My name is Melissa and I'm in my second year of college. During my freshman year I had a meal plan and a giant buffet style dining hall open all hours of the day. Needless to say I gained a few pounds since I ate tons of southern food and ice cream. Now its 2010 and I figured I'm about to begin a whole new chapter of my life. I was always an active kid and did martial arts for a long time. Now I'm in a new city and on my own. Its time for me to take responsibility of my life and my body! This is why I am on this site; to have accountability for what I do with my body. I have the support of those around me and I feel so lucky for that!
-Get healthier! -Lose some of the weight I gained -Become more confident and responsible -Find a healthy activity I can do that won't destroy my bank account
I am working of lowering the amount of carbs I eat everyday as well as counting my calories.
I plan on working out 5 days a week (cardio everyday and strength every other day).
I KNOW I am an emotional eater so that's something I'm constantly working on.
I'm taking Kickboxing 1 at my school so thats helping me stay on track!
I live in Florida and love the sunshine. I'm a college student and am a psychology/education major!

I have a black lab named Sirius Black after one of my favorite Harry Potter characters. I'll try anything at least once and love to stay active. I love to make smoothies and I am a sucker for ice cream. I am obsessed with Panda bears and Lost. I have an amazing boyfriend who always has my back and supports me in everyway :)
