This is my third time coming back to spark people. I know that there are a lot of people here to offer support and encouragement. Reason being for this being my third time here is all on my own shoulders, my own lack of willingness to change, my own lack of discipline and my own lack of confidence. I am going to succeed this time. I need to keep telling myself that and quit giving up.

I went through quite a bit in the last year and have put on even more weight than I was at during my last attempt. I am now at 289lbs. Wow that is really hard typing that out for everyone to see! LOL I have set a goal of being at 200 pounds by January 25, 2012. I will continue to refine my goals as I go along. In the past I have set only a long term goal of "I want to be such and such weight". I think that I need to go about this a different way this time. Maybe a goal of 10 pounds here then 10 pounds the for the next goal. 200 pounds is not my final goal that I want to reach. But I think that it may be a less stressful goal to get to instead of looking at the big picture number. At this point I can't even say what number I want to end with, other than somewhere around 150.

I need all the support I can get! I am not going to be telling anyone at home what I am trying to do. I have found in the past that I feel like I get a lack of support or encouragement from home. Not that I don't think I would get support eventually, but because my husband doesn't know how to encourage I guess.

I have been setting horrible examples for my children when it comes to eating habits and the lack of activity. Not only do I want to do this for myself but I want to do this just as much for my girls.

I will come on and put updates on my journey. I will probably only weigh myself once a week or every two weeks, as in the past I have figured out that I am a scale junky. Maybe that is part of my problem in the past, not seeing enough of a difference and giving up, who knows.
