I'm really bad at these introduction thingies, but I'm 26, from Chicago, and am here to lose weight and finally feel comfortable in my own skin (not to mention a bikini!). I'm committed to tracking my meals and exercising daily, and I'd love to make some friends and help each other along the way. Feel free to message/comment, and good luck to you all!
~~~UPDATE 2/23/13~~~
I'm down 15 pounds, I look better, feel better, have more energy, can honestly call myself a runner, and I owe it all to Spark People!
Running the Chicago Half Marathon 9/8/13 and can't wait!!!
