Not really losing, but maintaining at least :-)

My boyfriend took this on our NYC vacation August 2007. It's one of the only full body shots I can find.

This picture was one of the ones that made me realize how heavy I really looked.

I'm 27 and I first joined SP because my weight has always fluxuated. Last year a friend my size lost 20 lbs and regained her confidence. It inspired me to lose 20 lbs myself...

Of which I promptly gained most.

So, I'm working on coming back to get it right this time... and the next.

I like feeling good and living healthily. But I'd like to look better, too. Sometimes life gets between me and healthy living, so I'm trying to teach myself the discipline to make good choices even when they aren't easy and even when other people try to dissuade me and even when I try to dissuade myself.

And, ahhhhhh-- Ani: Fierce Flawless
"there was light and then there was darkness
but there was no line in between
and asking her heart for guidance
was like pleading with a machine
cuz joy, it has its own justice
my dreams are languid and lawless
and everything bows to beauty
when it is fierce
and when it is flawless"

    Well I have faith that you'll get back on track when the time is right for you. I've definitely learned that we need to take breaks from all this tracking and logging and pushing ourselves. It's a lot of work and mentally it can wear on you.

    Thanks for the words of encouragement about the 5K!

    Thank you for stopping by. lololo My week is going good so far. I just found out that slim-fast has a carcinogen in it therefore once my stock is gone I will not be buying it any longer. I have order some Arbonne shakes which I was trying to avoid because they are more expensive but that the price you pay for good healthy products. I will stay on the shakes for while because they are working for me. I can't wait to get to 219 lbs. I want to get away from the 220's. Enough about me. How are you doing? Are you closer to your weight goal? Have you found a good work routine? emoticon

    Sooo...about my 5K this weekend...well I've been sick with a nasty cold and decided I was going to make sure I got some rest the night before my race...I took nyquil when I went to bed at 11:30 pm...and slept through my alarm waking up 30 mins late! I didn't make it to the 5K and I'm still upset about it. Although with how crappy I felt all day Saturday and into today, I wonder if I could have even ran it, it might have been a walk, but still! Grr!

    How are you doing with everything? Are you staying on track? (I'm holding you accountable! Lol)

    Hope all is well!
