Being silly with cameras... this one didn't turn out too bad!





While not at all attractive, this picture pretty much sums up my personality. ;)





Me and Buckaroo: He's pretty cute!



I have 13 pics in my gallery

Hi! My name's Rhiana...

Here's for starters: I'm ridiculously overweight, I know next to nothing about nutrition, and all this new information is about to make my head explode!

But, then, I suppose that's where a lot of you are finding yourselves, too, am I right? :)

So, all there is to do is keep going forward.

As far as my personal self goes, I have a severe back injury that's not only kept me from exercising for the last three years, but ...
Hi! My name's Rhiana...

Here's for starters: I'm ridiculously overweight, I know next to nothing about nutrition, and all this new information is about to make my head explode!

But, then, I suppose that's where a lot of you are finding yourselves, too, am I right? :)

So, all there is to do is keep going forward.

As far as my personal self goes, I have a severe back injury that's not only kept me from exercising for the last three years, but is also responsible for my 100-pound weight gain. My back injury keeps me pretty isolated, and I'm only able to walk five to ten steps before collapse. It's pretty lame! But I'm trying to look forward and look up. The only exercise I'm able to do without further injury is swimming, which, when you live in the country, is pretty difficult. I intend to purchase a season pass at the local town's public pool, and pursue a program tailored so that I can lose weight without hurting myself.

I injured my back in a horseback accident, and it was pretty traumatic. I've grown up riding horses, live and breathed them, and still do. Now that I've managed to get past the psychological trauma of the accident, and am now ready to ride again, I'm finally ready to push myself to lose this weight and tackle this injury!

Which leads to the overhwelmed thing. But I'm stubborn, so that's in my favor.

Deep breaths, everyone. Here we go.

My Goals:
To get healthier.

To be happier.

To STICK WITH IT!

(I think the last will be the hardest...)

Being the flighty type, I'll get more detailed as I get deeper into this. Too much too soon makes me run away! :D

My Program:
I don't yet have a 'program,' per se, but I have a general desire to 'do this.' I tend to do things my own way, but that hasn't exactly worked out the best so far, so... I'm sure a program is on its way!

Personal Information:
I live in the country, and I love it. My favorite things to do are write, read, ride horses, and sing. Last summer I won one thousand dollars in a karaoke contest during last year's Summer Festival in town.

Other Information:
I'm an avid reader, with a very open mind with regards to philosophy, religion, politics, etc. I love lively conversation, but I also value respect and dignity. :)

Hi Rhiana. Just keep chipping away and don't give up - even if you slip up. You will anly fail if you give up and even then you can just pick your self up and start again.
