Alright. So, I guess this could be considered kind of an introduction post. I'm new to the community. My name is Corinne. I'm seventeen, and I've kind of been struggling with my weight for a long time. Most of my life actually. I was always a little chunky, and even now I don't look as much as I weight, but I still weigh that much.  So...I guess stats and stuff?

Weight: 190
Height: 5'8
Waist: 34
Thighs: 25
Calves: 17
Upper Arms: 13
( all in inches, feet, and pounds)

I play volleyball and softball, so I have a lot of muscle, which could be why my weight is so high, but I also have a ton of fat on top of the muscle.

So, yeah. My long term goal weigth is 150. I'm not sure by when yet, I'm working toward there in small increments. But, my first goal is 180 by July 7. 10 pounds in a month and a week is doable, right? I've never really had a problem with excercising, I do it daily with sports. It's the food that gets to me. My step-dad can eat whatever he wants, and doesn't gain a pound, and my mom just doesn't care what she weighs. My little brother is getting chunky, but he really doesn't care. So, all through my house is just junk food. Everywhere. And, my mom has this whole thing where she doesn't want to be the only fat one in the house, so when I say I'm going on a diet, she'll go and buy my favorite ice cream, favorite cookies, ect. Kind of frustrating. But I'm going to do it this time.

So, my plan is anywhere between 1500 to 1800 calories a day, maybe a little less in a week or two once I get used to that. Tuesdays and Thursdays I have volleyball. In addition to that, Monday through Friday I want to start walking/jogging, just to get back into shape, for 20-30 minutes. And, some daily pushups and crunches in their just to work on strength.

So...that's it. I'm always open to friends, just comment and tell me you friended me. I love new people. I'm always here for support.

I'm the same... I don't look as much as I weigh. I tend to use that as an excuse, "Well, I don't look like I weigh almost 200 pounds, so it doesn't matter, right?" It's terrible the way I sabbotage myself!

Yeah, I totally get that. I'm always like, "well...I fit into my clothes still, so I don't have to worry" and stuff like that. But, now I'm just like, no. no excuses. Who cares if you fit into your clothes now don't you want to fit into a smaller size.
