My story... Well to start, I have had a hard time with my weight, ever since I was in 6th grade. I was the kid who could eat anything and everything and not gain a pound. 6th grade that all caught up with me. I have been overweight ever since.
My senior year of high school I got fed up with being out of breath after taking the stairs up to the second floor of my high school. I was 200 lbs. I lost 34 lbs. I went to New York and indulged and gained half of it back within 3 weeks. I gained the other half back while I was at college. I am now at 238 lbs.
Weight loss has been a struggle for me and now being single again, it's depressing. I hate that people judge everything by its cover and when I met my ex-husband I had told my dad if the men don't like what they see then that's their problem. I wasn't going to lose weight just to get a date.
I fear the dating world. I fear judgment and rejection. All due to low self-esteem and personal issues. I have been working through all that and hope I can soon lose the weight, be healthy and happy. I have set my goal to 150, even though I don't care what I get to as long as I can feel healthy and be happy. I have lucked out so far in my life and had great blood pressure and very slightly elevated cholesterol.
I want to lose the weight before a health problem shows up. So here we go on a new adventure. :)
