Fall 5% Challenge

Sunday, September 26, 2010

I am hoping that this will be the springboard that I need to start off my overall weight loss goal.

When I started Spark I weighed I think 297 in Aug '07. A year later I hit my highest weight ever breaking the 300 pound mark of 311 in Nov. '08. Then to make things worse I was diagnosed with high cholesterol in Oct '09.

I really do not want to be this overweight. I enjoy going to amusement parks and riding all the rides. I have not had a point yet where I have not been able to ride all the rides but also don't want that anxiety. The point to this is that we did not go this year and that may be the biggest reason that I did not suggest we go. Is that fear of being told I cannot and then the feeling holding everyone else back.

    One of my overall goals is to be able to ride rides again. Last time I rode a ride I was terrified.. not that the rise was scarry in itself, but it felt like it was swinging alot more then it should have due to my weight.. all I was thinking was this thing is gonna become disconnected .. never rode again.
    Was sad since my son wanted me to go on rides with him

    I know what you mean about rides - I am never sure so I often just don't go on the rides - I felt that way even at Nascar last year - I just didn't want to be uncomfortable or embarrassed. I am ready for this fall challenge as well - so far it got me dancing yesterday and out walking today!! Glad to have you on the cats team - I am sure we can do this together!
