I want to achieve my goal weight of 150lbs by September 1. My job requires me to have some muscle, so I feel that my goal is reasonable for my height of 5'4".

I work in emergency medical services and see the devastating effects that poor diet and lack of exercise have on my patients. I don't want to be one of those women who develop heart disease at a young age. It's so easy to focus on body fat and forget about the internal effects of an unhealthy lifestyle.

I want to achieve my goal weight of 150lbs by September 1. My job requires me to have some muscle, so I feel that my goal is reasonable for my height of 5'4".

I work in emergency medical services and see the devastating effects that poor diet and lack of exercise have on my patients. I don't want to be one of those women who develop heart disease at a young age. It's so easy to focus on body fat and forget about the internal effects of an unhealthy lifestyle. Since heart disease runs in my family, I need to step up my game before it's too late.

Admittedly, vanity is a secondary motivator. I've never felt good about my body, and for once in my life I want to like what I see in the mirror. I was thin in high school but my self esteem was so low that even then I thought I was ugly.

Exercise is a challenge for me. I love to run, but getting motivated is tough. I get bored easily with exercise, especially strength training.

I also get bored with tracking my calories. I find it to be very tedious, but it's necessary. I ate over 3,000 calories one day, and that's BAD.

So, wish me luck. I'm rooting for you!

WOW! You are a convert to Byzantine Catholic? I recently heard Fr. Thomas Loya speak on Icons. He was visiting our Oratory near me. Byzantine Churches are SO beautiful!
Hope your weekend is going well!
Peace be with you!
