Last summer, I had had enough of being VERY overweight (OBESE) so I made up my mind to do something about it. I began watching what I was eating and walking daily. My results were great: I lost 30 lbs by the time I started back school!!! At my heaviest I was 252: that is really embarrassing...this was in Rhode Island so I went on WW and lost 20 lbs. Anyway, I want to keep this going because I look and feel so much better :) I can shop for clothes now in the ladies department instead of 'women' or 'plus'. It is a long road but totally worth it :)

I have found a job - it's a year-long internship of my DREAMS at my undergrad alma mater in NC! Can't wait to start the newest chapter of my life :) Can't wait for Autumn and football season!!!

Member Since: 1/1/2010

Fitness Minutes: 14,618

My Goals:
Weight loss - I would like to lose another 20 pounds (to start with). I am now 29 pounds away from my high school weight!!!

Fitness - workout at least 4 times per week.

Nutrition - start getting enough vitamins and stop eating fast food. Write down EVERYTHING I eat.

My Program:
Walking or slow jogging for exercise: usually at least 30 minutes a day. I have also started doing Zumba once or twice a week which breaks up the monotony.

Tracking my food: eating MUCH healthier. I do not visit fast food places; I eat more homecooked food.

Also, if there is something I really want to eat like a piece of chocolate, I go ahead and eat it. You should not deprive yourself!

Motivation: since I have lost the most recent 50 pounds, I have received MANY compliments. This helps me stick with it :)

Personal Information:
Currently living in Alabama.

Other Information:
I once met Paula Deen's sons at her store in Savannah, Georgia!
