Default Ready to get healthy

Hi!

I'm a 22-year-old almost college grad who has been overweight since middle school. In high school, I was very active--I played field hockey and softball and I swam on the swim team, and was still hovering just under the "obese" mark.

When I left home for college, I stopped playing sports, quit working out, made friends who never had to worry about weight (which really affected my eating habits), and, shocker, gained twenty pounds. It's now 4 and a half years later, and I'm ready to get back into shape. I realize that if sixteen-year-old me could run twenty+ miles a week (when I wasn't in the pool for fifteen hours a week), lift three days a week, eat like my perpetually-on-a-diet mother, and *still* weigh 180 pounds, I'm never going to be a thin woman. Still, I miss being able to walk up several flights of stairs without getting winded and being able to beat my guy friends at arm wrestling contests.

I also miss my jaw line. It has recently disappeared, and I want it back.

I'm looking forward to re-becoming the healthiest me I can be, despite numbers on a scale or sewn onto the inside of my jeans. I'm hoping I can find some support here to keep me on track!

I just posted a comment on your blog! You'll understand about my hip bones when you see it (it's under the lipo one). You are the first person I've read who has done the same thing as me.

Lol, hip bones. Do people have those? I don't think mine have *ever* been visible.

Jellybeans!! Thank you for that comment! It actually made me feel better, like there's someone out there that gets what I went through. We'll get there!!
