***I posted this entry in another weight loss commnity but I've been a member of this community for over a year and never posted here (that i remember) so I figured this would be fitting here also... I hope this community is still active and the weight loss challenges seem fun, will there be another one of those??

So it's been over a year since I've posted in this community. I never maintained my momentum when i was trying to lose weight, but a LOT has changed over the last year and I feel that now I'm in a place where I can actually be successful. (or so i hope) So I am here for support and to invite anyone here who is looking for support and wants to maybe try to do this together to come and read my journal as i journey to my goal! (that sounded SO corny, but I really mean it!)

So here I am:

Age: 27
Height: 5'4
Current Weight: 199
Target Weight: 135
STG: 170
LTG: 125 (would by my dream weight)
Why Now? and What is it that is motivating you to lose weight.: I bought a house in October, I am doing well at work and my life seems to be going in a good direction. The things I don't have in life right now is someone to spend it with and a happiness when i look in the mirror. And until I'm happy with me, i can't expect anyone else to be happy with me. So now that I am making more money than I have in the past I decided to spend the money on a treadmill for my home and turned a spare bedroom into my 'exercise room.' I feel motivation now that i've never felt before and just really hope that it sticks. Also there are some people in my life that I just feel the need to prove to them that I CAN do this. (and prove to myself) And there is always the selfish need to just want to impress people and have people tell you how great you look :) and I've never heard that and I want to. (oh and I have an identical twin sister who is 50lbs smaller than me, and that's really hard for me)

so if anyone is interested in doing this together or just being a support system for each other, please comment here or stop by my journal and let me know so i can add you. My journey starts tomorrow! (Which is ironic really, since a big part of why i'm doing this is to find love, and i am starting this whole thing on Valentine's day.....)
