20 Something and over weight...

I technically began my weight loss journey 4 years ago after I saw this photo of myself. I was 23, had gone through a divorce and was about 30 pounds over weight. None of my clothes fit and I felt horrible physically, mentally and emotionally. I decided I needed to change. Eating frozen pizza and chocolate chip cookies for dinner was clearly making me fat. I did some research and decided to follow the Body For Life challenge. In doing so, I learned about how to eat and exercise. I learned to eat 5-6 small balanced meals a day and to properly lift weights. The more weight I lost the more I wanted to learn about living a fit lifestyle. Then I found the Eat Clean Diet! Thanks to my best friend, Amy. Tosca Reno, the author of the Eat Clean Diet, soon became my role model. I have been eating clean for over a year now and have seen amazing results. My journey has now lead me to a place where I not only want to continue to get in the best shape of my life, but to help others do the same. My parents, sister, boyfriend and some of my closest friends, whom you will meet along the way, have joined me in this journey. I hope you will stay tuned and share your thoughts, struggles and stories with me. Check back this evening! I will be posting photos of what I eat at each meal.
