I have struggled with my weight my entire life. I have been every size between a 4 and a 16. I finally lost weight and was able to maintain a size 4/6 for about 4 years. Unfortunately, I ended up gaining 50 pounds between last summer and early fall (due to a medication for a hormone imbalance, I was gaining 10+ pounds a month, and only stopped gaining once I went off the medication). Now, I am struggling to get the weight off. I have been eating clean, exercising, and following the 21 Day Fix since January and haven't lost one pound. Here's to hoping that by coming on Sparkpeople again, I can keep up my motivation, and eventually figure out what's preventing me from losing weight.
I want to fit and toned. I want to be able to comfortably be able to wear my size 6 jeans...it would be even better if I can fit into size 4s! I want to be confident enough to wear a bikini this summer for my trip to Vegas in July.
* Eat more healthy (lots of fruits, veggies)
* 8 glasses of water a day

*Strength train 3 days a week (Mon, Wed, Fri)
*Do yoga once a week
*Weigh in every Saturday

I admit-- when I go coffee, I go creamer. That's why I mainly go tea. I've had such a picky palate when it comes to coffee recently, I just can't find the right bean. I used to just have some Splenda in it, and now I'm all creamer! skim milk! Splenda! NOW!
So maybe not entirely clean eating...

So true. Maybe it wasn't as rough and tough as I could have gone, but I did it. And I'll workout again and go harder. Well, I'll get adequate sleep first-- THEN go harder! :)

They're so wonderful, and such nice guys! I write David quite a bit, and he's also so supportive of my weight-loss. I was lucky enough to join Modlife back before it went to total crap, so I was able to go VIP to shows, and actually even got to sit side stage!!! SO FREAKING AMAZING!!! And the pics were crazy good!!! When I met David face to face after e-mailing back and forth for a very long time, he knew exactly who I was and it was just so awesome!!! His hugs are also probably the BEST hugs ever!!! All of my friends who know him as well definitely agree!!! I found Blink when I was 8 years old, fell completely in love, when they broke up my life was already complete sh*t and them leaving took me over the edge. Anyway, AvA changed my life. I was sided completely with Mark and Travis at first, loved +44 and was bitter towards Tom. But I'm telling you the first time I saw AvA my heart changed. Though I always loved Mark so much. Now, honestly I'm just a chick who follows them BOTH every tour, but being friends with DK is the most important thing to me. Honestly though, nothing is more magical than an AvA show!!! Though the 3 Blink shows I've been too were amazing as well :)
