Angela is Going to Lose Weight

Last week while in my closet trying to find something to wear, I got really depressed! My biggest size of clothing felt too tight... Oh NO!! I can't bare to have to go shopping for another size UP. No WAY!

So I've kicked it into "high gear" and started a new weight-loss journey (for the ???th time). Today is DAY #3 of 84 days on the LIVE the LIFE program. I love this program because it spells out every detail for you, from every exercise to every meal with the recipes and shopping lists.

This is what I'm going to focus on for the next 3 months. NOT this blog, NOT my crafts/projects, NOT anything else that will detour me from my success. Don't worry. HEATHER has plenty of amazing ideas and inspiration to share, and keep you lurking!!

I will share my weight-loss experience... How I feel about this program I'm trying out, how I'm doing with it, how much weight I've lost, if I fail again (which I can't and won't this time), and if I succeed with flying colors (which I can and WILL)!

I am stepping out and telling all of you about my weight-loss journey, for the sake of accountability. I want to shrink about 4 sizes (which will take more than 84 days) and is my ending goal. I will not share my starting weight until I have lost at least 30 lb. (Still trying to build that trust with myself that I will see this through to the end.) Wish me luck! And I wish you the same if you are in the same boat!

  1. Good luck!

    In July 2009, I made a goal to loose 100 lbs. So far I've lost about 70 lbs. It's been a slow, but steady process.

    Don't know if this will help you, but I started at 277 lbs (that was kinda hard to say). Looking forward to getting under's getting so close.

    Way to can do it!!!

  2. OMGsh... 70lb? That is awesome! You go, girl!! Wow, you have inspired me! My goal is 70lb. Seems so far away {sigh}. I feel motivated from you. Thank you! And keep up the good work!! I wanna see your before/after pics! Way to go, lady! xo

  3. Best of luck, Angela. I know you can do this. You are beautiful and strong and smart and lovely in every way. Taking time for yourself is important to help you make the changes you want to make.

    I'm excited to see your progress.

  4. I feel your pain! I have very low will power.
    I just watched The Biggest Loser last night and was really inspired by some of those people.
    Losing weight is hard, but it is worth the challenge.

    I hope you do great!!

  5. My husband was just diagnosed w/ a Fatty Liver and hes only 30 and doesnt drink alcohol. It was a big wake up call for both of us to change our fast food/couch potato life style. Its been 3wks and we've both lost 6lb's so far. So I'll enjoy following along w/ you on this journey.

  6. Angela....Live the Life is THE BEST program there is out there!! You will have great success on there, I know! I absolutely love the program, it has become the way we eat around my house now. I will never not eat the 'Live the Life' way! Best of luck. I'm excited to follow your journey. Thanks for your great blog, I love all of the great ideas you guys post on here.

  7. Ladies- Thank you for your support! I certainly need it. It's also nice to know that I'm not alone! Weight-loss is a tough feat. For me it's very psychological.

    Ms. Smullen- Again, lady... you inspire me! We need to meet in person. (Don't you live in my town?)

    Suesan- You are so sweet and genuine. Thank you for those sweet words. I'm so glad we keep in touch still. YOu are awesome. xo

    Debbie- I watched BL last night (on DVR) and just balled toward the end of the weigh-in. Courtney inspires me so much (as well as the others- great cast this season!!). Courtney has definately left her mark in this world. I don't think we've see the last of her. I think she will continue to inspire millions to change their lives. I hope she wins the $100K at the finalle.

    Katie- Wow, another Live the Life fan! My cousin, Holly Staley told me about this one and has had great success with it too. She swears by it, and has shared it with me which I'm so grateful! I want more friends to do it with me!!

  8. I love Holly! I'm actually the one who introduced her to the program. You'll love it!

  9. I am a fan of Live the Life as well. I got started with it because my cousin Trish is the co-founder. I had that baby weight that I could never get rid of. I love it because it because I needed someone to tell me what to eat and how to exercise. They are awesome - good luck!!

  10. What time of day exercise is actually important. In the evening, the human muscle temperature is the highest, and the environmental oxygen content is the highest. According to incomplete statistics, a number of Olympic records were created in the evening and evening.
