Doing something strange on campus
I'm at about 172 here...
Me at 150!
Hi! I'm a college student trying to get fit and slim...I love yoga, women's health issues (I'm a crisis counselor), and all things English-major-related! I want to be a writer for a living, but in the meantime I'm working towards being a librarian or an editor. I'd love to talk books, movies (or weight loss, of course) with any of you. I can also sympathize with LDRs (long-distance relationships), since mine has been that way for almost two years now.
I really want to say that I like my body, and I liked it when I was at my heaviest. I just want to be healthier, and it was with that in mind that I chose my goal weight! It's the healthiest weight for my height, medically speaking. But I don't have much interest in being super-skinny, especially after my battle with bulimia in middle school. I like being "juicy!" And I've done some modeling for art classes at my college, which--trust me on this--does wonders for my self-esteem. If you don't like your body (or if you do!) try it. You might be surprised by how beautiful it looks through the eyes of an artist.
Feel free to friend me or drop me a comment. Best of luck to everyone!
I want to understand the food I eat better, so that I don't just lose weight temporarily. I'm starting to learn that as long as I plan it into my day, it's okay to eat a treat!
I want to reach 150 pounds, which for my height (5'11") is right in the middle of the "healthy BMI" range. I'm also doing body measurements, and I'm aiming for a waist-to-hip ratio of .7!
I am walking more and faster (living on campus makes this easy), working out whenever possible, and tracking my calories.
My favorite books are "A Prayer for Owen Meany", "I Capture the Castle", "Fatal Interview", "A House Like a Lotus", "The Bloody Chamber," "Lolita", "Everything is Illuminated", "Pride and Prejudice", "To Kill a Mockingbird"...I could go on, but I don't think I have space!
I love to watch movies, write, and draw. I have a big crush on Zach Braff...but not as big as on my bf of 4 1/2 years, who looks just like him!

Hey I am actually 6'0 and I also want to get down to 150. I have about 10 lbs to lose so hopefully it won't take too long even though it's been difficult sticking with it. I am a counselor too.

Hello! Congrats on your progess, your ticker is moving along :) I noticed you created a Tall Ladies team this month but there already was one for Tall Ladies - we have almost 500 ladies and so that's quite a bunch of tall women! I welcome you to join us, it's fun to chat with other ladies that have the same 'viewpoint' :) Jen

THanks for the comment! My husband tells me all the time he doesn't see where I have gained (BUT he is just being nice) I am mostly doing it for myself so I can feel like I felt back then and not feel so down on myself! I am getting there slowly but surely!

Thank you for your comment on being productive as you exercise. I agree, but boy, you sure do have a sore back, legs, abs when the day is through, but what a joy to walk around as the sun goes down and see what you have done.
I also enjoyed your web site.
