Goal Photo Album - Going the Distance
09-11-2007, 09:58 PM
My adolescent life was spent as a healthy yet chubby girl. I remember weighing 140 pounds in the 4th grade - I was about 5'0". I struggled to lose and maintain through my middle and high school years. My weight got up to 185 when I was 16, and then I balanced out at around 165 and 5'9" tall. When I was 19 I developed an eating disorder and lost down to 135 through hours of cardio and a starvation diet. When I turned 21 in 6/04 and fell in love with my boyfriend in 12/04, I ended up weighing 175 pounds in February of 2005 and wearing tight size 14 jeans. I took a little bit of that weight off, but completely dedicated myself to a healthy lifestyle in March 2007. Today, at 24, 5 years after suffering from disordered eating, I weigh 135 pounds, and wear a size 6 but now I eat plenty and know how to work out smarter and harder instead of longer.

Well, congratulations! I can really relate to you - I too started out at 175, ended at 135, wear near the same size, and had eating disorders off and on for 5 years - isn't it nice when you can overcome that stuff and really start treating your body the way it should be treated? :)
You look absolutely fantastic. :D
