Not new, but starting fresh

so this isnt my first time falling off the bandwagon, but hopefully the last. I'm 22, 5'6, and 216 lbs. my heaviest was 222, and quite a few factors have contributed to my weight gain. I was an active kid, stopped sports, gained a little weight. then hit university and began to stress eat, sat down a lot more (studying) and got into a car accident which completely limited my abilities. I'm finally back in good working condition, and have graduated from my studies. I will be a REgistered nurse after writing my registration exam. I managed to land a camp nurse job in order to get to stay outside and do lots of physical activities to support my weight loss. I've taken an interest in lifting weights, but i have no idea where to begin, and i feel i should lose some fat first before lifting heavy. So MFP, I'm starting again, and hopefully for the last time.
Add me as a friend if you have similar goals/started at a similar point or want to motivate eachother


  • I'm adding you. I'm back after not logging in for a couple months, and it seems like all of my friends have been slipping too. I think I need some new people to keep me motivated!
