My name's Melissa. I'm 26 years old, and I'm a second degree student. My first degree is in psychology, and my second degree will be in nursing. I'm hoping to go into psychiatric nursing when I graduate this August. My life--- school, husband, puppy--- keeps me pretty busy, so finding the time to work out and to eat right can be difficult!
I've never been overweight. I've always been within the "normal" or "average" weight range. However, being only 5 feet tall means that those 10 "vanity pounds" can really pack a whallop. So my goal is to lose a few pounds so that I can feel healthy, happy, and--- yes--- sexy!
I started my real weight loss journey at the beginning of December, weighing in at 117 pounds. Its now towards the end of December, and I'm currently weighing in at 111 pounds. So I've lost 6 pounds already, and I've got 6 more pounds to go to get to my goal weight--- 105 pounds.
My overall goal isn't really to "lose weight." Yes, losing those vanity pounds is part of it, but my real goal is to embrace life. I want to live more, love more, and be happy. I'm going into the New Year determined to try new things, meet new people, and have more fun!
Anyway that is all I can think of to say about myself. If there's anything else you'd like to know, then don't hesitate to ask me!
My weight loss goal is to reach 105 pounds. My personal goal is to be happy! I am yearning to try new things--- such as rock climbing, snowboarding, and more. I'm already in the process of learning archery, and I'm having a blast with it! I'd also love to do a 5k run and/or a mudder!
I'm tracking my food intake daily. It helps me to plan my food intake the day before, that way I can stick to it more easily. My exercise includes mostly cardio, such as walking, running, zumba, or step aerobics. I also lift weights, as well as do archery, which requires a great deal of upper body strength! I try to do my cardio activities for an hour 3-5x/week, and I try to do my weight lifting 2-3x/week as needed.
I'm from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Home of the Steelers and the Penguins (well, if we were having a hockey season at all this year...)!
