Thanks so much!

My name is Mandy. I am 24 years old. I am a professional dog sitter and am trying to become a pro Makeup artist! I haven't been super diligent in losing weight, I have lost some and then put it back on. I started out weighing about 323 a couple of years ago, probably 2006. I had been working hard but dislocated my knee in the beginning of 2010 after getting down to 243! My knee still hurts and there is really nothing you can do for it except do low impact things, unfortunately low impact doesn't help you lose as fast. I recently had my gall bladder out and am waiting to be able to exercise again! I weigh about 248 now. My over all goal is to weigh 170lbs. I love food... in fact I have always wanted to be a chef! It's kind of inhibiting weight loss lol. My husband is also a fabulous home baker. Also, I love the Biggest Loser and other weight loss shows! And I really hope to lose some weight to be able to have kids in the near future!

Feel free to add me on facebook, I won't think you're a weird stalker :) (plus I'll totally lurk your page too) I'm under Mandy Holverson MUA. (Make Up Artist)

    haha well its texas, i give it a few days for it to get hot again :P

    i usedto be the same way, but last year on christmas eve i had my tonsils taken out (...most uncomfortable thing ever). & i could drink carbonated stuff, and after wards i just was scared it would burn, so i haven't drank it since then! but trust me, i was ADDICTED.

    haha, thats funny that you mention that because that is exactly whats happening now, im doing the mix ins & today i just drank straight up 9 glasses of water!

    I HATE TAP WATER though, ESPECIALLY in houston. i think i honestly got sick from it when i moved here in june. havent tried it since. i just buy bottled. haha.

    good luck with the rest of your journey!

    My boyfriend is the same way. I'll be wearing a hoodie, gloves, and a beanie and he'll be wearing a thin shirt with shorts and sandals. Looking at him makes me cold.
    I've heard so many stories about birth control that I'm too scared to get anything, like the pill or shots. :S
    I hear weight gain is something occurs and I just couldn't stand to gain more.

    Only $200?! That's wicked cool! And your arms look fine!

    Have you seen a doctor about your knee? I did PT for a while and they taught me some exercises that I could do.

    Looking forward to talking more!
