I AM DONE WITH ANY AND ALL EXCUSES!

I am back for my second go around with Sparkpeople (I lost 30 lbs or so in college with the program, which I gained back over 3 years of law school).

I am a young professional woman who happens to play competitive rugby. I have been a rugby player for over 10 years now (started in college) and love every minute of it. A lot of my motivation comes from wanting to excel at the game I love, and the rest comes from me wanting to look as good as I feel!

This time feels different (than last SP journey and every other weight loss journey I have been on over the years) because my attitude is different. I am not doing this for anyone but me! I have a pretty athletic figure (for my weight), but would love to be a few sizes smaller and feel sexier!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~
UPDATE 6/5/12
I've lost 22 lbs and a pants size so far - I'm at 245 and a size 16W!!

UPDATE 10/11/12
I've lost 45 lbs and am moving into a size 14W, 16 Reg!!

UPDATE 12/12/12
I'm officially down 60 lbs as of this morning!! I am comfortably wearing misses 14s!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BMI is not something that I focus on in terms of my final goal, but I do like to track it for some added motivation!

3/15/12 - 267 = 38.3 (Severely Obese)
6/19/12 - 240 = 34.4 (Moderately Obese)
10/4/12 - 225 = 32.3 (Moderately Obese)
11/5/12 - 216 = 31.0 (Moderately Obese)
12/12/12 - 210 = 30.1 (Moderately Obese)
12/26/12 - 208 = 29.8 (Overweight)
