Hello, and welcome to 1Girl1Year100Pounds!

This blog was started so I could write about my weight loss struggles and achievements during my first year of serious weight loss. I need a place to vent and, hopefully, to celebrate.

I hope that if someone stumbles upon this blog someday that maybe it will give them hope and encouragement. I really hope to be an “after” story in a year’s time!

As far as my weight goes, I’m starting out in the 260s and hoping to get down to the 160s (or lower!) in a year’s time. I will take it as I go, but my long-term/finish line goal is around 130-135. (For anyone who is wondering, I am 5’4″.)

My method? Portion control and increased exercise. Not taking my emotions out on food. Support. Talking. Venting. Writing. Laughing. I hope it works!

So, if you’re interested in following along with my progress and my story, keep coming back to this blog! I hope to write in it at least 3-4 times a week! Also visit the other pages (the tabs along the top of the page) which will show progress photos and links to my other exploits!

  1. It will work! You’ve got this πŸ™‚ Thats exactly what I did when I lost mine. Just good portions, healthier food, exercise, and stopping bored/emotion eating. Another great tip is to stop eating not when you’re full..but when you’re not hungry anymore. To train yourself that it’s okay to leave food on your plate you know? You can always eat it another time..that was a huge issue for me in the beginning.

    You can do this Sarah! πŸ™‚

  2. Thanks Ash! Yes, I need to work on getting my body used to the different signals – physically and emotionally. I read a trick recently that said to use small plates!

  3. GO SARAH GO!!! I eat for the same reasons and I’m committed to stopping that behavior too! We’re in this together! I know you are determined enough to succeed!
