I need to do this!

My name is Melissa and I am 28 years old. I have been overweight my entire life and just want to lose some of it. I am incredibly uncomfortable with how I have let myself become. I want to be able to run, not be embarassed in a swim suit, be able to sit in any seat, feel better, and be healthier among other things. I am really ready for a change.

My name is Melissa and I am 28 years old. I have been overweight my entire life and just want to lose some of it. I am incredibly uncomfortable with how I have let myself become. I want to be able to run, not be embarassed in a swim suit, be able to sit in any seat, feel better, and be healthier among other things. I am really ready for a change.

My biggest problems are motivation, my odd schedule, and my sweet tooth, and the fact that I have an illicit love affair with food. I really enjoy doing outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking, snowshoeing, bike riding, etc., but it is hard to do the activities I love when every part of my body hurts.

I absolutely love food and am trying to change the way I think of food by cooking healthier. I was an avid user of Spark and was doing great about three years ago. I have since gained back what I had lost, plus some. Now I am the heaviest I have ever been and want to get back on track. I want the pain to stop.

My Goals:
I believe in setting small goals that don't seem too daunting. I want to get under 250 so I can get on the bone marrow donor registry. Ultimately I want to get under 200, but that will take time and lots of work and discipline.

My Program:
Exercise and get more activity. Eat less and focus on the nutritious quality of what I am eating. Limit my sweets intake.

Personal Information:
