Hi, I am Rachael and I live in Texas. I have been over weight all my life. And, well, I am tired of it. I want to be healthier and more in shape.

The bottom line for me and I think for most people is that I want to be myself. . . but better. So I am working toward become a better version of myself. And one of the steps to getting there is being comfortable in the skin that contains me.

"But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified." 1 Corinthians 9:27

My Goals:
My overall goal is to get down to 150. I have had some set backs along the way, and I am not yet prepared to give the time frame for when I think I will reach that goal.

Shorter term goals are:
-to lose an average of a pound a week
-drink at least 8 cups of water a day
-develop a regular work out routine that I am able to stick to in which I work out at least 3 times a week.

Other Information:
I am a total Christian nerd, so here are a few Bible Verses I like:

"Your words were found, and I ate them, and Your words became to me a joy and the delight of my heart, for I am called by Your name, O Lord, God of Hosts." Jer. 15:16

“Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.”
Psalm 51: 10-12

“But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.”
2 Corinthians 12:9
