I totally understand. I gained a whooping 50lbs since starting college. It is heartbreaking when you can't wear any of your clothes and go shopping only to find you're buying clothes 2 sizes bigger, I know all about it! The best part is you're taking control now! Good luck and hopefully the next time we both can share our success stories! Happy losing!!
I'm going to lose this weight and be ready for the BLET next year!

God for you for deciding to buckle down. I had always been a bit bigger, but I blew up to 210 in college. I used this site and really started watching what I ate. I'm down to 170 now which is the lightest I've ever been. (Unless I go back to like 8th grade). If you want to chat about anything feel free to send me a message. Congrat's on becoming determined, and good luck to making it a reality!

Hi, My names Katelyn and I am 20 years old and for as long as I can remember I have had a weight problem. I thought more about how good bad food tasted rather than thinking about what kind of food I was putting in my mouth :/ When I got into college I was a healthy 155 lbs. I am 5'7. Leaving my freshman year of college I weighed a frightening 179 lbs.!!! I was scared, upset, and wanted to hit myself for doing this. I couldn't believe I had gained so much weight. You hear people talk about the freshman 15, but I gained the freshman 24. WOW! Before going to college I swore to myself I would never gain the freshman 15, well I was right....I gained more. I started to cry all the time. My cute skinny jeans didn't fit anymore, the shirts I wanted to wear were too tight. I didn't know what to do. That summer I joined Weight Watchers sort of. My mom joined it so she photocopied her food logs and let me use her calculator and I lost 10 lbs. But I wasn't fully committed. I was at least a little bit happier. But the next year would prove other wise. My first semester I stayed the same. Didn't lose or gain. Second semester (which would be the one that just ended) I studied abroad in England and went to Italy for my spring break. Oh god!! Also, after my studies I went to Ireland with my whole family...Can you say Guinness!! I remember weighing myself in England and I was 164. I came home Sunday May 27th and weighed myself. I remember praying that I didn't gain weight. I looked down at the scaled only to see a 178 :(( what!!?? I gained 11 lbs. in Ireland. I was so mad and upset. AGAIN! That's when I put my foot down. I am not doing this up and down game anymore. I am sick of looking in the mirror and seeing something I am not happy about. I just want to finally be happy. So on June 1st 2012 I decided to challenge myself. I decided to lose 30 lbs. before my 21st birthday!! And I'm going to do it too. I have officially joined weight watchers. I have my own calculator, my own PointsPlus my own weigh ins and I attend meetings every Wednesday. My first weigh in was on May 30th. I weighed 176.4. I am so excited and have been going to this gym I joined. It holds all these classes like Zumba, Kick Boxing, Boot camp, Spinning, and Body Sculpting. I love it!! I feel like I get a better workout when going to the classes. I have also started a blog. Please follow me and check it out every once in a while. Feel free to leave me a comment. I post the recipes I make for dinner, which is usually weight watchers friendly, I post pictures of my dinners and I write about my weigh ins and my day. So please head on over to my blog and support me even a little bit by dropping a comment with words of advice and support!! Thanks Guys!!
