Shared Food Tracker
I am your typical 22 year old girl, just trying to live her life and find her way. I live by my own rules, wits and desires -- which may be why I screw up along the way. I have a hard time taking criticism, and I don't pretend not to. I enjoy complexity, things that require thinking and knowledge. I consider myself a perpetual student, which may contribute to why I feel much younger than I am sometimes. My biggest fear is failure and disappointing myself. For a person who is fairly type-A, I certainly have an issue *doing* things sometimes.
Why Am I Here?:
Well, the story starts out like many others. Typical girl who was active, did a lot of sports, was always up and about all of the sudden just stopped. College happened, in other words -- and do did the lack of time (so it seemed) to make meals, or even sit down longer than 5 minutes before having to be off at the next class, or off doing the next thing. Then, moving in my with boyfriend made the above problem much worse, since you tend to develop the other person's habits. Unfortunately for me, I'm not a skinny, high-metabolismed man, so needless to say I gained a bunch of weight. I am certainly not proud. I am here to lose that weight and feel confident again.
What SPARKED me?
What sparked me to come here was truly being sick and tired of living like this. I barely recognize myself, and all I want to do is feel like me again. It's not just to look better, or to wear some sexy clothes again...it's because I hate who I have become, and I do not accept it any longer.
What makes this time different?:
I admit, I tried this once before. Sadly, I lied to myself the whole time. Sure, I ate healthy -- except for the times I guzzled booze, high-cal sandwiches, pizza, etc. Booze was my biggest trip up. I did something I never did before, which was throw away all that stuff, and I stopped drinking. It's been about a month since I gave up all of that, and I did it. Now, it's time to exercise and track cals, and I have a feeling it'll be all good from here.
I am here for anyone, if you ever need to talk. I know what it's like to feel like you are stuck and to feel like you have no one and nothing to turn to. And if you ever find yourself debating whether or not to work out, or whether or not to have that 6th beer, just think about what you're doing to yourself by giving in to your temptations. If you want something, you go get it. Period.
*Feel better about myself again!
*Look much better.
*Live the rest of my 20's healthy -- the way I should.
*Cope with stress in a way that is productive. Not with food.
*Have my boyfriend like me "just the way I am" -- but thinner =P
I have been trying to increase my water intake from 0 glasses per day to at least 8-10 per day.
I am allotted 1210 - 1560 calories, and I plan to aim for about 1300, which sounds reasonable.
Eating breakfast is something I never did, but a total MUST. I just don't know WHAT TO EAT.
I have an obsession with movies and music. I like to read. I have a passion for makeup, purses, shoes, and clothes. My favorite food is unfortunately ice cream. I have a wonderful boyfriend who tries to be supportive of my goals. I love my pets, and pretty much love my life.
