I remember sitting down on my computer the summer before my freshman year. I believe I was about 140 pounds. I remember signing up, planning the 2lbs week, letting spark calculate my days until my goal weight. I remember thinking then that those several months seemed too long, I wanted to be thinner sooner.

Here I am, 4 years later, heavier than I was then, thinking "if only I had actually been patient, and stuck with the timeline."

It's funny how time can go so slow or so fast.

    Life has a way of throwing obstacles in our way, but you are strong, beautiful, and AMAZING! You may have struggled. You may have been distracted, but you've never given up. You've also accomplished some AMAZING fitness firsts! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon You're on your way, and nothing is going to stop you.

    I think that is the whole point.
Getting to goal weight is not something we should aim to do in a rush - it should be something that happens gradually - and then is maintained without too much stress.

If you start to make the gradual changes, in 4 more years you won't regret the time.

    It's never too late to start! Remember, you're also 4 years older (and wiser).. I'm sure you've learned a lot in the time that's passed, including the virtue of patience from this very experience! You can do this!
