Well, I have had many ups and downs, but lately I have had "ups" (in my weight, I mean). It has put me in a very unhappy place and I don't like it. I often think about the times when I was thinner and wish I were now like I were then, but I can't live in the past now can I? So that is what has brought me here. I HAVE to do something different in my life. I HAVE to make a change. I can't be eating all the same bad foods that I know is keeping my weight up. I can't keep being lazy and not get the exercise I know I so desperately need. Here are the goals I have set for myself, whether I achieve them tomorrow, next week, next month or next year.

- I WILL CHANGE MY LIFE!! And for the better.
- I will not be lazy about it. I will exercise as much as I am physically able and I won't make excuses about it!!
- I will lose 104 lbs!!
- I will eat and CHOOSE to eat healthy.
- I will not take my body OR my life for granted, ANYMORE!!
- I will get more sleep than I have been getting.
- I will drink 8 glasses of water a day and A WHOLE LOT LESS SODA...try zero!!
- I will track my daily caloric intake so I can be more responsible with what I put in my mouth and not just say to myself, "I'll do it later".
- And last, but not least, I WILL LOVE MYSELF TO THE FULLEST!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

MY REASONS FOR LOSING WEIGHT:

~I want to be able to stand up straight without having my gut stick out and having to suck it in!
~I want to be able to bend over and tie my shoes or put on my socks without feeling like I'm out of breath!
~I want to be able to put on a pair of pants and not have to suck in my gut just to zip them up!
~I want to feel comfortable in my own skin and my own clothes again!
~I want to be able to cross my legs without having to hold my leg on with my hand or the leg of a chair or table!
~I want to be healthy!
~I want to sit down without feeling like my pants are squeezing the life out of me and have to undo them just to feel comfortable!
~I want to be able to climb a set of stairs without getting winded!
~I want to be able to buy matching bras and panty sets again (they don't make matching bras in my size)!
~I want to be able to take my pants off standing up, one leg at a time without almost falling over!
~I want to be able to sit down without feeling like the Michelin Man-with all my rolls sticking out!
~I want to be able to wear a bra and not feel like I'm going to burst out of the seams!
~I want my feet and back to stop hurting from standing or walking only for a short while!
~I want to be able to just go to the store and pick clothes off the rack and not have to try them on and buy them!
~I want to be able to wear a bra without my back fat squishing out from around it and everybody being able to see it through my shirt!
~I want to feel beautiful!
