I'm married with 3 "children"...my cat, Poonie, my dog, Jorge, and my new puppy, Otis. I have always been "chunky" since high school and it's something that people just don't understand unless they have struggled with it also. My plan is to incorporate exercise into my life. For the past 7 yrs, I have worked as a medical assistant in an office so most of my days consist of desk work. My "diet" plan is to try and exercise portion control and make better choices. Cooking for 2 is hard enough...especially when I'm trying to be healthier and my husband isn't. From all of my past failures, I have found that when I try to cut out all of the foods that are not really good for me, I tend to fall right back into old habits and give up. So when having the things I love that I shouldn't, my plan is to eat less than I normally would. I quit smoking on 12/24/11. Work stress sometimes gets the best of me which makes my goals even harder. By joining Fatsecret, I hope to have the support I need to get going in the right direction.
It's New Year's Day 2012 and here we go again! In October, I had my weight down to 146. Something happened inside me that made me just give up. Now I'm sitting here at 162 squeezed into my jeans wondering why the hell I let myself get back to this place given all the hard work it took to get the weight off in the first place! My ultimate goal is to lose 30 lbs by Spring 2012. I know this can happen if I put effort into it! NO EXCUSES!
