100 lb. Club - My "new year" resolution!!!

View Full Version : My "new year" resolution!!!

So, I turned 37 yesterday and realized it's been 10 years since I started gaining this weight. Ten years ago, I was 27 and 150 pounds -- I can't even visualize it any more, how sad!!!

But, I'm making this my "new year" resolution -- to turn 38 at least 50 lbs lighter and so much happier!! Who needs a January 1st to start over -- any day is a good day!!!

I have a plan -- cutting out sugar, more water, my kid's are both in school starting next week (at least for a few hours, the little guy is in preschool) so I know have no excuses to not exercise. I meet with my doctor the end of the month to get a referral to a counselor who specializes in eating disorders and I'm finally ready to take care of me, instead of everyone else.

I want to make this positive, not like punishment. My life hasn't stopped just because I let myself go -- little steps -- a little make-up, some nicer clothes (burn the sweats!!) and I'll be on my way :D Wish me luck!!

Good for you, Shelby!

Sounds like you know exactly what you want and what you need to achieve it, so you're already a success!

Best of Luck to you Shelby!

What a great plan. You can do it and you're right why wait until Jan 1.

I started my journey the day after my birthday! It's a great place to start. I know I didn't want to let another year go by and not make any progress on this weight thing. Hopefully, we'll both be celebrating much lighter birthdays next year!

Hey there birthday girl. What could possibly be a better gift to ones self then that of a healthier and more fit and active and therefore, happier self? Nothing I could think of.

I hear some excitement in your post. And that's a great thing. It IS exciting to think about what staying with a healthy eating and exercise plan can bring about. And all the wonderful changes it can make to your life.

I just KNOW this is going to be your year. Just think of the possibilities!!!!
Ahhhh.... Good luck Shelby. I'm excited for you, cause I know you can do this. I just know it. :hug:

Nah, you don't need luck--you've got a plan, which is a lot better than luck! Go for it!

Good luck Shelby, your plan sounds great! And, for the record, I second the idea of burning the sweats. Nothing will make a woman feel more frumpy than a pair of nasty old sweats.
