About Me

I am 29. I have been married for almost 8 years and have been overweight for a long time.

I have always struggled with self-image and my weight and now I am finally doing something about it. I am on a journey to lose 89 pounds and to be a healthier, better me.

Here is a picture of me at Thunder over Louisville in 2010:

I avoided looking at pictures of myself for a long time. It was easier to avoid the problem that way.

Other parts of my life include teaching our teenage class at church on Wednesday nights and I work full-time as an Accounts Payable/Accounts Receivable Supervisor. I am attending school to obtain my Bachelor's in Accounting.

I enjoy reading, writing, playing games and watching movies/TV. Obviously this is part of the problem because I do most of these things sitting down. I am starting to enjoy running/walking again. I ran cross country in high school and really enjoyed it at the time and I hope to get back to that point again.

I am using My Fitness Pal to keep track of my fitness activity and my food intake. My goal is to lose the 89 pounds by the end of 2015.
