Looking to be a success story.

Check out my tumblr for more frequent updates: http://a-year-from-now-today.tumblr.com/

I'm 24, and refuse to enter 25 at morbidly obese.

I am tired of sitting on the sidelines and waiting for things to happen, it is time to make them happen.

My goal is a big one, but I want more than anything to ring in being a quarter of a century old at under 200lbs, something I have not seen since high school. I've got a plan, I'm willing to work hard, and I am ready ...

My Goals:
Goal for November/December 2013: weekly
4x cardio
4x strength

January 2014:
-sign up for a 5k
-find a gym - DONE (did in Dec)
-eat less chocolate

My Program:
I am trying to eat healthier, even though I am very bad about counting calories. I have just added fruits and veggies (which were non-existent from my diet earlier), and started drinking water instead of sugar-filled drinks.

I am also going to the gym, plan to 5 times a week, and am doing strength training alongside cardio. I have also started doing group exercise classes at my university's gym.

Personal Information:
I have struggled with weight my entire life. In high school I never thought it was a big deal. I was always sort of a larger gal, but I was active (and never once made fun of or made to feel bad about my weight, except from my parents). Senior year, my step-dad passed away, and being the emotional eater that I am, I have since gained an extra 50+ lbs. I am just trying to rebuild my life, and take control back. That was a rough time for me, and I am doing a lot better emotionally, now it's time to translate that to physically.

Other Information:
I am tired of making excuses and am ready for a change.
