Hi! My name is Ty. I am am a 25 year old law student. Male. And I really need to lose weight. I guess I will tell you a little bit about me and what I hope to gain from this site.
I grew up on the heavy side. I was about 300lbs when I started undergrad. Between my first year and second year of undergrad I lost over 100lbs. I weighed 190lbs then. I had just told my family and friends that I was gay and I started having problems with anxiety and panic attacks. I remember having days where I didn't eat anything because I felt too ill to eat. Those were the days that I didn't even feel like I could leave the house. I then started different medications and finally found one that worked for me. I have been on that med since my Junior year. At graduation from undergrad I weighed around 230lbs. Now I am in my 3rd year of law school and I weigh around 320lbs. I can't stop growing!
I get very little exercise, partly because of time constraints, but mostly because of motivation and the fact that my heart racing makes me anxious. I eat poorly because I don't know how to eat any other way. I like going out and drinking with my friends, but that comes with a ton of calories in beer and a lot of calories in snack foods when intoxicated. I have done google searching about the med that I am on and everything says that it makes people gain weight. My clothes don't fit me, I can't find clothes that do fit me, I feel tired and run down all the time, I don't know how to tell I am full when I eat, and I do not have anyone to motivate me.
I need help. Encouragement. I fear that if I do not do something now that I will be at 400lbs by the end of summer. I cannot live like this anymore.
Let's be law school buddies! I'm a 2L. You've done a lot to get to this point, so how are you going to do now? Come on, Ty, what's your game plan!?
Yes, let's be buddies! :) Where are you in school?
The South :)
I don't really do specifics on here ha.
I am also a college student. I am 19 and a business major. I am looking for a weight loss buddy if you are interested.
