TX, United States
I am a 39 yr. old stay at home mom to 3 girls ages 10, 9 and 7. My goal is to be fit by 40! I want to lead a healthier lifestyle. I was banded on 4/5/2011. I tend to be a bit on the sarcastic and cynical side. I love to read, hate to excersise (but am learning to tolerate it!), love to shop and want to smack anyone who is a size 2 (not really!). I am learning to work with my band and my new self one day at a time!

Game On!

Something Vicky at My Shrinking Belly said really hit home for me.

I am right at 190 now.  190.2 to be exact.  And I am comfortable here.  People are amazed by my success.  My health has not been this good in 15 years.  I think I look pretty darn good.  But am I willing to settle here?  When I only have 15 lbs. to my big goal? 

I did not have LB to settle.  I had it to gain control of an aspect of my life that lacked any discipline.  It was a last chance effort to get my health back on track.  This for me is the last resort. 

So, am I going to let the Christmas cookies win?  Let the chocolate and candy control me?

No.  I am not.  I will not.  I am stronger than food.  It will not win this time.

So thanks, Vicky, for helping me see it is not acceptable to settle here at 190. 

And to food, I say...............Game on!  I am stronger than you.


  1. You go girl! I'm with you, food is not gonna win.

  2. Go get 'em girl!!!

    You can do it!!!!

  3. I'm at the same place in my journey. I am very "comfortable" in my skin now. But i'm still 30 lbs away from my ultimate goal, so I need to get back at it!

  4. Yep, similar situation here. I decided two weeks ago though that I didn't get LB to settle at 190 - 185 etc. I want to get to my goal of 145. And I will. We'll do it together!!

  5. I think it must be the holidays- because many of us are fighting ourselves right now. We can get this back on track and we will because we are worth it.

  6. It took a long time before I realized there isn't and endpoint. It's something we will do for the rest of our lives. Keep on working this weightloss thing. Sometimes breaks are allowed though. My philosophy is Keep on trying--Never give up!
