    I was so proud of myself today.

    I have lost 35 pounds and today was the first time I actually felt good looking in the mirror. Then the person who I considered my best friend looked at me and said "well you still weigh way too much for someone your height" and there went my happiness :(

    I went from a size 24 to a size 8 in 3 years.

    Lots and lots of exercise and slowly my eating habits began to change. I was definitely an emotional eater. I finally faced what my real issues were which I why I was able to make such a dramatic change. I've just accepted a lot of things about my life, and it is by doing that...

    I'm a little on the heavy side.

    I'm considered overweight and so I am making it my personal goal to lose it. I've done it before so I know it's not impossible. I'm only in high school and I don't wanna be unhealthy. I want to look good and feel good. My goal is to lose about 50 pounds by the time I graduate...

    I want to lose weight.

    I'm 5'4" and I weigh 120 lbs. I've started playing lacrosse but I feel like my snacking is what stops me from reaching my goal weight which is 110. I just think that it will benefit me because I will become lighter and quicker.

    So here is my before

    and "during" pictures. Like I've posted before I'm working very hard to lose weight and tone my body. Eating right & exercising is key! The 2nd picture was taken about 2 weeks ago so I'm excited to take an even more updated one and see how I've progressed since then.

    so badly. But I stress eat. So it is really difficult to stick to a eating plan of healthy eating. My parents have actually started making fun of my weight and so have my friends. I don't know what to do.
