For the first time in my life I'm really serious about losing weight and I'm not going to fail this time. NO EXCUSES!!

I'm a waitress so I'm around really great tasting food all day long :( It's a horrible feeling, watching people eat fries and desert and know that I can't eat that stuff anymore. I starting working at 16 and I'm still at the same place almost 7 years later.. and when I started I was about 180 lbs. 7 years later and 70 lbs heavier I have to stop this destructive behavior.

I'm so sick of being in so much pain because I'm overweight. I'm 22 years old and I can't hardly walk when I get home from work everyday. But since I've been dieting I have alot more energy.. which is awesome!!

My Goals:
One of my goals is to lose 50 lbs. by April 1st.
And to be a size 14 again. For some that may seem huge but I havn't been a size 14 since I was 15.

My Program:
I go to a diet doctor (DR. CHOU) and I love him because he gives you these awesome appetite suppresant pills that make you feel full and speed up your metabolism. And the diet is 3 meals a day with no skipping, lots of fruits, veggies and proteins, and one carb with each meal. I eat about 1200 calories a day and it's really hard because I'm a server, so I'm around really good food all day long! Since I'm on my feet walking all day long it's really hard for me to exercise because not only am I tired but I'm so sore by the time I get home! But I'm trying!

Personal Information:
My name is Trisha Peterson. I've been married to my awesome husband for 3 Years. No kids yet but we have a Jack Russel Terrier named Bogart.

Other Information:
I love to camp and scrapbook. I also love to rollerblade and am looking forward to being able to next summer in shorts!

    I noticed you left some comments on my page, I doubt I ever respond it.

    I have been MIA and gaining weight..I totally stopped using sparkpeople for a long time. I got so wrapped up in my life and stopped logging in a dieting. But I had enough I feel crappy and I need to get back on track. I went shopping today because nothing fits ofcourse, only to find out I'm no longer a size 14 which I hated being and now im some over in the 18s. sigh*.

    Well I'm going to try my best to get back on track and loose weight, I hope to keep in touch with you as well..

    How is your progress going?..I hope we can support each other on this weghtloss battle and be sparkpeople friends..

    I hear you with the motivation thing. I am still going strong but I feel like I am going to fail any time now. But I won't let that happen...I think of even how I was 8 1/2 pounds bigger and I was miserable. Now I have hope and that feels really good. You can do this and so can I! You have already lost 15 pounds, don't turn back now!!! :)

    You go girl! Look at how well you are doing! :D I hear you on the wearing shorts thing...I'm sick of hiding my thunder thighs hehehehe. I also have not been a size 14 since I was 15...I would like to at least live some of my youth skinny. Keep up the good work!
