I'm 24 years old and just completed my credential courses.

I have always struggled with my weight. I was a chubby kid and that kept up with me as I grew up. Through high school I averaged around 160 lbs. I thought I was gargantuan!

When I got to college, I experienced my first major weight loss, but it was not a healthy loss. I absolutely hated the food that they served in our dining hall, so many days would pass where all I would eat was a granola bar. I quickly dropped about 30 lbs. I loved my skinny body, but I knew the way I was eating was not healthy for me.

I came home for the summer after freshman year and succeeded in putting a few pounds on, my dad is amazing in the kitchen! My sophomore year, I moved to a condo with 4 friends and I was able to cook anything I wanted. Again, I succeeded in putting on a few more pounds.

My junior year of college was when the pounds really started to pack back on. The summer before I moved back, I had met a boy and started a relationship. Problem was that he was working in Maryland! I drowned my sorrows in my food for quite a while. I also had a new roommate who was very unhealthy and sucked me into her unhealthy eating habits. We would go out to eat daily. I quickly packed on everything I had lost my freshman year.

I graduated around 165 lbs and moved home. I started dieting and joined a gym to find that I was not losing any weight. I also was not gaining any. As I threw myself into work, the gym fell by the wayside. After a year of working, I decided that I did want to get my teaching credential, so I applied to a bunch of schools and got accepted to a program. This program had me in the classroom four days a week with classes two nights a week. As I went through this program and ate out two nights a week and ate treats the other teachers would bring I quickly packed on another 10-15 lbs. One day I stepped on the scale and saw 180 lbs. I was absolutely mortified and started crying. I decided then and there it was time to change my habits. In my last summer course, I fellow teacher told me about spark and I went home and checked it out. And here I am now!

My Goals:
I like to start with small goals. So, for now, my goals stand as follows:

1) Go for a 10 min walk once a day.
2) Drink 8 glasses of water a day.
3) Get back into swing and latin dancing.

I suppose #3 might be more of a long term goal, but I'll start with these and add as I conquer these goals and begin to add new ones.

    I saw your entry on Teachers to Lose team and thought I would offer a shoulder if you ever need it. I love teaching children with Autism and have a TEACCH certification, working on ABA certification, and have attended play project and SCERTS model training along with Boardmaker and other speech and OT sensory programs. I love talking to other teachers to get ideas and give each other encouragement!
    Teaching together!!!! emoticon

    Hi Blonde_Zilla. I did a search for ppl around my age within 25 miles of my zip code and you came up and I was wondering if you would like to be buddies? I'm fairly new to California and would love to make some new girlfriends! Especially those that are wanting to lose weight like me! If you would like to be friends that would be awesome! emoticon
