I joined up on sp after christmas time when i was hit with the fact that i had gained 20 pounds in my first semester and about 30 pounds total since the christmas before . I wasn't very active with sp and ended up kind of using fitday for a few month. I tried to watch what i was eating (and drinking...) and i started exercising with my now best friend. That helped me maintain my weight and start retoning my physique. My best friend from back home told me about sp and i rejoined and started causually tracking my food and attending classes at the ymca. I noticed very little change from may to june. Then in July I lost about 5 pounds in the span of three weeks. After that i stayed stagnant as far as numbers and size are concerned, but i continued toning up. In aug i returned to school and dropped around another 5 pounds, bringing me to about 123. I'm still 8 pounds heavier than i have ever been (well for being as out of shape as i am, i use to be a solid 118+ and very content then i lost a lot of muscle due to a few sicknesses and lack of use) All my jeans are starting to fit again and my stomach is beginning to flatten out. My long term goal is to get down to about 113 -115 and to stay above 110; with my build i begin to look way too thin once i go below 110.

Fitness Minutes: 315

My Goals:
-reach 112-115 by christmas

-get in 4 miles m/w/f. 2 miles t/th.

My Program:
i''ve recently become attached to running. as of right now i can run two 8-8.5 minute miles consecutively.

-i have cheerleading practice two days a week, m/w, t/th alternating everyweek.

-i am in a group exercise class that lasts about 50 minutes ever t /th

-and of course college night at the clubs means lots of "dancing" on thursday night

-and once parking is free at the beach (end of oct) i will be going in the morning to get a .5-1 hour walk in everyday

Personal Information:
I gained the dreaded freshman 15, more like 20, my first semester....i didn''t really realise it until i came home during break. i mean i knew i had gained some but it was a low blow when i stepped on a scale. i cried for a while and became quite depressed bc i had never weighed over 115, i even felt big at the size bc all my friends were (still are ha) so small. So once i got back to school my best friend and i started working out and trying to eat right and i started to notice a little change but not much. I''ve upped my physically activity and and trying to work a healthy diet into a college setting... i''m really glad we have our own kitchen!
