"The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender." - V. Lombardi

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!


~*2012 Weight Loss*~

Pre 2011 weight loss = -27.6
2011 weight loss = -67 lbs

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! :)

I hope you're having a wonderful day! As you can tell, I love quotes lol and I thought this would apply to pretty much everyone, especially myself! Hope you like it emoticon

Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.

I was looking through some quotes about dreams and this really made me think. It is completely right. I hope to try and live my life by this quote aswell. I hope you enjoy!

Our waking hours form the text of our lives, our dreams, the commentary.
