Hey, I'm Francis. A 21 year old girl living the "normal" life. Well, now I want that normal life gone, I want to start living and being someone. I want to help shape people's lives in the future, so I have to shape my own life first. I want a whole lot of things and my life-long weight issue has been holding me back. I want and wish a lot of things, but above all:

I wish to show everyone what's on the inside... on the outside. I'm going to do it this time! ...

Update 01/05/2013
2012 was not a super-duper year for me. I gained back around about 15ish lbs, my lowest recorded weight was a tad below 190. For most of 2012 I had extreme fatigue and moderate depression, to the point where after work I wanted to lock myself in my room and not talk or communicate with anyone-- I just wanted silence. I finally went to the doctor in the middle of December, and I found out I have an under active thyroid.

Not much has happened since, my doctor put me on thyroid medication, and also on an anti-depressant. The goal is to get me off my anti-depressant once my thyroid is where we want it to be, but we'll see how it goes. In the mean time I'm eating within my calorie ranges and doing light exercise until I feel strong enough to do more. I'm hopeful this time around I have all the tools I need to get to a weight where I can feel comfortable in my skin.

Looking forward to a great 2013!

Have done great so far this year. In total since I started documenting my journey I have lost 50 lbs, but have gotten too comfortable in my skin. Time to start losing my other 50 lbs. My goal right now is to make it to around 140 lbs by December. That means losing 36 lbs this year, 5 lbs every month. This is REASONABLE and I can DO IT. Just need to get off my fat butt and make it happen. Zing!!! Looking forward to being at a healthy weight for the first time in my entire life!

Fastest average pace
running a 5k:

Started strength training on 6/25/2013. Mind you I've lost ~50 lbs without a gym membership. You can still do this without the gym if you put your mind to it.

The most important aspects of this journey are to take it slow, know that every pound lost is a victory, and losing weight is not a race!
