All my life I've been "a little husky" or "kinda on the chubby side" or however it is that you so wish to describe being overweight... Through high school had to be the worst, knowing you're the 'fat friend' isn't the most comfortable feeling in the world and always falling into the 'just friends' category can be the most horrifying thing, but that's when I decided to make a difference in my own life. My junior year I started using P90X, the summer before I went bazerk trying just P90X and living off of, literally, water and oranges. I lost quite a bit of weight, but I didn't look or feel healthy, I was always tired and the extra weight I still carried didn't settle well on my frame... So my senior year I was struck with a moment of brilliance when my Anatomy&Physiology teacher gave us semester projects and the option to choose our own topics. It was then that I decided to make my own body a project; beginning in January and ending in May, I began a quest that changed my life. I researched everything from proper shoe fit to nutrition and bodybuilding.

Hence, a passion was born.

Admittedly though, I have fallen off the wagon several times (we all do at some point) but that's where I made the choice to get back up and KEEP TRYING. My health matters to me, you're health matters to me... I'm doing my third round of P90X and using different meal replacements along with some separate resistance training routines to get my body into the condition I so desire.

At this point the goal is to be fit, not thin... After all, STRONG is the NEW sexy.
