I am an American living in Marrakech, Morocco with my Moroccan hubby. I am an up-and-downer. Highest weight 227, lowest 153. This is literally my 3rd time losing the weight. From 227 to 157. Up to 176 down to 153. Up to 201! Actually thought I had something medically wrong because I gained 30 lbs in 2 months! Turns out I just ate too much! How embarrassing. On my way back down for the last time.

Highest weight (this go around) 201
Current weight:190
Goal weight: 140
Goal date: June 2015

Current mini-goal: 175 by New Year''s

Struggles: binge eating, sweets, carbs. Husband comes from a culture where curvy is the desired look on a woman so he is a bit of a sabotager even though he doesn''t mean to be! Also, here in Morocco we use bread as a fork which is a big no-no for me!!

Excited about:
-feeling good about myself again
-not chafing when I wear a skirt (happens around 165 for me!)
-being comfortable in my clothes
-buying boots that my calves fit in
-having loads of energy
-finding ME again!!!

My Goals:
Started at 201 (highest 227)
Wanting to be 180 by New Year's.
175 by my birthday Jan. 24
160 by March (spring break)
140 by June (go back to states for summer vacation)

HUGE GOAL is to get under 160 because then we're going to start trying to start our family!!! :)

My Program:
Tracking everything and making better decisions. Trying not to do a diet because I've lost all the weight on diets before and gained it all back.

Personal Information:
I'm originally from Southern Indiana, but now live and work in Marrakech, Morocco. I am married to my soul mate who I found at a dinner party in Morocco 8 years ago. We don't have any kids yet, but once I hit 160, we're going to start trying!

Other Information:
I looooove to travel. I'm pretty good at taking pictures and drawing/painting. I love to read and am a huge nerd! I also love cats and baking and talking and blogging.
