So I just didnt do anything and now 11 years afterwards Im kicking my self in the butt for not being more active so now Im trying to become more active, I just wish I did it before I gained so much weight.

Height: 5'3"

Eye/Hair Color: brown/strawberry blonde

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Feb/2013

Starting Weight: 203 lbs

Present Weight: 191 lbs

Goal Weight: 135lbs

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I must say my impatience to see results and seeing "unhealthy foods" as a prohibited. Portion sizes.

Following any specific plan: currently visiting a nutritionist every 2 weeks. Now that I have more time for myself, I exercise at least an hour a day... 20-30mins resistance training (well dvds like Jillian Michaels) and then 30-40mins jogging. On weekends I am more flexible with my diet, and this has definitely helped me stay committed to my diet and exercise.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: well first of, I tend to get discouraged if I don't see quick results. I used to restrain myself from foods that I loved that may not be healthy, but learned to be balanced and allow myself to eat what I like every now and then in moderation.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I truly think that slow and steady wins the race. Even though my weight loss has been slow, for sure I feel very committed to it.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Procrastination resulting in no exercise and hating wasting food!!

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weight loss: Balancing a full time job, full time classes, 16/hr a week internship, and staying focused on my weight loss journey.

Following any specific plan: The Fat Smash Diet was suggested to me to help with managing my time to eat and portion control. I start the 9-day detox this Thursday 8/15/13

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: For the past six weeks I have made myself have time to go to the gym, 45 minutes to 1 hour Monday-Friday. This has helped me realize that I do have the time for it, I just need to make time. It has helped with my confidence in continuing this journey.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I have been able to go to the gym and focus on what I am eating because I was not working and going to school this summer, therefor I had a lot more time. Work, school, and my internship all starts in two weeks. I am very nervous about staying on track with so much going on.
