I Don't Want It to Be Too Late.

Hi everyone! My name is Jessica and I'm 18, almost 19 years old. I'm a sophomore in college.

I don't want it to ever be too late to change things. I don't want to be an overweight mom. I don't want to find out I have a health risk and then add my weight to that list. I don't want to let things keep going the way they are and then wake up and try to remember when it got this bad. I want to change my life and my body now and I want to make this change permanent.

On a superficial note, I want to be a girl that people want to look at. I want to be comfortable with what I look like compared to everyone around me.

I plan on going to the gym tomorrow after class and probably running, maybe riding a bike. My biggest problem is keeping up a schedule. I have class everyday from 12:30 to 5, with a slight variation on that on a few days. I will be on an intramural softball team this year and I hope to start rowing again soon.

I know that I'm lacking self-confidence and I feel that this is a step in the right direction. I really hope that having people in the same mindset as myself to talk to and vent to will help.

I need to get in better shape, for my health, for my image and for my future.

Here's to me and you, and everyone who has ever wanted to do something for themselves. Here's to being selfish. :)

I don't like being fat and going to the gym. I feel like I need to be in shape to go to the gym. I'm going into my soph year of college and I'm on a weightloss program. I lost 20 pounds in one month...and I haven't been weighed for 3 weeks now... but I NEED to move more. I'm just embarrassed.

great read. wow, sounds like you have a busy schedule ahead, don't let it deter you. wanting to be a better you is not selfish at all, you have to learn to take care of yourself before you can take care of others. it's better to get a jump start on it, before it's too late, you're ahead of the game there. good luck on all your endeavors!
