I currently have enough excess weight for another person to be living in my body with me...and not even a small person...135 extra pounds! I am carrying a whole other person worth of weight with me. No wonder I'm tired all the time. I don't need a CPAP, I need this weight off. I want it off.

"We have got to push ourselves out of our comfort zone. Comfort is what got us here." ~ Me

WHY I MUST TRACK: The way I explained it to a friend is true: "If we only track the parts we're proud of, we will always think we should be thin and it's just impossible and unfair and fate. Which, we both know is complete bullsh*t." It is. So, I track, and you can see it. Some days will be brag-worthy and some will not. Hoping to make the former the rule and not the exception.

All the blog posts entered for 1/31/08 are previous posts from my personal blog tagged with "The Weight", in chronological order. Anything after that is since SP...and I hope, finally...success.

I gotta say...some of those previous posts were pretty funny. So, if you have a few minutes and want a chuckle, check them out.

Any recipes you see that I have submitted...? Super easy. I don't do difficult food prep. I have a cookbook started lower on the page.

Annnnd...Still pushing. 2 steps forward and a couple back...swimming is helping.

I plan to be 145 by December 2014. My reward will be a healthy, sexy, awesome new body.

Anyhow...thanks for caring!

    Cyndi, thanks for your comment and support! I take no offense at that at all. It IS fluff! LOL

    I just wish I could get past this cold. I went to the doctor today and discovered it's more than a cold. I have bronchitis. She prescribed antibiotics so hopefully in a few days I'll be feeling better. I've been sick for 10 days already and my body is feeling pretty beat up from it.

    Thanks for your support. Let's do this!

    Hey! Saw you were in Plano Spark! I live in Richardson. I saw we had similar weight goals, so I thought I would just say hi. I hope that you are having success with Spark already. I'm slowly getting that weight off. I'm trying to exercise as much as possible and eat right. Ever need a support buddy, just give me a shout!
