Superhero 5k December 2012
Hi! My name is LexieMustang, and I'm here to hopefully find new ways to get the scale moving again. I'm primarily on a South Beach Based diet, but am now trying to count calories as well, and workout 3 - 5 times per week. I am also a (mild) runner occasionally and really enjoy spin class.

To be out of the "Big Girls" side of the store - FOREVER
To get below 200 pounds
To build my confidence and self esteem
To get off of my blood pressure medication
My next IMMEDIATE goal - when I get below 240 I'm going to go buy that Tiffany necklace I've always wanted. - DONE!
I am currently Calorie Counting, while following a South Beach style way of eating. I also exercise pretty consistently.
Big D Half Marathon (April 2014) - DONE!
Originally from Atlanta, GA - now living in Dallas, TX.
I'm single (not by choice), don't have any children, and no pets, unless you count fish.

I am a runner because I run. Not because I run fast. Not because I run far. I am a runner because I say I am. And no one can tell me I'm not. ~ John "The Penguin" Bingham
Someone with a positive outlook on life can bloom wherever they are planted, make lemonade out of lemons, find the silver lining in the darkest cloud.
