I'm going to talk about weight.

I weigh 50 lbs heavier than when I met my husband 10 years ago. 50 lbs. I'm carrying a feed sack around that I wasn't carrying 10 years ago.

I've had back surgery .. and I'm UNCOMFORTABLE. My back hurts, my knees hurt, I have NO energy. It sucks. It's also the reason I don't ride.. just too draining .. and uncomfortable.

I say over and over and over again that I need to "do something" about it, and I never do. I have always been able to eat whatever I wanted and was the SKINNY one .. until 10 years ago ...

So today, I've decided it STOPS. I've GOT to lose some weight. I can't do this anymore....

Okay.. so I've said it. I'm TAKING MY TEMPLE BACK...

(No disrespect, dba, it's a Christian thing!)

I feel you completely! I used to be so small, now not so much. I need to lose about 50-55 lbs as well. I am so embarrassed of my weight and feel ridiculous when I ride. It's been this way since I had my 6 year old, and I'm sick of it too!

For what it's worth, I support you 100%. I know I'm new here and all lol.

Thanks Ems ... I've got a plan and am determined. It won't be easy where I work .. ugh. We get all the GOOD FOOD catered in .. lol .. and I sit on my butt all day.

Of course, that is going to change. I've got two breaks and a lunch that are going to be used to move it, Move It, MOVE IT... lol

You should watch "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" I watched it and was like .....OMG. I have got to make a change. So, the hubby and I have decided to stop with processed and junk food!

Changing my diet will be a big part of it too ... I LIKE good foods, I've just gotten lazy about buying and preparing them...

You can dooo it! Kudus for acknowledging what you want to change.

I've got a metal plate in my left ankle that causes constant pain if I'm over a specific weight, and I'm working on getting below that "magic" number right now. My focus so far has been on better food choices (I often cheat at work - there is always yummy food here!) Fiance dragged me to the gym last night, and I hope to start doing some ground driving with Cash - it'll add a few more walking steps into my days while getting some muscle & power steering on my puny pony.

Like I said above, I've got to get back on my diet. It took me most of the year last year to loose that 65. I figured, I'd eat some sweets thru the holidays, get back to low carb.... NOPE! I can not get back to doing it. I want to, I NEED to, but the will power is gone. I am "good" most of the times, but others...... I am a nurse at a Family Practice Clinic, and we get breakfast and lunch brought to us EVERY FRIGGIN DAY! Dont' get me wrong, love it.. but that's the problem! I eat way more here at work, than I do at home. They dont' bring good for you stuff either! But, I foresee those lunches go away soon, with all the government changes. That will be a good thing for me.! if it's not here, I'm not hungry, but if it's here. It's an obsession, HAVE TO HAVE IT! :(

It says my pictures are too big, to resize them.... I downloaded them to the computer same as I always have. They've always downloaded fine. Don't know how to resize them.
