Paula is right - you are definitely not alone! I'll be starting my MA in two weeks, which is exciting and terrifying. I need to drop about thirty pounds as well (not my overall goal, but a good start).

Hi Ann,

Your intro title caught my eye because it perfectly describes me! I am 4 classes and a lit review out from finishing my master's and I am way ready. I also gained 30 pounds, made me land at my highest. Just wanted you to know, you aren't alone!

"Our running shoes are really erasers. Every step erases a memory of a past failure. Every mile brings us closer to a clean slate. Each footstrike rubs away a word, a look, or an event, which led us to believe that success is beyond our grasp."

Hi all -
I'm Ann. I'm a rising second year graduate student (out of 3 years) at the University of Maryland studying History and Library Science. My senior year in undergrad I spent in Wales and walked around everywhere. I returned to the U.S., moved halfway across the country, started grad school, worked 35 hours a week and ate a lot. So it came as no surprise that I managed to gain 30 pounds in the past year.

I'm hear because doing it alone I haven't succeeded in the past. I know I need the support and the guidance to get over this hurdle to a healthier lifestyle. It's going to be a challenge but I think I'm finally fed up enough to go after it and keep it up. Plus, I'm going to be the maid of honor (and only bridesmaid) in my sister's wedding in August 2015 and I would like to feel good about how I look in the photos.

All the best!
