"Believe that you can run farther or faster. Believe that you're young enough, old enough, strong enough, and so on to accomplish everything you want to do. Don't let worn out beliefs stop you from moving beyond yourself" -Runner's World

For as long as I can remember I have wanted to be healthy and fit and confident in my own skin. I reached my lowest weight when I was a freshman in H.S. by basically not eating, which followed closely by gaining back all the weight i had lost and then some. Since then those stupid pounds have been hanging over me and I have been in a constant cycle of dieting and working out but never being able to get my eating under control to reach my goal.

Last year I went from 194 to 178 in just a few months because i started training for a half marathon with my friends, but that was cut short as a result of a knee injury. Since then I have been hanging out in the 171-175lb range. It's time for me to put a valid effort into changing my life so I can be proud of my results and finally be comfortable in my own skin.

SP has been such an amazing tool. I have learned so much since joining last year and I love reading about all these amazing inspirational stories of real people who have transformed their lives by starting to make healthier choices. My goal is to one day be an inspiration to someone else...

"Your destiny isn't what you are doing, it's who you are becoming.."

“Life is either a daring adventure...or nothing” Helen Keller

"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given then to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing."

    No worries hon! Glad you are doing well. Good luck with wrapping things up and congrats on almost being home. Pretty exciting! Great job maintaining too! I've been pretty good. Moving along and losing at a steady pace which is always motivating. Have a safe trip home!

    Your family is going to be so surprised when you get back! Good Job though! When I lived in Japan I gained about thirty pounds because of all the yummy Asian food. I'll have to keep you as an inspiration next time I get a job over there again.
