  15. Hi everyone..sorry about my absence from this thread, I've been very busy with finals!

    Long story short, About 4 years ago I was 147, went down to 118 by excersing and then met my boyfriend and slowly the weight crept back up to 145... That's when I got serious...
    I started weight watchers and it helped me shed about 25 pounds..within last few months I've been yo-yoing between 120-127lbs. Once I hit 127, depression sunk in and I started my WW regimine again.
    I DO NO RECOMMEND YO-YOING WITH YOUR WEIGHT! I know this is unhealthy..
    So I joined the gym with a good friend of mine and we go during our lunch hour..20 min of cardio, we split it between the stepper,precour and the treadmill..and then we do abs and arms if we can fit it in. It's been 2 months since then and I've lost 7 pounds though healthy dieting (I'm back on WW) and going to the gym
    I do not obsess over what I eat, but I do keep a very watchful eye on myself during the week. I set aside one "bad" day for myself and believe it or not, it actually helps me lose weight by doing that. It boosts my metabolism to burn more!
    I do not have a set goal weight or waist size, but I just want to look healthy and toned. Plus, I'm going to Jamaica in Jan (birthday present from my boyfriend!) so that helps keep me on track...although I am scared of putting on a bikini my boyfriend thinks I'm insane., but I think I'm still just insecure about how I would look in a bathing suit.

    Tell me your stories girls!
