I'm a now 25 year old student, I grew up in Venezuela, and came here about 6 years ago. When I came I weighed about 114 lbs. and I remember going to the doctor once about a year after and weighing in 119 and saying to the nurse that I was actually over my weight, and her pretty much laughing in my face, saying I was crazy and that I was fine... now I'm weighing at 144, well, 142.2 as of this morning : ) I blame a few things, aside of myself of course. While in Venezuela I rarely ate junk food, always good, always healthy and walked everywhere! and worked out 5 days a week! when I came here I didn't have anywhere to work out, did a little jogging but then moved, and this isn't the best area so I don't like risking it. College stress, and personal issues, including my best friend's death all contributed to a long lived depression that ended in falling grades, me gaining weight and getting more depressed because of it : ( which is a never ending cycle and am sick of it. I am now in between in a size 10 and denying to buy at any cost a size 12, 10 still fits damn it. I started at 3-4, then 4-5 and so on. I'm sick of it. I decided to loose weight and I'm going to freaking do it. I already tried atkins and south beach and I lost about 10 lbs, but gained 8 back, so that sucked. I heard about this on tyra and it seemed good, so far I like it. In any way I have to loose the weight before the trip! That's my goal! if I can get back to 117 by then that would be awesome!!!! Wish me luck!!!!

    Hi Bless, I've been so busy between work, school, and working out that I have no time for anything else right now, but I wanted to let you know that I'm thinking about ya!

    Hi Blessfull! Sorry for not being more active, myself! We've had so much going on and I've been really bad about logging my food and exercise. Then yesterday, I went completely off my diet and won't even tell you the fast food frenzy I had. I got to the grocery store today for some fresh fruit and wholesome veggies and I'm trying to be back on track. In other words, you are not alone. I cannot get the stinking scale to move (well, besides the fact of eating what I shouldn't days) and I am frustrated, too. Not sure what I should do next, but get back to doing what worked. Actually, this is the lightest weight I've been in some time, so that is good. Still, I'd like to get down to my goal. This month hasn't been kind to me at all.
    So, we are in this together, so let's get back on our plan, what do you say? emoticon emoticon

    Hiya Bless, You are doing great! Sorry I haven't been very sociable the last few days- my allergies are in overdrive! My head has been constantly pounding, and I can't even see my eyes hurt so bad. Hope you have a great day!

    Thanks, Blessfull! I was really freaked out about this weight gain and this morning, I thought "what the heck, why am I eating cereal every morning, when I really want this cookie right here in front of me?" And you know what? I ate the cookie. Then I was really upset with myself. So, I sat down, got calm and realized, okay, I screwed up and acted like a child with the cookie thing and I don't have to screw up the rest of my day and the rest of my healthy living plan. I am going to get it going again. I really think that some of what is going on is so much sodium on Sunday and I don't have it out of my system. I had the soup and the panini and salad with dressing! I am going to get this off. Thanks, you really made me change my head around and decide to get back on track. Tomorrow will show a better result, I'm certain! emoticon

    Yes, I'm doing well with the packing. Finally. It was like a switch in my mind. We have so many "things" and it really hampered my ability to pack up. We decided to take very little with us, but it is difficult to give up some of it. Silliness, really. So, I think I've gotten over it and am making progress.
    Yes, I'm happy I went down a little, but I know that I'm not working out like I should or like I want to do, so today, I'm back to that! When I see 128 on my scale I will be so happy and I know it can happen any day now.
    Definitely, I want to get to 115. For most of my life I weighed under 110, which at the time, I thought was fine. Now, I think it was too thin. So, for me it is 115. I'm aiming and I'm going to get there! Let's gooooo! emoticon
