I live in Salt Lake City where I was born and raised.

I've always struggled with my weight - although I was a twig as a child. In 6th grade I was the first girl to get a bra and in junior high I developed hips. I thought I was just getting fat, so I hid in baggy clothes which only compounded the problem. When I finally wore fitted clothes, people around me would say "Hey, you aren't fat at all!" and I wasn't. I just didn't know it. I looked in the mirror and saw fat.

By my mid-twenties I had grown into a fat person and I actually looked like I always imagined that I looked like. The irony now is that I don't feel like the fat person that I see in the mirror. There is a thin person inside waiting to get out.

I refuse to spend the rest of my life overweight. There is a world out there that I want to be a part of and I want to do it feeling the way I know that I can.

My Goals:
Ultimately I would like to be a size 8, be able to run for 60 minutes without stopping and to be able to do all of the daily activities that I want to do and feel good doing it. I want to feel confident and content.

I want to look fantastic in the clothes that I love - I adore fashion, but it just isn't made to fit an unhealthy body.

My Program:
Making the day to day choices that work for me. I plan my daily meals and stick to that plan. Nothing is off-limits but I watch portion size. I am working on the Beck Diet process.

Personal Information:
I live in Utah and am 31 years old. I love to mountain bike and swim. I love gardening in my big overgrown yard and cooking.
