•Hi there! I'm Alicia and I'm excited to share my goals and life with you all. 😄 I live in Indiana with my husband and our 3 fur babies. (two kitties and a husky pup)• •I work in retail so my schedule is not very consistent which has made it difficult for me to set aside a time for exercise. It's tough for me to keep motivated as I am literally addicted to sweets and carbs. This year, I am determined to make a change!• •On our wedding day almost 3 years ago, I weighed 145lbs and felt great! Now I'm currently at 166 and have trouble breathing when I walk up and down stairs... Not exactly something a 27 year old should have trouble with! I love swing dancing and Zumba, so I've made myself a goal of practicing each of those at least twice a week. I just need to remind myself how great I feel after exercising!• •I know that it's not "all about the numbers" so I am not beating myself up to get down to specific weights, they are just guidelines for myself! Mostly I need to feel more energized, healthy, and strong!• •Well, I'm looking forward to losing weight and keeping fit!• -Alicia Goals/Goal Weight by each date: 1/1 - current = 166 4/1 - goal = 155 7/1 - goal = 145 10/1-goal = 135

    Yeah I read what I wrote later and thought "oh no I hope I wasn't rude when I said that!?" I apologize! We are all in our own stages and can help each other! I'm so overwhelmed from the number of people who responded to my post! I'm still trying to catch up! I hope we can be friends! emoticon

    emoticon It's nice to meet you Alicia. I'm Stephanie. I can totally understand how you feel! I read your bio on here and was like "me too!" except I have way more weight to lose. I have never heard of someone your size having trouble going up the stairs and getting winded... I guess it is more about fitness than weight. You inspire me though. Thank you for the friend request! I'm glad you are back to SP! Talk to you soon!
