I have never been in my ideal weight range. At 5'8" with a medium frame, I am aiming for 150 as my goal weight (the top number for my ideal weight randge). At my thinnest, which was more than 10 years ago when I was 18-19 years old, I was still technically 20 pounds overweight. I looked pretty good, but I still didn't have a flat stomach.

I met my now ex-husband at that weight. Then, over the course of about 5 years, I gained 50 pounds. Four years ago I went on Nutrisystem, which is a wonderful diet plan. I lost 30 pounds! But, unfortunately I got tired of the food (eating the same things over and over again) and the price tag. I gained most of the weight back.

I tried Weight Watchers in 2010 to lose some weight before the wedding. I found it hard to stick to the points system, because I felt I was always starving with my suggested amount of points. I also didn't like how I didn't know how much protein and other factors I was getting.

Then, last July, my husband decided to call it quits on our relationship after 10 years of being together, 2 of those as a married couple. I became seriously depressed. I started taking Zoloft, and quickly gained 20 pounds. Even after I took myself off of the medication, the weight did not go away. I eventually stopped going to the gym as well.

Then, miracle of miracles happened; after being separated from my husband for a year and a month, I met my boyfriend who loves and accepts me for who I am--on the outside and in. He tells me I'm beautiful at this weight and would still be at any weight, but that he'll support my decision to lose weight if that is what I want to do.

I need to do this for me. My clothes are too small, and I do not feel good about myself. I want to look and feel better, and regain some confidence and self-worth after such a painful year. I need to take action now.

My Goals:
First, I want to get back to the weight I was at after Nutrisystem. Then I will continue on to get to my goal.

I want to start working out weekday mornings (3-5x per week) and at least 1x on the weekend.

My Program:
I need to start going to bed earlier so that I can wake up early to work out. That way I can get to work earlier and burn calories all day at my desk. Then, when I come home at night, I can relax and cook dinner and do chores.

I already drink a lot of water, but I need to get back into eating more fruits and vegetables.

Personal Information:
I'm a web editor for a major broadcast company's website. I was originally pursuing television production, but couldn't get a job in the field. I am, however, very happy with what I am doing now. :)

I live in Atlanta and absolutely love it. I've been here for more than five years now. I have great friends, and I love everything the city has to offer. Growing up in a small town really makes you appreciate the big city!
