Alisha is doin life like the other guys


Im a 26 year old who decided to move 5000 miles away from home by myself to persue something different.   I have 2 degrees and landed a High School Counselling job in a little town of 3500 in the west.   It’s a whole nother world out here and I am living with an old friend of 10 years and have a great network of friends and “family” (they pretty much took me in) Im very active and play hockey and coach it as well.  I live for adventure and am addicted to the gym, I’m trying to have a healthy lifestyle and live the best I can with what I am given. here goes nothin…

As far back as I can remember I have had trouble with my weight.  I never fit into the “cool clothes” of that time period and alwasy envied the people who could walk along the beach without hiding their thighs and stomach.  I am a bigger girl and a few years back I weighed as heavy as 250.

I was miserable.  I started to keep track of what I was eating and signed up for the gym.  I was new at this and never had to do this before since I as an athlete in Highschool and thought that I could handle it when I went to University and had an unlimited supply of food and no activity.

keeping track and going to the gym took me from 250 to 215.  After loosing 35 pounds I was on the right track.  I kept this going for 2 years but then I had a rough patch in my life.  my weight started to fluctuate and i went back up to 240.  I started running.  and eating right.  and weight lifting again.  I am currently on the downslope again at 231.  But I want to feel as good on the outside as I do on the inside.  I want my body to be healthy and strong and I don’t want to deal with the diseases and things associated with obesity.  I want to be under 200 pounds.

so my task is pretty simple.  I have to be accountable for my actions.  I have to own up….man up…whatever

this is me manning up!
