Hey there. My name is Amber, and I am a 25-year-old social bug. I work a full-time job and also go to school full time. I fill my spare time with friends, my loved ones, and anyone who I can have good conversation with. I also love to play board games, video games, tabletop RPGs, and card games. I love musicals, movies, reading a good book, and about as many nerdy television shows as you can list off on both hands.

In the past year, I've come to realize that I keep myself so busy so that I don't have time to think about the things I have needed to fix in my life. It is much easier to avoid the fact that I'm obese rather than just face it head-on. I don't want to go another year hating how I look, hating how unhealthy I am, and wondering what disease will come of the weight I carry on my body. I want to live a long, healthy life, and that starts with fixing how I treat myself.

And this time, I'm not giving up.

I started this recent weight loss journey in February, 2012. I was at 246 pounds. I dropped down to 195, and gained back just over 10 of that. I don't want to keep regaining. I want to lose those 10 again, and keep losing until I am within a healthy weight range.

I want to run a 5k.

I will run a 5k.

I have goals, and I will meet them. Slowly, my "if only I could" statements will turn into "Look at what I just did!" statements.

    Inboxed, and thank you so much for checking on me and asking. I didn't feel like going into it all, but I did and letting it out felt good. Another step toward releasing the bad feelings. You rock.

    Hey! Thank's so much for your comment on my page!

    I'm doing kinda blah today, not feeling so hot becuase of personal reasons + it's a grey day to end a grey blah week and I need to put it behind me.

    I'm excited to follow your blog, I'm going to go click the "notify me when this person posts" on your page so I don't miss one. You can stick with it, it sounds like a cool idea. I wasn't sure how I felt about blogging on here, even after I wrote one. It was nice to actually get comments though which I didn't expect.

    I hope you're doing okay too! Better than me at least!

    Hey there, i was clicking around on the SP site and ran across something you posted in which you said you were a 25 year old gamer. I'm a gamer too and we're the same age, and it looks like we have about the same weight to lose. We are both in the 20 somethings group and the same SP class.

    Anyway, I wanted to leave a comment on your page because I don't feel like there are enough people like me out there and I wanted to connect. Would you like to be friends?
