About Me:

**I believe in health at every size and have NO interesting in body shaming!**

I am a 21 year old full time college student in my junior year of undergrad, and I work part time as an office assistant.

Almost my entire family is fat (except for one brother who is skinny as a rail - I swear he took ALL of our metabolism, haha) and I am no exception. I am 5'7" and hovered around the same high weight for at least five years, but probably longer. Until last year, when I moved away to finish my degree and started living in student housing. My diet was suddenly pizza, hamburgers and fries, chinese take-out, and vodka. I expected to LOSE weight because I became more active, but my new eating habits totally canceled that out and I ended up gaining 15 pounds (the good ol' freshman fifteen – how cliché).

I try not to focus on the number on the scale, but that really upset me. I have known for a few months now that I need to take control of my weight, for myself and for no one else, but I just could never do it. In August '12, it was determined that my thyroid was just…not working. I got on medication for it, and within a few weeks I started functioning on a level of energy that I have NEVER had before in my entire life, and I am using that energy to exercise and focus on good eating habits. I keep expecting it to drop off, but it hasn't yet, and I hope that it never does! I am so excited about what's in store for me. :)

Why I want to get in shape

I'm just ready for it. Finally. I want to see what I can do.

My Inspirations

  • Diabetes and heart disease run in my family.
  • I would love to have children in the next five or ten years.
  • I want to walk into a store and buy something that ISN'T in the Plus section.
