Welcome, friends, to a great journey.

I tried writing a lengthy intro to this blog, full of inspiration and tears and hope, but it isn't necessary. I'll cut right to the chase and save us all some time.

I'm Ashleigh. I'm 20 years old. I am a size 18 and weigh in somewhere around 200 pounds. Though I am confident and love myself just as I am, I'm getting married in a year and a half and feel that I could do to drop some weight before my big day. 

When I was in high school, I weighed 130 and I genuinely thought I was beautiful. This is not to say I don't think I'm still beautiful, I just think I would look a lot better if I didn't grow a second chin every time I look down. 

I've tried, somewhat unsuccessfully to lose weight over the past few months. I had a billion excuses, and it really came down to lack of inspiration. So now, here I am, determined to go from a size 18 to a size 8 between now and October of next year. I think it's doable. I have a rough workout plan and enough free time to really apply myself to this. I'm hoping that if I get into good workout habits during the summer, I will stick with them in the fall when I go back to school. 

So, anyway, this blog is my way of keeping tabs on myself. I'll weigh in once a week, post little inspirations, that sort of thing. It should be fun and keep me on track.

Welcome, friends, to my great journey.
