Hey Welcome to my page and thanks for taking the time to read this ! When i was 16 years old i was skinny and pretty but i didnt believe it and now looking back i wish i did i have gone from a size 9 to a size 19 this is a huge jump for me and i have been looking for ways to fix it. I didnt realize i am the one that holds the key to my own happiness and weightloss well not until the other day when i came across this site. For the last 3 years i have allowed my self to be used by men and boys and instead of standing up for my self i ate myself into obesity and a depression. A year ago today i was the happiest i had ever been and then months later he ripped my heart out, I took my depressed feeling and looked to food for comfort and that is where 55 pounds came from since November 2009 until now July 1 2010. I loved and lost and now i am ready to move on with my life and be happy again but in order to take control and feel good about myself again i want to be smaller then what i am right now, I am tired of being controlled by my own emotions so i am going to lose my weight and get my life back because I am a strong woman and the only person standing in my way of happiness is me.
My goal is to lose the 55 pounds i have to lose and become skinny so i am no longer the loser in the group!
I have 30 minutes of strength training everyday along with 1 hour of Cardio and I have to closly monitor what i eat! No Sugar, POP or Junk food of any kind
I am from canada I am 19 years old and entering College in the fall, after a bad break up i gained 65 pounds because of depression and due to my asthma i have not been able to get it off again. This is my motivation.
My Favorite Movies are the twilight saga along with my favorite book the twilight series by Stephanie meyer. My favorite TV shows are Law & order SVU and Vampire Diaries. My second favorite series to read is The Vampire Diaries
According to Brownielocks today is National Watermelon Day!
Watermelons ... a sweet, drippy, juicy way to learn! ;) So let's start out with some watermelon facts:
Watermelon Facts: * Watermelons are more than 90% water. That's how it got its name! * For that reason, in ancient times travelers used them as a source of transportable water. * They probably originated in Africa, but are now grown around the world. * They are part of the gourd family. * They grow on a vine and must be replanted yearly. * Most people consider them to be a fruit, but horticulturists consider them a vegetable. * They vary in size and shape. The Japanese recently even developed a SQUARE watermelon! * The outside of the watermelon is the rind. * Inside the watermelon you'll find the flesh (the stuff you eat), and seeds. * Watermelons can be different colors inside and out, as well as the amount of seeds that they contain. * Most watermelons weigh from 5 - 40 pounds, but some get as large as 100 pounds. * The 1996 Guiness Book of Records lists the largest watermelon as being 262 pounds! * The seeds (like the pumpkin's seeds) can also be roasted and eaten. * Some people use the watermelon rind for making preserves, pickles, or relish. * That makes the whole watermelon edible!

Found this poem this morning while searching for some motivation, hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Anything is Possible By Unknown
If there was ever a time to dare, to make a difference, to embark on something worth doing, IT IS NOW. Not for any grand cause, necessarily... but for something that tugs at your heart, something that's your inspiration, something that's your dream. You owe it to yourself to make your days here count. HAVE FUN. DIG DEEP. STRETCH. DREAM BIG.
Know, though, that things worth doing seldom come easy. There will be good days. And there will be bad days. There will be times when you want to turn around, pack it up, and call it quits. Those times tell you that you are pushing yourself, that you are not afraid to learn by trying.
PERSIST. Because with an idea, determination, and the right tools, you can do great things. Let your instincts, your intellect, and your heart, guide you.
TRUST. Believe in the incredible power of the human mind. Of doing something that makes a difference. Of working hard. Of laughing and hoping. Of lazy afternoons. Of lasting friends. Of all the things that will cross your path this year. The start of something new brings the hope of something great, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.
