Irony: I was smiling so big cause I just picked up a pizza to eat for Papa John's Appreciation Day.










Before pictures. Bleh. This is after 14 pounds of initial weight loss from 185.

Well! I just turned 25, and I'm on the brink of some exciting life changes. After being in college for 6 years, I'm finally getting ready to graduate in May, 2013, and begin my career as an RN! It's an exciting time in my life, and I'm ready for some changes. I've become more and more comfortable with being fat, and that's NOT ok. Yo yo dieting has been my style for a long time. I've lost weight on Spark People before, and I felt GREAT, but I just let stress and distractions get in my way. ...
Well! I just turned 25, and I'm on the brink of some exciting life changes. After being in college for 6 years, I'm finally getting ready to graduate in May, 2013, and begin my career as an RN! It's an exciting time in my life, and I'm ready for some changes. I've become more and more comfortable with being fat, and that's NOT ok. Yo yo dieting has been my style for a long time. I've lost weight on Spark People before, and I felt GREAT, but I just let stress and distractions get in my way. I need to do this for myself! I know I will be a happier person when I am in shape, my knees don't hurt, and I can wear a bikini without being embarrassed.

My Goals:
My goal weight is 115 lbs. I'm loftily setting the goal date for my 26th birthday, but really, I'll be happy if I've just maintained a 20 lb weight loss by then. Taking baby steps: create one new habit at a time, and eventually, the weight will come off.

My Program:
No pop
Gluten free diet
Work out when I have time (after graduation, physical activity will become more of a priority).

Personal Information:
Single 25 year old Iowan. Snarky. Conservative. I like to judge and be judged. If I ever decide to run for office, slap me. I mean, vote for me n' stuff...but also slap me.

Other Information:
I'm very into politics. Website in progress: www.baileyconnell.wix.com/bailey

These 170s are absolutely terrible!! Looking forward to both of us breaking that!

And yes, keep running. C25K is amazing. It is so worth it in the end.

I totally understand the self diagnosis thing. i did that for artificial sweeteners and mushrooms. make sure you do research cause its amazing how many names gluten goes by. also its in things like lipstick! (wich think of how often you lick your lips or drink something that touches your lips.) I dont know how reactive you are but if you notice you're still having some reactions it might be beneficial for you to look at things like shampoo, soaps, perfumes, lotions and things like that. If you need lipstick i strongly reccomend Red Apple Lipstick. they are a bit pricey but even with all my allergies and the level of intolerance for gluten i have, i have NEVER reacted to their lipstick!! also Physicians Formula has some basic make up that is gluten free that can be found in Ulta and Target and such.

Anywho if you need anything give me a hollar im more than happy to share my experiences and knowledge!

I've never heard of the electric run but totally looking into it! The color run was awesome tho! Perfect for a first timer. And the after party was awesome. My husband was super jealous he didn't get tickets and just watched us have a blast. Even he said he'd do it next year! LOl
