I'm not very good at introductions online but here it goes:

I'm a 20 year old college student who moved from my homestate (wonderful Colorado) two years ago to go to the state of NJ where my dream university was waiting. Everything seemed perfect. I was at the school I had been dreaming about since I was three (literally) and I was meeting new amazing friends and doing extremely well academically. I also met the love of my life and we have been together ever since. Everything seemed to be perfect...there was just one problem: I was gaining weight like never before. I went from running 8 miles each day in order to train for volleyball, to quitting the volleyball team completely and not doing any exercise whatsoever! I pigged out at late night study groups, ate dessert with my friends, and well... fully engaged in the college lifestyle of unhealthy foods, stress, little sleep, and no exercise. I went up 10 sizes in two years and gained over 45 pounds! Two days ago my boyfriend just went to the doctor and found out he was 2 BMI points from being obese and he is roughly the same size as me but much taller. That scared me so I went to the doctor and found that I am 3 points away from being obese as well. I was at a loss for words. Throughout high school by BMI was always 18 or slightly underweight. I was SHOCKED. i didn't think that I, a girl who was always trying to gain weight as a teenager, could have honestly had a bmi of 27. I was floored. I knew i was "pleasantly plump" but this was the push I needed to lose weight once and for all. I'm ready to make a life style change and I'm excited about the journey and the great people I know I'm going to meet on my journey! Add me as a friend and let's get fit!

    Hi Jasmine, thanks for your support on my blog and the add. I know I am much stronger than this. I just had to write to blow some steam and try to shake this crappy feeling off. I wish I only had 30 or 40 lbs to loose instead of 100 =( I know I can do 30 or 40 I've done it before but 100!! Seems like a life time. You can just come around and tell me to get off my booty instead of cheering lol that might work better. You're beautiful and you will surpass your goals! =)
