Default Brand new!

Hi all,


I introduced myself on the introduce-yourself thread, but I thought i would like to say hello to everyone..

I stumbled upon this website a while back, and today I decided to get serious and get involved. I'm 20 years old, a student, but have struggled with my weight for a long time.

When I was younger I was a competitive figure skater; I skated for about 10 years (Started when i was 5 years old!). When I quit during high school I gained around 30 pounds and became very unhealthy. The past few years has been a struggle for me. I exercised a lot but I always had a very emotional and unstable relationship with food... This summer i've really broken a lot of bad habits, and im ready for change.

I don't want to make this too long, but I would just like to say hi and from what I've seen, it's amazing and it makes me want to push on..

So, thanks!
