Okay.... that's it. Enough is enough! I am ready to lose!
I'm a 20 year old college student. I'm 5'8" and the last time I weighed myself, I was 183 lbs. I've been overweight since I was about 12 or 13. I was not a very happy person in middle and high school. On my 18th birthday, the summer before my senior year in high school, I learned that I was 230 lbs. I knew then that I had to do something... and for a while, things went well.
It's now two years later and I am almost 50 lbs. smaller. I did very well during my senior year, but I only lost less than 10 pounds during my whole first year of college. I've just begun my sophomore year, and I'm sick of this plateau. I need to begin challenging myself again and get real.
My short term goal is 164 lbs. (just enough to put me in the category of "normal," as opposed to "overweight" -- at least I'm no longer "obese"!) After that, I just plan on losing until I'm satisfied with my appearance, althought I think a good range for me would be between 145-155 lbs.
I'm not sure why I'm even posting, but I need to get this out there... just by typing this, I'm making myself accountable for me. I can do this!! Wish me luck... :-P
