As long as I can remember, I have had problems with my weight. Looking back now, and seeing photos of myself around the age of 14, I realize that back then, there wasn't really a problem. I was probably the 'fat' kid, because my sister was just a lot skinnier than I was. My parents didn't say that or treat me like a 'big' kid, but other people did compare.
And I think somewhere down the line, I just accept being big, and didn't really care about how I looked anymore. In my last years in high school (age 16 to 18), my weight went up a bit, and at the yearly physical we got at school, I was told to look after my weight a bit, because I was going to a BMI that was above 22.
And then came my 'disaster' year at Uni. I had never been away from home, and I decided to give it a try, and to say the least, it didn't turn out the way I had wanted. I became a bit depressed, and pulled out before the final exams of that year. I struggled with my self all during summer, and then when September came I went to a university closer to home, so I could just commute each day.
Not feeling good about myself, I didn't get any exercise anymore and I started eating more than usual. Needless to say that after the four years in university, I weight way too much. I reached about 100 kg. That's when I decided it was time to change. I joined a gym, at first with my sister, later with my mom or on my own. I went there for about two years, and lost 15 to 20 kg. I stayed at that weight for a year or two, and then I wanted to lose more to get to a healthy weight.
Now, six years after university, I have lost about 40 kg in total, and weigh about 60. I'm a lot more active, eat healtier, look better (even if I say to mysel) and I feel better. I have a healthy weight, and I will do everything I can to keep it that way. I don't want to go back to where I started from.
