Hey ya'll

My name is Bri and I attend Elon University as a student-athlete. The first semester of this year, my sophomore year, was a trip. I made a point of getting out there and meeting more people, especially more black people, and I ended up getting involved in the wrong ways. For one, partying became too much of a priority and the heavy drinking that I was doing caused some unnecessary drama in my life. I also got involved with several jocks, and though I never went so far as to lose my virginity, I didn't respect myself like I should have. That's all behind me, though. I've learned to balance the partying/ socializing, academics and sports, and my performance on the court and in the classroom really improved at the end of this semester. However, I can't say the same for my relations with guys. Even though, thank God, I put an end to the hooking up and whatnot, I still have been struggling with just being an independent black woman. A woman who is not needy and dependent on the attentions and company of these guys who are less than genuine. I just want to be the mysterious woman and in control woman that I'm meant to be. I'm tired of having guys come to me a little and then I go to them too much by revealing too much about myself, being too friendly, texting/ talking too much, etc. Every guy that shows an interest in me, I end up scaring away or turning off with my...earnestness. And I know that at the root of that behavior is a low self-esteem and lack of self-confidence that is a result of a poor body image and weight gain caused by binging. The binging/ emotional eating has recently been recurring and it's got to end. I need to be ready for the tennis season and for the new year, academically. I'm 5' 4" and, this summer, I was about 150 lbs and fit. Now, I'm 167 and just not where I want to be. My goal is to start right now and get my life and mind straight! When I return to school I want to be ready for these guys too! And, not gonna lie, I want to get back at the ones who played me. I wanna be lookin fine and feelin great, and I want them to be always thinkin about me like I used to do with them. And this time when they come at me, I'll play things right and be the one in control. 2011, Briana Berne needs to be dominating in her sport, in the classroom, and IN LIFE! And with my fitness and health being sooo important to me, I gotta set getting that right as a top priority. Being a part of this team will be a big help I know it, and I'm hoping that you guys can give me some great advice about womanhood and health and, hopefully, I can be a help to ya'll as well. One thing I pride myself on is my positivity (definitely more positive with others than with myself, but I'm workin on that), so I know I can bring that to the table. Ok, see you on the message boards!
