I've been struggling with my weight as far back as I can remember. I had success losing 40lbs back in high school, but in three years I've managed to put on 80lbs! So my first major goal is to get back to my highschool graduation weight, and hopefully I can get a large chunk of that goal accomplished before my Mexico trip in spring 2013!

Ultimately though, I want a healthy BMI, so that's my true end goal.

My Goals:
To be honest, my weight loss goals are almost purely for aesthetics. I'm done with looking at myself and not being happy with the size I am. My first major goal is to get under the 200lbs mark (60lbs to lose!), but then I would love to lose another 60lbs and become half my starting weight.

My Program:
The first time I lost weight, I promised myself I was never going to get above 200lbs again. Look how that turned out, I'm now 60lbs over 200! Eeek! I'm told it's harder to lose weight the second time around, but I'm not going to let that bring me down! Not entirely certain about what I'm going to do to lose weight, but Sparkpeople seems like a good place to start!

Personal Information:
I'm from Northern Alberta (Canada), and I am probably the most stereotypical Canadian you'll ever meet. There's snow here at least 9 months of the year, I love Tim Hortons, in highschool I worked at a Canadian Tire and every year I look forward to having that maple toffee from the winter carnivals that you freeze over snow onto a stick - yum!

Other Information:
I'm 21 years old, just Graduated a few months ago from my program and am now working in various Hospitals as a Laboratory and X-Ray Technologist.

I'm a huge Harry Potter nerd, love reading book series, although with all the driving I've been doing to get to different workplaces it's turned into more of a listening to books then reading them.

Talk with me! I'd love to have a personal Sparkfriend to talk with about anything/everything. I'm really hoping to make SparkPeople an active and permanent part of my weightloss journey and life.
