My name is Risa. I'm 24 years old and live in Boca Raton, Florida. I have battled with my weight since I was about 6 years old, and for the last couple years, I was finally winning the fight. But I slipped, gaining back more than I'd prefer from my lowest weight in ages. Now I'm buckling down again to shed the weight so I can look on the outside the way I feel on the inside. But the road isn't always straight and smooth. For more information on my life-long weight loss journey, please view my first post here. This blog exists for me, to keep me on track and motivated. If you don't like personal posts or personal opinions, you took the wrong fork at Albuquerque!

**Please note that I am not a nutritionist, personal trainer, doctor, or in any way professionally trained in matters of health. Any advice I provide is based on my own thorough research and experiences. Please consult your physician or other health advisor for your personal needs.**
