Well after constantly gaining weight for the past 8 years I have decided that it's going to stop!! I want to lose 123 pounds by next January so I can be 140 pounds!
I haven't really set up an exercise program quite yet but when I do I will let ya know!
I am originally from the state of Wyoming, but now living in the state of Washington. My husband is in the Army so I go where goes. I have one almost five year old daughter and three cats. I am 29 years old and love to read, spend time with family and friends, go shopping, watch movies, and sing.
My biggest advice is to clean up your eats as much as possible. All the exercise in the world won't do much good if you're fueling your body with crap. Lots of lean protein, lowfat dairy, fruits & veggies, and whole grains. They say that 'abs are made in the kitchen', and it's so true.
It will be hard. You will want to give up, I know I did. But if you stick with it, you can do it!! And if you ever need someone to talk to, I will send you my messenger info. It's nice having someone going through the same things that you can chat with. =)
You're awesome and taking those first steps to living healthier and feeling better...
