    I have to lose 23 pounds to get to my goal weight. I've weighed-in at 169lbs. and I am shooting for 146lbs. My next weigh-in will be on July 10! I plan to do this through working out on my Bowflex, jogging, and eating less refined flour and consuming more protein.

    I Just Want to Be Healthy...

    I have gotten my weight down to 280 from 350+ in the past couple of years.  Now I'm stuck around 280.  I'm a college student, which makes healthy diet and regular exercise difficult.  I'm also in a very demanding Musical Theatre performance program which makes...

    I've been eating clean

    and exercising regularly for two months now and I'm still far from my goal weight. However, minimal changes in my body are happening. It bums me that this process is so difficult and really slow but I won't let that stop me from reaching my goal weight. I can do this! Yeah!!!!
