Hello everyone,

My name is Hope, I'm a pre medical student, and I am taking action of my health! I am doing great school-wise, but I won't get into med school being obese (nor do I). As of today (2/3/2013), I have approximately 19 months to lose weight before medical school interviews start (which will set me around 9/1/2014). I have literally waited until the last minute, I can be terrible with procrastination!

I'm very friendly and encouraging, and actually know quite a bit about exercise, nutrition, wellness, and the like. This is either due to my academics and classes I've taken, or research out of personal interest. My goal is to treat weight-loss as I treat school. Not necessarily perfecting things, but striving for excellence. I can no longer push this back, or half-ass it anymore.

Where I am now:

SW: 265 (2/3/2013)
CW: 258 6/21/2013
Next goal weight: 254 by 7/19/2013

I also have insulin resistance, which I hope to reverse with weight loss.

    "It is rewarding to find someone you like, but it is essential to like yourself.
    It is quickening to recognize that someone is a good and decent human being, but it is indispensable to view yourself as acceptable.
    It is a delight to discover people who are worthy of respect and admiration and love, but it is vital to believe yourself deserving of these things."

    "My invitation to you is to begin living every moment as though you are miraculous and deserve to live an extraordinary life.
    Fake it if you must and keep faking it until it’s real to you. The gift you will be giving yourself is a lifelong journey of discovery, one that is infinite and infinitely rewarding. Begin the journey. Today. This moment. Now."

    “In terms of days and moments lived, you’ll never again be as young as you are right now, so spend this day, the youth of your future, in a way that deflects regret. Invest in yourself. Have some fun. Do something important. Love somebody extra. In one sense, you’re just a kid, but a kid with enough years on her to know that every day is priceless."

    "I believe that we are who we choose to be.
    Nobody's going to come and save you. You've got to save yourself.
    Nobody's going to give you anything. You've got to go out and fight for it.
    Nobody knows what you want except for you.
    And nobody will be as sorry as you if you don't get it.
    So don't give up on your dreams."
