"My fault, my failure is not in the passions I have, but in my lack of control of them."

2014 - With the new year once again comes a renewed motivation and determination to become my best self mind, body, and spirit. 2013 was a hard year with hardships, stress, and more mindless eating. My grandmother passed in September 2012 and it hit me hard. I swore off sugar, bread, and anything processed in search for a new healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately I slowed drifted back to my old ways. Now I've just found out that her sister (my great aunt) had a massive heart attack and it has once again renewed my determination. Heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity are rampant in my family. I am a stress eater. I eat when I'm depressed, when I'm upset, and when I'm happy. I have a passion for good food and sweets but I desperately need to get control of my eating before I do irreversible damage.

My Goals:
Feel good in my skin again.
-Feel comfortable in clothes.
-Wear a size 4 comfortably.
-Be able to do a 1 hour cardio session without breaks.
-No sugar, processed foods, bread.
-More healthy protein and vegetables and more water!

My Program:
I've tried several times and really feel a difference in using it. Plus it's free! So right now I will focus on my eating the most and do at least one form of exercise each day. I have NO cardio - my lungs always feel like they will explode so I need to work myself up to do a full workout.

Personal Information:
I'm from a small, country town in south Georgia. A few years ago I moved to another small speck of a town in called Temple. I love it here and it gives me the opportunity to enjoy the rural, country sunshine. I love anything artistic or outdoors.

    It was harder than I thought when I first went gluten-free too. Trying to avoid all possible methods of contamination proved to be a pain. But in the end, any effort is worth it because you will feel so much better! I'm also a vegetarian, so there are even less foods that I can eat. (Let alone the fact that I also can't eat some fruits, veggies, almonds or xanthan gum).

    And yet! There's still hope. I eat the fruitsand veggies my stomach approves of and also nuts, seeds, beans, certified gluten-free oats, millet, quinoa, brown rice... I'm certainly not left wanting for food.

    You can do it!

    Heeey! I’m glad you found my page too!! We do have pretty much the same goals. I actually gained weight exactly the same way you did. I graduated high school at 125lbs and once college started it was all downhill from there. I know this is not the size my body wants to be right now. I’m glad you found some ideas for meals too! Ughh unfortunately I am really not exercising at all right now. I have a hairline fracture in my foot and a sprained ankle so I just got off crutches and can’t do too much. I realize there are modified exercises I can do in the meantime but I just get sad I can’t do cardio so I don’t do anything. I need a new plan I know =/ I will definitely check out your page on a regular basis too. We can do this!! And holding each other accountable and providing/asking for advice will only help both of us on our journey! Congrats and keep up the good work :)
