linguana: I'm a new user, too.

Hey everyone,

I'm still a bit lost here, but I think posting my stats should be the easiest part of this. :)

Name: Linguana
Age: 23
Height: 5'3"
Current Weight: 119
BMI: 21.1
Highest Weight: 136 (before I lost a lot last July)
Lowest Weight: you mean other than when I was 12, I assume ;) In that case: 114
Short term goal weight: 110
Long term goal weight: 99
Something about yourself and/or a picture of yourself:

Well, I'm a student which means that I don't live with my parents who watch what I eat or can force me to eat all those fatty, greasy things that made my mom look the way she does (she's clinically obese, by now). I've always wanted to lose weight because I was on the border to overweight for a long time (most of my school time - that sucks!) and then I "accidentally" lost a lot of weight (almost 20 pounds) when I took a job as a travelling reporter and had neither time nor money to buy real food. Plus, my job required me walking around cities all day long which gave me about 6 hours of exercising per day with a measly breakfast and maybe a sandwhich to keep me going. when I came back from that job I started running and looked very healthy for a while. But then... well, I guess you all know how the downward spiral goes.

Anyway, now my boyfriend (who's into reeeeaally skinny girls) told me he only finds me physically attractive when I'm skinny and while I'm his dream girl and he wants to spend the rest of his life with me, I'm just not hot enough at the moment. Now, I'm facing the tough choice between dumping him and keeping lying to myself or between seeing the truth (namely that I look much fatter than my weight might make you think) and lose weight. So here I am.
