Here I go again!

April 14, 2009

"I dont know where I'm going
But, I sure know where Ive been
Hanging on the promises
In songs of yesterday
An I've made up my mind,
I aint wasting no more time
But, here I go again
Here I go again..."

Gotta love Whitesnake!

Anyhow, here I go again taking another stab at losing weight. I'm going to do it this time. I've gained and lost weight steadily for the past 9 years. I am starting off this time at 226 lbs. My highest weight ever. When I gave birth to my daughter 5 years ago, I wasn't even as heavy as I am now. What makes me think I can do it this time if I haven't been able to stick to it before you ask? Well let me tell you! I have been testing myself. First came Lent. I had to decide what I loved that I would be able to give up for 40 days to be closer to and to realize what God has done for me. I decided to give up Dt. Coke (It's the only soda I drink). I did it. It was super hard, but for 40 days I did it. I was so very proud of myself but I thought that I needed another test since it is always so hard for me to stay on track of losing weight. For the last 23 years I have been biting my nails. A terrible and nasty habit that I have never been able to break no matter how many times I have tried. When I say I bite them, I don't mean bite them a little. I bite them until they hurt and bleed and burn when water touches them. I am happy to say that it has been about two weeks since biting my nails. This is why I know that I can accomplish this next goal of mine. My goal is to lose 100 pounds! I have tried so many different ways of eating. Pills, Weight Watchers,Low Calorie, Atkins, and many many others. I have found that the best ones that work for me are low calorie and Atkins. I am choosing to go with Atkins right now.

In this blog, I will put my daily meals and my daily struggles. I will show my before, during, and after photos. I will post whatever gets me through the day! I will post happy and sad days. I will post it all!

I know I can do it this time!
