New to fitday, not to the weight loss thing...
Hey all! As the topic of this post indicates, I'm not new to weight loss, body image issues, and all the stuff that goes with it.
About a year and a half ago I started becoming aware of what I was eating and began exercising more. This summer I really kicked it up, and went from 162 pounds in fall of 2009 to 138-140 in fall of 2010. Since then, I've basically been plateaued. Part of this has to do with me being in something of an eating rut, and I have frequently binged due to stress and boredom (and, as I just learned, hypothyroidism isn't helping things). It sucks, and it is completely NOT what I was doing this summer, and I seem to have lost the mindset I had then.
I'm here to figure things out, track what I eat, sort of try cutting out as much processed food as I can while in college (difficult to do, let me tell you!) and connect with other people working towards goals of their own (or maintaining!)
Okay that was a bit long... but yeah. I'm not going to start tracking until tomorrow, and I'm setting some long-term goals for myself: lose 10 pounds in 3-4 months (VERY slow, I know, but I think slow and steady is probably better at this point), continue maintaining my fitness despite hypothyroidism and patello-femoral syndrome messing things up.
Woo! Let's do this.
