The name is Ashley, I'm 21 and I live in the midtown area (which is sandwiched between downtown and east Sacramento, if you didn't know!) I'm making a commitment to myself this time around. I'm trying to become a correctional officer with the state, and I realize now that this whole process is directly tied into a huge part of my prospective future.

I've struggled with body issues since as early as kindergarten, though I wasn't even significantly overweight until I was about 18. Looking back, I was so thin and pretty and it's a shame that I couldn't get past comparing myself to my stick-thin Vietnamese best friend.. haha.

More than losing weight and looking better, I need to prove to myself that I *can* accomplish this mountain of a task by taking it one step at a time. I need to remind myself that I deserve to be healthy and happy too.

So I'm looking for some support to help me along the way. I can be supportive too! We all know how to give good advice, it's the doing it ourselves that is difficult. ;). I'm also interested in meeting some new people in the area to maybe walk with, something to get me out of the house and exercising without being insanely self-conscious. That would be aaawesome.

Alright, I'll stop rambling now. Thanks to whoever took the time to read this stuff! ;)
