My name is Tara, I'm 28 and I have always alternated between being fat or just a bit chubby, but have never been really thin or fit. That will change this year. 2010 was a very stressful year. Choices were made that affected my whole life. I am now trying a relationship over and hoping for the best and trying to focus on me, hoping for greater things this year. I learned that there are always people that dont want to see you succeed, these people can even be your closest friends. I had to be strong and eliminate these people from my life and as hard as that was I have never been happier. Surround yourself with people who care and who support you and who are selfless enough to want to see you shine!
Weight Goals:
April 1 = be down 21 lbs (190 lbs) March 24,2010!
August 1 = be down 40 bls (170 lbs) June 13, 2010!!!
December 1 = be down 60 lbs (150 lbs)

I cant wait to fill in these goals with dates they have been completede....at each goal my reward is to buy myself a new piece of clothing (or two) =)

My Program:
Right now my goal is to shed fat and not to build as much muscle until the fat is shed. So I eat a low calorie diet, drink TONS of water and walk, do elliptical, bike or do P90X yoga and keep myself busy to avoid the boredom eating!

Personal Information:
I am 27 and from Dubuque, IA. Currently going to school for dental hygiene and engaged to be married. My unhappiness in my body has taken a toll on my happiness in my relationship and my engagement. I just want to feel happy and sexy again.

Other Information:
I love to read,I love school, I love my pug....shes adorable! I love my friends and family and my only addiction in life has been food...which is my biggest change for 2010.

    Hey sweets! Yay! October 21st!! That sounds like a great date! And....it' coming up fast. I know the feeling of being consumed with wedding stuff. I still have just over 9 months left so I've got enough time and lots of things are planned out already, we just need to execute when the time comes. I'm enjoying every minute of it! It's an amazing feeling to be planning your wedding. What style of dress did you get? I found mine on August 4th. I'm completely in love with it. It's strapless A-line with dropped waist and bubble hemm with a train. It has diagonal ruching on each side and applique. I love love LOVE it! Should get it back in February of next year. Do you have anything left to plan?

    Hey Tara! Thanks for the comment a few months ago....I went on a wedidng planning hiatus and even though I was still sigining onto sparkpeople every so often I wasnt REALLY around.

    So we have set a date....we're getting married June 16, 2012! I'm super stoked. Now I just need to get into wedding day shape. Did you end up setting a date yet?

    How are you doing? Whats new?
