"A little over a year ago it was the summer before my freshman year at Uni.
I had spent the summer lounging about playing video games and reading, and gained a bit of weight.
So I wasn't exactly thin when I entered my first semester - 6'0" and 200lbs, with a 36 inch waist.
Surprisingly, during the first few weeks I dropped the weight I had gained due to the increased amount
of walking I had to do every day. My pants were practically falling off. So school went fine and the year flew by.
By the time march rolled around, I realized that my shirts were getting harder to button up and my pants were
nowhere near falling off. I moved back home a while later and stepped on a scale - 222lbs. My initial weight loss
prompted my diet of fried chicken and cola all year, and I had gained 22 pounds, ballooning my stomach
and adding two inches onto my waistline! I had to buy new clothes this summer to accomodate my 38 inches."
