I'm Lori and I'm attending university for a semester here in Australia (I am originally from Boston). Since I am now far away from home, I can finally do something that I've wanted to do for a while. In addition, I think it would be swell to return back home with a whole new me.
I feel that I am a great person, but my self-image has always prevented me from doing certain activities. Sometimes I'm even embarrassed to wear anything except baggy jeans and a t-shirt, and that it's like a Scarlet Letter. I want to be able to walk with confidence no matter where I am.
I don't really have a set goal, though my tracker is set for 50 pounds (yeah, I'm still trying to get the conversions right). My actual goal is to be able to walk around and not be ashamed to show my stomach in public. This is going to take a while, but you gotta start somewhere.
