Introducing Myself...

This post has been a long time coming.

I just haven't had the time to sit and compose a thoughtful post. I guess that's one of the many reasons I am where I am. Time.

There was a time when I was teeny tinythen I went to college and discovered an unboundless love of junk food that fueled my late night studies. I skipped the gym, spent more time in front of my computer and packed on the pounds.

Once I realized that I was gaining weight I went into denial. Maybe it was the jeans, they were new afterall. Maybe the cut was different. A million different excuses. Nothing seemed to get me into the gym, not even my then boyfriend dumping me because I was "fat".

I continued my weight gain, and now here I am 70 lbs. heavier than the day I started college. It's not something I am proud of. I am not ashamed of it either but I want to do something about. I want to get myself back to a healthy weight.

I know it all starts with diet and exercise and I am hoping this blog is the jumpstart I need to keep myself motivated. I look forward to hearing from everyone and hopefully I can report some great progress!

The journey begins..
