Hey everyone, I'm 21 years old....living in Florida...college student.
I've always had problems with my weight and a few years agow hen I was about 16 I low carbed for a while and dropped a lot of weight...then I turned to some dangerous methods for losing weight laxative addiction and starving...until one day I just decided I was fed up with being sick all the time and being mentally obsessed with dieting....the scale ruled my life and it still does...it's bad...a bad weigh in will send me into an insane binging cycle (trust me....)so I am setting my first weigh in for a month after I start the program. by that time I think the way my clothes feel will provide enough motivation for me to get thru an unpleasant number on the scale
Anyway I'm a second semester junior this year and I decided I DO NOT want to be overweight for my senior year so my goal is to lose at least 40 pounds by my birthday in June and 80 pounds by this time ...New Years Day 2009
For Christmas I asked my parents for Nutrisystem and they have happily given me the $$ to do two months of it as a trial..and if it works then they will support me in my quest lol..I would really love to meet some people who are jus tstarting as well as I know I need the help. Where I live, people are very body concious and it made it very simple to not eat a lot but in college it seems all rules go out the window and social eating is my downfall and I really need the support as all my friends are overweight and my two roommates are guys who can eat ANYTHING therefore stock the house with anything.....
Little profile..I'm pretty fit....all my physical health exams are great....I'm a 6'2 girl, works out 4 times a week, lacto ovo pesco vegetarian for 1 year now...I'm obsessed with salads and grapefruits....
That's kind of the problem too....as the only effective weight loss I've ever experienced is through low carb (chicken breast morning noon and night)...I have no idea how to be a vegetarian while dieting
I will be starting the program hopefully next week ...I'm hoping Nutrisystem will help 'teach' me in a way.....get me back on track...my family is ridden with weight related diseases and I figure I want to lose the weight while I'm still healthy enough for it to make a difference
Hope to hear from u guys soon!
P.S...I guess I like to talk haha
