How long have you been on WW/Flex: i was on WW from sep. 07-feb 08 and lost about 40 lbs. then lost another 10 on my own. then lost another 10 on the SBD, and gained like 6 of those back. so i'm going back to what i know works haha. i'm starting today but signing up for meetings this week.
How much weight do you hope to lose: roughly 45 pounds.
What do you do for exercise: go to the gym usually. i'm gonna try to go for walks and i'm definitely going to be getting out of the house more this summer (six flags, biking, etc etc) so that'll help.
What foods help you stay OP: sugar free jello (cos every diet needs a little wiggle room), crystal lite, and WW friendly mac n cheese recipes. om nom nom.
Why do you think you'll be successful this time: because i spent the past two years building my confidence from the ground up. i actually have friends now, i actually have a life, i actually believe in myself, i actually have a fantastic support system, and i actually think i'm OK looking for the first time in my life. i'm just a little overweight. i'm so close to being there i can taste it... i'm ready to be thin for the first time in my life. also, i have my eye on a few really awesome boys haha sooo, that's definitely a little motivation.
What is the biggest obstacle between you and success: losing my mojo. i'm a lazy lazy girl and get distracted a lot, and procrastinate A LOT.
How will/did you overcome this obstacle: journaling, and making this a HUGE PRIORITY. instead of constantly thinking "i look fat" i'm going to think "you've lost X pounds so far, don't eff this up natalie". also talking to people about my successes/failures daily instead of just screwing up and mentally kicking myself over it.
What do you like to do for fun: drive around, hang out with friends, baking/cooking, crafting/sewing, reading, learning, watching movies, rotting my brain on the internet, shopping.
What type of music do you like best? classic rock, ska, some rap, and various pop hits from the 50's till now.
If you were on a deserted island for a month, by yourself, what 3 (only 3) items (not people) would you want with you? a laptop, unlimited water, and twinkies.
Other comments: south beach diet totally didn't work for me, i lost motivation when my boyfriend broke up with me and it went aaaaaaaaaaall bad. i'm ready to climb over this hump with your guys' help!
