Well howdy all Im tudie and I have been off and on this site for almost 2 years..

I have been fighting being overweight for a lifetime like so many others. When I started at SP 2 years ago in May I had orriginally weighed 310lbs.. So tecnically I have lost 47lbs.. But I dont count the weight at my first try for this one, because I lost weight but I wasnt trying to or eating healthy.. Its in the past and its time to start fresh and new.. my starting weight this time Is 280lbs!!

I have never been the one that constantly worries about it. I have always been confident with who I am.. I just want to be healthy..
And with my other problems I am tiard of being so tiard, and out of shape.. I just want to be able to see my feet again...lol I have been wondering what kinda shoes I bought myself last time...lol

I think I have realistic goals and want to give it, not just my best shot.. I want to be committed to this.. but I think I get lazy sometimes, being overweight seems to be a whole body mind experiance.. I am tiard of lookin in the mirror and not liking what I see...

So here I am doing my thing, I came to the realization that all movement no matter how small counts in the end.. Our bodies are designed for movement... So if you do anything that you dont normally do.. It counts... Turn the radio on when you cook dinner or wash dishes... and Dance... Just being alive is worth dancing for....

I know there are some of us starting our journey out there that cant move much because of health reasons..... Move in the chair.. lift your arms..up and down.. Kick your legs up.... stand up sit down... every little thing counts.... Look at it this way... Its something you didnt do yesturday... Today is the day...
And believe it or not housework counts too.. here is an article.. about it

I want to loose weight to feel better

Finding your self is always a treat I have been wasting alot of time blaming myself for the bad things that have happened in my life that I had no control and worrying over the things I cant change and people who refuse to also..
Its time for me to worry about me...

Work on water drinking instead of Soda!

Im a married student from Norfolk Va.

I also take care of my convelecent mother in law.

Other Information:
God is..
The joy felt when you hear a child's first tears....
He is the music in the laughter of a child in grandma's ears,
even after many tears have gone by,
How joyous that laughter,
as it dances across our minds.
The innocence of love's first kiss....
The sorrow of loves last journey, the tears of its final goodby.
God is the wind that blows life accross our eyes...
He is the light of truth that blinds us sometimes...
God is the wonder when you look to the stars,
He is the awe of realising just how small we are.
God was on the mountain as you ascended there,
although you wondered where you'd find the air....
He wispers softly in the morning breeze.
Grasping your heart softly,
making your fear release...

God is Patience, he is grace, he is the humility that we all must face.
