So the first picture is me at about 180-185 lbs, right about when I looked in the mirror and thought, how the heck did I let myself get here?! That was around August 2011! I lost about 25-30 lbs by Christmas time and was feeling so good to go home to my friends and family looking healthier and feeling great.

Since then, I've been hovering around 150-155 lbs and haven't really been able to lose much. However, over the last year working hard and eating well and staying at the same weight, I realized that the scale doesn't matter so much anymore. I continue to grow stronger and I'm surely slimming down. The second picture is me last weekend at 154 lbs. I don't think I've ever looked this good in my life, even when I weighed less. I love looking at my strong arm muscle and my big, defined thighs that I've squatted and lunged so hard for! I love feeling fit and I love fueling my body with healthy & tasty food! I also indulge from time to time and I still drink 2-3 times a week. You don't have to starve yourself to be successful and girls should never be afraid of lifting weights and working their muscles!

Good luck to everyone on their journey to success! :)

    I'm 5'5!

    I have my net set to about 1350 calories and I eat my exercise calories back! Most days I'm eating about 1800 calories.

    I try to get at least 30% protein and limit my carbs to 40% and most days I meet that goal. :)
