I can do this, I will do this.

Well… I cannot take it anymore.
I’m at that point where I’ve come to realize that if I don’t get my weight issues under control now, I likely never will.

I guess I should say a bit more about myself first.
I’m karlee. I’m 20, and my main goal is to lose 35 lbs by April 30th.
There are a few reasons I picked that day.
Reason 1) My 21st Birthday is April 28th
Reason 2) April 30th is exactly 101 days from now. I figured I’d return to the gym tomorrow as day one.
Reason 3) As it stands, I want to go to Punta Cana for my birthday with my very amazing handsome boyfriend.

Weight has always been an issue for me. When I was really young I packed on all that baby fat around the end of primary school. I peaked at 120 and just under 5 feet tall. I got my first gym membership at the age of 12.
High school changed my life, I saw myself lose and drop down to a healthy 105 and 5’1 through most my freshman years. I swam, I played soccer, and I was a strict vegetarian. I was happy and healthy.

Good things don’t last for ever, since I left high school 3 years ago , I’ve found myself peak at 165 and standing at 5’2 and 1/2. This is not healthy.  I am not longer a vegetarian but still do frequent the gym when I feel like it.

This blog isn’t about a temporary solution. This is me changing my life. I want to sit around 120 – 125 . I feel that is a good weight area as I am not planning on being overly muscular. My body type and frame is very petite. I fear that if I don’t change my lifestyle, the Heart Disease and Diabetes in my family, may creep up on me soon than I would like it too.

I work midnights, this is a hard thing for me to balance, as my metabolism, sleep schedule and even meal times are all over the place. I know this journey won’t be easy, but I can do it !

I’m hoping that some of you can relate, I can’t be the only one out there who suffers these issues.

Later today I plan to post my precise measurements and a before picture. I hope that this blog brings me a ton of encouragement and helps others as well.

Peace and Love,

    One thing I hope is when April 30th hits you and if you don’t lose the amount of weight you wanted, that you don’t get discouraged! It can be really frustrating, 35 pounds shouldn’t be so hard to get off should it? But sometimes it is especially those last dreadful 10 pounds!

    I wish you the best! You can totally do it!!
