Hello! Thanks for stopping by...Like my title states, I am on the road to better health. I am 28 years old, soon to be 29. I struggle with consistency and maintaining the balance that is needed for consistent weight loss, but I am getting better.

I have been dieting since high school, maybe middle school, but for sure by my freshman year, I knew I was overweight and was constantly "dieting". It's a word that you use so people know that you aren't comfortable at your current weight and that you realize that you should weigh less as well.. I always had a magazine in hand and some fact to shoot out. I was sincere but couldn't stop bingeing.

In college, I kept gaining and gaining, and add alcohol to the mix..disaster. But I got a crush, and I was convinced that he would like me if I lost weight, so I ran every morning. I lost weight, but of course he never liked me. I regained a bit, but stayed on a steady diet pills and light food diet.

After college, I worked at a restaurant, had a few more crushes to keep me motivated and reached a size 8. Moved to Miami, lost a few more. The accolades always came in, but I always felt fat, even at my lowest. I always had a new diet to try. I was NEVER satisfied. When I came back to NY in late 2007. I was depressed. DEPRESSED. I was living at home, with no job and no money. I kept being reminded that I had no job and money. I didn't like my neighborhood since I never wanted to live in Brooklyn in the first place. I stopped exercising completely, drank at night, ate pancakes made with butter and watched Maury every morning...

I finally got a job in 2008, and it's been downhill from there. I hated that job. But I stayed, kept eating, complaining, drinking and gaining. I switched departments, still unhappy, plus smoking to deal with stress. I tipped the scales at 240 on Dec 26, 2010 at a Weight Watchers meeting. I am currently at (see ticker).

I had a serious problem with depression, I was living on pure emotion. If I was having a bad day, I wanted ice Cream and cake....If I was having a good day, I am having fruit and jogging. There was no middle ground at that point. I started going to church and a lot has changed, but it is still a process, but it's easier to deal with and I don't have those lows. Consistency has always been an issue with me but every battle won is a step in the right direction and at this point I have more good days than bad ones! Thanks for reading.

My Goals:
I would love to reach my weight loss goal by October 20, 2012.

Right before my birthday.

According to SP, I should be 140 if I consistently follow the plan. It is 35 weeks until my birthday. So if I lost 2 lbs a week, i would lose 70 lbs. If I lost 3 lbs, I would lose 105. So my goal is around 90 lbs.

So I am breaking this up into 4 stages

2/18-4/21--- 3 lbs per week/27 lbs to lose to reach 183 lbs

4/21-6/16--- 3 lbs per week/24 lbs to lose to reach 159 lbs

6/16-8/18--- 2 lbs per week/18 lbs to lose to reach 141 lbs

8/18-10/20---2 lbs per week/18 lbs to lose to reach 123 lbs

My Program:
Daily exercise and calorie counting.

Exercise- Strength Training 4 days per week alternating upper and lower body. Walking at lunch. Jogging in AM and exercise tape at night. Super important to log things in.

Diet-Constant monitoring. 14-1500 calories per day.
