Hi! I'm new and my goal is to look great in pictures!

I'm here to FINALLY drop the last 15-20 pounds and be firmly in the "healthy" bmi range. I yo-to from 170-175 normally, whuch puts me at 24-25 bmi.

I used to weight 220, but lost the weight through low carb dieting and stopped and started to maintain. I'm happy with how I look in person, but in pictures I still look fat. It bugs me.

I wokr graveyard shifts and becasue of that I've been eating more and more unhealthy. my work buys us candy,chips,sodas,pizza, all in an effort to stay awake and be productive. I don't have an issue with falling asleep, but I eat the food they give me anyway ::facepalm::

So about three days ago, with one month away from our big disney trip, I decided to buckle down and start to eat healthier and exersize.

My goal is to lose about 5-10 pounds in time for the big trip and (hopefully) I'll look great in all our pictures. I'm so sick of not taking family photos becasue I'm going to "look fat" in them.
