Mini-Goals - My first 20 pounds gone

View Full Version : My first 20 pounds gone

My story is similar to a lot of people's. I was always the "chunky" kid growing up. I slimmed down late in middle school and stayed around a size 6-8 in high school, but I was always picked on for being fat. Always. If it wasn't the kids at school, it was my parents "commenting" about my weight. My dad is pudgy and has no room to talk and my mom is a serial dieter, never happy with where she is.

So after college my weight started to climb. And after my marriage, it climbed even more. I blamed it on being happily married. I am, but it's no excuse.

So in August, after seeing pictures from our family vacation in July, I decided it was time to finally do something. I found Fitday and started tracking my calories. Then I started walking at night. Then I found 3FatChicks. This site has made all the world of difference for me. I am held accountable and cheered on. I love it here.

So thank you everyone for helping me meet my first mini-goal. Here's to the next one!
