Hello everyone! My name is Jessica but I go by Jessie or Jess, sometimes the occasional "Hey you!' as well! ;) I'm 23 years young and I've been overweight the majority of my life. As soon as my mom purchased our first computer growing up, my life completely changed - I was glued to that computer screen and basically stopped playing outside! I'm here to change that!

Member Since: 9/15/2013

My Goals:
My long term goals:

1.) Lose 127 lbs
2.) Learn to eat healthier.
3.) Exercise daily.
4.) Inspire others to lose weight.
5.) Run a 5k!

My short term goals:

1.) Quit drinking pop!
2.) Drink more water!
3.) Learn portion control.
4.) Keep with my exercise regimen.
5.) Learn that it is not a 'diet' but a life style change!

My Program:
I'm currently taking baby steps in order to help me reach my goal! The first few baby steps I'm doing right now, are:

1.) Quitting pop.
2.) Drinking more water.
3.) Begin to exercise.

I've always drank nothing but pop, never drank water, and been a couch potato. I figure those were going to be my first three baby steps to get me going!

Personal Information:
I'm from a small town of about 30k people in East Central, Illinois! I'm the youngest of five - I've got three sisters and one brother.

Currently, my fiance and I live with my sister and her family (her husband and three active little boys) because we've hit a hard time financially. I don't have any children (yet) but I pray that it will happen sometime in the near future.

Other Information:
Currently Reading:
Dragonfly In Amber by Diana Gabaldon - Book 2 in the Outlander series!

Previously Read/Highly Recommended:
1.) The Shadowfell series by Juliet Marillier
2.) The Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead
3.) The Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead
4.) The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare

    Thanks for the friend add! Your Vince Lombardi quote is perfect, because that is what it takes.

    I'm almost twice your age, so I've tried and failed to lose weight for many, many years. But I promise you, that if you keep at it and never give up, you will get there! No matter what, through the ups and downs, even if you slip back for a while, keep at it!

    Stay in touch...I want to congratulate you, when you run your 1st 5K!
    I know you can do it!!

    I have actually printed out the C25K program before, when I was getting ready to just WALK my first 5K back in July. Just wanted to see what it was like.

    Right now I'm not far enough along with the new knees to be able to run, especially not at my current weight (226). But it's on my bucket list!
