When I was in high school, I was very self conscious and I think I wanted to lose weight for all the wrong reasons. Wanting to look pretty in a bikini, wanting the body that I thought boys were attracted to, and in general wanting to meet a standard of beauty set in my brain. I went about it in very unhealthy ways though. Since then, I've gotten more confident in myself, do feel like I'm pretty, and have rsa boyfriend that I've had for almost a year that thinks I look amazing. This isn't about looks. I want to be a healthier person. I want to exercise three times a week, start doing yoga, and eat healthier and less junk food all the time. It's hard when you're in college, but I'm going to try to do all those meal prep things and eat at the salad bar in the dining halls at school next semester. I'm also going to start going to the gym once the doctor clears me (I'm recovering from pneumonia) and the gyms aren't so crowded. My weight loss goal is 40lbs in a year. From what I've researched, it's reasonable and doable. The only part I'm not looking forward to is having to buy new clothes. What's everyone else's goals? That's if you feel like sharing, that is.
