In 2003, I was slapped in the face with a sad reality when I'd finally decided to step on a scale and realized that I weighed 224 pounds. I knew that I was overweight, but I'd been in total denial about how bad it had gotten. The next day, I started dieting and over the next few years, I eventually got down to 122 pounds. I'd managed to lose 102 pounds and for the most part, maintain it.
Then after purchasing a house in April 2010 and my wedding in October 2010, I somehow TOTALLY stopped watching what I ate. And exercise? Yeah, that became non-existent. Earlier this year, I attempted losing weight again, but after about 2 months, I just... stopped. Again.
Well, I realized the other day that I can't get my wedding ring off and I'm up to 171 pounds as of September 2nd 2012. ACK!! Half my progress is wiped out, but I'm NOT letting it get any worse than that! I've done it once and I can do it again! Once again, goal weight, 120!

My Program:
I found that I stay on plan when I track my food psychotically and weigh myself every day. So that's what I'm doing! And I've started running (ok, I'll be honest, jogging slowly) again because I'm determined to become a runner. Hopefully soon, I'll get back my old determination to exercise in every spare moment again.

    Yeah, my Noodles is a tough old bird. The wound is at the base of his tail, so it could have been MUCH worse. I really don't like letting him outside anymore, but he drives us INSANE if we don't let him go. He's getting so crotchety with the kitten, too.

    It's hard losing any loved one. When it's a critter you've raised and loved for so many years...it's especially hard. I had a Gordon setter/Afghan hound named Marty. I rescued him at about 7-8 weeks. He only weighed maybe a pound and had some health issues. Long story short, I had intended to get him healthy and find him a home. He ended up being with me 13-1/2 years. I was lucky though. When the end came he was in my arms. It's been almost 20 years and I'm crying now just thinking of it. Marty was never a pet. I used confuse people when I talked about him. Mostly because I would forget people didn't know who he was and I tended to refer to him as my son. His ashes are still by my bedside.
