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!

Hi all,

So I figured it’s time for another before and after, especially when I have pictures to document a 100lbs loss. 

I started at 330lbs at the end of August 2011

Now, October of 2012, I weigh 112 pounds less at 218lbs.

I am 6’3” (or 190.5cm)

I’ve struggled with my weight all my life. My ultimate goal weight is 200lbs with a body fat between 7% and 9%. I’ve been working on muscle development in the last few months, which has slowed my actual weight loss, but is hopefully stimulating fat loss. Loose Skin is my new enemy!

Good luck, all! And enjoy!


Special thanks to Lexi, Lindsay, and Risa, who have been there every step of the way and to every one of my super supportive followers!

Adam never failed to inspire me. As creepy as it sounds, I totally want to print this picture and tape it next to my bed. FOR INSPIRATION, I SWEAR.
