I don’t know if it’s just being let down from the excitement of planning and executing the Alumni Weekend gatherings, but I just cannot seem to pick myself up and get motivated. I’ve been sick for the past two weeks it seems. Tried to do too much too fast, but it all HAD to get done.

I have a new schedule that should afford me more time to do the things that need to be done to keep our house in order. However, all of my energy is just gone… Alas, I need to work. Catch ya later…

How much weight I want to lose: 65 in total. I don’t have a set goal for the timeframe of this contest. I will lose what God allows me to lose.

My weight history: Yo-yo my whole life. Fen Phen’ed my way down to 135 for my wedding. Up to 210 in 1998. Weigh Down’ed my way down to the 160s in ’99. Back to the 190s after that. Managed to lose weight through a pregnancy in 2005 (thanks to Gestational Diabetes), but proceeded to put on MORE weight AFTER the pregnancy.

My diet: Basic hunger/fullness based on Thin Within. I am part of a couple of Yahoo online groups, and participate in a weekly chat to discuss life the TW way.

Weaknesses? Eating. I use it to get through difficult times. Unfortunately, in my world difficult includes boredom and procrastination. But I will keep going. Perseverance is a gift, and I’m gonna use it!

ETA: My beginning weight: 195.
