I echo all welcome aboard messages. Hardest thing about the diet is the crazy schedules everyone lives by. There are great recipes here. I've committed to bringing my lunch with me 5 days a week and limit "eating out" to only once during the work week. This helps me control the calories as well as spend less on food.

Understanding the hectic lifestyle of college etc (not the greatest environments for eating healthy) I would recommend finding a restaurant that has the great healthy options for you and committing to going there or pack some food and bring it with you to work/in the classroom. I understand it's easier said then done but the first step is trying and seeing what resistance there is to having lunch in a break room or in the back of a classroom where you won't interrupt the lectures.

I wish you luck in the journey. It is possible though you may just have to be creative.

emoticon Danielle and emoticon to the team! There are lots of tools and support here. Try breaking the 100lbs into 10 lb increments. It won't seem so over whelming. Reaching small goals add up to big goals.

Welcome,
the easiest way to lose a lot of weight when you don't have too much time to exercise is going low-carb in my experience. You don't ever feel deprived because you can eat generous amounts of fat and protein. Check out some of the low-carb/primal/paleo teams, you can find them from my spark page.
Cheers,
Birgit

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.

Hi my name is Danielle and i am 22 years old. I am trying to lose 100 pounds. I have a very active lifestyle but the foods that I eat and the time that i eat has caused me to gain weight. I work 40 hours a week at Walgreens pharmacy as a technician and i go to college full time to become a pharmacist. When I am not doing that i am with my family or with my boyfriend and neither one has good eating habits. I just need people that will back me up and help me reach my goals.
