If you're reading this, then you already know...

I've decided to take my weight loss journey, online, for public scrutiny.

You might be one of the skeptics, you might be someone who is stalking me, or hopefully, you are one of my friends, trying to be a supportive force to me. Send me a comment or don't. Either way, I'm doing this for me. I'm feeling like if I post my progress online, I can't cheat and I'll have it documented. (like i really care what YOU think?)

Last year at this time, I was about 165-170 lbs (after losing 25 lbs) and my size 10's were fitting fiiiiine. Now I'm 191 pounds of pure woman. So I'm back in full force, trying to regain control of my body and my appetite. I've got an amazing boyfriend to be hot for, and although it seems a little bit stupid, I actually WANT to look good for him, even though I know he already loves me as is.

After racking my brain for possible explanations for this weight gain (not EXCUSES) I've realized this: If I am not constantly vigilant of my portion sizes or excersizing on a regular basis I WILL BE FAT. I don't want to be FAT. I want to look good naked!

So here are my measurements...

Arms (upper)- 12"

Legs (big, meaty thigh)- 24"

Waist (didn't know I had one)- 38"

Hips (shakira, shakira MY HIPS DON'T LIE!)- 42"

Neck- 13" (something i read somewhere said to measure it)

...and once again, I weigh 191 pounds.

As I embark on this journey, I will update weekly with my weight and measurents. Expect these on Sunday/Monday. I might even share some challenges, funny anecdotes. But whether I like it or not, if I know people are reading, I'm going to have to update it honestly.

My ultimate goal is to lose 10% of my current weight, at least19 pounds and be a happy, healthy

170 lbs.

here goes nothing....

You're already very pretty, but good luck! Losing weight sucks.

But then again, I weighed 240-some pounds freshman year, and now I'm 198, so I'm pretty content.
