Beginning of December 2014

I am treading on my life long journey to lose fat and inches, eat healthy, add activity into my life, and hopefully make more great friends along the way. :)
About 3 pant sizes to go! Zigzagging your calories and eating Paleo low carb/high protein semi 80/20 is a great start! Ketogenic diets are my friend while carbs really mess with me!
I've been Paleo 80/20 maintenance and slow fat loss for about 2 years. In the end of May of 2014 I started Jillean Michaels Ripped in 30 and eating a little less sugar/more strict (cut most fruits except berries). I toned and lost inches, but the scale didn't budget.
In September I really started focusing on a Ketogenic diet and the fat finally started coming off!
Fitness in 2011: 260lbs, 44 inch chest, 44 inch waist, 56 inch hips, 50% BF
Goal: 25% Body Fat with 32 inch waist, 36 inch chest, 42 inch hips! (approx)
July 29th,2014: 240lbs 38.5" chest, 38" waist, 46" hips
Current December 9th, 2014: 221.8lbs, 43.9% bodyfat
New Short Term Goal: 210lbs by December 31, 2014
I am a full-time Network Administrator with a Bachelors in Computer Science with a concentration in Database Technology. I volunteer with the Habitat for Humanity and Relay for Life in 3 counties.
I am 30 yrs old, 5'5", and truly do have a large bone structure and the tendency to retain muscle a bit better than others. The true Endomorph/Mesomorph! ;) I have switched my aims from losing only "weight" to losing body fat and inches and feeling healthier overall. :)
Long term big goal: 32" waist! Weight: Don't care as long as I'm strong and healthy at a size 32 that I've never reached before!
**** Feel free to sparkmail me or message me if you would like another friend/weightloss support buddy. I'm all about the mutual healthy effort! :) I get busy and drop off the face of the earth sometimes, but that's just because all my extra energy lately is focused on getting my workouts in!****
Summer 2014: 48% Body Fat.
December 2014: 43.9% bodyfat
Goal: 32 inch waist, 36 inch chest, 42" hips, 25% body fat!
Gain flexibility, strength, and endurance through yoga, pilates, weights, and cardio as often as possible without exhausting my body.
Eat healthy Paleo 80/20.. cook and eat natural, organic(when possible), 'good' fat foods in smaller portions for the rest of my life so that I can lose the weight I gained back and keep it off this time. :)
Eating natural, organic, ZERO gains (except for social alcohol rarely), gluten free, and good fat foods in moderation and with portion control. Paleo 80/20. (when you take a treat meal and want a beer, go for it! This is a lifestyle change you're going to LIVE with.)
No more "diet" foods such as frozen dinners or meal bars.
Ketogenic diets rule!
Northeastern Indiana. I am a country girl born, raised, single, and still reside. :)
I love the Divine Source of All Creation, my friends, the power of the Violet Flame and raising your vibrations, my family, my pets, comedies, self-help info, yoga, pilates, Ripped in 30, Pyramid training, animals, computers, volunteer work with Habitat for Humanity and Relay for Life, and generally anything that relates to being healthy in mind, body, and spirit.
