    I've wanted to loose weight

    since I was in 5th grade and has always dreamed about having a flat tummy with long, slim legs. Except, everytime I get the opportunity to loose weight I avoid it with every might and never do what I say I will. By the end of the school year I do plan to be near my goal weight.

    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.

    Told myself I would work out today.

    Well I didn't. Instead I ate too much junk and now I sit here laying in bed hating myself. I have no energy at all to go get on the tread mill. Someone help.

    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 :(
