off it goes!

get creative   Submit   Hi! I'm Leah. I'm 20 years old, 5'4 and am kind of using this to help keep me on track while I lose weight. It's been a really long process for me (20 pounds in 2 years!) but I'm slowly getting there. I started at around 155 and am currently en route to 125-130 pounds. I'm mostly about working out and such, but don't be surprised to see the occasional random post on here. Be warned: I have the tendency to complain from time to time (ok, maybe its a lot) but I swear I'm not as big of a baby as I make myself out to be.

[x] goal one: 149
[x] goal two: 143
currently: 138
goal three: 135
goal four: 130
final stop: 125

rest easy Brits- these are pounds, not kilos.


let's do this! :)

quick notes

i have a test in micro(biology) tomorrow that im not ready for

ive been on tumblr for 45 minutes trying to convince myself to study. But then i remember that I still have 5 weeks of school and Im hating every second and please just let me drop out.

SHOULD I GO TO CAL POLY POMONA OR SAN LUIS OBISPO???

I kissed Jacob Saturday night. 

I have five weeks until summer, which normally scares the shit out of me but I think Im on track. And these five weeks I can use as motivation because its a finite number that I can say like “dont eat sugar for five weeks” and I wont, because five weeks isnt that long. but also, its definitely long enough to make a difference. 

speaking of sugar, all I want is a cinnamon roll and junk food. 

its midnight, I have to be up in 6 hours and still have to start studying. help.

my mother…
