S/C/G: 235/ticker/135

Height: 5'4

Default

Screen Name: ParkTrot

Age/Age Range: 18

Family Life: I've been with the same (wonderful) guy for over a year and a half now. Other than him, I have a 9 yearold Arabian gelding named Legs, and my Grandmother who I am currently residing with.

Occupation: College Student

Hobbies and Interests: I've been competing in equestrian competitions for over 10 years now, and I am currently showing my Arabian on the National/International level. Other than that, friends and college.

Favorite Music: Anything that seems like it could fit in at a raging dance party.

Favorite Color(s): Pink, and teal.

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: I LOVE "running" on at the gym on the Precor AMT - that thing is awesome. Also going hiking, cycling, and riding my horse.

What are your fitness/health goals? To get this flippin weight off once and for all. I've lost it before, gained it back, and this time I am losing it a sticking to it.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? When I started realizing my weight made it so I was no longer comfortable in certain social situations, and when I noticed how easily winded I was just going up some stairs.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? Oh gosh...just not believing it can happen I suppose. Even though I've already done this before, I still can't imagine my body being thin...it seems impossible.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? I need to start being better about my food log, and I need to actually stick to my diet as a fulltime thing, and not take "days off".

(Evil motivation) Who do you want to look better than? : Everyone . No not really, I just want to look darn good next to my friends.

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? Sexy Halloween costume. I have no idea why it's that thing specifically, just is.
