Me after going to the Tony's...not bad! Except for the fact that I'm standing at a McDonald's :o)

I started gaining weight little by little in college, but not enough to make me feel truly uncomfortable with myself. When I moved to NYC over 2 years ago, I went through a depression while adjusting to city life, eating to make myself feel better. (It didn't help that I was a waitress and constantly surrounded by food). Once I relaxed into my new habitat, and became more social, I then gained even MORE because this city has so many yummy treats to offer EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK!

When I stepped on the scale and saw the "8" in "182 lbs" it shocked me. No more could I ignore the fact that I was steadily becoming chubbier. My habits have to change! I've tried before, and gotten bored, or lacked the motivation, or been discouraged when my boyfriend (who's a chef) makes something fattening, and irresistible. I've also been just plain LAZY!

I started with SP this past summer, and I lost a little over 10 pounds. I gained a couple back over the holidays, but I'm actually excited to get back in the game in the new year!

I have a plan for 2009. It's a preparation year. I'm taking the necessary steps this year to attain career happiness. It's only natural that I should be healthy and fit to help me take those big brave steps! It's not going to be easy, but if I work my butt off for the next 12 months, I will be reaping big benefits in 2010 :o)

I'm looking at it as a journey. I think I'll come to know myself better than I ever have in the months ahead. I'm excited to prove to myself what I'm truly made of :o)
