My Lilyanna...I call her my Lilybug :)
I'm 23, 5'4 & weight 134. I started my "weight loss mission" a little over a year ago when I weighed in at 185. I had my first baby in September of 2007 & got pregnant with my second girl 3 months later. With my first daughter I lost weight before I gained any & I dropped all but maybe 5 lbs,no stretch marks no nothing. I was not so lucky the second time around. Towards the last half of my pregnancy I put on more weight than I had the time before & after her birth,the stress of 2 kids & a step daughter that I took care of full time for 3 years until this february as well,combined with other problems in my life at that point,financial & relationship wise put me in a rut. After my 2nd daughter turned 1 I found out that I was a bi-polar depressant which explained my weight being up & down,more UP than DOWN if you ask me. I peaked at 185 & was disgusted. I no longer felt good about my self,I thought when I was 18 & had initially made this page, pre pregnancy body, that I had issues...But I really didn't...I kept telling myself, "Im 22 & I'm over weight...I'M 22 & OVER WEIGHT!"...& not due to any medical problem out there,simply because I stuffed my face instead of crying or yelling...at least in front or people,because I did my fair share of those things too...For a while I just stayed in wife beaters & sweats,or my daughters fathers basketball shorts,until i wore those out...didn't go any where but to the store...I didn't want to. It felt like every one knew "Wow,look at how much weight she gained" or "She's fat & what she's wearing looks funny" I didn't want to deal with it & my biggest critic was myself...I'm okay with the fact that I might not ever look like I did when I was 18,but who does? I'm happy with as far as ive come so far,I lost 20lbs the first month of my diet & it kick started everything,boosted my courage & got the ball rolling,a little more than a year later im 50lbs less & was 40lbs less in january,im not losing as much as i was in the begining,but it hasnt discouraged me,i feel i have majority of my eating habits & problems under control,for the most part,i mean,somethings working right?! lol
I got my GED last year,enrolled in a dental assisting program at a college close by,I recently finished the in scholl part & am starting my extern hours here soon ...I want to get into Culinary Arts with in the next 5 years...I like food & cooking...Culinary Arts is just a beautiful thing!
Photography also peaks my interests a bit...If you have a real eye for it you can turn somthing ugly into somthing beautiful & somthing beautiful into somthing magnificent...I like gardens,ocean animals,the beach...waterfalls...things of that sort...Things appealing to the eyes
Initially,I cut the soda,drank water before EACH meal,cut my portions & slowly added healthier things in between meals,started eating more fresher thinggs,bananas,apples,salads,carrots & such & even sushi,wasnt my thing before,but go figure,I love it now! lol
I'm 23 years old & I live with my mom for the time being while I get my life together. Me & the father of my kids just recently split,im dating again,my girls are adjusting,alots changed. Me& their father took care of a baby he'd had from a relationship that took place during our first break up,she stayed with us & my 2 girls,from the time they were born,for 3 years until her father moved out. Shes now living with her real mother full time now,ive only seen her a couple times in the last 6 months or so,but me & her mom are working out better arrangements. I'd like to have some money saved up from here to 6 months from now,combine it with my income tax check & fly the coop!
I LOVE CARS!!! The fast & the furious 1 & 2 are the best movies ever! I like bikes also so I like Biker boys & Torque... I love S.W.A.T,Colin Ferral is too hot...& when ever you get the chance look up the Cartoon movie Lil' Pimp! It's great
