I am 25 years old and weigh in at 227.  All my life I have struggled with my weight.  For the most part I was able to keep it mostly under control, but these last few years it's creeping up on me. 
Every new year I come up with a new plan to loose weight and it works for a while but then as with most new years resolutions they fade into the background and are eventually forgotten.  This year I hope to be different.  What makes this year different? Years past my plan would be to get skinny.  I failed.  Skinny is somewhat unrealistic for me.  I am 5ft8inches tall and big boned.  Don't roll your eyes, I know 'big boned" is just another way to describe being over weight, but in my case it's true.  Being "skinny" is just not possible for me.  No super model here.  My plan this year is to be healthy.  My cholesterol is a bit high and my body is starting to feel the preasure of the weight.  My joints hurt, my back aches, and I am tired all the time.  
I have come up with an exercise routine and somewhat of a diet plan.  I don't like the word diet.  In my mind they are get skinny quick schemes.  I plan to cut down on the junk food and sweets.  I love sweets, maybe not cut out completely, but cut way down.  I have my husband on board with me, which is a big help in it's self, and I have created, with the help of various health magazines, a daily exercise routine.
Well for now, wish me luck.
