Congratulations on being open to an exciting, new chapter in your life. Before we get started I wanted to encourage you with my experience. When I was in my teens, I never worried about my weight - I could eat "whatever" without a second thought. However, that changed - and without me even noticing. In my early twenties, I lived on my own for a few years. I didn't own any furniture, let alone a bathroom scale. Before I knew it, I was just a few pounds from being considered obese.
