Since 2012 wasn't what I wanted for myself with my weight loss journey I plan on making 2013 10x better.

 I plan on losing the last 60ish lbs to finally reach my goal 130 lbs. I plan on being a much happier person, since I know that when I'm happy I have a easier time losing the weight. I will continue to see my therapist to reach that goal to being happy.

This year I plan on getting out of my house more often than just going to the commissary or to the gym. I will find something to occupy my time during the day, sitting at home with the four walls closing in isn't the way that I want to live my life. I feel like I have been forgotten by the people in my life...its like the saying "Out of sight, out of mind" really is playing out in my family. But it's up to me to make myself happy, not the other way around.

This year I plan on taking my family on a vacation, not sure where yet, but we need to get away from this city for a week or two. Along with a mini vacation for just Tyler and I, which I'm working on for sometime in February. 

This year I plan on working on making my marriage stronger than it has been in the past and being a better mother to my two wonderful kids. They are getting older and before long they will be out of the house and on their own. I want to have a better relationship with them than I have with my own mother. To let them know that they matter to me no matter what happens in their lives or mine.

This year I plan on being more financially responsible. Again this comes to better my marriage and to teach my kids more about handling money so they will be better off when they are on their own. 

But most of all I plan on putting myself first so that I can reach all these goals. There may be some out there that say that it's selfish of me to say I putting myself first but when you struggle to lose weight it's what has to been done, at least for me. But I'm not saying that by putting myself first that I will completely forgo my husband and kids because they are apart of this process too. 

So here's to making 2013 the best it can be!!!

Random thought of the day: The other day Tyler and I were talking in the car on the way to dinner and he brought up the fact that I'm turning 35 on my next birthday. I guess that is the magical number for a woman to turn into a cougar and since I'm older than he is I become on that day. So here's to all my fellow cougars....RAWR!! (said like ray-er, lol)

That Ugly Fat Girl?

So I was taking a look at my past blogs the other day and I came across the blog I wrote back in April that showed my weight loss journey in pictures. And all I can say is OMG! That starting picture is so freaking horrendous. I can't believe that I actually thought I looked pretty weighing that much. I can't believe that my husband actually found me attractive then. And I can honestly say that I was not one of the pretty fat girls...I was just plain fat and ugly. Its funny what lies one's self will tell them to help them feel good about themselves. I look at myself then and then I look at myself now and can't even comprehend that they are the same person. I feel like I'm a completely different person now. I AM a completely different person now. 

But every once in a while I still look at myself I still see a fat, overweight, ugly person. Like today, I know I had just rocked it on the treadmill doing sprint intervals (definitely going to add that to my workout plan mo…

2014 Update

It's been a while since I wrote a blog...almost a year in fact...

I have struggled so much with my weight over the last couple of years. I went from about 145 lbs up to 200 lbs. I'm back down in the 190's but so upset since I was so happy when I was in the 140s. I need to tighten my belt, for lack of better words, and get back to watching my diet and really and truly get back to counting calories since I know that works for me. 

What really is heart breaking for me is going up in size in clothing. I went from wearing a size 8 to a 14, now back down to 12. I hate buying new clothes when I ones I love just sitting in my closet now being worn.

The good thing this all is that I truly never gave up working out. I might have not been doing it at the intensity that I was in the past but that has change about 5 months ago. Five months ago I found CrossFit and fell in love. I have found through this program that it is very humbling and empowering. I have done more things that I have n…
