I've always prided myself on the fact that I'm a go-getter and I've never quit on anything.... except multiple diets and promises to myself to lose weight over the years. However, this time it WILL happen, and I'm going to employ my Irish stubbornness and my extremely competitve nature to make sure I do!

I'm going to try doing mini goals rather than looking at the daunting long-term goal. I think it will help because rather than looking at a goal 100+ lbs away, I'll be able to see the finish line throughout the whole thing! Hopefully that will motivate me to keep going!

I started at 246 lbs on June 4, 2012. I reached my first goal of 221 lbs/10% total weight loss on August 28, 2012 and my second goal of 199 lbs/20% total weight loss on September 23, 2012. I went through a busy period of my life (college, I tell ya!) and gained back the weight I lost unfortunately. Now I'm back in the game! I'm starting out at 248 lbs. on May 21, 2014 and my goal is to lose 10% and weigh in at 223 lbs. by August 18.

Wish me luck!

My Program:
Fitness: I do my best to make it to the gym 5 days a week. I adore the elliptical and all types of strength training.

Nutrition: I eat lots of lean protein like chicken and turkey, include fruits and/or veggies with each meal and as snacks, and typically only eat whole grains unless they're unavailable for some reason. I watch my sodium intake pretty closely and aim for at least 25g of fiber daily (if I don't hit it I'm usually close). I drink skim milk, (probably too much) coffee, tea, and lots of water! Lucky for me, I've never liked pop so it's never been a problem.

Personal Information:
I'm Erin! I'm from a suburb of the Twin Cities, and I attend college in Southeast Minnesota. I'm majoring in Communication Studies and minoring in Public Administration.

I'm 5'3 and am re-starting my weight loss journey at 248 lbs. I'm 21 years old and in my final semester of my undergraduate!
