I was overweight for a long long time, like nearly 20 years. I finally had the perfect storm of stuff that lead me to getting healthy in 2008. I went from 204.6# on 1 Jan 08 to 148.8 on 2 Sept 08. I maintained for over 3 years, but stress over the last several have led me to eating a lot of feelings and internalizing some very negative messages from a very bad job situation. It has taken me nearly 2 years to fight back from that internalized negativity and PTSD. I have been at my new job for 3 months now and I finally feel like I have a solid floor on which I can begin to rebuild and get back on the path to the person I know I can be. REBOOT weigh ins: (starting) 15 Oct 15-175.6# & 89.7% score on my goal success. 20 Oct 15-174.6# (not official until Thursday) 22 Oct 15-173.8# (down 1.8 lbs!) 24 Oct 15-172.6# (down 3.0 lbs!) 29 Oct 15-171.8# (official since it''s Thursday... down 3.8 lbs!)
