After a long vacation from the site and from dieting, I'm back. Let's just say I'm back to where I started, but I'm a little happier me right now which I think it will help in the journey I'm about to start... on the road to a healthier (and skinnier) me.
My name's Amanda (but I prefer 'Manda). I'm an 18 year old college freshman at Bucknell University in PA, majoring in Biochemistry. I take a long break from dieting because I wanted to spend a lot of time with family and doing the things I love to do over the summer before I left.. and I kind of forgot all about the diet. I'm almost done with my first semester at college, and I think I've finally settled into the life that I can start dieting again (but their are so many more temptations here! and it's so hard to get to the gym due to my schedule), but I finally have friends that accept me as who I am... so I finally feel ready to really do this.
I'd like to lose about 150 pounds. Whew! That's a lot. Last time I checked I was about 275, and I'd like to get down to about 125. This time I'm going to try not to let myself get discouraged.
Anyway, I hope that I'll be welcomed back with open arms.
