Hello everyone! I just want to introduce myself, partially because I know if I do it will motivate me to keep up with my goal to really use MFP! I am 21 years old and have gained 15 pounds since entering college. I have a weak heart and weak knees, and know that if I want to live as long as my great-grandmother did I have to get in shape. I'm not aiming to lose the full 15 pounds I've gained, I figure a little weight gain from high school is probably healthy, but I would really like to lose eight pounds to get back to a healthy weight for me.
I am looking for tips on how to incorporate exercise and healthy eating into a very tight schedule, so I look forward to reading what you all have to say on the message boards!
