I never really gave much thought about my weight (the women in my family were always just naturally thick), until two things happened: my little sister started losing weight through extreme diet and exercise; and I realized just how much heavier I was than anyone else in my family.
I realize now that at some point in my early teens, I was severely depressed and just stopped caring about everything, food, exercise, social activity, doing pretty much anything. I spent so much time just in bed.
Luckily, until last May, I had school and college to force me out and about, moving. Since then, I've put on another 20 lbs from sitting in a chair at work all day.

But on January 9th, the place I worked closed its doors forever, and I decided to start moving again.

No weight loss yet, but everyone I see tells me I do look leaner, and I feel more energized. And I've remembered how much I loved gyms when I was younger. So now I find myself there all the time.

    Hey- I saw that you were starting again a few months ago. I'm trying to get back on track too (my SparkName has changed though, it was KissyTina). Hope you are doing well! Hit me up if you're around, maybe we can support each other!

    Hey There!

    Haven't seen you around in awhile and I thought I'd come by to see what you've been up to!

    Are you still writing a lot? What kind of work are you doing?

    Hope all is well for you,

    I'm impressed you went out to eat and still just went above your cal. range.

    I am out of town all weekend and eating out I don't know how I am going to do :(

    What movie did you see?
