I stumbled across this forum earlier today and was instantly sucked in. Anyone who has ever attempted to lose weight can tell you have support has a lot to do with it, and that's what I'm hoping to find here.
Now, onto the juicy stuffs and such. I'm Sara, and will be 19 in a few months. I am a full-time college student and have battled weight issues since I was 11 or 12. I come from a family of very large people, both men and women, and sometimes I'm amazed at some of the absolutely CRAP I have put into my mouth.
I've been doing little things for the past two weeks or so and have already lost 7 pounds. I park farther away from my classes and give myself a little less time to get there, I drink my 8 glasses of water a day, I've cut out soda completely (now THAT darn near killed me!), and I've been more aware of what I'm putting into my mouth.
But now that I've tested the waters, I'm finally ready to dive right in with the rest of you guys!
