I have been heavy all my life. I look back at pictures when I was a child and see chubby cheeks and chunky legs. It was supposed to be cute then, it's not now! I'm tired of it, again. August 31, 2002 I decided to do something about it. Over the next 4 years, I worked out and followed whatever diet was to my liking at the time, from South Beach to Woman's World diets featured weekly. I lost half of myself and eventually weighed 165lbs, fitting into size 8 clothes. I stayed at that weight 3 days before I let people talk me out of the things I'd accomplished. My boyfriend didn't say anything positive, my patients told me I looked better when I was heavy, and my friends didn't want to go out because I wasn't eating like we had in the past, so it wasn't any "fun". Over the next year and a half, I packed 165 pounds back on to end up right back where I started. I learned a lot in the whole process, like I know what I can do, and now I've finally come to the realization that I need to do this for me...no matter what other people say to or about me. I'm ready to go again! And this time, no one is going to convince me that I need to be FAT again!!
