Freshmen 15

Hello All,

We've All heard of freshmen 15, we say that we will be able fight and not fall into the trap of freshmen 15. At least I thought I could but I hate to say that I did lose the fight for freshmen 15 for many reasons. 

But first a short background on me...I've never been thin, I went through a phase where I hated myself but after losing some weight I started to love who I am and dress myself so that I felt comfortable with myself. During my weight lose I learned that I would eat when I was bored and that I was emotional eater and I would ask myself if I was hungry or bored and eventually I was able to stop the emotional eating.

After starting college I started eating when I was bored and I spent WAY to much time at the dinning hall and felt the need to eat when I was hanging out with friends. I was a member of the fitness center but didn't go nearly enough!  

After starting the summer and getting home I had time to think about solution how for me to lose the freshmen 15 and keep off when I return to college. So, here are my ideas:
1: Create an eating schedule such as breakfast, morning snack, lunch, afternoon lunch, and dinner
2: Actually eating breakfast, they say that helps keep you healthier
3: Join a gym, one that has a summer work out program for students
4: Find a way to stay healthy at home and at school 

I want to say that I'm not one of those people who hates themselves. I don't want to lose weight to be prettier. I want to lose weight to be healthy and in shape. 

I was at my thinnest during my senior year when I looked like this...

Now  look more like this...

I hope to one day be back to my thinner self but if I stay the size I am and end up healthy I will be happy!

Starting tomorrow I will start my new eating schedule and find a way to work out at home! Its all part of me journey as a college student.
