Back on Track (Finally!)

How do I introduce myself? I'm a single twenty-something living in Queens, working in Manhattan. I hate that my weight holds me back from being "all that I can be." I walk around midtown and see these thin, professional women who look so classy in their suits and I feel frumpy. I have struggled with my weight my whole life. Four years ago I started a journey to losing weight. I lost about 115 pounds from November 2008 - November 2011. Over the course of the last 7 months, I gained about ...
How do I introduce myself? I'm a single twenty-something living in Queens, working in Manhattan. I hate that my weight holds me back from being "all that I can be." I walk around midtown and see these thin, professional women who look so classy in their suits and I feel frumpy. I have struggled with my weight my whole life. Four years ago I started a journey to losing weight. I lost about 115 pounds from November 2008 - November 2011. Over the course of the last 7 months, I gained about 40lbs back.

I ordered Nutrisystem and am following that, but I decided to start using this site again because I prefer SparkPeople and Nutrisystem is a temporary "kick start" to my weight loss and if I'm already in the habit of looking HERE then I think I'll be able to continue when I stop ordering their food.

My Goals:
Get myself to a weight that I am happy with. I used to have a number in my head but I don't want to focus on that because it seems impossible.

I want to be able to shop at 'normal' clothing stores. I want to fit into the seats at the theater. I want to feel confident and attractive when I meet people. I want to dress nicely for work and not look like a slob because of my fat rolls.


My Program:
I'm currently on Nutrisystem. I supplement vegetables and protein. I try to stay away from pasta, bread, etc. But when I do eat it, it is whole wheat. I have to be on Nutrisystem for another month, per the agreement I made. But after that it will be portion control, counting, tracking, etc. Much like I am now.

Personal Information:
Live in Flushing.
Work in Manhattan.
Hang out in L.E.S.
