All my life, I�ve never really been happy with the way I looked.

As a teenager, sitting at a perfectly admirable and healthy weight of 140 lbs, I somehow saw in the mirror a fat girl, and always was discussing with my friends the best ways to cut calories and eat healthier. I cut out a lot of unhealthy foods and felt GREAT, but I still hated the way my body looked. (Looking back on photos I am SO envious of the body THAT girl had, if only I could go back and slap some sense into her�)

After high school I started to pack on a little bit of weight but kept it maintained by working long hours on my feet at an active job and keeping my calories in check. It all went downhill when I hit college�

I�m a Tourism Management graduate from a 2 year program, and over the course of those two years, my weight ballooned from 140 to 175. I felt� awful. I got caught up in the numbers and just couldn�t shake the feeling that I had done this to myself. Between eating rich foods in the program (it dealt a lot with a culinary standpoint) and indulging in wine (yes, I tasted a LOT of wine during my time at college� all part of the course), as well as stress and a lack of exercise that I once loved, it wasn�t a good combination for me.

Fast forward to the year after graduation. I moved in with my now ex-boyfriend after dating for a year and got complacent. I worked a super active job as a restaurant server and often times ate the processed, unhealthy food they served there. I stopped working out. He often times brought junky food into the house� today, my weight is hovering near the 200lb mark and I�m waking myself up. A total gain of 60 pounds since high school (5 years ago) and I need to get serious.

I hope to lose a steady range of 1-2 lbs per week and be ready for a trip to Australia in late October / November and have a good amount of progress by then. My plan is to start implementing yoga into my program to enhance my flexibility and do workouts from www.dailyhiit.com 5 times weekly. They are quick, but very hard high intensity workouts that you pound out in 12 minutes� making it easy to fit into a busy lifestyle.
