New Decade, New Degree, New Denim

Over the past 7 years (since graduating from undergrad) I have slowly and steadily just been gaining weight. Somewhere between 20 and 30 pounds. More from my particularly thin periods. I look at pictures of myself in college and think, what did I do to myself and when did I stop caring? In college, I was more active and made a point to eat much healthier. Since then, my workouts have been sporadic at best and I pretty much eat whatever I want, usually in gigantic portions. Actually, all ...
Over the past 7 years (since graduating from undergrad) I have slowly and steadily just been gaining weight. Somewhere between 20 and 30 pounds. More from my particularly thin periods. I look at pictures of myself in college and think, what did I do to myself and when did I stop caring? In college, I was more active and made a point to eat much healthier. Since then, my workouts have been sporadic at best and I pretty much eat whatever I want, usually in gigantic portions. Actually, all things considered, it's a miracle I've ONLY gained 20-30 pounds.

Now starts a new semester of graduate school, a new year, and almost a new decade. (I will be 30 in September). Seems like a perfect time to get it together and lose the extra pounds. And hopefully have to buy some new blue jeans :)

My Goals:
I want to publish my novel (after making the middle 100 pages stop sucking) and then work in education reform somehow. Sometimes I think I want to run for senator one day.

Oh, weight loss goals? I just want to look and feel a lot better. I feel so unsexy.

My Program:
I'm trying to cut down on unnecessary carbs - keeping carbs to fruits and veggies, whole grains, etc. In that same vein, I'm eating a lot of protein - chicken sausage, turkey, pork.

I make a ton of veggies with whatever I cook because I like to eat large quantities and that helps me to not feel like I'm going to run out of food. What a fatty - I'm afraid to run out of food.

Personal Information:
I love singing, writing, music, cooking, baking (trying to keep away from that one) and making sarcastic comments.

I'm deeply interested in education reform.

Other Information:
I really don't like carrots. Seriously. They are gross.

Hi! I stumbled on your page. Welcome to Sparkpeople! What are you studying in grad school? Have a great week, and stay warm! I'm in NY so we are quite cold, too. emoticon
