Welcome to my struggle

I'm a 28 year old woman struggling with being a healthier person. I am overweight for my height and bone structure by at least 90 pounds. I started my weight loss journey hardcore in June 2010 at 248 pounds. It's the heaviest I've ever been and I never want to be there again. I have no patience so this journey seems a lot harder than it's actually been. Guess it's all perspective!!

My Goals:
To be a more active person. I want to lose weight and be healthier. I decided to make working out a hobby so I could be a more interesting person in the dating scene. So far, so good!

My Program:
I had a trainer for 6 months who motivated me to get my self esteem back up. Once I realized I was worth it, I'm now continuing with 3 days a week of strength training and 5-6 days a week of cardio.

Personal Information:
My name is Mandy and I live in Groton CT.

Other Information:
My favorite authors are Laurie Notaro and Christopher Moore. Laurie writes from the heart about being overweight. Christopher Moore is a genious with words and easily the most hysterical author I've ever read

Love the new profile pic and don't worry -- it was *NOT* TMI...I thought it was pretty hysterical actually. And I was pretty successful yesterday until about 4 pm when I felt completely exhausted. And more grey and rain today...ack.

emoticon so much for the thoughtful blog comment! I've been taking pictures with every 10% I lose, but I think you're right: instead of waiting till I hit the next mark, I'm going to take one now. I didn't restart tracking calories until this past weekend, so I don't know if I was on track with where I should've been or not. I will definitely keep your words in mind, though. Even though I know not to put too much stock in what the scale says, I've found that it's much easier said than done in practice!
