Sara Smiles

Hi! I'm Sara - 25, living in Ocean View, DE, just a few miles from Bethany Beach. Most of my life I never had issues with weight, I was very active through high school and college and maintained my weight between 145 and 150 (I'm 5'9")

After college I bartended and that helped keep me active. I was on my feet 10 hours a day and constantly moving. I recently left the bar for a sales position and now spend most of my time either sitting in an office or sitting in my car. This ...
Hi! I'm Sara - 25, living in Ocean View, DE, just a few miles from Bethany Beach. Most of my life I never had issues with weight, I was very active through high school and college and maintained my weight between 145 and 150 (I'm 5'9")

After college I bartended and that helped keep me active. I was on my feet 10 hours a day and constantly moving. I recently left the bar for a sales position and now spend most of my time either sitting in an office or sitting in my car. This life style change in addition to holiday and winter weight gain put me at my highest weight ever - 168 lbs. (more than my freshman year of college. . .try the freshman 25)
My boyfriend and I also reached that "comfortable stage" in our relationship. No longer feeling the need to impress each other we both really let ourselves go. With no jeans that fit, and really no clothes that made me feel comfortable we both decided it was time for a change. Out with the junk food, processed food, and sugar - we revamped our pantry and now basically don't use anything that comes out of a package. I'm cooking myself thin, trying to eliminate anything that is unnatural, including all the chemicals in fat free versions of foods that should never be fat free. We also started walking almost every night instead of having an after work drink like we did all winter. 2 months later I've lost 13 pounds and am starting to feel like myself again. My goal is to be back to 145 by May for a friends wedding in Mexico. The summer's getting closer, and bikini season is calling. Can't wait to feel confident in one again.
