Let's see.

Well I've been trying to lose weight since I was 15 because up until that age I was very fit. I ran A LOT and I skated. When I think about it now, I blame the weight gain on a trip to Mexico in the summer before my sophmore year. We went to Guadalajara to visit family for about three weeks. While I was there I just ate ALL the time and gained around 10lbs!!! I couldn't really believe it, but I didn't do anything to get rid of the weight. I guess I just thought it would come off once I got back in school. It didn't. And it was my fault because I got super lazy, more than what I already am...lol.

So not until recently did I think it was time to do something about it. I guess the way I see it 21 year-olds should be able to put on a two piece bathing suit and feel ok in it, but I don't, and I want to put an end to that insecurity. But what makes it so much more difficult this time, is that I've never been this heavy.
I think the most I've ever weighed was about 135lbs and today I weigh 160lbs. So I am trying to go down to 135lbs and maybe a little more like 125lbs but I know I have to do it a step at a time.

At first I was in denial that I didn't look so bad, but then I realized that it wasn't just about how I looked, it was how I felt. About myself and around other people. And I found out that I wasn't too happy with either. So now I'm on the road to becoming a better person for my own health because if I don't take care of myself, no one else will.

    Hey Sharon! I saw that you posted in the Alli Support Group. I just ordered the pills yesterday and am hoping to start them as soon as they arrive. We are exactly the same weight and have the same weight loss goals. I also spent 3 weeks in Guadalajara (so ironic!) last January and gained about 8 lbs while I was there. I saw you are looking for a buddy so I was thinking maybe we can keep in contact and hold each other accountable. I know it would be easier for me to have someone to check in with. Let me know what you think. Regardless, good luck with your weight loss journey!! =)
