Entered College a Healthy Guy - College Weight Gain Story

"I had entered college a healthy guy at 5'11" 180 lbs and in pretty good shape, I played tennis in high school and always went to the gym.

Well, the dining halls are all you can eat here and I pretty much did just that. I didn't have a scale until I went back for Thanksgiving break, I knew that I put on some weight since my pants were pretty tight but they still fit. I was shocked it said 198lbs, so i gained 18 lbs in what two months!

Well I didnt think much of it but now I am at 208 lbs and can't seem to stop putting on the weight, but that is what I get for just eating as much as I want of whatever I want.

Just watch out because it will sneak up on you!"
