Wanting to be thin

I am a graduate student who is simply trying to return to the weight that I used to be. I am tired of being heavy and I'm tired of how it makes me feel.

I liken my journey to that of a hatchling sea turtle. The baby turtle has a long journey to get to the sea--there are many things that can prevent them from getting to its goal. And once it reaches the water, it must fight the huge waves to get to the open water. Then it must be cautious, but isn't in dire danger.

My hurdles?
I don't eat enough, which makes weight loss difficult. I am usually very tired when I get home and don't want to exercise. I have to be at class/work early. But my biggest hurdle is my negative thinking. I am very negative about my body and it makes me feel bad. I want to be able to be comfortable with who I am.

Sounds great! I actually weight in tomorrow, so I will send you my updates after that! I am hoping to at least lose 1 pound, that will get me to 159; I have been stuck at 160 for a few weeks now!
