Anyway, my actual name is Christina and I go to a small college in Maryland. I came to this website because I follow someone on tumblr who uses this site and and I was very inspired by her success so I figured coming to this site would be a good idea.
Since I was about 9 or 10 I've been self-conscious about my body causing me to go through periods of what I now realize was fasting and binging. Since I've developed these habits over half of my life, when I tried to give them up my body freaked out on me, causing me to gain the wait. Everyone refers to it as the freshmen 15 but mine wasn't caused by that and it was more like 20 haha.
So... I'm here because I need support. I don't really have it from anyone (my family and friends are not too into exercise or eating healthy) except my one best friend. She doesn't need to lose weight though and doesn't even know what that feels like so I don't exactly feel encouraged by her. It's also irritating that I'm more athletic than she is.
Sorry I put more than a brief little bit about myself on here. I guess I got carried away lol.
