190 Pounds

Dropped 10 pounds since the last update!  I've been working out around 4/5 times a week, my diet is 90% raw with one or two meals a week that have some steamed veggies or cooked something.  I'm down 28 pounds since going raw, I'm a little over 2 months into eating a raw food diet, and while it was really hard to do, it's been so worth it.  The results are so fast!  I'm thinking at this rate I'll be able to hit my goal weight in the next 2 or 3 months.  I'm so excited <3 :)

Personal Trainers

I never really understood the benefit of personal trainers until I finally went to one... I used to think... oh it's just someone who you're paying to make you workout... I realized that no that's not how it is at all. You're paying someone to share with you their expertise in how the human body works, how YOUR body works, how to properly make use of all of your muscles, and how to do it safely so you don't injure yourself. You get to have an outsiders view on what you're doing wrong with your workouts, and how to fix it. And oh god, my everything hurts. Workouts, where you use proper form are ~no joke~.
 If you're looking for a good personal trainer, there is an ad on the right there for Drew Mossman, he's an excellent trainer, I've been to him a few times now and I've never once left a workout disappointed.  He is based in Ohio, so keep that in mind.
