Hello! My name is Summer...I just turned 24. I am quite overweight and ready for some major lifestyle changes. I have done the yo-yo dieting thing for way too long and I have tried so many different methods for weight loss. In the last few years I have gone up and down more than I can keep track of and I really hope that this is the beginning of something new and lasting. I am ready to be healthy and happy! I am sick of my weight holding me back....I am ready for this...

Member Since: 8/1/2010

Fitness Minutes: 464

My Goals:
I want to be healthy. I want to be proud of who I am. I want to live long and see my kids (that I don't have yet) grow up. I want my wonderful husband to have the sexy wife he deserves. I want to wear a swimsuit on the beach and feel comfortable and confident. I want to wear shorts! Ohhh to wear shorts...that would be amazing. I would really like to lose about 50 pounds. That seems like soooo much, but I know that I can do it. I am ready for this....

My Program:
-To consume between 1,460 - 1,810 calories a day...(I have actually had a hard time eating this many calories...It's crazy how much more you can eat in a day if you just make healthy choices!)

-Walk 2 miles 6 days a week

-40 minutes of strength training 3 days a week

-40 minutes of cardio Monday, Wednesday, Friday

-Drink atleast 8 glasses of water a day

Personal Information:
I was born in Dalton Ga, raised in Central IL, moved to Orlando, Fl for a little while between the ages of 22 and 23 and then I moved back to Central IL. Married my college sweetheart and the only boyfriend I had ever had and stayed in IL for our first year of marriage. Now we live in the BIG state of TX and I am loving it! Life is a little crazy right now, but I am ok with that. I am ready to take on new challenges and learn new things!

Anyhow...I went to Lincoln Christian College for 3 semesters and started off as a music (vocal) major and decided that being undecided was really what I wanted ;)...Did that for awhile and quit because school is too dang expensive. I eventually wanna do something in the art and music field, but I am not exactly sure what. I am learning so much about who I am and what I want and what I will be...I am not in any hurry. I have lots of life left---if I get healthy. Thats so much of why I am doing this "Lifestyle change" I wanna live long and enjoy

Other Information:
Favorite Movies:
Goonies, Selena, I Am Sam, Peter Pan...

Favorite Music: Dave Matthews Band, Regina Spektor, many more.

    Happy Birthday to You!!

    Born today, August 11, you are not always as cautious as you should be, and as a result you are likely to find yourself in considerable danger on occasion, but your native resourcefulness and your almost fearless approach to life will see you through in most cases. You are open to all manner of surprises, and you know how to reap the maximum gains from a situation that you did not even know was developing; when it is upon you, you simply improvise your way to a profitable outcome. The fact that you keep moving forward, no matter what you may be facing, is often a major factor contributing to your success.

    Money is likely to be an issue for you throughout your lifetime, and you are likely to be no stranger to its lack or abundance; indeed, you may be both rich and poor again and again throughout your lifetime, as money comes to you -- and leaves again -- on a cyclical basis.

    Today’s Leo Horoscope: You may be able to score a come-from-behind victory, but you may have to do one or two things you are not used to doing to make it happen.

    Hope your day is wonderful!

    Ugh!! Tell me about it:) I was a bridesmaid in a "destination wedding" this past internet and just surrounded by food and drinks for like FOUR days!! It took me almost three weeks to lose my first four pounds and I don't even want to look at the scale right now because I feel like i gained all back in about two days. Oh well just gotta get back on track but it is hard! I hope things are going well for you, I'm going to wait til Sunday to way myself:)
