How life's little dramas play out depends on how you set the stage.

"Ever tried? Ever failed? No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better."
--Samuel Beckett

So this is how it's gonna be huh? A constant struggle...another on again off again relationship? Here's the news...I am bigger than this. I am better than this. I may be weak sometimes. I may fail but I have learned from a young age to dust it off and start all over again. Am I longing for the day that all this hard work pays off? You betcha!!! Am I yearning for all the benefits of a healthier and slimmer life? Absolutely. Will I fall of the wagon again...I hope not but if I do I will be right back. It's the way it's going to be.
I've had some recent tragedies in my life and I let it get me down...I let it take me over and from that I have learned a lot. So here I am. Back again and playing catch-up from letting myself slip. I have learned from that too. This time I only gained some of the weight was a much better fail than the last time when I gained it all back plus. It may be a long process but it won't get me down. One day this will all pay off.

Member Since: 3/31/2008

Fitness Minutes: 28,522

My Goals:
I just want to be the person on the outside that I feel that I am on the inside. I want to be healthy and have energy. I want to join a program like this and actually stick to it.

My Program:
I am going to use all the knowledge that I have gained about myself in my past weight loss missions to make this work. My biggest challenge is going to be finding motivation to stick to an exercise program!

Personal Information:
Hi I'm Elisha...everyone (even my parents) calls me Lish. I'm from Idaho and ummm....I'm a gemini.

Other Information:
I love music and am a classically trained vocalist although at this time I am taking a break from that scene. I love movies. I know that there is so much more to say about myself but I seem to be drawing a blank.

    I hear ya on lack of enthusiasm this time around. For me it really is a "I can't stand to be this disgusting" almost angry motivation...but definitely not excitement. For right now I am just focusing on the first 50 lbs. If I lose 2 lbs a week I can have that off by Christmas. I am getting up each day and making better choices and trying to workout...since I have been such a bum that seems to be enough to get me 2 lbs. I will tighten up as needed because that will soon not be enough. But I am hoping the first 10 lbs will motivate me to go to the next level. Let me know what I can be doing to support you:)

    Dude...I'm back. Again. I can't even bring myself to post my ticker...shameful! So glad to see you are still checking in here. I love having your support:) I don't have a game plan yet, right now I am making myself check in each day and am going from there. If nothing else, maybe we will get to catch up better than we do on the phone!!

    Yeah, I am so glad you are back too!! I checked your page when I was redoing mine the other day and could tell you hadn't been here in awhile. I was going to call you up and beg you to get back at it with me. We don't get much phone time so it would be nice to have somewhere to chat regularly. Plus, you are my favorite weight loss buddy:) One of these days, we WILL get there together! Now I just have to keep from getting knocked up emoticon I am waiting until Isaiah is two months to start watching what I eat and exercising which is in about two and a half weeks. Trying to keep my milk supply up. Then when I am done nursing him all together I am going to hit it hard and start counting calories again.
    Anyway, now that I have left a novel on your page, I will sign out:) So good to be chatting at you though:)
