8/13/18 Time to refocus! 9/20/15 Down 78 pounds! 12/01/14 I have lost some weight and I am at an all time adult low for me pretty much. Onederland seems approachable! 8/14/13 Can some one tell me why I give up on me so easily? Yet I will ask the boys for 10 yrs straight to take out the trash? I have decided to revamp my introduction text to coincide with the revamping of my energy! Last year I was down 56 pounds and loving it!! "Never again will I be that overweight!" I kept saying to myself- but then....I lost my mojo. Along with losing my mojo I lost my success, I gained back all but approximately 20 of the pounds I had lost. I was back to being short of breath, the fat mom, the mom who can't fit on that certain ride (just one but it drives me nuts!). I allowed myself to wallow in my self destruction for a while and then slowly, I had an epiphany. I'm worth it! If one of my kids, or my husband had a special diet requirement I would make that food; I would do anything for them- especially to keep them healthy. So why couldn't I give myself the same consideration? When I was unable to come up with an answer (there isnt one!! no matter your excuse, its just that! you have time, eating less costs less, anyone can walk, etc)I decided I would make the effort, the effort to put more into myself as well as my family. I am running a 5K on Aug 14th and I am hoping to finish in under 45 oldest son is running with me. Sure I will walk along the way when I need to BUT I will finish and that's what matters to me. I have decided that I am going to go full throttle again, in hopes of getting to my goal weight of 155!! So far I am down another 10 pounds! Go me!! UPDATE:I completed 2 5k's in August....the second just over 42 minutes!! May 19th, 2011: Today I had the Lap-Band Surgery. I am hoping to get healthy once and for all. May 23rd 278.5 Oct. I have been struggling but I feel like I am about to turn a corner....gotta keep pushing. On a happy note I rode the upside down coasters at the local amusement park so take that!! :) 1/9/12 trying to revamp and reinvigorate

    Yes I'm here... I need to update some stuff again (just did), but so far the new year has been another fresh start for me (I coasted the whole holiday season as usual) and it is going well so far this year. I hate that this is a time SO MANY people start diets with resolutions and stuff and to be a part of that, but darn it, it really is a great time to start over - no more holidays, travel, etc... just a chance to concentrate on me with less distractions (and excuses).
    How you doing?

    Hey you! Seems like you're struggling a bit like me! Baby/sleep deprivation got the better of me over this past year and bam, 55 freaking pounds came back on :-(
    I got fed up in mid August as well, but more officially restarted Nov 1st (you know, had to drag my feet just a little bit longer). I know I've had ENOUGH of this body and less than a year ago had a taste of a lighter more healthier me and I want her BACK!!!
    Finally baby is in a better sleep pattern, so deprivation be damned. It's time for me... for us! We have to make us a priority again.
