My name is Anna and I have always been overweight. I have finally decided it is the right time to shed the pounds and feel better about myself! I want to be able to run a half or full marathon by my birthday next year, 2012.

I would also love to be in shape to keep up with my Army man. Possibly run a quicker mile than him, this is my ultimate goal!!!

I have lost about 40 pounds before but now I have 45 more to lose! Got to get back to eating right and exercising! We can all accomplish our mission, let's stick together!

UPDATE: Only have 38 more pounds to go!!! WOOHOO

    I guess 172 seems bad to me because I am only 5'0! Yea it can be really hard to admit screw ups. Just remember everything is a choice. If you mess up then next choice make it better. So exciting!!! Do you have an idea of where the honeymoon is going to be? Do you weight more often then you track it? Because this morning I weighed 174 but I felt kind of bloated and it is almost that ToM. I told myself I can weigh more often but I will only track on Friday/Saturdays. Right now I belong to No More Fat :) but when that other groups opens up I will let you know ASAP.

    Hey! I'm very happy for you! Today I started my real diet change. I am doing meal replacement shakes for Breakfast and Lunch and in between I'm snacking on fruits/veggies. Then I am going to have a sensible dinner. I am going to allow one cheat meal during the weekend. I started weighing in again this morning (Friday's or Saturday's will be my weigh in). It was terrible! 172!!! But it was definitely a kick in the butt!!!!! February I am starting a work out challenge with and SP group. I'm sick and tired of giving up. And I made a deal with myself I am not allowed to show (jumping horses) until I lose 20 lbs. And I am only looking month to month!

    Hey haven't heard from you.... all things well?

    I haven't been doing well. I'm afraid to step on the scale and see if I gained all the weight I lost back. I haven't been doing anything since I got sick. Today I will work out. I have found a couple of things that I know are bringing me down so I need to change them... even though I don't want to. One step at a time. I'll cut down a bit.

    Hope you have a great weekend!
