I, Amanda, vow to take it one day at a time to no longer living weak. I fight for my health! I fight for my strength! I fight for my own peace of mind! I'm DONE dwelling on past experiences and past mistakes. And moving forward with a life I chose.

Between 2008-2009 I lost 40 pounds! I want another 40 pounds.

It's 2011 and I gained 10 of those 40 pounds, but I'm committing to the rest of 2011 and I want to be 175 by New Years. 175 would be a number that I don't even remember seeing on the scale, it would be uncharted territory and I'm ready!

Recently I had gained 10 pounds from my senior semester of college. Then I gained another 10 pounds from surgery. I pack up to 210, with only a 20 pound loss. Not 40.... I want 40 pack.

Since May 2010, I've been making all the excuses of why I am not losing weight, eating right, or exercising....

WELL I'M DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I want to stop making excuses and JUST DO IT! No more saying I don't have time, because with all my exercising equipment, I can do numerous things while watching my favorite show, it's that simple.

I need to remember the joy I got out of exercising and eating right. I didn't feel sluggish, dehydrated, or tired. I had energy that would last me from morning to night!

This is my vow to myself, to start the process of gaining my life back, its my time to shine! No longer will I listen to the words that are not encouraging, because I know I can do it.

My family says "I will never be able to make it to size 6," well I'm going to and that's a promise!
