This roller coaster ride is OVER.

I keep wondering how I ended up almost 300 pounds. For me, I think it was like a switch went off in my head. I got pregnant and struggled to keep my weight down at the beginning of my pregnancy. I struggled to maintain my fitness level. Then it felt like I just started to worry... about... everything I could not control. Which was everything. The food never really turned off. After I had my daughter (18 years ago by the way), it just seemed like food was the one thing I could control but ...
I keep wondering how I ended up almost 300 pounds. For me, I think it was like a switch went off in my head. I got pregnant and struggled to keep my weight down at the beginning of my pregnancy. I struggled to maintain my fitness level. Then it felt like I just started to worry... about... everything I could not control. Which was everything. The food never really turned off. After I had my daughter (18 years ago by the way), it just seemed like food was the one thing I could control but just didn't want to admit I could control it. It as comfort. It was dependable. It was something that would always be there for me when I needed it. Binge eating in secret, feeling so so sick later, vowing not to do it again, beating myself up for losing control in a world I really can't control anyway, and then starting the cycle over.

The truth is, it does not really matter how I got here. The fact that I made camp and decided to stay is the issue. My health - which I once was so super proud about, is not doing as well. I'm older (going to be 40 in March of 2016), I am around my heaviest weight, I have a very physically challenging job (massage therapist), and I would really like to be healthier and stronger so I can enjoy the rest of my life.

So here we go... I don't even want to say that I am starting over, because face it, when you are a heavy person, you never really forget that you're a heavy person, or that you want to be fitter, or get your weight down, or do all those things you need to do to get there... so I am not really starting over. I'm just... here again. To give it my best shot.... My true best shot. No excuses. With a plan.
