2 years, it was all I could do just to get to work, so that's when the real weight gain happened. I quit my job in July so I want to lose weight and regain my health. Since August I've been able to stop taking ALL my medication but the scales haven't moved much. I weigh 198.8 and also have a 38DD chest. We can do this because we want to !!! Good luck :D I'm hear for ya!!
