2013 IS MY GOAL YEAR!!!!

Well I had a few things going on in 2012 like a big move & a new job & I let those things set me back on my weight loss journey. Over the course of the year I have gained back 30 lbs. :( I'm back & ready to finish this journey. I will hit my goal weight by the end of next year before being a bridesmaid in my best friends wedding!

Original Intro
Written 2/21/2009

Hi my name is Angela and I need to lose about 170 lbs. I've been overweight my whole life and have constantly battled it; unlike a lot of people that were once thin and gained weight in their later years. I think I've missed out on a lot in life by being this way. I'm tired of feeling like I'm missing out! I'm tired of avoiding pool parties or trips to the beach because the word "bathing suit" alone nearly has the power to send me into a panic attack. I'm tired of not being able to go to an amusement park because I'm worried that my tush won't fit in a seat. I'm tired of paying twice as much for clothes because they're having to use twice as much fabric to cover my a$$. I'm tired of people always telling me how pretty my face is instead of telling me I'm just plain pretty. I'm tired of seeing in-shape, beautiful women and WISHING I was them. I want to be called hot and I want people to be jealous of me for once. I am going to work my butt off because I want this and I am going to do it!

I've done a LOT of different diets most of which were unsuccessful; I've dieted down and lost about 50 lbs before but just ended up gaining it back plus some. I'm tired of gimmicks, hidden secrets, and fad diets. I just want the cold hard facts about diet, exercise, and nutrition. I feel like I've learned enough about it now where I can make the best decisions for my lifestyle and goals and adapt a plan I can stick to and be successful with.

Personal Information:
* My name is Angela.
* I'm 27 years old.
* I'm 5'4''
* I'm a graduate of the University of Georgia.
*My degree is in Poultry Science.
* I have a pitbull mix named Ivan whom I love dearly.
* I also have a new dog name Rusty & a kitten named Cassie!
* I'm a self proclaimed nerd!
* I love music, movies, books and animals!

*PR's:
~5k = 42:23
~10k
~1/2 Marathon

Other Information:
I watch a lot of movies. My favorite genre is horror/sci fi but I will watch anything.

I also love reading. My favorite book (so far) is The Time Travelers Wife. I'm constantly reading at least one book; usually 2 or 3 at a time. lol

Oh and I love Britney Spears! She's like my secret obsession (or maybe not so secret now). lol

When I was in middle & high school I loved to horseback ride. I had my own horse, a 17.2 hand thoroughbred which I did dressage with. When I went to college I had to sell him & I basically quit riding & gained an insane amount of weight which made it impossible for me to ride anymore (at least without guilt). So one of my biggest motivators to lose this weight is so I can start riding again! :)

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did so. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

Climb The Mountain


I tried to climb the mountain today. As I inched my way up the path, I felt out of breath and had to turn back.
I tried to climb the mountain today. But, It was so hot outside, I thought I had better stay in my nice air-conditioned house and rest up for tomorrow's attempt.
I tried to climb the mountain today. On my journey, darkness started to fall and I was full of fear, so I had to return to a safe place.
I was ready to climb the mountain today. But I had so may other things to do, so instead of climbing the mountain I took care of the much more important tasks; I washed my car, mowed the grass and watched the big game. Today the mountain will have to wait.
I was going to climb the mountain today. But as I stared at the mountain in all it's majestic beauty, I knew I had no chance of making it to the top, so I figured why even begin trying.
I had forgotten about climbing the mountain today, until an old friend came by and asked what I was up to lately. I told him about all my plans to climb that mountain someday. I went on and on about how I was going to accomplish the task.
He stopped me and said, "I just got back from climbing that mountain. for the longest time I told myself I was going to try to climb it but never made any progress."
"I almost let the dream of making it to the top die. I came up with every excuse of why I could not make it up the mountain, but never once did I give myself a reason why I could. One day as I stared at the mountain and pondered, I realized that if I didn't make an attempt at this dream all my dreams would eventually die."
" The next morning, I started my climb. It was not easy, and at times I wanted to quit. But no matter what I faced, I placed one foot in front of the other, keeping a steady pace. When the wind tried to blow me over the edge, I kept walking. When the voices inside my head screamed, stop! I focused on my goal, never letting it out of sight. I kept moving forward. I could not quit because I knew I had come too far to stop now. Time and time again, I reassured myself that I was going to finish this journey. I struggled mightily to make it to the top, but I CLIMBED THE MOUNTAIN."
"I have to be going," my friend said. "Tomorrow is a new day to accomplish more dreams. By the way what are you going to do tomorrow?"
I looked at him, with intensity and confidence in my eyes, and said, "I HAVE A MOUNTAIN TO CLIMB."Author unknown
