Weigh-ins of Christmas Past:
I lost 15 lbs when I was a freshman in college because I was homesick. It wasn't worth it, though, because I was too depressed to eat and I couldn't enjoy my skinnier body. I ended up getting happy and gaining it all back... probably because I met my boyfriend.
Boys make girls fat.
Then I broke up with him, lost ten pounds, met a new boy, and gained it all back. I'm sticking to my first hypothesis. This boyfriend will be easier to diet with though. He actually eats vegetables.
I broke up with him, too. LOL
Now I've been single for well over a year, and I'm not blaming my weight on anyone but ME.

Since 8/08, I have decided to start eating a more innate diet. Like the stuff our bodies are programmed to eat: low carbs (wheat, corn) --Agricultural revolution really made people fat.
high fat (the good kind!) olive oil, nuts, avocados, etc.
And higher protein. This is challenging for me because I'm not a fan of meat. I've discovered, unfortunately, that meat really makes me full. Vegetables and nuts don't, grilled chicken does. It's sad but I've been trying to eat this way for a week now and my stomach has already flattened out some and my skin has cleared up. So... sweet! And it's not even hard. I dont feel deprived at ALL!

Oh, gosh! I need to eat like that again!!! (9/15/11)

UPDATE: 9/3/08

I'm too broke to afford to eat an innate diet, so I'm just going to try and go low carb instead until I can spend my money better. I hate salad. It wilts before I can eat it all. AND starting today, I'm counting calories again. That worked really well last summer :)

UPDATE: 4/12/10

I'm back to attempting the innate diet! I just finished my first marathon. I've been going all over the scale because I lost a ton of weight when my ex and I broke up, but now I'm dating an amazing new man, and I'm happy and fat again. So It's time to get down to business. I'm gonna be in a wedding in 2 months!!!

UPDATE: 10/14/10

Here I am again!!! Trying to get comfortable in my own skin. Trying to make friends with the scale. SO I have a new desk job. 40 hours a week sitting in a chair=no good. But i am teaching classes at the gym still:

5:15AM Group Power Tue, Th. Spin at 7:00PM on Tuesdays, and Group Power on Sundays at 2:00PM. Also kickboxing 7:00 pm on Monday and Wednesday.
Plus marathon training...

----update 2015---

Stopped starving myself, started doing crossfit. Gained about 15 more lbs. I don't run distance anymore but I can clean and jerk 205lbs. And Snatch 165. I'm happier now... i think. I mean I don't really fit into clothes any more, but I like being strong.
