I'm almost 30 and have lost myself. So I've decided enough of that and time to make a change. I want more out of my life. More from my health, more from my work, more from my life, more from just about everything... I want nothing to hold me back from success, and if that means getting down to business I'm game.

Let me make this clear - I am not looking for a DIET, I am not looking to starve myself - I've been anorexic and I know what the consequences are. I have tried many programs, and more often than naught I gain weight. I know that I am not healthy in my eating habits. I haven't been healthy in my habits in years. And I'll admit to it. I also haven't had a good/positive body image in years either. That does not mean that I do not LOVE myself, it means that I cry every time I have to go close shopping and I can't fit into the clothes I want. But more importantly I have gained significant weight since finishing college and getting a desk job, and in that same year I have had more health issues than ever. So I am not looking to get down to a size 2, or lose 100 pounds. What I am looking for is to get healthy, both in body, mind, and soul.

I am now TWICE what the doctor says I should weigh thanks to the BMI index. Which while I don't agree with the number he thinks I should be, it is still an eye opening thing. For my height - 5'2" BMI says I should be between 105-135lbs, and there is NO WAY IN HELL I would look good at 105.

My ideal weight for me is not a number. IT is a feeling.

-IT is being able to run a 5k or more.

-IT is being able to get to the top of the stairs or mountain without getting winded.

-It is having a flat stomach (ideally six pack abs)

-IT is not crying when I go clothes shopping, especially for a swim suit

-IT is being able to run around the boats again

-It is about being happy in my own body.

I am not picking a number the scale has to read, as that never works. Rather my goal is to lose 10% - so starting goal is 20lb.

I am going to log all my food and activity in a journal. I am going to continue to plan day hikes/geocache adventures. I am going to go to the gym or do some physical activity EVERY day.

I am going to make a change in my thoughts and behaviors.

And if you would like to come along and join me, please do.

I'm going to becoming a "Loser" and "Win" back ME
