following: TallGirl25's own diet
performance: gaining 0.3 lb a week

My goal is to lose 100 lbs, weigh what I did when I was 25 years old and get back into the clothes that have been at the back of the closet for the past 12 years. Accountability has been key for me to be successful with past goals, which is why I find myself here.

I feel blessed to have met and married the love of my life, had two beautiful children, maintained a fulltime job in an industry I love, and as of March 22nd, will finish my masters degree. But during this time, I have sorely ignored my health.

Maintaining a healthy weight has never been easy for me, I always had to work to keep it off - by playing Basketball in High School, working hard each summer during college, and when I found myself significantly overweight in the late nineties I even trained for and completed my first marathon. Soon after that, the craziness and stress of balancing fulltime work, a young family, and school resulted in a pattern of poor eating habits and very little physical activity.

I desperately want to get back to being that person who had discipline, self-respect, and commitment to health. I want to dance in the kitchen with my kids without getting out-of-breath half-way through an ABBA song. I want to wear a swimsuit in public and have my husband take a second look. I want to walk into any store to buy clothes off the rack. I want to stop avoiding the camera. I want food to stop having power over me. I want to remember what it felt like to go for a 5 mile run and feel good at the end. I want to treat my body with respect.

It starts here. Thank you for being part of my journey.
