About a year and half ago I was working out regularly, eating right, taking care of myself and at the smallest weight I have ever been around, 150-160. I was in a car accident, not at fault, March 2007. I only had what I would consider minor injuries because it could have been much much worse. I injured my neck, shoulder, back and hip. I was told by each Dr and chiropractor I went to that I should not work out because I could injure myself worse. I think I was slightly depressed and decided if I could not work out I will also eat whatever I want and as much of it as I want. When I finally was well enough to work with a physical therapist it was almost a year after my accident, and 80 pounds heavier! Anyway to make a long story short I am "allowed" to work out now but a little bit intimidated. I am having trouble finding a starting point or motivation. I want to get my life back!


*****Goals****** Updated 9/19/08 I had to change my goals because I couldn't wait to buy the wii!
240- Start weight 8/08
230- Wii
220- Get hair cut and colored
210- Tanning minutes!
200- Massage
190- Something for my wii
180- New outfit(s)
170- Something big, not sure yet. Maybe a vacation!


170 is my goal for right now, I have been at that weight and know I will need to lose more after that but I want to take small steps and not feel overwhelmed.

My Goals:
I just really want to be healthy and start treating myself better. I want to eat right and exercise daily and feel good.


My Program:
Right now I don't know what my program is! I just joined SP and hope it will help me start my program. Update...

I bought and elliptical and am working on using it most days. I can't do much more than 5-10 minute increments right now. But I hope to work up to more soon. I have been trying to drink a ton of water and limit my portions also!



Personal Information:
I am 23 and originally from Southern California I moved up to Oregon about 5 years ago. I'm learning to like it ;-) I currently go to school at Lane taking classes to become a Medical Assistant. I am very happily taken and hope to get married within the next few years.
