Hey, I'm here now, finally. It has taken me a while, but I'm here. At that point in my life where I know that I need to make a change. A big change. I need to start living a healthier life, lose some major weight, truly be here for my family, and actually start to be happy with myself. Today is only the begining, but with help and some honest motivation on my part (for the first time) than maybe I will see some real results. Wish me luck..

My Goals:
I'm gonna start with some smaller goals and work my way up.. Like get more sleep, so I actually have the energy to be motivated. Get more organized. I'm a smoker, so I would like to cut down, if not quit smoking all together. Start drinking more water. Eat smaller portions and eat less fatty and sugary foods. Excersize for at least 10-20 min. a day. And last but not least, my reason for making all of these changes... Try to lose about 50 lbs. by the end of summer...

My Program:
I just started, but so far, I am waking up at about 7-8 in the morning. (I am a horrible morning person and I go to bed way to late). Eat a healthy breakfast right away. excersize for about 10-20 min. Try to curb my hunger by drinking lots of water and maybe have a small low calorie snack. Eat a small luch. Play with my daughter. Come on here as much as possible. Drink some more water. Eat a healthy dinner and have some frozen yogurt for dessert. Then go to bed somewhat earlier than I used to. But most of all, WATCH MY PORTIONS AND FIGHT THE HUNGER!!!!! :)

Personal Information:
Hey everyone. To start, my name is Mariah, I'm from MA. and I'm 25 years old. I have an amazing husband (who is also much skinnier than me, haha). Together we raise a beautiful and remarkable 4 (almost 5) year old little girl. Everything in my life is going great, except for my health and weight (and money, but lets just handle one thing at a time.)
I have always been a big girl and the only time I wasn't chubby was when I was about 5 or 6, but its been a long time sense those days.. :) The lowest (in my adult life was about 160 lbs. and even then I was more unhealthy than I am now.
Food has always been a comfort type of thing for me. I lOVE to eat, so I know that this is going to be extremely hard for me. But at this point in my life I would take being alive and healthy (and thin) over food. I have a great feeling about this. And I know it takes time (which will be the hardest part for me). But if I start to live better, time will be on my side!

Other Information:
I love to be with my family and friends, play with my daughter, relax with my husband, write, paint, draw, read, listen to all kinds of music, watch tons of movies, be outside, go dancing, cook, be nice to people, and as strange as it sounds, work..
I have battled (and continue to battle) some horrible and life threatening addictions, lost some loved ones because of that same addiction, met a wonderful man with the same troubles, overcame those troubles, had a beautiful child together who saved mine and his lifes. Became a adult, Got my first real job and the age of 23, created a home and safe haven for my family, continue to pay the bills and survive with limited income.. So, if I can achieve all of this, why can't a live a healthy lifestyle, right? :)
