Hey guys, my name is Bobby, but I like to go by Bobby Pierce! Haha. I've been overweight for most of my life, starting the year after I got my tonsils taken out. I gained so much weight that year, and every year after that I just kept packing it on. I started to realize my problem in 5th grade and joined Weight Watchers with my mom, and things went pretty darn good. I lost 60 lbs, I was still chubby, but looking good. I went off the program due to finances, and everything went down hill. I gained it all back and plus some. My heaviest (in 10th grade) was at 295. I realized how horrible I had become and decided to try and do something about it. I started eating healthier and exercising more. I then became vegetarian and dropped down to 279. Last summer I was down to my lowest at 230lbs. Things were great! That is, until school started. Stress and disgusting school lunch all played a role into me packing all of my weight back on within 2 months. After the end of the school year (this May) I decided to get back on track and really start exercising (which is something I've found I actually LOVE to do!) and eat much, much healthier. Since then I've dropped to 263 and keep dropping. And now with the help of SparkPeople I hope I'll be able to shed off the pound even faster and with more motivation. :)
Get to 170lbs. But I'd be happy at 200lbs :)
Just calorie counting and regular exercise!
I'm currently in high school and also in a career center for Digital Media and Graphic Design. It's definitely not something I want to keep doing. After I graduate I plan on going to Aveda Institute in Columbus Ohio to become a licensed Cosmetologist. Makeup is my passion :)
I'm obsessed with music and art. My favorite genres are Industrial, Metal, Indie, Techno, EBM, and dance. My favorite bands are Malice Mizer, Moi Dix Mois, VNV Nation, Angelspit, Jack Off Jill, The Arcade Fire, Regina Spektor, The Stokes, The Dresden Dolls, Schwarz Stein, Kaya, Lily Allen, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Apocalyptica, Band of Horses, Emilie Autumn, Hora, Killswitch Engage, Kozi, Of Montreal, The Postal Service, Tegan and Sara, RuPaul, t.A.T.u.
| current weight: 248.0

Hey, best of luck on your goal! You've already gotten a little chunk out of it, that's great. We have similar amounts to lose, so if you need any support, drop a line! I know what it's like be heavier since a young age and simply get fed up with it.
