S/C/G: 155/152/125

Height: 5'4

Default

Screen Name: Vernie822

Age/Age Range: 19 (almost 20!!)

Family Life: Oldest of 5 kids, 3 boys and 1 girl! My brothers are 17, 12 and 9, and my sister is 14.

Occupation: Full time student, but in the summer I work at a local bakery, also as a math tutor and babysitter.

Hobbies and Interests: My passion is math. I also love baseball. I love being around my friends and family and just enjoying life. As far as activities go, I was a cheerleader for ten years. I also enjoy swimming. Running and walking are my exercise of choice when I'm not at college using the machines!

Favorite Music: I'm a huge country music fan but I also love alternative, rock, top 40 stuff too!

Favorite Color(s): Navy blue, pink, yellow

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: I love running and walking because it just is so peaceful to me. At school, I like to use the elliptical (sp?) as well as the treadmill.

What are your fitness/health goals? To be healthy and have a bikini body. I want to get on track where I can work out every day and continue that during the school year. I also want to be eating healthy and not constantly eat sweets and replace meals with snacks, which sometimes happens at school.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? I realized after my freshman year at school that my stomach and legs were much bigger than I thought. Even after eating healthy for a week, I feel so much better!

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? I struggle with convenience. I work early (4 AM) on the weekends and I absolutely struggle with trying to not eat the bakery foods. Also, this makes me tired and not want to work out the rest of the day. I struggle with consistency because my friends like to go out to eat, and I feel bad declining. I am learning to make time to exercise even if it means waking up earlier. I struggle with sleep, because on the weekends, sometimes I only get 4 hours or even less because I work so early. I am realizing how vital it is to get 8 hours of sleep a night.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? I need to exercise daily and stick with it, stop eating out/eating sweets and snacks, and stay consistent!

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than?: Not really a certain person, but I can say I would like to look like the models and girls my age who have flat stomachs!

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? A BIKINI!! For sure!!!

Walk 7 miles per week on average, trying to build up to 15 miles.

What are your fitness/health goals?
To lose weight, and be healthy. I want to learn how to make good eating decisions as a second nature

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit?
I HAVE ALWAYS been dieting. I really don't have a certain point. I have tried so many fad diets that is not even funny, I have tried diet pills. The whole point is I just haven't been able to stay on it.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health?

stop yo-yo dieting, listening to everyone else, and lose weight for myself.

lol, I want to look better than I do right now!

A two piece bikini again, and shop at the mall without a problem. Goodbye Torrid hello my old american eagle jeans : )


A little more about me:

I am a new member on here, but I have known about this site for quite awhile. The people I see on here who have counted calories and lost weight have inspired me to count calories. I have been counting calories for 2 weeks now, and I already feel better!! If you have any advice about my regitiamate below then please let me know because I want to lose this weight now that I am young so I don't have this burden the rest of my life!!!!!!

Regitamate:

1400 - 1500 calories per day

Walk at least 7 miles a week.

I used a calorie counter on my cell phone, and it has really helped. I weighed 255, and I am not going to weigh myself but once a month because I am really bad about obcessing myself with the scale!!. I use to weigh 145 pounds back in 2006, and after I had my daughter I began to stress out and the weight just piled on. I gained weight in 2007, and I have been yo-yoing from 225 to 255. I gain and lose that 30 pounds constantly, and I am ready to bypass all of it. I am ready to lose the weight!!! So I do need some support I will try to post everyday! So be my buddy if you would like to be!!!!
