Default Committing to this!

Hi all, I'm Kat, I'm about to be a college senior and I'm trying to get back to my healthy weight. I was my ideal weight back in high school at 154, but the freshmen 15 hit me..and then the sophomore 15..and the junior 15. It's shameful and it makes me angry that I've done this to myself.
I've tried to get back onto the healthy wagon of diet and exercise but I continue to fall off and it sucks.

But this summer I've been quite determined, no more excuses. I started off at 235 in May. Now I'm at 206 and I want to continue down this road. I want to be back where I was, but healthier and stronger. I just need some guidance

I exercise on my own (cannot afford the gym on a student budget) so far it's been running with my dog, push ups, and jumping rope everyday. I enjoy it and it makes me feel good.

My problem is the diet.... I grew up in a Puerto Rican household and the diet wasn't healthy for me at all. High sodium, fried foods..you name it. But I'm not going to blame it all on that either. I eat when I'm bored too. But I've stopped doing that this summer. I occupy myself other ways. I don't like cooking so quick meals are the ideal for me and also a fault in the past. Quick usually didn't mean healthy. But I am learning to cook and just get my butt into gear!
