I'm here to actually conquer two goals.

Weight loss is obviously my focus. I've been overweight for all of my adult life and have been struggling with emotional eating/self-esteem issues for my entire life. I'm 23 now and I'm ready to change.

I'm hesitant about this whole site because I've started this sort of thing PLENTY of times before and have never gotten very far. I'm not sure how to make it "stick". It's worth a shot, though.

I also suffer from social anxiety problems (and depression, but that's another story). It's gotten really bad over the last few years and seems to be at an all-time low for me right now. I have a very hard time with any sort of social interaction, but I need to start somewhere, and online is probably the safest place. So here I am!

Fitness Minutes: 365

My Goals:
Goal 1: 180lbs!
Goal 2: 170lbs!
Goal 3: 160lbs!
GOAL FOUR: 150lbs!

Dream goal...138lbs!

I have a very hard time rewarding myself, so I need to be creative and think of some things to keep me going!


My Program:
I have real problems with shutting off my head, so any kind of exercise that keeps my head and body busy are the best! I've found that I do best with exergaming - I use my Wii almost exclusively for exercise. DDR is a great workout. I want to add more games to my routine though, because the same old stuff is getting old.

I need to pinpoint areas to improve in my diet (not a small task, my diet is awful). Currently just monitoring and looking for trends. Also trying to get in a daily vegetable :)



Personal Information:
I'm a geek, through and through. I love books, video games (RPGs specifically), and science. I just got a master's degree, now I'm looking for work (and trying not to get discouraged).
