Hi, my name is Cassandra and I am fat. Hi, Cassandra. :) Now, I am sick and tired of being sick and tired...and of being overweight. I have wanted to change my lifestyle for years but never seemed to have the motivation to do so. Every time I think I am losing weight, I am gaining it. And I have really gained some over the last 3 years. Being overweight really takes its toll on your body, and I am sick of it. Time to do something about it!

Member Since: 2/22/2010

Fitness Minutes: 630

My Goals:
I am getting married in Oct of this year, and really would like to not be fat for it!

I want to be able to fit into my clothes better and look better wearing them.

I want to not have to go out and buy new clothes because the ones I used to be able to wear are too small now.

I want to be healthier in general and in better shape than I am now.

I don't want to give in to my family genetics!

My Program:
It all starts with simple changes, and changes to your lifestyle. It's not about doing something for a month or two and then going back to the way you lived before. Baby steps right now...we will tackle the bigger things later.

Drink more water (even if that does mean Crystal Light fruit punch - love the stuff!!).

Eat the right portions and listen to what my body is telling me.

Exercise. That doesn't necessarily mean going to the gym, but just doing something other than sitting around watching TV!

And we will see what transpires from there...

Personal Information:
I am originally from Salem, OH and currently live in Akron. I am a social worker at a senior apt building and love what I do. I have 4 cats. I am getting married 10-13-10. :)
