Cool Well Here I am!

Well here I am, and I'm kind of excited because I want to lose weight and I want support, I want to change I know that! I'm from Tennessee and a full time college student, with lot's of extra pounds and I'm ready to lose em. I've gained and lost up and down, and lately I've just gained and not done anything about it so nows the time, and I thought I'd start after my b-day rather then for a New Years solution, because I feel that always goes out the window, so here goes EVERYTHING or the pounds at least, So hey everyone!!!

Hi and

Happy birthday (perhaps a little late)!

College is, in many ways, a great time to lose weight. Sure it has challenges (dining room food, lots of late night study sessions and maybe late night party sessions). But it also has some amazing benefits. I'd bet your campus has a fitness center you can go to for very little if any additional cost - free gym membership benefits cannot be ignored! Some campuses even have a medical center with free nutritionist consultations!

I also found I had more control over my food/choices in college (even if I didn't use them all the right way). I was buying my own groceries, packing snacks, etc.

So embrace some of those benefits, keep posting, and use this place for support, ideas, and sometimes just a kick in the pants.

Can't wait to get to know you better!

Amanda

Thank you so much for the fine howdoyoudo! Yeah and I have a treadmill and a stationary bike at my house!, that just sit there and collect dust but I think tomorrow I'm gonna hope on cause I do love biking, and that treadmill well daddy spent a lot of money on it so I SHOULD use it and I'm GOING TO! I love your story too by the way congrats, it's so inspiring, makes me think I can do it! when people are actually able to, and I see it's not impossible.

Welcome! You've found a great place for support. I find that reading people's stories and looking at before and after pics really motivates me too. Post often and let us know how you're doing.
