Winter clothes do hide it, but my gift to me is going to be 50lb weight loss to 130.

I am a wife and mother of 2 beautiful children. I am 39. I follow The Way, The Truth and The Life as much as a fleshy person can. I am tired of fighting this food battle, I want to win it. I want the war to be over, but I feel stuck. I take 1 step foward and 2 steps back. Life always gets in the way. I always get back on the horse, but any progress seems to easily disappear and I seem to stay in the same place. All that work turns into nothing and is soooooo frustrating. I feel like I am a dune buggie spinning it's wheels in the sand.

I will be 125-135 and a size 6/8. This time the horse I get back on is a differnet color. Being FAT feels aweful. I will make it down to my goal weight. I am not going to give up until I get there and plan on staying there. I am embarrassed to put summer clothes on. I used to be a fashion buyer and now I am having to cover my fat up. Yuck! I am going to feel and look good as I eat right and excercise. I am making excersize and diet a priority! Please help me on my journey.

    Thanks for the warm welcoming!

    I am back on track running 30-40 minutes 3 days/week and plan to increase it to 5 days. I can manage that. I know I need to ramp up the calories burned to a higher intensity, but I am trying to form the routine again.

    How do you manage set backs? I lost 10 pounds. I got sick, then put an ulcer ontop of that and gained most of the weight back and got out of the routine. I feel like I worked so hard for really nothing. I am stuck at my wieght. It is like someone keeps pushing me down. I keep getting back up, but don't end up getting where I want to be.....125 (or keeping weight off and continuing my good eating/excercising habits)

    So what I have so far is...tracking food, blogging, water and keep moving. This is working. I like doing it. I suppose I need to add motivation as well. Help me with your motivation. I would appreciate it! emoticon
