My Story

My name is Annie and I'm a 26-year-old-5'0"-tall-born-and-raised-in-Hawaii girl trying to lose the weight. I just graduated from college several years ago and I am now in the "real" world and loving it!

My visit to Moloka'i of Summer 2009

From elementary school through my entire high school life, I was always playing sports... soccer... basketball... volleyball... and was in the best shape of my life. Many people believe it's easier for me to lose the weight now since I "wasn't always fat" but I feel like that's what makes it harder for me. I was in the best shape of my life eating anything but with my 2-hour long practices, 6 days a week... almost anyone can eat anything and still be in great shape.

Anyway, once college hit I stopped being active - completely! Not even walking! - and the freedom of eating anything, anytime, anywhere caught up with me. Working two, sometimes three, part-time jobs and going to school full-time made my life B.U.S.Y! Eating out and grabbing fast-food became a part of my daily routine and before I knew it...

June 2008: Who let me walk out of the house wearing this?!

After almost 10 years of being overweight, I've had enough!

Now I take back control by eating healthy and exercising - no "magic pills" involved! Join me as I take on this new lifestyle!

April 2009: My doggie, Poki, and I just finished hiking.

We're the same age and I am a shortie too :) I'm 5'1.5.. (yes the half inch counts?)

Good luck with your goals and I'm your NEWEST follower. I hope we both reach maintenance this year!
