Well, my name is Sarah. I am a 23-year old college student. I received my BS of Animal Science in December 2010 and will graduate in May 2015 as a veterinarian.

I've always been a bit on the heavy side but my weigh has slowly crept up. Back in 2010 I found spark and lost 20 pounds in a few months. I was happy and healthier. Then I let school, my excuses and bad habits get in the way.

Well, my name is Sarah. I am a 23-year old college student. I received my BS of Animal Science in December 2010 and will graduate in May 2015 as a veterinarian.

I've always been a bit on the heavy side but my weigh has slowly crept up. Back in 2010 I found spark and lost 20 pounds in a few months. I was happy and healthier. Then I let school, my excuses and bad habits get in the way.

In 2011, I worked at a horse farm in Kentucky and found myself down to 213lbs. It was the smallest I could ever remember. Then once again: school, excuses and more bad habits led my weigh to right back to the beginning.

I am trying to get on track this summer and build healthy so that when classes start this fall (supposedly my most difficult semester) I can't derail. I am committed to losing weight to be healthier and to be more fit. Heart disease runs in the men in my family and I want to make sure that it doesn't happen to me.

My eventual goal is to weigh 160 but I am changing my goals to go in increments as to not freak myself out.

Hopefully you all are progressing in your goals and I would love any words of encouragement or advice you could give me.

Yes, I figured it out! I took my arms out a little wider and let my hands flay out toward the sides, allowing the bar to sit on my shoulders.

I still get tired after just 5. I have been finishing up with a set or two of back squats too... my goal is to do 10 of the thruster things without having to break them up into 5/5. We'll see if I get there. It's hard!

Hey girl! Thanks for the comment on my blog. The more I think about it the more I think you're right - I don't want to sell myself short. I've been pushing myself all year to do things I never thought possible, so why stop now? Why CAN'T I do 2 half marathons in a month? Exactly. There is no reason!
