New Me, One Pound at a Time
Today I am starting my journey to a new Me. I am going to the gym for the first time in 3 months right after I finish this post. I am 19 years old and a Sophomore in college. I have a BMI of 34.0. I also come from a large family where sweets and unhealthy food surround me. I lovelovelove to cook and bake. OH and I work at an Italian Bakery...
This means I have a lot of work to do in the next coming months. I want to be able to go out with my friends and not worry about being the only fat one. I want to go to the beach and not worry about people staring at my jiggly thighs and stomach. I want to feel sexy when I am around my boyfriend of 4 years. I want to feel beautiful all the time.
I really am going to do this. I really am going to do this. I really AM going to do this. I REALLY AM GOING TO DO THIS.
If anyone has any tips or tricks to help make this easier while I am at college, I commute, but fast food restaurants are always on my ride there, and sometimes they just smell soooooo good. What would be good lunch options that would be fine in a lunch box without a refrigerator? What would help me not eat the tempting sweets at the bakery or at home?
I really appreciate any and all support that come from you because I know that if I have someone that believes in me, I will be able to do this.[/font]

Congrat to you for making the commitment to get rid of the excess weight--it sounds like you've got a few hurdles in your way, but if you're determined I know you can clear them all with ease.
Make a plan and work it and don't give up for anything.
Personally, and this is just me, I'd have to take a "zero tolerance" stance on bakery items--hopefully you can handle having "only one" but I don't think I could.
Anyway, have a read through the subforums--there is lots of good advice and people who care and don't hesitate to ask if you have specific questions.
