Hey everyone, I am a 20 year old college student from NY. I have lost about 25 lbs so far with about60-70 lbs to go! I am a chronic yo-yo dieter and I have the 6 other spark pages to prove it. My highest weight ever was 220, but that ended pretty quickly. I started THIS username on spark in the summer of 2008. For the first time ever, I found luck and lost 20-25 lbs in a short(ish) period of time. I went off to my junior year of college and some how, some way only gained 5-7 lbs, which I honestly thought i'd be back up near 200 again. I started off again at 187 on 12/28/08. Since I started over the summer, I went from a size 18 to a size 14 which is nice, but I really want to get down to a size 6 or 8!

My motivation, sorry to say it, comes from me wanting to look good with health benefits on the side. I don't really have many health problems aside from like, being obese. I have fine blood work and no heart or blood pressure problems which i'd like to keep it that way. It's really hard to be 20 when all your friends are healthy, thin and gorgeous. I want to be able to enjoy all my 20s looking and feeling in better shape than I was when I was 16.

A story that I try to remember was my first few months of college... my best friend (who is still my best friend) was talking to her home friends online about the people she met. She went to the bathroom and I wanted to see what she wrote about me... and she wrote, "My new friend Alexis is so funny, I love her! She really nice, has a gorgeous face but she is really, really fat." I cried for about 3 days. My friend knew I read it and apologized saying she "didn't really mean it" (haha- oh please). I obviously forgive her because it's true, I am fat. I still think about that, it really stung. My friend probably doesn't even remember it.
New pictures will be updated to my page at 30 pounds lost [177].
