I'm a new arrival on the 3FC forums (found it yesterday). Just looking for some advice from the veterans here.
My weight has always fluctuated, though I've been on the rather heavy side for ages. I've gone through the battles of hating every part of my apperance for years. Something about college helped. Maybe it was the one person I had who made me feel beautiful and petite, but I got the extra boost I needed (unfortunately he's not a part of my life right now, so that made the last semester rather difficult).
I carry my weight decently and hope when I lose the weight I need to I can be even more proud of my appearance. It's been a long battle and the few victories have given me extra heart.
I'm in college and live on campus. While visiting home for winter break my mother decided she wanted to go back on MediFast and got me in on it as well. I had done it with her last summer, but because of my schedule just couldn't keep with it. I agreed thinking it wouldn't be too bad, but was faced with the realization my mum was paying for MediFast and I was going to waste my meal plan on campus. I don't have the money currently to keep up with MediFast and to be honest, I'd rather keep with a calorie counting diet. Mostly because calorie counting is less of a diet and more of a way of life. It forces you to pay more attention to what you're eating and in my opinion, you enjoy what you're eating more.
Now I am planning on finishing the rest of my MediFast, but I'm going to transition into regular calorie counting.
It's my last year here, I'm living by myself (staff position on campus!), and senior project is daunting, but will be manageable. I just want to feel (and look) fantastic for graduation.
I was just looking for anyone who had any advice on things to keep me on track or words of wisdom to pass on! Thanks ladies (and gents).
