I'm doing this because I'm inspired by one of my friends.
I am also sick of feeling like this.
I have printed this picture out and put it near the TV. I should also put one on the fridge.

This is the reason that I'm working out at 4am.
This is the reason that I'm tracking my food.
This is the reason that I'm controlling my portions and eating better.
I want to fit in to clothes better, I want to look into the mirror and not feel ashamed. I want to look good, but I also want to feel better. Granted, the last 3 months I've been working out and I *do* feel stronger and more fit, but I don't look it.
I'm going to keep it up, and I'm going to keep going strong.

This is me today, August 26th, 2012.
Let's see how I look down the road.

    Dawn -- I've also put it on my computer -- somewhere where I will see it all the time and be reminded that this is NOT what I want to remain for the rest of my life, and this is why I am working my butt off to change! It will be rewarding once I get there, but I have to remember that this journey is going to be tough but I'm strong enough to conquer it. Sure, I'll screw up but I won't let it get me down. I'll have to just keep looking at that picture and reminding myself that I will not let myself live like this any longer
    I'm still so proud of you and your progress -- it may not seem like much but you really are doing great! You've definitely been a huge inspiration for me emoticon WE CAN DO THIS!!
