My name is Ashley. I'm a college student in Arkansas, and will be turning 20 in May. At the age of 17, I was 250 lbs. Now I'm 177 and trying to reach my goal of 135 lbs. Of course, that goal is secondary to my goal of being healthy, happy, and fit. If I can reach those, I feel I'm doing alright.

A little excess information about me: I'm a telecommunications technician during the summer. Working on construction sites means that I need to be physically able to do the demanding work required of me (lifting cable spools/boxes, carrying 8 ft. ladders up and down stairs many times a day). Last year my boss commented that he noticed I'm not as physically capable as the other employees, and while it hurt, it was just a fact. I want to make my job easier by getting in shape.

I'm a Mass Media major with a minor in Women and Gender studies. Film, photography, and writing are my passions. Next semester I'll be replacing the graduating copy-editor on our campus newspaper.

One of my goals is to also look like a whole new me in my college graduation photo.

I'm here because I've been dieting and exercising all on my own, and I felt I needed that extra boost of support. I want to be here for everyone trying to lose weight, and I trust that you all will do the same. Thank you for following me on my journey, and I hope I can get a couple of buddies. Very Happy

sticking to a plan
I think and am living this. You need to a WOR plan that fits your life and exercise that also fits your life. If it doesn't fit your life you won't stick with it.
