Weighed 230 lbs in November 2011. Now weigh 140. Lost 70 lbs from November 2011 to November 2012. Hit goal of 90 lbs lost on April 16, 2013.

I'm a 28-year-old professional meeting planner and live just outside of Chicago. I'm also a grad student, getting a master's in sports administration.

I fancy myself a "real" runner and religiously devour Runner's World and Women's Running (and usually Women's Health and Fitness) magazines monthly! I blog at http://www.fatgirlrunn.com

But my real religion is hockey and I am a big Washington Capitals fan!
