Going back to College

Monday, January 17, 2011

I will be going back to college Wednesday. It will be my 2nd semester, as I missed last semester with knee surgery. I can hardly wait for college to start. I will automatically get more exercise. I will just have to watch my diet. I only have 2 classes, but that will take care of the afternoons when I usually have trouble with eating out of boredom. It will also keep me busy a lot of the other days doing homework. Last year I lost 40 lbs. going to college one semester and I plan on going all year long this year. I had great motivation being among all of those young women. I wanted to be their size. When I'm not going to college I don't have that motivation, because I don't go anywhere to be around people. I have to come out of that if I am going to be an office worker. Well, I'm planning on being a bookkeeper and I guess you don't need to be around that many people, but I do love being around people.

I am down over 70 lbs since joining Sparkpeople and want to make it over 125 lbs by the end of this year. I can do it. I just need motivation. I have been exercising every other day, but I have been having trouble with my diet. I have been eating too much, but with college starting, I won't have that much time to eat. That just thrills me!

I have been tracking my exercise most of the time, but I haven't gotten into the habit of tracking it all the time. I haven't been sparking as much as I should either. I haven't been tracking my food and it's because I am ashamed of how much I have been eating and what I have been eating. I just don't want anyone to know. Not even myself really.
