I Can't Believe I'm Putting This Out There

I am soooo tired of being fat! I've started (and stopped, shortly thereafter) Weight Watchers/working out/eating healthier MANY times recently. I am DONE. I'm putting it ALL out there....weight NUMBERS (GASP!) and that I will be so embarrassed by them that I WILL make a change. Sort of an accountability, if you will.

Okay. Don't faint & fall out. I'm too fat to pick you up off the floor!

My heaviest ever was 219, when I delivered Sara in September 2007.
My lowest ever was 152, in the summer of 2006.
I was 212 when I got pregnant with June, and 215 when I delivered.
My current weight is 203.5.
My goal is 140.
That means I am 11.5 pounds down and have 63.5 pounds to go.
Oh, I'm currently a loose 18, tight 16.

I'd appreciate any healthy or WW friendly recipes you love! I will be doing this without access to the gym -- except for the occasional Friday night/weekend trip to the gym on post, where it's free. I am armed with a yoga DVD, a pilates DVD, and the 30 Day Shred DVD. And a road where I can walk.

I am ONLY cooking WW recipes or healthy versions of old favorites. I want this to be a total makeover of how we eat. I don't want my girls growing up thinking a Coke and a PopTart for breakfast is okay!

Wish me luck!

Lora took the words right out of my mouth:


I completely believe you can do it! As someone who's always battling her weight, I have complete faith in you! One thing that ALWAYS helps me? Drinking water. Lots. of Water. Lots. Your body will love you for it. Promise!

All the best for you as you do this.

Look up great recipes from cooking Light.

Make sure that you drink water like it is going out of style. A little lemon juice always sparks it up a bit.

YAY TO YOU for being so honest and finally making a change!

I know all about where you are, we started at about the same! So I've been there!
I can tell you blogging really helped me keep going, I know it will help you too.

Congrats on deciding to turn your life around... it will be the best decision you ever made!
