I am so happy to see this team on Spark People. I have such a hectic school schedule that I always feel like I have no time to live healthy. I am a full time student with a double major of Literature and History. I volunteer my time at my local community center tutoring kids in an after school program. I'm a member of the NSCS chapter at my school. I am currently working on my first novel and attend a writers' group every week. I am also married and have a child of my own. So I have very little free time. I can't imagine how hectic things would be if I had a job too.
Spring is my last semester at community college, and I am waiting to see what schools I got accepted to right now. I will be transferring next fall, hopefully to UCLA or Occidental.
I came to the realization recently that I really need to do something about my lifestyle because I am 31, and I am really unhealthy. I am very close to 300 lbs., and I never thought I would get that big. Things like walking have become difficult, and I am in a lot of pain most of the time.
When I envision myself standing on stage to get my diploma, I don't see a fat me. I have to make that dream come true.
