My name is Amanda. I live in Southwest Ohio. I am 33 and have always struggled with my weight. There have been time periods where I have lost a lot of weight but I always put it all plus some back on. In January of 2013 I hit my highest weight ever and was so unhappy. I started taking an anti-depressant which seems to be helping my moods. I also started working with a personal trainer / nutritionist and she is helping me a ton! In the last 14 months I have completely changed everything I eat and have lost 97 pounds! I have a ways to go but I can't remember the last time I felt positive and excited about the future. I have learned to love exercise again - It really is an escape for me after a long day at work. And, for the first time in several years, my weight officially starts with a 1!!!

Fitness Minutes: 99,505

My Goals:
I have been so up and down for so many years that the last 14 months have been quite a whirlwind for me. My trainer/nutritionist has become one of my best friends. I am happier and healthier than I ever thought I could be. I still have 30-40 lbs that I'd like to lose. And, I know it will happen in time.

My Program:
To be honest, I still look at calories but they are not as big a part of my plan as they used to be. I really look at the nutrients, eat lean protein at least twice a day and I eat every 2-3 hours.

I exercise every day, although some days I do less than others. Just being active is a great feeling.

Personal Information:
Amanda from Fairfield, OH - I am a single young adult who is finding that losing weight is allowing me to enjoy life again!

    If you have any questions, be sure to ask. Who better to ask than a team of teachers? LOL
