My Pursuit of Happiness & Self Confidence.

I am currently 25 years old and have put on 45 pounds since graduating Highschool in 2004. I have recently weighed myself for the first time in years ( I used to just "guess" what i weighed" and when i saw the actual number I knew I needed to do something about it. I work in an office so sit down for 12 hours a day. I am really trying to loose the weight for my own happiness. I want to like what I see in the mirror.

Thanks so much for your support on my blog! I'm waaaaay out of my comfort zone, and need all the help I can get!!

I appreciate the reality check on the Thurs/Sun date thing. I do have a tendency to overthink things! And you're right - who knows what he has planned for those days. While I don't think he actually works those days (he's told me he's a graduate student, who has a few office hours during the weekdays but mostly a flexible schedule), he certainly could have other things going on in his life!

About the "too overweight" worry - I actually don't have a recent full-length pic, so the only photo on my profile is a head shot. It was taken when I was 195 pounds (I'm now 175), so presumably if he liked my face then, he'd probably like it now (I think it's visibly thinner, now). But, if his "type" is petite, I'm not now (or ever) going to fit the bill - I'm tall, and I've never been smaller than a size 12!

I think once I get my hair done (I'm going for a cut and highlights next week, prior to my date with him), I'll get dressed up and take some full-length shots and add them to my profile. That way, he, and others, can get a better idea of my body type. And if that scares some of them away, it's better not to waste my time on them, anyway! :)

I don't own a dress like that but I hope to get one when I get to my goal weight. I hope to flaunt my new bod while enjoying my stay in Africa

Hi emoticon for checking in on me. I'm doing great. I had an almost perfect diet last week and I did all my workout routines which I am very proud of. I'm going to switch things up this week by reducing my carbs and fat intake and keeping my proteins just as they are. I don't want my body to keep guessing what I'm doing. I'm hoping to maintain it for a week so let's see. And you I hope you had a clean weekend
Keep pushing emoticon
