Here is the start to my new ACTIVE life. I am actually happy and scared all at the same time. Running a 6k is something I never thought I could do and April 18th I am going to do it. There are many different goals I have that I want to be able to fulfill. Attending school full time, working full time, and doing this is worth every minute. I go to San Diego State University and I am a Biochemistry major. I am graduating in spring.
I am really tired of being overweight. I have been overweight my entire life and every time I try to lose weight I manage to gain weight instead. I am tired of the headaches, backpain, sleepiness, and being sick all the time that comes with poor eating habits and lack of exercise. I know my diet plan is going to have to change too. I am not going to deprive myself from food (because as people who know me know I love food) but it is time I make healthier choices. I am only 22 years old and I want to lose a good 20 pounds before my birthday on June 1st. My ultimate goal is to lose 50 pounds and hopefully I can accomplish this by January 2011. Trying to go to the gym is going to be tough with my horrible schedule but I am going to make sacrifices to do so. I wish us all the best of luck in this journey.
Any advice or help would be greatly apperiated. I am planning on tracking my weight each week to see if I manage to gain or lose weight.
