"I am a female, 24 years old, a junior in college, 5'2 weighing around 170 pounds.
I started college when I was 18 years old, same height, weighing 117 pounds. Over the course of 6 years,
I have gained about 53 pounds, almost half of what I weighed when I started college.
I don't binge eat, I don't drink excessive amounts of alcohol. It started by being a broke college student,
relying on eating fast food for almost every meal, always using the dollar menu. It was fast, convienent, and tasted good.
Most of my meals were very late at night, because of my packed schedule of work and school.
I have always tried to diet and eat right, but the lowest I have gotten in these 6 years is 159.
I don't even look like myself anymore, and I have pretty much given up on my old self. "
