Studying Public health and Nutrition.

What would you say if I told you I was the girl who bet on how many ice cream bars she could eat?
I've struggled with my weight all my life, and my mother made my "imperfection" very clear. I definitely wasn't always the "athlete" amongst my friends. I was overweight, and pretty miserable about it. I joined the sparkpeople for teens under age 18 towards the end of middle school. At the same time, I joined the track team as a last resort to kick me into shape.

From there, I literally fell in LOVE with weight loss, nutrition, and calories. I had my bouts of over obsession, even, but ultimately it's just a passion of mine I wish to share with others.

I guess the turning point for me was recognizing all food has a purpose. We eat to rebuild/heal/protect our bodies. To begin with, you don't HAVE to like healthy food more than junk, but junk food offers you nothing your body can use.
