I am a wife and have a 2 year old DS. I like to participate in sports but don't like to exercise, per se. I work part-time and am really into cake decorating, which doesn't help the waistline much either!

I am DONE....being the fat mom!
I am DONE....not being able to shop at any clothing store I want!
I am DONE....living in the would of/could of/should of world of Someday Land!
I am DONE....not being able to wear my wedding band and my engagement ring on the same finger! (I now can wear them both and do every day! Whoo-hoo!)
I am DONE....letting my weight and food dictate my life!

I am a DONE girl--how about you?

Why Do I Want to Lose Weight?
*To fit into all the clothes in my closet and not have to worry
*To wear my wedding and engagement rings everyday--check
*No double chin
*No thighs touching/shorts riding up
*No need to worry about looking pregnant/muffin top
*Be able to tell people my weight without embarrassment
*Be able to minister to other women with weight/esteem issues
*Weigh less than my husband
*Have my husband call me beautiful
*Have my husband consistently physically attracted to me
*Be able to wear lingerie without issues/worries
*Be able to be active with my son as he grows up
*Continue to play sports without major pains/injuries/health concerns
*Keep bp down, keep diabetes away, keep shortness of breath away (BP 112/70--7/21/10)
*Tell people my clothes size without embarrassment
*Find good things at Goodwill and be able to buy them and know they'll fit
*Know that I am seriously considered for leading roles because I "look the part"
*Feel like I fit in with other moms/career women
*Not have to worry that a bad day's eating or a bad meal is "the end of it"
*Not have to struggle with pantihose falling down or not quite getting all the way to the top
*Underwear stays where I put it
*Not have shop in the big girls' section for bras
*Sit in any chair and not have to fear it won't hold
*Not have to buy Q pantihose
*Look like a mother my son can be proud of

What will life look like in the future?
Sports, active w/family, go for runs together and alone, sign up for family run-walks, star in the musical/play, volunteer, don't have to worry most of the time at City Museum (lol)

What would an ideal day look like?
Eating well and not eating just because it's there or I feel guilty or want to horde. Fruits and veggies naturally a part of the menu. Constantly trying new healthy options. Keep portion sizes in mind. Still enjoying foods but in moderation. Feels good to get up in the morning and feels good to lie down at night.

What personal values do I want to express daily?
Continued love and devotion to family, volunteering, SAHM, love life and being active, going around town--sharing things with my DS, ability to explore

What else needs to change?
I can be beautiful on the inside and let that reflect to the outside without the outside reflecting the inside. Increased confidence is not dependent on the scale. Being active starts now. Stop finding comfort in food. Stop looking to food to satisfy. Stop allowing what I think of my weight to dictate what other people must think about me. Don't let other things "go" just because I'm not happy with how I look. I can be overweight and still be hot!

I live outside of St. Louis with my DH and DS. We also have two dogs but unfortunately, they're not very good "walking" dogs, so can't take them with me on my walk/runs.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my page and leave a comment. From the summer of 2007 and on I have been in the 140's(up & down). I guess I never thought to list that under the first picture I posted of me at that weight. I definitely will do that when I hit my goal. Also, on my Sparkpage is a St. Louis SparkTeam that is planning a walk in April. It's a great way to meet other Sparkers. And, by the way Welcome to Sparkpeople. emoticon emoticon
