I'm sure that pitcher of beer hasn't helped my weight gain ;)

Hi everyone! So this is my second attempt at SparkPeople but I would say its my first REAL attempt. I’m a 22 year-old college student, who loves beaches, pools, rollerblading, playing sports, hanging with my family and friends and LOVES my dog! These past few years I have experienced some pretty tough challenges that have caused me great anxiety and stress. The stress/anxiety has lead to a 50lb weight gain and has damaged my self-confidence. Today, I sit here sick and tired of feeling bad about myself so I have decided to do something about it.

My goal is to drop 60lbs and feel confident no matter where I am, who I’m with, or what I’m wearing. I’m not only doing this for “looks” but I want to live a healthy life style for the rest of my life. I am an extremely determined person so I know I can achieve this goal…It may be difficult but it’s not impossible! Here we go!

May the sun shine upon you and fire up your heart to reach all of your goals and find joy in yourself and the world around you. Whatever battles you are fighting, whatever stresses may come your way, may you find energy, confidence, vitality and strength. This is the time to shine bright and show the world how beautiful you are. Embrace the summer-lit brilliance of each day and you will create a new life where all your wildest dreams come true. ~ Michelle
