Hello, anyone seeing this!

My name is Karen, I'm 25 years old, and live in Southern Maine! I currently weigh 220lbs, and while I am not happy with my body or lifestyle, there are three main reasons I want to lose weight and get healthier:

- The biggest reason is my three year old niece. I want to be a good role model for her, and I want to have the energy and motivation to get up and play with her, instead of sitting on the couch watching TV.

- Ever since I went away to college at 18, I've had daily headaches and migraines. This also happened to be around the time I gained thirty pounds. Coincidence? I'm hoping that by eating healthier and exercising I can get rid of the fatigue, back and shoulder aches and stress that feed into my headaches.

- I am hoping that once I have my headaches and fatigue under control I will be able to concentrate on making my Photography hobby into a second job, if not my own business!

I am also concerned that seeing as four out of six people in the two generations before me have had Diabetes I may be at higher risk. Both of my grandmothers are extremely overweight, and most people in my family have joint/back issues. I'm hoping that by getting to a healthier weight, and creating a healthier lifestyle for myself I can reduce the risks of myself following in their footsteps!

I want to get down to 180 (my pre-college weight) but I would LOVE to see if I could make it to 160 (my high school weight). Those were the days when I was happiest with my body, and I feel I looked the healthiest - at 5'6 I would still have meat on my bones and curves!

    Hey! I know how you feel. I am 25 years old too. I have 2 nieces. One who is 3 years old and one who is going to be 2 years old on Dec 6th... My sister is going to have a boy on nov 12 2013 too... I want to lose weight before I turn 30 and also I want to do it for them... I am the auntie kind that my 3 year old niece told my sister (her mommy) that auntie would take her to the fair lol but sadly I had to work and didnt get there with them but they got there with there mommy.... I love taking them to places-swimming parks (water parks) and other places they love going too but Im over 300 pounds and its hard to keep up with them sometimes!!! Other then that I want to do this for myself to prove that I can still do something i put my mind too.... another reason is my job mannn it takes alot out of us to do the job and boy it gives me back pain like you wouldnt believe!!! I like my job cause its seasonal and we get july and nov off and they give us a few other months off so some of the year we get to enjoy life sure we have to look for work all year but its almost impossible to get a job without anything like college to back you up but even then they dont always get a job lol and the courses I was looking at and interested in is for part time work and who can live off part time lol.....anyways hope you have a good night!
