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.
