I'm sure everyone gets tired of reading these introductions, but I have to appease my ego somehow!
My name is Brianne, I'm 22 years old, 5'6" and I weight 165lbs according to my friendly bathroom scale. I've decided it's time to do something about it. It's either this or I have to go buy a new wardrobe because my pants barely zip. Heh.
I'm not new to the weightloss game however. I did it once before, even got down to about 128lbs, but I did it in such a fashion that my health was compromised. I ended up with Mono and the recovery didn't allow much physical movement so I started to gain the weight back. All my work seemed in vain and I reverted to the habits I had prior to any weight loss. And that's how I got to where I am today.
I'm going to give it another try now. I think I'm mentally ready. I know what my previous mistakes were and I know what worked for me. Most importantly, I'm much less caught up in the idea of being super thin. I want to be healthy and in proportion. I want my pants to fit and be able to walk up the stairs in my apartment building without getting winded. I want to work into a healthy lifestyle that I can keep around for the rest of my life.
I'm glad to have found this place. Everyone seems friendly and helpful and it's great to be able to support eachother!
