New Year 2012

Hey all!! Happy New Year!!! ok, I know it's tomorrow but i'm sure everyone is at least thinking of what this next year holds!

I will be too busy tomorrow to check in. I am going out of town to see family and have to be sure to set my hubby up with all the right foods and snacks so that he can have a great start too! Debbie has been a wonderful support AS ALWAYS, and she bought some groceries I need so that I get off to a great start too. She is watching what she eats too so this should be a GREAT start!

Ok, well if you want to share, I'd love to hear what you are planning for New Years goals/eating/exercise plans/contests, whatever! I'll be sure to check out your blogs too. :)

Happy New Year!!!!
next.... the WEIGH IN!!! lol

Action Plan

The first thing I plan on doing everyday is getting my mind and heart in the game!
I'd like to spend a few minutes at the start of each day in Gods word. And get some perspective and have a good positive start to the day!

Secondly, I have committed to 2 challenges to start the new year.

The first is "Antone Davis 20 pound challenge." Antone came in second place on BL season 12 this year ;)
I committed to one hour a day of exercise, for the first week. Then two hours a day 5x a week after that and 1 hour a day on the weekends.

I also joined a Biggest Loser 4 contest with my Aunt Barb and about 14 other people. The contest goes till April 2nd.
I'd LOVE to win that one and have some extra money for new clothes ;)

I will probably spend most of my workout time walking or biking, as I have had some issues with my heal and I want to be good to go when I get to spend a week at Biggest Losers Fitness Ridge ;)

That's it for now then! I'll weigh in January 2nd, for contest purposes and I DO plan on sharing that with you!

Have a safe and Happy New Year!!!!


The Truth

So starting with the truth.....

The truth is that I have been dieting for the "better" or worse part of 16 years. I have gained and lost probably hundreds of pounds.
My highest weight ever was 255, I got there or almost there 3 times, about 5 years in to my happy marriage, we loved to go out to eat, drink beer while bowling late sometimes on the weekends and we also loved going to the movies and OVER indulging on buttered popcorn!!! :) yummmmm

Then I lost 50lbs or so, and gained that back again, then lost it again to get pregnant. Then got right back to 250 before delivery, lost that....
And the cycle continued I got down to 183 durnig a contest at Metro South Church one year, and then took up running and kept most of that weight off for almost 2 years.
Then I don't know what happened really, life just got away from me and I gained all but 5lbs of that back.

I was doing GREAT the first part of this December untill I gave into my addicition and lived on mostly cookies and cheeseballs. :/
So with those two weeks behind me... I'm READY to move forward!!! yay!! With the support of my husband, and you all.

I also have to tell you, truthfully, I'm not pretending to have it all figured out, I know occasionally I will fail, I will dissappoint myself, you and my creator. But by the grace of God I'll get there! I CANNOT WAIT TO NOT CARRY THIS BURDEN ANY LONGER!!!

I'll get going on a plan of action and please feel free to post what you are doing to get in shape physically, mentally or spiritually. I could certainly use the encouragement and I know so many others could too.

Thank you in advance for joining or following me in this journey.

Love is all you need!!! <3 And I've got plenty!!

Sydney's Song origin

Well, to get started I'll tell you where Sydneys Song came from.
My middle name is Sydney. I was named after my Great Grandfather, Sidney Robinson. I have always LOVED that name. In high school I wished I could have legally changed my name to Sydney. I guess it has always taken me to a person I thought I really was, like Lindsay would never be cool enough or fun enough or pretty enough, but Sydney, would be cool only because she didn't care if other people would think she were enough of any of those things. Sydney just treasures family and actually is different and is honestly ok with that.

Now that you probably think I have multiple personalities....

I was trying to have my blog page be called I Believe, but that was taken.So I prayed that God would lead my heart to choose something meaningful and not just maybe catchy.
What I came up with then is Sydneys Song because what I plan to write about and share is the person that I believe that I am and the song that is in my heart and maybe just a song or two that I have on my mind.
I have come to realize that if I do not live out my life based on what I BELIEVE to be true, then it's a lie, and I cannot possibly expect God to bless that.

I am absolutely thrilled with where I am, I love my husband, my son, and the rest of my friends and family. I just also believe that God has a plan for my life that doesn't include an addiction to food. I am sure He will use this process for His glory and I cannot wait to see what He has in store!

For starters I'll bring you along on my journey to shed my food addiction and 100 lbs.
