This doesn't feel so cliche anymore.

Day 1 (6/25/2015) all over again. I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl a year ago and am beginning this adventure all over again with an entirely different perspective - and a whole lot less free time.

Day 1 (6/25/2015) all over again. I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl a year ago and am beginning this adventure all over again with an entirely different perspective - and a whole lot less free time.

Day 320: Following all SP has to offer, I lost 88 pounds in 10 months and feel healthier - mentally and physically - but now it's time for a whole new experience. Just about finished with my first trimester and trying to learn a whole new set of ropes.

Day 180: On day 1 it felt impossible, on day 100 it felt manageable, and at 6 months it (and I) feel worth it.

Day 100: My original page title was "This is beginning to feel cliche". It doesn't anymore. I'm learning solutions and coping mechanisms for the emotional dependency and stress related relationship I had with food and how to live a life of balance. I don't have it all figured out, but I'm growing and shrinking through this process and that's all I can ask for.

Day 1 (1/2/13): I'm a twenty-something looking to improve her body image - like everyone else in my generation. Giving this a go for the third time around and looking to find the light at the end of the tunnel, rather than just stopping short and turning around.

My Goals:
I've wavered within 100 pounds for the past 15 years and have crept back up postpartum.

The goal is to slowly work myself to a healthy 150 lbs while balancing work, family, and me.

My Program:
Starting Points:
* 90 minutes of exercise a week
* Tracking meals (breakfast and lunch always - dinner when I can)
* To breathe through the panic and the worries and the feelings of overwhelm rather than cave in
* To maintain consistent vitamin intake

Other Information:
Former competitive swimmer, all the way through college, now teaching high school English and learning how to balance parenthood and my own well-being.
