this happened to me in grade 10. ack. luckily I lost it all since then and I've actually lost more weight since I moved for college this year, because my parents aren't cooking big delicious meals for me. my rules: don't buy food at school! buy healthy groceries! don't drink! work out every day! ... and I feel better than ever, yay :) rad post, lol at my comment being so delayed.

i spend the first 6 months of my freshman year saying yes to the giant cookie(with vanilla frosting)and everything i found, result was i really over did it , i had to loose wait to keep my place in the ballet company so i spend the last 6 months eating tuna and pineapple ( i think i ate half of the cast of finding nemo) now (two years later) i just watch what i eat and avoid snacks .

Napping after lunch didn't help either.

LOL "Not my personal favorite (as in, I never go) but people tell me it really helps to work out." My personal choice (since I was never a breakfast person) was to fill a big Nalgene bottle full of green tea (it helps to speed metabolism) and drink it until I can make it to brunch.

Haha oh my gosh this is so true! In my first year of uni I must have put on about 15lbs and now, finishing my 2nd year, I've managed to lose most of it but am still trying to shift those last few lbs! Dont do it little ones, its not worth it!!!!!

i love that 124lbs is the panic weight! ha. to be honest, i can't believe the whole of the US isn't obese. your meals are too big and too tasty. i think i experienced 'the chicago eight' when i visited recently, and i was there for less than two weeks.

i think i gained the freshmen 15 of highschool this year!ugh. i used to take my own lunch everyday to school in middleschool since there was no cafeteria and coming into highschool eating the unhealthy lunchfood took it's toll on me, and i totally regret eating all that nasty cafeteria food!
