My name is Amanda, and I am a 24 yr old from Boise, Idaho. I am currently a psychology major at the College of Western Idaho, and work with young adults with physical and mental disabilities.

Growing up, I have always been a little heavier than kids my age. By the time I was starting Jr. High, I was wearing women's size medium which was a huge embarrassment for me. I grew up loving food, loving sugary sweets, recipes filled with butters and creams, and of course all that easy to get fast food. It's been like that for years. Once I hit high school, I had gained a lot of weight, and decided to do something about it. I slowly started getting into working out, but I felt like all my actions were being counteracted because of the foods my father would make for lunches and dinners.

My father passed away from a sudden heart attack on June 12, 2014, and my whole life flipped upside down and inside out. He had died because his heart could not handle the amount of weight on his body. As much as I love and miss my father dearly, I don't want to end up like him. I don't want to be overweight, and depend on other people to help me with simple day tasks.

I am making the conscience decision and effort to turn my life around. I am at my heaviest weight yet (173 lb's) and that is completely unacceptable. Starting today, right now, I will be loosing weight in the healthiest way possible, and I'm excited to be here and track my progress.
