Think of the world you carry within you

Hey there! My name is Liz and I'm a 22 year old, recent college graduate. I was born and raised in the fantastic state of Minnesota--I have a huge amount of state pride and want to live here for the rest of my life! I graduated in June of 2007 with a BA in English Literature and a minor in Art History. Right now, I'm transitioning away from college life and trying to find work. In the future, I may be attending graduate school to get a masters/PhD in children's literature, and after that--who ...
Hey there! My name is Liz and I'm a 22 year old, recent college graduate. I was born and raised in the fantastic state of Minnesota--I have a huge amount of state pride and want to live here for the rest of my life! I graduated in June of 2007 with a BA in English Literature and a minor in Art History. Right now, I'm transitioning away from college life and trying to find work. In the future, I may be attending graduate school to get a masters/PhD in children's literature, and after that--who knows!

I have been overweight my entire life and have gone through it all--emotional eating, eating disorders, crash diets, significant weight gain, you name it! I just reunited with SP after a long hiatus and am so excited to be back! I am outgoing and enthusiastic; I love having fun and laughing--and I am tired of my weight holding me back. I no longer want to be defined by my body, I want to be defined by ME! Please feel free to leave any comments or words of encouragement--I promise I will return the sentiment!

I cannot wait to discover the person I was meant to be. I am starting to realize that my life is full of possibilities. I am young, bright, and have the great luck of receiving an excellent education and the continual support of my family. There is no reason that I should let my weight hold me back anymore.

I am DONE being the fat girl!

I am a weight loss warrior!

My Goals:
I would like to lose at least 100 lbs from my starting weight of 246 lbs (so no big deal or anything, haha). I want to reign in my emotional eating habits, and ultimately accept and love my body. Finally, I want to be defined by my self, not my body--I am tired of being the overweight sidekick friend because I am so much more than that! Also, I want to fit into awesome clothes, be able to flirt with boys, and be enviable. ;)

Eventually I would like to become a runner and complete the Insanity workout program...I want that t-shirt!

My Program:
-Eating between 1300-1400 calories, trying to get an appropriate amount of carbs, fat, and protein. Tracking everything!
-Drinking 8+ glasses of water and 2-4 glasses of green tea.
-Exercising a lot! Cardio almost every day, mostly elliptical
-Taking a multivitamin every day
-Sparking regularly

Personal Information:
I'm enthusiastic, outgoing, and pretty silly...but because of my weight I have social anxiety issues and confidence problems. Time to change that! While in college, I was part of the amazing sorority Tri Delta...I also enjoy knitting, hanging out with friends, watching TV and reading. I'm extremely close with my family and am a firm believer that the relationships you have in your life are far more important than career achievements. I am extremely passionate about one day starting a family and want lots of kids!

Other Information:
