Edit: January 4, 2021 Been a while since I've been here and trying it again. Covid was brutal on my weight, gained over 30lbs, but working with a buddy now to reach our goals. 100th time's the charm. Lol Edit: September 19, 2019 Don't know if I can keep riding this rollercoaster. Something has to give. Not sure what it will be yet. *sigh* Up and down, up and down, up and up and up...... this has been me for the last 20 years. I'm sincerely hoping that I can stick with the lifestyle changes this time, and keep my emotional, and self-destructive, behaviours at bay. I've tried: HerbalLife, Weight Watchers, Curves, motivational notes all over the house, Jenny Craig, a YMCA membership..... The only thing that gave me visoble results was Jenny Craig, however it was expensive and didn't stay off long term. I have been: teased, assaulted, insulted, ripped apart, gossiped about, and had a failed marriage because of my weight. Now, finally, I am at a point in my life where I have a good job with good coworkers, I have two awesome boys, I have an amazingly supportive partner, a huge love of all things Disney and travel, and now I say "It's my time, and I'm worth every moment." This is for me because I deserve it and I'm worth it, and I will do it. Don't believe me? Just watch. # foundmyspark *EDIT* August 25, 2018 After the sudden and totally unexpected loss of my Mum in March, I completely reverted to my comfort foods and habits. Probably back up about 30 lbs and I'm not happy with it, but it is what it is. I'm trying to convince myself that I'm still going to be okay, and I can still attain my goals. This is not easy but I just hired a personal trainer, despite the cost, so I'm trying again. I just want to feel better. Nothing feels right anymore. *UPDATE* October 30, 2018 Finally clawing my way back out of the mud of depression, but haven't given up! Still with my trainer, still on my program, and still worth it. I can only hope that the hardest parts are behind and it's only up from here.

Fitness Minutes: 11,910

My Goals:
Find my clarity and health again. Not so much about losing weight as gaining strength and endurance. My weight has been fluctuating down with slight ups, but my body shape and size have been slowly changing, defining, and compressing. I can feel my conditioning coming up, and my body becoming stronger, while my pants and bras aren't fitting so well, and in some cases are comically baggy. lol

My Program:
High protein, low fat, low carb. Lots of meat and veggies and weight training twice a week. Have grown to enjoy my coffee with stevia, which was a hard switch, but since coming off sugar I don't crave it anymore.

    Yes, they glued those wires, and have washed my hair twice before I go it all out. I have NOT been told that I need a CPap machine yet. That is why I am waiting for the results, but from what the Sleep Therapist said, I probably will. So not looking ahead yet.
