Hey y'all! My name is Melissa and I am a 23 year old recent graduate of Western Kentucky University (Go Hilltoppers!) with a degree in Flute Performance. I was born and raised in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia but I recently moved to Louisville, Kentucky to work and eventually attend UofL to become a music therapist. I love life and all that it has to offer!

I've been overweight since I was six years old and I am SICK OF IT! I''m tired of repeatedly trying to get this weight off ...

I've been overweight since I was six years old and I am SICK OF IT! I''m tired of repeatedly trying to get this weight off and failing so I made it simple: this time I won't fail. I got back on the wagon Monday 6/23/14. I'm excited (and a little nervous) to see where this journey is going to take me.

I am hoping for exactly what you said -- that seeing the fruits on my background will make me want to eat them instead of pizza! lol

I highly recommend trying HIIT! I dunno if you have an Android or if you have an iPhone, or if this app is available for iPhone, but for my Android I have an app called HIIT Interval Training Timer that makes it a piece of cake to do HIIT training. You can completely customize every aspect of the workout just by typing in the times you want, then you just listen for the voice cues/vibrations, and that's it. So if you wanna try it, I recommend that app. Although I'm sure there are others that do the same thing.

I am trying to be careful and not do too much. So far the only pain I've had is soreness in my legs and butt letting me know I'm doing something, which is a good thing, I think!

Hope you're having a great day!
