Took me forever to do this!
Its a jersey type material, with a wide waist band, and circular cut so that it swishes and spins out when I walk. Felt a bit self conscious wearing it for the first time yesterday since I haven’t worn a skirt in forever, but with this heat lately, it was a nice change from capris that are too big for me now.

How I did it: My husband and I have eliminated the junk food from the house, you can't eat whats not there! I bought My Fitness coach for Wii, and Wii fit plus with the balance board. I hated exercising but now I find it pumps me up afterwards. I also lift light weights. I was counting calories, but honestly it was making me insane. I cut back calories too far, which made me so hungry I couldn't even sleep, and I was hungr… Read how I did it…
How I did it: Well I had to drag myself to an 8:15am appointment on a Saturday because thats all my hairdresser had available. I brought in 4 pictures of a haircut I had before that I loved. What I ended up with does NOT resemble it at all. I kept thinking she would cut more, or it was going to change shape, but it didn't. Its basically a blunt style bob, curled under at the ends, and I have a very round face. I can't wait… Read how I did it…
How I did it: I have panic disorder with agoraphobia, with the dentist being one of my worst phobias ever...to the point, that for the consulation I needed an ativan just to stand it. I had at least 8 cavities, needed a serious deep cleaning, and had to have a tooth removed. It was decided I would be put out so everything could be done in one shot.

Have been using My Fitness Pal, the database of about every food you can think of makes it really easy.
I’m not 100% sure of my start weight, as I was wearing clothes -but it sure was enough to kick my butt in gear to make a major lifestyle change. Cut out the junk food, its a pure treat now, not a habit. When I stepped on the scale that day in late January, it said 114kg (251.3lbs!!!) I was kinda horrified. I’ve been heavy my entire life, but my heaviest was 256, and I couldn’t believe I’d let myself get back there again. I’m now down to 238.4 (in my skivvies! ;). So 2 more pounds to go!
My first goal is to lose 10% of my body weight by June 21st, the start of summer. From the rate I’ve been losing, I may very well hit that goal by April though! I am eating roughly 1000 calories less then I’m burning, next step though is the dreaded exercise. Still need to find and stick to a workout plan!
