Fall 2006. I love everything about it: the arms, the stomach, the jawline, and the tan.

Hi :) My name is Stacy....I'm almost 22, and I am finally doing something serious for myself.

I've always struggled with weight, as does my entire family, and at 22 years old, I know I should be healthier than I am now.

As I was growing up, I always knew that I was bigger than everyone else, but it wasn't until middle school that it really started meaning something to me. Unfortunately, it's taken ten years for me to actually do anything about it.

With this new start, I know that I can push myself to becoming who I know I can be, and I'm going to keep myself accountable by sharing my progress here with anyone who cares to follow.

I am currently 5'6" (which is never going to change haha) and I weigh 237 pounds. Throughout my journey (as cliché as it sounds, that's exactly what it is: a life-long journey), I am going to post my progress and downfalls here.

I have faith in everyone, but I think it's also important to have faith in yourself.

My Goals:
Currently, my goal is to simply be healthy. I have family history of high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and Type 2 Diabetes.

I don't want to add to those aspects of my family history.

My Program:
Currently, accountability is the program I'm following.

My best friend and I are helping each other: she's helping me with exercise, and I'm helping her with food choices.

Plus, the accountability of posting results here helps, too.

Personal Information:
I'm somewhere between 5'5" and 5'6" -- so I'm not short, but I can't be compared to giraffe, either.
I usually end up gaining back whatever I lose, but I am determined to do something for myself now.
God is my salvation, my family is amazing, and my best friend is fabulous.

Other Information:
I'm not one for over-sharing, especially on the internet, but I don't intend for this to become a "must-do" -- that would just turn me off of wanting to do it.

Instead, I'm counting on this to become a "want-to-do" -- the joy of posting results and choices here being the satisfaction I get.

That may change, though. :)
