My Name is Melissa and I'm 27. I was never happy with my weight in high school, always wanting to lose 5-10lbs. Then I went off to college and between school, a full time job and some family tragedies the past few years, I now find myself an additional 68lbs heavier! Once or twice a year I start eating better or exercising, but can only ever keep these changes up for 2wks-a month. This time, I am making a vow to myself to stick with the changes I am making and finally lose the weight for good!

My Goals:
1. I want to lose 74lbs by my next birthday!

2. I've been single for a long time and want to feel sexy and cute so I can start dating again!

2. I used to love taking pictures with friends and family and am a huge scrapbooker...but have lost the passion the past few years because all I see now is a wide mid-section and a double chin, I want to love taking pictures again!

3. I want to tone my legs so I never have to buy another pair of jeans because my chub rub caused holes in my pants!

4. I want to slowly change to a gluten free vegetarian diet.

My Program:
1. Eating right, lots of fruits and veggies. I also trying to eliminate meat & gluten from my diet.

    I see that you are down 8 pounds from the start - a pretty good start for the journey!

    How did your week go? I did not get in as much exercise as planned, only 2 true workouts, and 1 day walking/shopping last week. I promise to get in 4-5 workouts this weekend: Monday - 5:15 am Turbo Fire, Tuesday - 5:45 pm Zumba, Wednesday - 5:30 pm Zumba, Thursday - 5:15 am Turbo Fire, Friday - 5:15 am Turbo Fire. I would like to get in a 5:45 pm Body Pump class on Monday evening, too - but it truly depends on how my Monday at work promises there.

    When are you scheduling your workouts this week? Any new healthy recipes to recommend?

    Thanks for the friend add. emoticon
    I did gymnastics from age 3-21 (still doing roundoff flip-flops at 30 - but haven't tried in the past few years), danced from age 6-21 (ballet, pointe, jazz, modern, character, and tap), and was a H.S. and college cheerleader.

    I love doing Zumba now, as it's dance-based cardio, as well as Turbo Jam and Turbo Fire b/c they're so high-energy!
