My name is Anna and I have always been overweight. I have finally decided it is the right time to shed the pounds and feel better about myself! I want to be able to run a half or full marathon by my birthday next year, 2012.

I would also love to be in shape to keep up with my Army man. Possibly run a quicker mile than him, this is my ultimate goal!!!

I have lost about 40 pounds before but now I have 45 more to lose! Got to get back to eating right and exercising! We can all accomplish our mission, let's stick together!

UPDATE: Only have 38 more pounds to go!!! WOOHOO

    Thanks for the comment! You can't be too hard on yourself. Look at all the progress you made from your before picture! Incredible! Congrats on your measurements! My ears are still filled with fluid they feel worse today than yesterday. But oh well. I haven't been working out. But once I can breathe through my nose again I am going to start up. 6 lbs gone... feels great. Can't wait until 38 lbs are gone!

    Thanks the comments on my blogs. I love dancing and it just happens to burn calories like no tomorrow! Yes you need to blog! I enjoy reading peoples blogs. It's crazy how many people are going through the same things as you or have all these amazing ideas you never even thought of.

    Can't wait to see your goals for Feb. And it would be amazing if you could keep me accountable. You've been a great help so far and I like talking with you :-)

    Why can't you go dancing???

    Everything is going okay... Just wrote a super long blog today if you wanna take a read. But all in all things are coming together. I see you lost a couple pounds... GO YOU!! Keep pushing forward.

    Yup, I have psoriasis. Mainly, on my elbows those never really go away except in the summer time if I go to the beach a lot. But I am lucky in the fact I have a certain type that come and go without medication. But when I get sick or it's cold out my body goes nuts and I flare up like crazy. Winter is terrible for me. I get is on my scalp and random places until the spring/summer time then it dies down a bit. Eczema is kind of similar but the causes are different right? One time someone thought I had the chicken pox... People are so ignorant when it comes to things like that. Children tend to be more curious... adults are just plain rude.

    Hope everything is going well with you! Keep pushing!
