Hi :) I just joined this community and wanted to introduce myself. My name is Beth and I'm 25. I'm 5'6 and when I graduated from college, I was 135 pounds. If I was really active one month, I'd drop down to 130. And if I was drinking a lot one month or really stressed out (think finals!) and eating pizza every other night, I'd go up to 140. But for the most part, I was happy with how I looked and was able to maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle.

All of that changed in 2002 and 2003 when I was hit with some personal trauma. I didn't handle it well and gained quite a bit of weight in a very short period of time. I'm not sure what my highest weight was because I stopped stepping on the scale once it hit 165 but I wouldn't be surprised if I hit 170+

Anyway, I just relocated to a new city and since I haven't found a new job yet, I had some spare time today to look at some old pictures on my computer. I was so surprised to look at pictures from last summer and last fall and then compare them to one that I took yesterday! If anybody's interested, I have them posted in my journal. :)

I haven't reached my final goal of 130 yet, but I'm close and in some ways, I feel like I've already made it. Yay!
