I can't get over how long I have been trying to do this...
I was doing so awesome in the side picture..I got down to 197 at my lowest and now I am back up again, not all the way up but up more than I should be.

I have a million excuses, going back to college..not standing on my feet all day working, being emotionally drained but those don't matter. I have come too far to let it all slip away. I have tried so much and made little steps but I haven't been able to get back into the groove. I know that it is possible because I have been in the weight loss groove before and it worked but what I have come to realize is that even if trying dosen't bring the large results we are looking for they are still results in the right direction where as not trying at all will do nothing except let our bodies go on the way we don't want them too.

So..I am trying ..Again and I hope I keep on trying until I get to where I want to be..which is in a Bikini and on an Island with my husband taking that honey moon we never took because of the fact that I would stick out like I don't belong because I would be the only one wearing capris and tee shirts instead of a baithing suit.

My Goals:
I want to wear a cute little bikini and have a nice toned curvy figure.
I want to get real and get honest with myself and the body that I am currently posessing. I don't want to hide behind my clothes anymore. I want to be honest and face the truth of what I look like infront of the mirror and in a picture. I have thought all along that I look good for my size but the truth hurts and that is that even though I project an image to others that I am confident inside I am ashamed of my body and embarassed and I want that to stop TODAY!

My Program:
Stay under 1500 calories per day

Workout for 30 minutes at home with workout dvd three times a week.

Personal Information:
I am 29 years old from Canada. I just graduated from college, taking a program in Advertising.

I am married for 5 years this August. I have been overweight my whole life and it has held me back from being the free, fun filled adventerous woman that I am.

Other Information:
I am a T.V Box junkie.
the O.C
Dawsons Creek
One Tree Hill
Amazing Race

and I love movies too. Pretty Woman is one of my fav's.

    I don't think it ever stops being a struggle but then again what good things in life come your way easily. I'm just tired of the way I feel about myself and how uncomfortable it makes everything. I just want to be comfortable in my skin and my clothes. When I stop and think that I've been overweight since I was about 12 and I'm 28 now...that's 16 years I've spent being FAT! That's crazy and then I stop and think not only have I wasted all those years being fat and not doing anything about it but I'm not getting any younger. I want to change my body while I'm still young enough to enjoy it ya know. Just find something that helps motivate you when you want to quit and don't want to put the work into this.

    Have you checked your sodium content of what you are eating. Sodium stalls my weight loss bad. Also eating smaller meals through the day and excluding all white carbs really helped me. If I eat 1500 calories of junk (not saying that is what you are doing just saying) I'm still not going to loose anything.

    Don't worry about the extra skin. I have some but it is easily hidden by clothes. I used to be self conscious about it, but now I just see it as a battle scar and it is getting better over time. Plus also no one ever has to see it unless I want them too. Most people never know I was ever overweight.

    I really think losing the weight helped me find myself. I think I was hiding under all that weight and it helped me be me.

    Let me know if you have anymore questions.

    Hey there, thanks for the comments on my page. Us Ontarians need to stick together. We are very close in weight and it's nice to have someone close by to relate to. Keep up the good work and keep in touch.
