You did the right thing though. Be proud of yourself. You didn't give in to the feelings you had and you openly admitted to them. This is another positive step in the way that you are trying to change yourself for the better.

Keep on pushing, keep believing and don't stop this from continuing to be a good process. You ARE capable of a lot :).

thanks everyone. we actually have those at work but never thought of buying them. im gonna pick up a box today. :D

sofar with the working out part i have been getting better. my moves are becoming more precise (which is why i love this game. it can tell if im not doing it correctly and when it comes to fast cardio moves it takes more core effort and im starting to get better!), and im burning more calories a day now. im starting to get my energy back as well and feel happier with each passing day. with how things are at work i need this positive attitude its a very stressful week this week because of inventory and we are soooo behind.

Congrats on the weight loss Chistina! I'm so ready to start exercising outdoors too, the cold weather though won't leave so far. :( What part of michigan are you in? Keep it up!

needless to say it has been a long time since i have done any posts so let me get u up to date.

well i got down in the dumps again about where i am in my life. basically my dead end job and debt and not able to be in school. these things really took a toll on my motivation to loose weight. need i say i gave up on it for a long time and gained it back and up to 235. imagaine that. well in the first week of july i had gone to florida for a vacation to meet some family down there i haven't been in touch with for a while. that was when i decided to re-invent my self. i was away from work and cleared my head on what i want to do.

i never allowed my self to do wild and crazy things because of my weight well while i was down there i said to hell with it. why should i wait until i loose this weight to start living? so i got my nose pierced, got my hair cut and colored and even went snorkeling! i was on the boat to go parasailing but the boat had a problem with the propeller slipping. at least i got my money back and free boat ride out of the deal! Even when i was on miami strip i didn't put my self down when i saw all the girls in their swim suites. now that i think about...not once did that even cross my mind.

when i got home and reality came back, i had to think what am i going to do about this job? i have been wanting to get promoted but in this drug store chain it takes luck no matter how hard you work to be seen. besides, do i really want to be in retail all my life? no! i have a talent for art and that has always made me happy. for years i have been wondering should i go for advertising or graphic design? graphic design it is! so i have been working really hard at picking up extra shifts at other stores to help me pay for my first class. which btw starts next month! also my car insurance had gone down starting next month! that means i can now afford a gym membership again! that made me so happy! today was my second day back at the gym and needless to say it felt amazing!

my first weight loss goal is to get down to 213 where i was a long time ago before life threw me some curve balls. right now i plan to go to the gym every other day. once my energy builds up on the off days i will go in for some cardio.

now that the biggest factors of my weight gain are stating to subside i'm getting my focus back on my body. hopefully now that those factors are taken cared of this time my weight loss wont seem so pointless with no results. i'm going to try to get back on here now more frequently whether or not its going good. we are all human and sometimes seeing how others struggle and over come their issues helps others as well who are going through the same thing. Since my first class starts on Sept. 23rd i plan to loose 10lbs by then. some say i should have a higher number but i'm only being realistic with my self and the past weight loss i had. If i loose more before then...hell ya bonus!

Nice to see you posting again Christina. :D A gym will definitely help with your goals. Good luck with the graphic arts school. I think your making the right decision if you like art and think that is something you would like to do. Have to follow your dreams. :D Hopefully the school isin't too expensive.

I'm trying to lose about 100 pounds. Down to 93.2 left to go. And i can't say how nice it is to get support and encouragment from everyone. It helps me tremendously. So keep posting it will help! Good luck!
