Well, my name is Sarah. I am a 23-year old college student. I received my BS of Animal Science in December 2010 and will graduate in May 2015 as a veterinarian.

I've always been a bit on the heavy side but my weigh has slowly crept up. Back in 2010 I found spark and lost 20 pounds in a few months. I was happy and healthier. Then I let school, my excuses and bad habits get in the way.

Well, my name is Sarah. I am a 23-year old college student. I received my BS of Animal Science in December 2010 and will graduate in May 2015 as a veterinarian.

I've always been a bit on the heavy side but my weigh has slowly crept up. Back in 2010 I found spark and lost 20 pounds in a few months. I was happy and healthier. Then I let school, my excuses and bad habits get in the way.

In 2011, I worked at a horse farm in Kentucky and found myself down to 213lbs. It was the smallest I could ever remember. Then once again: school, excuses and more bad habits led my weigh to right back to the beginning.

I am trying to get on track this summer and build healthy so that when classes start this fall (supposedly my most difficult semester) I can't derail. I am committed to losing weight to be healthier and to be more fit. Heart disease runs in the men in my family and I want to make sure that it doesn't happen to me.

My eventual goal is to weigh 160 but I am changing my goals to go in increments as to not freak myself out.

Hopefully you all are progressing in your goals and I would love any words of encouragement or advice you could give me.

Funny you should say this ... "Hmm. Strange that your TSH was high, but not T4. Interesting." The doctor had the same reaction.

The animal shelter has a packet they hand out to each foster home which references not being able to keep every animal you foster etc. I knew going into it that the Mr would never give either of them up. Of course, as time passes my heart melts. The Bay Area landlords are unkind towards pets in rentals and will charge per pet IF they allow animals at all. :( With our pending move I was lucky to find a property manager willing to look the other direction (never asked how many we actually have) but rather said give me the name and record of your ONE cat. At the new place it's a $300 deposit for each cat ... who can afford that? I love my babies!!

Hope you are well.
