I'm a 22 y/o Materials Engineering and Chinese Language student currently in my fifth year of college.

Why I'm Here:
I've wanted to lose weight since I was in middle school. I weighed about 150 in 8-9th grade and by my sophomore year I was about 125. However, in college I gained the freshman 15...and the sophomore 15...and the junior 15....and was working on the senior 15 this year until this February!

I started off weighing 170lb, and for someone of my height and frame (I'm only 5'2" and small boned) that is just too much! I'm ready to change and so far this website has been a great tool to help me along the way.

I'm doing this just for me, so I can look at pictures of me and not feel ashamed. I also want to be in shape and healthy. And perhaps my most silly reason is for more security in my relationship...we've been together 5 years and I know he'd never do anything to hurt me, but sometimes I just feel like....why does he keep dating a chub?........ya know?

My Goals:
Long Term:
Start Weight: 172lb
Goal Weight: 115lb

-Run in a race

-Be fit enough for Judo

-Fit into my black dress

My Program:
Calorie Counting:

Consume ~ 1300 per day
Burn ~ 450 per day

Cardio 4-5 times a week, 1 to 1.5 hours each time
Pilates EVERY day...I love it!

I don't want to sound like an infomercial...but I just bought Turbo Jam and I think it's pretty fun for a work out, plus it makes me do some serious sweating.

As for eating, I just really try not to have anything that will tempt me in my cupboard...I just don't buy it! And I measure all my servings so I can be aware of my portion control.

    Hi Molly, I read what you wrote on the wall "Are all calories created equal?" I think you are dead on! I really liked what you wrote! Very good information. Sometimes I read what people have written, and I don't agree at all, but you are correct!!! Thank you for taking so much time to write all of that! I am sure people will get a ton of use out of it. Have a great day=) emoticon
