The mantra that I had to tell myself from the beginning, and now I take action instead of just thinking about it.

To anyone who stumbles across this, YOU CAN DO IT!!! Whatever it is; losing weight, eating healthier, getting a better mindset, or a combination of those, you can do it! Don't let anyone, even yourself, say otherwise.
UPDATE: In 2014, I was able to almost get to my goal weight, but then in 2015 I was slammed with a lot of stress, coupled with the crapstorm that was 2016, gained a lot of the weight back and then some to 170 lbs. My husband and I were diagnosed with medical conditions (not related to weight) that led us altering our diet drastically, and by the end of the year, he lost 40 lbs and I 30 lbs. We vary between Whole30 and Paleo, and it has been working very well for us.

I have fibromyalgia, and am on working on getting active again, but have to proceed with caution since one wrong move and I'm done for the week painwise. Been weight training and yoga again, and hope to get to my goal weight by April so I can work on maintaining my weight this time around.

I joined in 2012 but didn't start seriously recording my food/fitness/weight til January 2014 haha.

Overall, I'm one of those people who have see-sawed back and forth between fit and healthy, and, well, unfit and unhealthy. In 2005, when I was 16, I was at my lowest at 108lbs (me being 5'4, I was a little uncomfortable with that since it was really low. I had aimed for 112 and my metabolism was still kicking); last year I peaked at my heaviest, 164lbs. I have been going back and forth since puberty, essentially. The last three years though have been quite a challenge; I gained 30 lbs, lost 15, then regained 30 more in that time span. I decided that I was sick and tired of feeling like crap and actually do something about it; not just exercising and eating healthier, but to maintain a healthy weight for the rest of my life without rebounding within a year.

I started exercising October 2013, but then shot myself in the foot in December 2013 by not only regaining the weight I had lost but gaining more weight because I love sweets. So I haven't exactly joined the bandwagon of exercising daily once New Years hit (not a bad bandwagon to join though!), but I do need to eat a lot healthier. Thus far I have been a lot more strict about my diet, and have lost weight already :)

I am currently on HasFit and Zombie Run right now; it's varied, and I don't think I'll burn out of it. I have done Insanity, and I got really bored of it (it was a great work out though! I just like stregnth training more than Cardio). Currently looking into Belly Dancing.

One of the coolest things I can say is that I lived in Tokyo, Japan (for Study Abroad, but still counts).
