I'm not very good at introductions online but here it goes:

I'm a 20 year old college student who moved from my homestate (wonderful Colorado) two years ago to go to the state of NJ where my dream university was waiting. Everything seemed perfect. I was at the school I had been dreaming about since I was three (literally) and I was meeting new amazing friends and doing extremely well academically. I also met the love of my life and we have been together ever since. Everything seemed to be perfect...there was just one problem: I was gaining weight like never before. I went from running 8 miles each day in order to train for volleyball, to quitting the volleyball team completely and not doing any exercise whatsoever! I pigged out at late night study groups, ate dessert with my friends, and well... fully engaged in the college lifestyle of unhealthy foods, stress, little sleep, and no exercise. I went up 10 sizes in two years and gained over 45 pounds! Two days ago my boyfriend just went to the doctor and found out he was 2 BMI points from being obese and he is roughly the same size as me but much taller. That scared me so I went to the doctor and found that I am 3 points away from being obese as well. I was at a loss for words. Throughout high school by BMI was always 18 or slightly underweight. I was SHOCKED. i didn't think that I, a girl who was always trying to gain weight as a teenager, could have honestly had a bmi of 27. I was floored. I knew i was "pleasantly plump" but this was the push I needed to lose weight once and for all. I'm ready to make a life style change and I'm excited about the journey and the great people I know I'm going to meet on my journey! Add me as a friend and let's get fit!
