I'm a sister, aunt, news producer and shop-a-holic. I'm always on the go and don't always eat right.
I lost a ton of weight and kept it off for years and years after college, but slowly it crept back up and I'm taking charge before it all returns. I think I hit 30 and I heard my metabolism come to a halt. I'm 32 now and I try to work out 4 times a week and do cardio and pilates. I'm watching what I eat. It's a slow process, but I've held steady at 157 for several weeks and now I'm making the move to get down a few more pounds then maintain. My ultimate goal weight is 141, but I"d be happy at 147 because I think I could maintain it.
Fun Fact: I have a cat named Mr. Brian Williams

New again & need encouragement/buddies!
I'm not sure how to do the buddies thing, i just joined today! First off, way to go, taking control of your life. are you just changing how you eat or also working out? I find that when i work out, i'm so much more likely to stick to it because I don't want to undo all that hard work!
a little about me.
i have been using the app on my phone for a couple months. i lost 6 pounds and kept it off.
i'm down another 2, but you know you can't really count it til you weigh in 3 times in a row and it's the same number!
i lost a ton of weight in college and slowly over the past 11 years it's crept back up. I was nearing 160 and had to take goal is 147 so i can fit in all the suits in my closet!
I'll encourage you if you encourage me! i need someone to hold me accountable so i don't go face first into a cake (yah, that might have happened last weekend)
