I'm a 25 year old computer programmer working for a small startup in San Francisco. I graduated from college in May '08, went on a fantastic trip to Central America for a month, and moved to a lovely apartment, living without roommates for the first time. I have a wonderful boyfriend who lives several hours away (for now) so we only see each other on weekends.

Everything is finally coming together in my life, and I'm becoming happier with it every day, despite my natural cynical streak. The one thing I feel is still in the way is my weight. So its time to take care of that too!

I just found this site and decided to join because I think my friends are tired of hearing me talk about my diet. I'm already 9 lbs down from my original weight of 152 on April 7th, 2009. I've learned a lot so far and I wanted an outlet for all these new thoughts and feelings.

Start weight on 4/7/09: 152

05/07/09: 144.3 (+0.8)
05/14/09: 144.7 (+0.4)
05/21/09: 146 (+1.3, eek!)
05/28/09: 143.1 (-2.9, joined FatSecret)
06/04/09: 141.5 (-1.6)
06/11/09: 141 (-0.5)
06/18/09: 139.8 (-1.2, joined YouTube!)

Update: I recently joined the weight loss community on YouTube and started making videos. My username there is Carmelly22. Please check out my channel if you are part of the community, think you may want to start, or would just like to support me there :)
