I'm Heidi, a 20 year old junior Anthropology/Sociology double major History/Museum Studies double minor at St. Mary's College of Maryland. I'm busy as heck right now with five classes, really nasty roommates, and 2 clubs, one of which I'm the secretary of.
I've been overweight my entire life, or at least as far back as I can remember. I graduated high school at around 198 lbs. I tried to lose weight for some time, dropping down to 170 in high school on South Beach, but gained it all back. Then, college happened.
In the first semester of my freshman year I put on 40 lbs. That summer, I joined Jenny Craig and lost 30 of it, teetering at 213. When I went back to school, I gained 10 pounds back but have not put on that 30 pounds (thank God!)
What I need is something new. Something that I haven't tried before.
Maybe this is it.

It may not be the prettiest picture ever, but it would have been made with a lot of love! He is the sweetest natured boy... just a bit dim with it, bless him! The breeder we got him from called the brown ones 'dumb blonds'!
How's the diet going today? I have been a bit naughty, and had some crisps (chips?) this evening. Oops!

Thanks for stopping by!
Yes, I'm afraid you're right... I have 2 newfs, Hattie is 7 and an absloute sweetheart, and Bosco who is 4, he 's not the cleverest of animals, poor boy. Infact if he was a person, he'd be the one doing colouring-in, and cutting out (usuing blunt-ended scissirs) while the rest of the class were doing algebra.

Hi there! I saw you on the Christian Living page and just wanted to say hello and welcome to Spark People. Let me know if you have any questions about SP. I've only been using it for about 3 weeks now, but I have a general idea of what's going on! Best of luck reaching your goals!
