I'm not there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday.

My name is Samira. I'm 23. I'm a full time teacher and soon to be grad student. I crochet like crazy and I'm addicted to yarn. I've walk/ran a few 5ks. I'd like to finish a full marathon one day. More than anything though, I want to be fit and healthy. I don't want the number on the scale to hold me back from being the best I can be.

I'm breaking my weight loss into these 10 goals.
Starting Weight: 272 1/31/13
Obesity Class 2: 255 4/14/13
Weight at HS graduation: ...

My Program:
I currently have a personal trainer but can't afford to keep it up after June. I'm doing weights every other day or two and I am working on C25k slowly. I aim to walk at least 2 miles per day and go to a couple exercise classes a week.

Personal Information:
I'm a Chicago native and current Illinois resident, but my heart belongs in Milwaukee, WI. Go Marquette! I don't remember the last time I weighed less than 200 pounds. I feel defined by being fat and I want that to change. I want to get to a healthy weight and to be fit.

Other Information:
I love yarn. It's just so delicious. If I crochet fast, does it count as exercise?

emoticon once upon a little time ago a young woman boldly made her presence known on sparkpeople. She was busy, life and all didn't allow for her to pop back onsite. Well she had something to say about it all and one day- just as unexpected she blogged.

I'm waiting for her to finish typing in the details so I can read what she wrote.

I just read what you wrote on the Vlog you previously made. Love how you picked yourself up. You're really an inspiration in how you are able to quickly move in a positive direction. Isn't meet-up great? I belong to several hiking groups on meet-up. Keep Sparkin!
