I'm 23 and I am on the road to becoming healthy! I reached my highest weight of 274 and am aiming for a first goal of 175. I've got a long way to go but I am going.

1/9/12: Weight - 274.0
Just got back from the holidays. A three week trip away from home and around delicious things has taken me to my highest weight of all time. I am feeling very ashamed, but really ready to succeed this time. About to start BLC 18!

9/24/11: Weight - 260.0
I am one week in on a good schedule. Trying C25k again and Zumba on Saturdays. Really trying to make this a lifestyle and not just a weight loss kick.

9/3/11: Weight - 263.0.
Oh boy. Can't seem to get this. Just finished a big move to Memphis and have started grad school. I keep telling myself there are no excuses and I need to work out but haven't kicked myself in gear yet. Here's to hoping!

7/8/11: Weight - 256.6.
Struggled with eating and exercising the last 5 months. I've been all over the place. Just hoping something will *click* for me and I will start heading towards healthy.

2/13/11: Weight - 254.4.
Have lost close to 10 pounds in 5 weeks and am feeling pretty good! I ran my first 5k yesterday and ended with an official time of 55:07. I was last in my age group, but I finished. Next time I will aim to get under 45 min and not be last in my age group.

    Hope this finds you doing well Kayla. My Kayla has a new trick - she quacks like a duck. We have mallards that come to our feeder and I guess she must think they are her "friends". Ha!

    Hope all this stormy weather hasn't affected you. There sure has been a lot of it.

    Keep smiling!

    Press On!

    Hahaha well I am not that good with the weight loss this time! I gained some ounces over the weekend unfortunately, which is really uncommon for me. Oh, well!

    I'm sooo glad you lost 10 lbs from your high weight! That's awesome! I definitely agree with you on the scale thing- it really does drive me insane. I am back in BLC so maybe I'll try to weigh like twice a week or something. It really does get me down. I do need to make sure I'm making "long term changes." That's probably why I always yoyo because a lot of the stuff I do is just not possible for life.

    Classes at the Y sound awesome too. I'm so excited you joined a gym! I do not have that kind of ambition. Sucks about the warts and being sick though. Where were you on vaca to?! I have one coming up in a couple months that I'm trying to lose a little weight for, but we'll see.

    My plans are trying to do a more long term thing, as in, don't feel so guilty about eating 'crap' sometimes because that is obviously going to be life. I have been SO weak all weekend because I spend the weekends at my boyfriends apartment and we always would order in like pizza or chinese, or go out to dinner and have suchhh delicious food. So saturday I think he was tired of me being weak (all day thurs/fri/sat I was complaining how I wanted 'real food') so he suggested we have a 'cheat day.' Naturally I was all about the idea, as I've never ever done that in my 'diets' before. So we did and I was in a state of euphoria at the first taste of french fries.... but afterward I felt guilty, of course. Ate fine yesterday, but apparently not fine enough seeing as I gained a little over the weekend.

    So far no exercise, I can't find my Ipod and I cannot do anything without it. Plus grad school is SOOO busy this semester, it's crazy. So anyway- I guess right now- no exercise, unfortunately cutting calories :( haha. Today marks one week so I'm hoping that maybe it'll get easier! I do feel better, but seeing the # on the scale not moving is/was depressing, so we shall see. I feel blahhh.

    ANYWAY long story short - or not really- we totally do have a 5k getaway to work toward. Provided I don't go weak. I'm really trying to give this my best shot (again!) BLC starts weds so I'm hoping it'll kick me into gear a little bit.

    212 today, Kayla. Where are you girlfriend?! Totally in need of your words of wisdom.

    I had a tantrum in walmart yesterday because my boyfriend wouldn't let me get mcdonalds. 22 years old and I was walking around the store like a 6 year old telling him that healthy food is boring and my life isn't fair. You should have seen it. At the time he was laughing at me and I totally did NOT think it was funny, but now I actually think it's both funny AND pathetic. Glad I got through it. Focusing on getting below 200 once again, waiting for you to join me. I know you're out there somewhere!

    Hoping you get these emails and I can persuade you to come back by relentlessly posting on your wall ;) :)

    I'll be here waiting for you!

    I decided to write on your wall anyway because I know you'll see it eventually.

    Anyyyyyway. So when I came back in like jan or feb or something I was up to 203 from 186, and YESTERDAY I really came back for REAL and I was 218. So, yeah. Problem.

    I'm really ready to rumble this time. I know what I need to do I'm just going to go for it. I even tried to look for my ipod this morning but I can't find it hahaha, but its ok. You & I are going to run a 5k together sometime, mark my words. Also, once we're both motivated again we are going to be each other texting buddies for those emergency situations.

    So my boyfriend is losing weight this time too so I'm hoping between him and everyone else on here, I can do this. Just need you back my dear!! You know where to find me, xo!

    Oh for crying out loud. I suck. So I gained 34 lbs aka I'm basically back at my starting weight.


    I hope you're here. I need you!
