I'm better now

I was feeling a little discouraged this week! I had a "bad day" and have been trying to make up for it the last few. Too much stress and feeling a bit overwhelmed in the process. Looking like we are all going to be facing a nasty bout with a stomach virus not to mention the dreaded cold we've been fighting back and forth for the last three weeks! I read your comments and was so uplifted. Thank you so much. Made my day.

So, here goes. I can't believe I'm doing this. Aside from a bikini, this is basically one of my most un-flattering outfits. But, hey, that's the point, right? Don't be too can look like me if you eat whatever you want whenever you want! ;)

Well, it's discouraging to look at, but here is the dreaded number. I've decided it's just that, a number. It's no longer (in my self reflection) going to define who I am. So, I'm letting it all go today.

Starting Weight: 224
Current Weight: 219
Goal Weight: 150
Started counting carbs-not Atkins (watching salt, sugar & fat): January 6th

I'd be happy to post what I'm doing (diet-wise) for any that are interested. I'm basically just doing a diabetic diet b/c that is something that I am so fearful of. We have such a family history of it and with being "borderline" diabetic during pregnancy, I'm pretty much going to get's just a matter of when. With good diet and exercise I can stave it off for another 14 + years.

Thanks for your words of encouragement. I'm so excited to get going. I meet with my nutritionist on February's hoping she will be happy to see a "little less" of me!

Getting Ready for Weigh-In Wednesday

Well, I know it's kind of dead on here right now, but I'm getting ready to "amp" it up. I'm going to commit to posting my weight and pictures (not bikini, haha) weekly in an on-going series I'll call Weigh-In Wednesdays. I was inspired by the weight loss of a woman (Jen) featured on Rachael Ray. Did you see it?

I'm thinking this will for sure be a process for the next year. (at least) I'm hoping I can lose the weight in that time. Thanks for your support.
