Now I'm Past the Halfway Point!

I have been working on my weight for years. Up and down, and now I have more than enough inspiration to do it - I started at 360 lbs., I was single (not anymore!) and I feel like the rest of my life is about to start ... But for real this time.

Now that I've started, it's up to me to keep this up!!! :) I've got the momentum, I've broken through two plateaus, and I'm ready to keep on going! Especially considering I'm finally past the halfway point with losing the weight! I will ...

Now that I've started, it's up to me to keep this up!!! :) I've got the momentum, I've broken through two plateaus, and I'm ready to keep on going! Especially considering I'm finally past the halfway point with losing the weight! I will NEVER see those 100+ lbs. again!

I'd be lying if I said this has been easy or it's been flawless. It hasn't. In December and January I really struggled with getting beyond 101 lbs. and I'm not quite sure why. But I'm pushing forward because my life is too worth it!

I've actually been super active my entire life, doing color guard for eight years (indoor and outdoor), volleyball for three, softball for four, horseback riding for 10 ... it's not like I haven't been active!

But I do love carbs. And I'm an emotional eater. It sucks. :/

I'm just looking for constant inspiration! If you are too, or are looking for a buddy, please let me know! I'm more than willing to talk to all kinds of folks - so please feel free to friend me! :)

I'm really looking to lose weight for three main reasons: my health (heart issues, cancers, and more run rampant in my family), my looks (I've always been the "you have such a pretty face" girl), and my romantic life!

My Goals:
I am looking to lose weight in order to be healthier, mainly, but the superficial benefits can't be counted out either. :)

My Program:
My overall objective is to become more active and eat healthier - I'm eating on the Weight Watchers 360 program, and I spice up my exercise regimen fairly often. I enjoy BodyPump (when I can get there), BodyCombat (most Monday evenings), as well as hitting some circuit training with the stair climber, treadmill, elliptical, and some squats, abs, lunges, etc. thrown in!!! I also play football at the Fieldhouse with my awesome Lady Rhinos football team every Sunday evening, which is a much better workout than you'd think! (I play offense AND defense, so I'm on the field for 70 percent of games!)

Personal Information:
I'm a military brat turned Virginia girl ... I've been here about 19 of my 27 years (on and off, of course ... As is the life of a Marine's daughter), so I consider myself a pretty dedicated Northern Virginia girl.

I'm currently an English teacher in my home county. :) A new adventure every day, that is for sure! I love my job and the challenges it presents to me all the time - my kids (students) are my LIFE.

I'm a music, color guard, movie and overall art nerd. I appreciate the artistic things in life because I feel they're the most authentic.

Other Information:
"You have to challenge yourself in order to change yourself."
