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

Hi, thanks for the kind comment on my blog! I'm only a few days into going gluten free but I have noticed a decrease in my appetite. I am very thrilled with that so hopefully it works well for me!

Oh my, that is so funny! I lived in Iowa City in 2007-2008 and I worked at Walmart, so most likely I did see you if you ever came in! I'm pretty good at remembering faces, lol
