I want to feel good about myself. Since I've been overweight my entire life, I've never exactly felt comfortable in my skin. I want to be seen as something other than an extremely overweight girl. I don't even feel like a girl, i feel sexless. Neither male nor female--just a disgusting lump. SO.. I must change.

I'm a college student and I want to open up my career opportunities before I graduate, or at least improve my chances. At my currently weight--what I look like right now, today--no one would hire me. I've spent too many years and too much money on school to take on lesser employment for such a stupid reason--being too overweight to qualify for health insurance or something.

My Goals:
Typical--but Actual:

*I intend to not gain any more weight

*I would like to see myself drink water instead of soda or sugary drinks

*I will myself to not partake in the eating of fries or greasy food!

*I must incorporate fresh fruits and vegetables into my dietary intake each day.

A major goal is to be able to walk into the mall and shop in any clothing store I please, and be able to find a cute outfit. To be able to shop in a section other than the plus section would be such a treat!

My Program:
Agh, my program. Well, I read about this site on Yahoo Answers and I've not yet really determined how I'm going to do this, but I'm more inspired at this moment than I've been in the past 15 years to finally get healthy.

Personal Information:
I'm a 22 year old female college student from NJ. I love good conversation, intelligent people, and reading the kind of poetry that makes me feel catharses and love.

Other Information:
I love Whitman, politics and romance. Mixed together.

    First I wanted to say that I'm sorry it took me so long to reply to your comment. I wish that SP would alert you or something when you have new comments, because it usually takes me a week or so to notice them. LOL.

    Anyway, thank you for your comment and your compliments! I don't really see myself as brave, but if I have inspired you to be brave then I'm glad. I wonder if you're talking about getting on a scale in front of my husband, which I have to say I consider the bravest (is that a word??) moment of my life!! But we were together for three years by then and married for a few months already. Sometimes the people closest to us have the hardest time seeing the problem because they don't look at our physical bodies.

    Anyway, it was wonderful to hear from you!!! Send me a message anytime and I will be happy to strike up a friendship. You seem like a great girl and it is a brave step to even join SP so congratulations!!! And good luck with achieving your goals. (And trust me, if you stick to the SP program, enlist a few buddies to help, and allow yourself to believe that you can change, you will!!!!)

    You are so welcome! As an english major, I give you this quote: "You see things; and you say "Why?" But I dream things that never were; and I say "Why not?" - George Bernard Shaw. You can do this and will be much happier, confident and proud of yourself!

    Oh, where in "Joisey" are you? I'm currently in South Jersey, but grew up near Bergen county and went to college at Montclair State.

    You go, girl!!!

    You know I could just so come and cry mad tears of happiness in your presence, then of course, I could so see some "alpha male" laughing at me for crying, then I would swack him once in the gut so you and me could sit there and watch the man's man cry like a baby. Got any popcorn ? - Xavier

    I know how you feel about letting your weight effective your job once you graduate. I have been graduated for almost six months now and I still can't get a job. I was pre-law and will be attending law school in the fall. I believe I will be the only lawyer who has never worked in the legal field.

    I am a manager at Dunkin Donuts....crazy to diet there! Anyways...I had a guy come through the drive thru once and he was mad about something or other and he told me to lose some weight and get a real job. I know he was just an ass and said it to hurt me but some of it was true. I of course need to lose weight and I feel as if I am very limited in my job choices. When I go in for an interview and the interviewer is overweight I am much more comfortable. It sucks.

    Oh...and no need to tell her about your weight. If you meet her and it's an issue...she will either hire you or not. It's her loss.

    Good luck!
