Here I go again...

Hello! I'm a 25 year old woman who needs to lose about 60 lbs. I've struggled with my weight for all of my (short) adult life, and really need some inspiration to get back to the healthy weight I enjoyed in my teens.

I really love running, and the main reason I want to lose weight is so that I can run faster and farther (and being able to wear short-shorts with confidence would be nice too!). I want to deal with not only the physical, but the mental and emotional reasons as to why ...

Oh, and my background image is from my favorite blog in the world; "Hyperbole and a Half," from a post titled "The God of Cake." Go there, read it, laugh, fall in love.

My Goals:
My goal is to lose about 60 lbs (which would put me in the 150's), but really I just want to be healthy again. I want to be a more active person, and to be fit enough to enjoy life again without worrying about my body holding me back.

Also, I want to start running again, but I'm going to have to start slow and work hard to strengthen my bones.

My Program:
-30-60 minutes of cardio 4 days a week
-30 minutes of strength training 2 days a week
-keeping a food journal and eating between 1300-1600 calories a day

Other Information:
I live in beautiful Southern Oregon, where I am lucky enough to be less than 2 hours from just about any outdoor activity you can think of. I want to hike in the woods, swim in the ocean, kayak down the river, and snowboard on the mountains, which are all within my reach.
