I am making this blog post to keep myself accountable. Starting today I am counting calories via MyFitnessPal, my daily goal is to be at 1,610 calories or slightly less. According to MyFitnessPal this should net me a weight loss of 2lbs per week.

I am doing my best to completely cut out pop and other sugary beverages, I plan on buying some Crystal Light in order to satisfy my beverage fix. But for the most part I would like to focus on drinking more water.

I have been overweight for pretty much my entire life (or at least what I can remember of it), and I am tired of it. I want to look good in my clothes, feel confident in my own body, and not feel embarrassed when other people see me with my shirt off.

I may never have abs, or muscles to speak of, and that’s okay. I simply want to feel, look, and be healthy.
