I feel like this pic really showed the weight loss around my waist.





My parents said they wouldn't complain if I pierced my nose if I lost 20 pounds. Here is my new nose





Photo taken on my 21st birthday! (I had to crop out the cake lol)



I have 14 pics in my gallery

New year, new beginnings...

My name is Tori. I am a college freshman. I just turned 19 on August 6th. I have been struggling with weight issues for the past 5 years but this year it really hit me. I am having all sorts of new opportunities. Why not make one more change. Why not decide to be the healthiest, fittest, happiest person I can be? On August 6th 2011 I will turn 20. This will mark a new era in my life, an entire new decade. A decade that I absolutely REFUSE to bring in over weight. On my next birthday I want to ...

Hi Tori,
I'm very sorry to hear about your Dad. Hopefully it's something that can be corrected over time? I'm also sorry to hear that you have to take time away from school, but by the same token, the best thing you can do is take care of your Dad.
Don't give up on going back to school next year (or whenever) and just keep "slugging away" at the weight. It's so easy to gain weight if you're a stress eater like I am.

Hi Tori,
I'm so glad you're still on SP. It means we're trying, whether successful or unsuccessful. I gained a little weight back, but I'm not giving up. Hope your schooling continues to go well.

Hi Tori,
I haven't been a good SparkPerson as I haven't been on much either. I just read all the quotes that you indicated inspire you. I loved them all!!!
I hope your school year is super!
I'm not sure how I've managed to keep the same weight for MONTHS! But I'm not going to complain, because I've done a lot of stress-eating and that's why I'm so surprised. If I could get my life a little better under control, then I might actually be able to lose weight. SIGH!
Study hard - be great!
