Well I used to post hear about 8 months ago. And I used to have buddies. I am sure that they are gone. I am looking for new ones (and maybe an old one if they see this!)
My Story is a typical one (or maybe not)
I am 24 years old. I teach 4th grade. I am a part time graduate student. I have been heavy all of my life. When I was in 8th grade I wore a size 18 and it only got worse from there. I struggled with diets from the age of about 11. I weigh 276 lbs. I am 5'9" and am really out of shape. The irony is that I am really "healthy" I went for a physical a week ago and had good blood sugar, good cholesterol and low blood pressure. I almost wish the news was not good.....another motivator to kick my butt.
In college I hit a great stride. I was exercising, I wasn't eating junk and I lost about 80 lbs I got to 201 lbs. I could never reach ONEderland. And then I fell off the wagon....hard.
In the past 3 years I have gained back every ounce. (I have had loses when I attempted to lose weight agian.) Up and down up and down.....unfortunately more down than up. As of this date I weigh 276 a mere 2 lbs from the weight I started at 4 years ago.
I am here again. With a sense of motivation to truly change my life. I will do it. I have to do it.
