performance: losing 3.4 lb a week

Back in March 2006 I weighed 255lbs and standing at 5 foot 2", that's a whole lot of woman. I turned 39 in January 2006 and took a real hard look at myself in the mirror - and I didn't like who I saw - I didn't like the outside and I was pretty tired of who I was on the inside too.
I started thinking about my daughter (she was 9 at the time) and how I wanted to be around to see her have children and knew that if I kept eating like I was and not exercising I wasn't going to be around to see that. I was being a terrible role model and really wanted my daughter to look up to me and want to be around me - I knew I wasn't being that to her and I didn't like being around myself so I knew no one else did either, especially her.
So, I started my lifestyle change in March 2006 and lost 115 in a year! I was feeling great, looking great and started loving myself - I ran my first 5K in May 2007 and ran my first 10K in October 2009!
Well back in July 2010 I started slacking off on my exercise routine and started eating more than I should - I fell off the wagon - I don't know why but I did – well, I do know why – my brother moved in with me and my family and slept on our couch for almost three months – He threw my whole routine and life out of whack and instead of making some adjustments – which if anyone knows me knows it’s close to impossible for me to do – I just quit - my head just wasn't in it anymore.
Since then I have gained a little over 30 pounds!!!
I've been trying to get my psyche right again since the 1st of January 2011. SO....here I am today - (now it's 2013) - I believe I am ready now to "get back on my wagon"
Oh yeah, I'm a Corporate Services Administrator for a civil engineering firm - so the most exercise I get during the day is getting up and going pee!

The dreaded Aspartame
Stop drinking that stuff with aspartame!!! Read some literature on it and you will never go near the stuff. I hate drinking water and have also had a hard time finding a sweetener that doesn't have the "after taste". I put a product called "PURE LEMON" in my water so it at least has a flavor to it. It has less than a gram of carbs per packet so i have to count it in my total carb intake. It's all natural instead being an artificial flavor. Good luckSmile
