I am a 34 yr old student, mom, & wife. I have began some new things in my life some I have chose to do on my own the others I don't have a choice. My choice is going back to school, my don't have a choice is that I'm having to change the way I eat & the way I live my life. I am from the South and while I love where I come from it is not the healthiest lifestyle. I was raised to be a southern cook but that southern cooking is biting me in the butt. I am too young to have the issues I am having. My blood pressure is going up and down, my cholestrol is up, and my weight well, lets just I'm not pleased to say the least. If I am like this at 34 I am scared to think of what I'm going to being like at 68. So I have changed how I eat and add exercise and I hope my changes pay off. They have some because within the last few I have lost 23lbs. It's not my ultimate goal but it's a start!
1st mini goal: 199lbs, 06-12-2011
1st major goal: 175lbs, 10-10-2011
2nd mini goal: 160lbs
Final major goal: Still undecided:)
Wow what can I say? It's been a long, hard but awesome journey!!! Instead changing my first bio entry I am just going to keep it as a reminder of where I started. Since March of this year I have lost a whopping 83lbs! I have never lost this much weight and it is taking some getting use to but I am loving it more every day. To anyone who reads this and is where I started, believe that you can do this as well because me, a past yo-yo dieter, can actually achieve this anyone can! I still have bad days but the good days are the ones that are more frequent now. I'm still not sure exactly where I want to stop officially and begin just maintaining. I am going to take that in strides and go with how I feel about myself. I know where my doctor wants me but this is also about me being happy with me and that is something very importatnt that I have had to learn.
