Default Not A New Member, But A New Me

I've been a member of 3FC since March 2010. When I began I weighed 250 lbs which was my heaviest ever.. At that time. I came home from a long trip with my mother to find I had gained 10 pounds in one month and had an epiphany. That was when I decided I needed to do what I had wanted to do since the age of 9. For a while I did. By February 2011 I weighed 160lbs and was the most healthy/active I had been in probably my entire life. I was proud of myself but I still saw the 250lb me when I looked in the mirror. My self image was not what it should have been at all. By this time I felt like I could conquer anything and went after an opportunity I thought I had wanted my entire life. As it turns out, it was too good to be true and I felt like a complete failure. I rapidly fell into a depression and managed to pack on 135 from August 2011-now. I succeeded in other things for a year but eventually it all hit me and I hit bottom. I'm happy to say that though I am not completely happy with where I am in life at this moment, I have come to some realizations about myself and feel the same level of motivation I felt before to lose weight. But this time it is for me.

I've been with the same man for nearly 5 years and he has stood by me through all the bad, good and the ugly and there is nothing I want more than to spend the rest of my life with him. I want to be his beautiful bride and the healthy mother of his children.. And I want to give him the golden years. If I continue treating my body the way I have, who knows where I will be 30 years from now. I want to give him everything I can, and I also don't want to cause my suffering later down the road. I feel so much more sure of who I am.. Maybe not what I should be doing but definitely who I am. So lady's, I'm introducing myself as a newfound Avery
