Weight Loss Made Fun

In my previous post, I had mentioned how I have very little will power and need to be held accountable when it comes to weight loss. To make the whole weight loss process a little bit more entertaining I'm signing up for two {2} free online weight loss challenges. These challenges can be found at Plus Size Bloggers & Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans.

Let me know if you are currently participating in any weight loss challenge!

The Long Journey Ahead

Up and down, up and down, up and now. This is how I would describe my weight over the years. I've never been the skinny chick, but I've never been the biggest girl in the room...until now. Back in 1998, I was 17 years old, a freshman in college and weighed in at 123 lbs. Fast forward almost 11 years and it's a whole different story. I now weigh 200 lbs, perhaps a little bit more.

I never in my wildest dreams thought I would weigh this. I blame it on my lack of self control when it comes to making the right eating choices and on my unstable relationship with the gym.

When I got pregnant in 2008 and had my child in 2009, I vowed to start controlling my eating portions and start hitting the gym or doing an at-home exercise DVD. I started in the right direction and 6 months later I was in a car accident which led me immobile for quite some time. During this time I lost weight because I didn't eat and I didn't eat because I was depressed. Although I'm not depressed anymore, I try to avoid mirrors as much as I can because I truly can't deal with the image of my big, jiggly, wiggly body.

With this initial post I vow to get back on track to getting healthy, fit and looking good in a pair of jeans. With this blog, I hope to feel accountable towards any person who can relate to what I am going through.
