This time it's for real...

I'm almost 28 years old and I'm back here, where I started 4 years ago, saying I need to lose weight. It's frustrating knowing that I've spent my whole life being/feeling overweight and I don't just take the steps that are necessary to be fit and thin.

Nearly everything I said 4 years ago is still true, minus the age part... that saddens me.


It's time to stop saying "by this time next year I'll look better than I do" and time to make it happen. Whatever it ...

It's time to stop saying "by this time next year I'll look better than I do" and time to make it happen. Whatever it takes, I'm going to work hard to get the weight off for good.

I'm 24 and I've just changed my life. I've graduated, moved across the country, gotten a job, and I'm beginning my adult life. My life is hectic, but I'm done with school and can't rely on the crew team to exercise or on the stress of school to blame for my weight.

I keep seeing success stories on SP, and I just so badly want to be one of them! I've never been that skinny, the smallest I ever was was around a size 10-12 in high school. But now I'd do anything to get that back, but my real goal is to be a size 6-8.

I'm done looking at my profile and getting depressed. I'm done seeing pictures of myself and cringing. I'm done avoiding myself in the mirror after the shower. I'm done working really hard and then giving up and having to start all over again. I don't care how, the weight NEEDS TO GO.

I need all the help and support I can get. I often get too enthusiastic and neurotic about tracking everything and counting calories, then I get burnt out and stop everything all together. I'm trying to start really slow and not change too much at once. But I'd also like a really strong support system. That's what SP is for, but I'm looking for a buddy and can always use encouragement.

SparkPoints: 8,277

Fitness Minutes: 7,491

My Goals:
Get back on track. Record my meals, keep track of calories and nutritional values. Stop using biking as an excuse to eat poorly all the time.

First goal: 200 pounds. I just want to get back to 200 pounds. Let's say by October 10th. Lose 7 pounds by October 10th. Do it.

My Program:
I've had a rough year and I've steadily gained weight throughout the last year or two. I've been biking like crazy - I've biked well over 2,000 miles just in the last 9 months. However, no amount of biking can undo the poor choices I make in my nutrition. I've been making too many excuses and I need to start facing the facts: if I can learn some self control and eat better, I will lose weight. Just do it.

Personal Information:
Seattle, WA

Other Information:
I love swimming, biking, and rowing. I'm learning to love to run, which is a slow process. When I get into it, I love working out at the gym- especially weight lifting. I love the feeling of getting stronger. It's the most immediate results I can get, except for stretching, which makes me more flexible really quickly.

Hey! Sorry I just got your comment. Lol. I need to get my act together. I only lose weight consistently when I track what I eat, and I haven't been tracking. How are you? I'm Bridgette :)

I don't know yet what we'll name him! Dogs let you know what they should be named. I really like the name Winn, or a version of it. It's Welsh for handsome :-) emoticon
