My name is Risa. I'm 25 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!

I think I want to start selling a diet plan.

People will send me $10.

Upon my receipt of said $10, I will send them the plan via e-mail.

They will open the file with excitement for the mysteries of weight loss and read:

"Eat reasonable portions of healthy food. Create a daily caloric intake that is 500 calories under whatever caloric value you maintain weight at. Keep to that by tracking what you eat. Drink lots of water. Exercise or be physically active at least 30 minutes everyday."

The people will be baffled by this magical revelation!

And they will have me to thank for bringing them this exciting new secret to weight loss they have never thought of before.
