I?ll start off with a quick story about myself. My name is Sarah and approx 13 years ago I used to weigh almost 200lbs. I ended up losing about 50 lbs and then decided to do a bodybuilding competition in 2000. I have always loved lifting weights and used to read Flex magazine and covet the ladies in it. I didn?t want to take steriods but I wanted to be buff (naturally). I placed 1st in my first competition and 3rd in my 2nd competion. The problem was that I have always binged and closet ate. After my 2nd competition, I went a little crazy and binged and went out of control. Fast forward...had a family and now I am back upto 190lbs!!!! What happened? Over the past couple of years I have always "tried" to loose the weight but things stayed the same because I wasn?t trying at all. I would do good for a couple of days and then resort back to my old ways.
My wake-up call came recently when I saw Christmas photos of myself, my largest pair of pants is getting too tight and I laid on my daughters bed and the boxspring and matress fell to the ground! I?ve had enough?I know what to do but now I need to apply it and stick to it. I saw this website address in Oxygen magazine and decided to take a look. I am going to blog everyday (when possible). I have made the decision to change and I am giving myself a date?June 1, 2009. I want to fit into this awesome pair of pants that I bought 3 years ago (still has the tags on it).
I did it before and I will do it again!
