I'm just a happy, quirky, half crazed 22 year old.I love painting, digital arts, and sculpting. I also love video games.(Which is another factor in which i acquired the weight.)

Looking to lose weight as it took years to put on I don't expect any of this to be easy. Many factors come into gaining weight or they did for me.So many times I would start up a "diet" and exercise routine and quit within a month or two only losing 5-15 pounds. It takes a tole on you when you see yourself in a mirror and your double what you should be.

So this time I am worth the effort. There needs to be a healthier more fulfilling way to live without having to feel so self conscious. There is a breaking point and I am tired of all the doubt, fear, and insecurities. I say bring it on. If I have a bad choice im not going to let it tear me down. So it's time to put energy into feeling better. Not just that looking better and thus living better.Ideally.

If anyone wants to add me they can. Im not the best on advice but I really try. The only way I keep myself in this is reasoning with myself every day and if anyone needs a hand i will do my best to help or encourage.

My first mini goal(now that I have weighed myself officially now):
-8 to 10 pounds in January:

Exercise music - what are you listening to?
Everything upbeat as of right now. I don't care unless it's a bunch of rap or slow songs. Only that because just can't get into it that much.

I especially like the song sexy chick for some odd reason. Also songs i go for are usually like lady gaga. Oh and I second Katy perry as well she has some nice ones to go to. I think its the constant back beat or something. But im not too cool for any song that makes me move. Oh and may add 80's music from pop to rock.

(I used to be like no im offended you think i listen to Britney spears. *then later pulls out the cd and acts goofy* Razz Whatever makes you happy right? ^^)

Foods for managing cholesterol?
Ekk I didn't realize. It adds up quite fast doesn't it? For the most part I'm learning here too. Thanks for the bread advice. I never realized it was as much as it is. I've always thought it was lower somehow.(i guess a common misconception or just me.) Yogurt yea it is another sweetened thing. Btw the rye sounds good and is a good suggestion. (agree it is pricey but so good)

Im going to print out some lists I have found online with the gi diet foods according to low , medium, and high. I think it will help just to have a reference. Guess it sounds silly but it will help with selections for her.

Before and After, anyone?
I keep looking at these and the results you all have worked for are so moving. When I have my days I feel like crud I look at these and see we all can do it. So proud of you all that have started out as well as those getting towards their goal (and those who maintain).

It's just so nice actually seeing peoples progress because media has you believe you need a magical pill or some celebrity to tell you how to do it. (and i thought it must be something too hard. mostly afraid of failing) Sorry so much chatting just motivated i guess.

We all are on a path that will do us good. There is no failing because you learn something new about yourself every time. We all are learning no doubt. Congrats you guys. ^^

Foods for managing cholesterol?
She exercises quite frequently and she really isn't big. She had a skin cancer taken off her leg that slowed her down but shes gained like 15 to 20 pounds. But since then she has lost like 10 pounds working with weights and walking some with me. So maybe it is the simple carbohydrates. When she stays at my brothers all they fix is white pasta and carbs galore. I know that is the huge factor because at home she has healthier choices.

Granted she does have like sweetened drinks like tea ( she has one pop a month). Lately she has had more breads and potato's. Although it is wheat bread but I agree with you all. So less simple carbs and sugars.
On the meat i think it couldn't be bad she doesn't hardly eat a lot of meat but she does beans and yogurt.

Thank you all for all your advice and experience I will relay them.
