I'm 33 years old. Have 3 kids (ages 2, 11 and 15). I'm a full time Administrative Assistant for a Financial Institution - so the stress comes and goes.

I've been overweight most of my life from the time I hit puberty (when I stopped growing UP and started growing OUT). I have "dieted" on and off many times over the years, losing weight quickly then putting it all back on and then some more.

This time around, I want to be more realistic - still eat the foods I love but in smaller quantities and with more healthier options. I want to lose my weight slowly while training my body to love moving!

I've recently re-joined a gym and am starting to love my 2.5 hour escapes from home/work/life to just focus on me - I'll plug in my headphones and go full boar.

My boyfriend is sweet and thinks I'm gorgeous the way I am, but also supports my weight loss goals.

Mini Goals:
-Reach 220 lbs
-Get back to the gym - 12 days per month
-Jog 5 minutes straight without keeling over (former smoker)
-Join first 5K walk (JOINED June 9th, Walk to Fight Arthritis, Pledge goal = $250.00)

Long term goal:
- Get back to my former 190 lbs before I was pregnant with my youngest
-Jog minimum 30 minutes daily

Ultimate goal:
-150 - 165 lbs

-5K Run then 10K run

inflammation and "diet" foods and weight gain
wow... makes me think. I gained 6 lbs in a week's time. I have also been eating a LOT of tomatoes over the past week because I got a whole bunch of them from a friend (and honestly was the only veggie/fruit I had available that was fresh and not canned). I'm also bloated like crazy and sore in all my joints. Going to stop eating them for a few days and see what happens.

Ahh! I've seen girls at the gym doing that (they have a special Weight with the loop for handle). I was wondering what it was.

Thanks Spacey Smile

Fair Food and the power of your mind.
Yeah thats like our Poutine - it IS a Canadian thing, many people around the world have NO idea what it is (french fries doused in gravy and cheese curds). Also makeable at home - substituting deep fried fries for oven fries Smile

Oh my gosh!! Waffles & Ice cream? You know I love my waffle cones, but never thought of the actual Waffles as a combo with Ice cream. Now I'm doomed... J/k! Gonna have to try it though!
