Hi! My name is Miranda. I'm from a rural area in Texas just south of Abilene. I grew up in the country, so I'm absolutely in love with nature! That's one of my motivations to lose weight. I love outdoor activities, but I'm so out of shape that I tire out easily. I've been overweight most of my life. Obesity runs in my family as well as thyroid problems, so I'm battling genetics.
I have a degree in Biology and am currently back in school working on a Nursing degree, so I know fairly in-depth how all this works! That doesn't make it any easier, though. Most days I feel like I'm all information and very little action. I KNOW what I need to do, the problem is doing it.

SW: 220 (sz. 18W) 12/05/08
CW: 197.6 (sz. 16) 04/15/09
GW: 135 (sz. 8 - I don't think these hips will get any smaller than that!)
Goals (10%)/Rewards:
198 / Salon Day - Goal Met 05/13/09
179 / 2 New Books
161 / Spa Treatment
145 / Massage
135 / Diamond Studs
Go ahead and take your best shot,
Let 'er rip, give it all you've got,
I'm laid out on the floor, but I've been here before,
I may stumble, yeah I might fall,
I'm Only human but aren't we all?
I might lose my way, but hear me when I say,
I will stand back up,
You'll know just the moment when I've had enough,
Sometimes I'm afraid, and I don't feel that tough,
But I'll stand back up ~ Sugarland
