Yep, I'm still alive!

Goodness, it has been a while since I last posted.  I thought of just wiping everything and starting over, but I have some pretty awesome posts and motivational things on this blog, so I decided that I will just start over, but keep the posts!  My life has changed quite a bit this last year, I lost my 'full' time job and had to find a new one (owner retired and closed his location) I do like my new job, and it's still working with animals.  I dabbled in selling Park Lane Jewelry for a while, but because of my introverted personality and anxiety issues, I decided it wasn't for me at this time.  I am still battling the battle of the bulge and I would love NOTHING more than to get rid of it.  I am sick of splitting my scrub pants because of my thunder thighs, sick of being a chunky monkey, sick of being out of shape, sick of not having any 2012 it is!  I am going to watch what I eat portion wise, and try to drink more water than I normally do....I am a Diet Coke addict!  I drink AT LEAST a 2 liter per day...and would like to exchange that for water.  My goal by the end of 2012, is to lost at least 50#, which is about 1# a week, which isn't 'out of range' if I focus right.

My husband just recently had a couple of surgeries and the Dr really lectured him on his weight as well so we are definitely both going to be on this journey.  Stay tuned for updates, have to go finish 'FLYing' as we have company coming over tomorrow.  Have a great night!

My starting weight 233.4#  My 'goal' is 150# (we will see how I feel/look when I get there), but for now I am working to about 175#  I haven't been under 200# in a LONG LONG time (about 6 or 7 years for longer than about 2 days lol), so I am super psyched for this goal and I KNOW I can do it!
