What are your fitness/health goals? I'm around 190-200lbs (not quite sure as I've not weighed my self in awhile) and I'm 5'7.5, so I'm trying to get down to 140, at least.
What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? When I was in a longterm relationship (where we lived together) and he started getting annoyed because I was afraid to get naked in the light. Even before that, though, I've been wanting to lose weight. I just didn't get motivated until that incident.
What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? Getting motivated enough to exercise. I'm sooo extremely lazy and sometimes keep saying I'm going to do it but never do.
What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? being committed to it, keeping up with it, and staying focused.
(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? : My friends, some family members, other girls I know of, Tyra lol.
What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? This little dress that I have.
