February 2015: Well, in 2014 I got under 200lbs, made it to 184, but then the holidays hit. I''m back up to 196 but am ready to tackle it and get back on track before I get above 200 again. I refuse to let that happen. Weigh ins: 2/11/2015: 196 June 2014: Goals - Under 200 - DONE (early/mid-June) 196 - DONE (June 13th) 190 - 186 180 176 170 166 160 May 2014: Well my 25th birthday came and went. I was 80lbs down, and felt great. I had a good time, my friends came into town to celebrate, and life is good. I''m still working out, I''m still making progress. My goal now is to break the 200 barrier (I''m hovering at 201-203 right now. I haven''t been under 200 lbs in forever, not even the last time I lost weight 2 years ago. I know I can do it though. The sky is the limit! 2013: I''m 24, and refuse to enter 25 at morbidly obese. I am tired of sitting on the sidelines and waiting for things to happen, it is time to make them happen. My goal is a big one, but I want more than anything to ring in being a quarter of a century old at under 200lbs, something I have not seen since high school. I''ve got a plan, I''m willing to work hard, and I am ready for change. Goals: Weight loss goals: Current: 258 (11/11/13) 250- 12/1/13 -DONE 240- 1/3/14 DONE 230- 220- 210- 200- under 200- by my 25th birthday! Clothes: Size 18 pants - Size 16 skinny jeans (could once fit into them)- Workout: cardio 4x, strength 4x 11/17/13- no strength 11/24/13- no strength 12/29/13 - slowly adding strength

Member Since: 7/23/2009

Fitness Minutes: 18,784

My Goals:
Goal for November/December 2013: weekly
4x cardio
4x strength

January 2014:
-sign up for a 5k
-find a gym - DONE (did in Dec)
-eat less chocolate

My Program:
I am trying to eat healthier, even though I am very bad about counting calories. I have just added fruits and veggies (which were non-existent from my diet earlier), and started drinking water instead of sugar-filled drinks.

I am also going to the gym, plan to 5 times a week, and am doing strength training alongside cardio. I have also started doing group exercise classes at my university's gym.

Personal Information:
I have struggled with weight my entire life. In high school I never thought it was a big deal. I was always sort of a larger gal, but I was active (and never once made fun of or made to feel bad about my weight, except from my parents). Senior year, my step-dad passed away, and being the emotional eater that I am, I have since gained an extra 50+ lbs. I am just trying to rebuild my life, and take control back. That was a rough time for me, and I am doing a lot better emotionally, now it's time to translate that to physically.

Other Information:
I am tired of making excuses and am ready for a change.
