Hello! My name is Erin and I'm 27, living in Central California! Only July 15th (5 days before my 27th birthday) I had an ephiany that I was done, done, DONE being overweight. I topped the scales at a whopping 285lbs! :( I was not happy. I could feel myself getting heavier. This was NOT how I wanted my life to be! I am a very outgoing type of girl and I love to meet new people and laugh and smile... being at the weight, I wasn't able to be who I wanted to be... deep down inside. So enough was enough for me! Three days later I joined a gym, I started counting my calories and the rest is history. I am now happy to report that so far in the past 5 1/2 months I have lost 61lbs! Yay! I am now down to 224 and I am feeling so much better than I ever have! My goal is to be down to 185 (100lb loss) by my birthday, July 20th! I know I can do it... I HAVE to! I don't have any secret success to it either. I eat everything I want still, however, I drink a TON more water than before, seriously cut back on my diet soda intake (I was drinking 5/6 a day... now I drink 1, maaaybe 2) and I watch my portion control. Who knew that 1 portion could actually fill someone up!?! ;)

Well, now I continue into this new year and I am excited for all the new adventures ahead! This journey has NOT been easy, but boy has it been MORE than worth it! And it's funny... I'm finding that I'M worth it! :)

Hope to meet some really cool people and build my support system. I find so many people's stories inspiring, and believe it or not, THEY are the ones who get me through my "I-don't-want-to-do-this-anymore" stages.

So to all of you THANK YOU!!!

My Goals:
I started off at 285 in July 2010. My goal is to reach 185 by July 2011. Ultimately, I would like to see me at 165, but I want to get to 185 and see what happens after that!

My Program:
I don't do anything special... I just count my calories (I intake approx. 1200-1300cals a day), drink lots of water and exercise 5-6 days a week (cardio, free weights, etc.) I made sure this was going to be a LIFESTYLE change... and so far, it's working!

Personal Information:
I am originally from Manteca, CA. I work in Livermore, CA. Email me on here for my email address.

Other Information:
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE football, so anyone who shares that passion is more than awesome in my book! Haha ;) But really, I do... and I love the New England Patriots. Needless to say the end of 2010 was a great year for me... weight loss and a 14-2 season from my boys! :)
