Britney Spears bouncing back after that loser ruined her life!!! She is still a little bit of a hot mess but I love Britney and she has turned around in major ways- besides is anyone ever really perfect??

Adriana Lima, one of my favorite VS Angels! The Angels are so glam and fabulous! Hopefully these motivating pics will help me stay on track!! lol.

Hi. I am currently starting a journey back to myself or possibly finding myself REALLY for the first time. I have not been always overweight. I was never really SKINNY skinny but I was at a good weight for my body. Loooong story short: I was in a bad relationship for about 3 years that caused great depression, self esteem issues, and eventually a huge weight gain. And when it ended, it got a bit worse emotional wise (I don't know why- this was the best thing to come of this relationship was the end!!)... I look and I don't see myself in the mirror anymore.

I didn't discover that this massive change had taken place until I graduated ASU in 2007 (B.S. in Psychology, minor in Philosophy). I was disgusted. And I didn't think that it was me (graduation pics- yay)... But it was.

I have half heartedly tried to lose weight-- and have-- and gained it back... All of the diets work if you actually stick to it.... If you go back to your old compulsive habits-- yep that's right!- you gain it all back, PLUS.

I think the fact that I had been doing it for others (READ: MY FAMILY- MOM & DAD!!! & FAMILY!!!). It is really something I want- and I don’t know about you... but sometimes I don’t know because I have this idea that people should be accepting of us no matter what! But the truth is there is lots of discrimination. People will look at you and treat you differently because of your weight! I’ve been both places so trust me, I know!

I plan on moving out of the country to the UK next fall to obtain my PhD in Clinical Psychology while I am out there. I finished my Masters in Psych in November 2011 and currently work with the seriously mentally ill. And I would ideally like to be at my goal weight by then and have a fresh start out there...

I would like to get to my goal weight of 125. I would love to do this by December when I am going on vacation with my boyfriend... but I am not sure how realistic that is... :S Not so much I guess... :P

Currently I am reading "When Food is Love" by Geneen Roth to better understand compulsive eating habits and break the addiction... With weight it is almost ALWAYS more than meets the eye... Weight is a symptom- I think to fully lose and keep it off, we must really scrutinize and challenge ourselves to really look within and solve the actual problem not the symptom. For everyone that will be something different. Good luck to anyone else out there who is trying to accomplish their goals, whatever those may be.

"I had a boyfriend who told me I’d never succeed, never be nominated for a Grammy, never have a hit song, and that he hoped I’d fail. I said to him, ‘Someday, when we’re not together, you won’t be able to order a cup of coffee at the f★ck!ng deli without hearing or seeing me."

My Goals:
My goals are to lose weight and to be healthy and happy. I would also like to start learning burlesque and possibly take some classes if I can find any here!! :/ I would like to get some hobbies that make for an active lifestyle, such as hiking or tennis- I am going to have to look into it! I have insomnia bad so one of my goals is to get more sleep, hopefully 8 hours a night- because it really is impossible to be up all night and be able to excersize the next day!

My Program:
My program will consist of about 1000 calories a day. I have just started Insanity for 60 days and then P90X for 90 days. During this time I would like to also do additional working out from Brazilian Butt Lift, Carmen Electra Strip Cardio Workouts, Hip Hop Abs, Insanity, and other type workouts to add a bit more cardio. I will also be playing softball with my co-workers on Fridays.

Personal Information:
I just turned 27. Virgo. I am from Arizona. :) Been here all my life... However I am moving to the UK next year to hopefully work and go to school out there-- I just can't wait to experience VISA hell first hand.... ;)
