Health & Fitness Goals: Define the New You in 2013

Last month, I took part in a fun and motivating video/photo project with Big Train. Read all about it, enter their giveaway, and check out the video...



I love the song they chose. It was a rainy gray day in Southern California but you wouldn't know it. It was very motivating, everyone sharing a goal for the year.

What's your 2013 health and fitness goal?

You look great Shell! I HATE exercise of all kinds. It's been a huge struggle all my life. But.. my teenager daughter got me trying out the Wii Fit. We're having fun and it's a start!

This triggers many many memories for me. I've been severely over weight since I was a child, so I went through both elementary school and high school overweight. I can recall many incidences of kids in higher grades spitting on my shoes, mooing, making "boom boom" noises as I walk down the hall to my next class, pointing at me and making faces, playing tricks on me, asking me questions that are mean and hurtful. I became a self mutilator and with that I always had to wear long sleeves, and then got made fun of for doing that when it was warmer months. I sort of turned into I guess you'd call it a "goth" during high school and got a lot of grief from being that way, too. I thought the black was slimming but it was just also the type of music and whatnot I was into. I don't think the grief from other kids turned me to dress in such a way but it's just the things I like. I guess an "emo" lol. I don't know. But I recall so much hate and anguish. I wanted to die!!

My goal is to accomplish the steps my insurance company is requesting before they will approve my WLS.

I was one of the lucky ones I suppose. My insurance company only required 3 months of nutrition classes, a psych evaluation, and a EGD before approving my surgery. I've been hearing so many stories of people jumping through ridiculous hoops, and still being denied. I'm down 27 pounds and 19 inches in 1 month. My goal this year is to continue towards my goal weight.... And also help my baby sister with her weight loss struggle. Her insurance company is going to fight her the whole way... I can't stand seeing the pain in her eyes as I lose weight... And she stays the exact same. Its hard for me to be happy when she is so sad. Prayers to everyone struggling.
