Okay this year is the year, how many time have i said that well this year I mean it I need/want to lose at least 50 pounds in 2012. My Name is August Paige Gunter I am 17 years old and need to lose the weight to help motivate me into a healther life. Better to do it early then never. My senior prom is in four months and i want to have more self-esteam to bring out the dance moves on the dance floor. Also with a heathier lifestyle it will clear up my acne.
