My background. Hello to all my name is Ashley but everyone normally calls me Ash. I have been "chubby" since coming out from the womb..lol literally 10 pounder baby. I can only remember a short period in my life when I was considered small and the only reason to that was because I was in an environment that ate healthy, junk food was voided, and we had to be sleep very early. Once leaving there I quickly picked up weight. Every year after that I gained more and more never realizing that I was getting bigger and bigger.

I never had a bf or had any fun while in H.S. till my Senior year. Didn't notice that my weight was a major reason to my unhappiness because no one made it an issue. I never got talked about in person. I had friends. My step mom made me feel extremely special by my weight by informing me that she would always love me no matter how big I got. It wasn't till I was with my first bf did I realize how cruel people can be and how big I had let myself get. After the breakup and a Free weeks worth USA Fitness membership I was on my way to fitness success but not just yet. Two or three years pass with no major weight loss. I was bound to go through another membership with the YMCA, to trying diet pills, and going on the Atkins diet. It wasn't until I was in a rocky relationship did I realize that I need to do something for myself. This would be me time. Me focusing on myself and cutting out the negativity in my life which at the time was my ex bf.

So in June 2008 I joined Spark people and it changed my life. I lost over 60lbs from June 2008 to Jan 2009 got rid of the unnecessary drama. Found love elsewhere and surprisingly got pregnant gained all my weight back and some but produced a very healthy, handsome young baby boy. Now I'm back and this time I'm not gonna stop till I reach my goal. Im in it to win it. I will be fit !!! Because GOD is on my side and I can do all things through CHRIST who strengthens me.

WOW, your introduction was very encouraging! I am so excited to be on this journey with you. I have dieted my WHOLE life. I also don't remember a time that I would ever consider myself thin, or healthy. My parents have never told me I needed to loose weight, although my brothers were cruel like all brothers are. I have always had skinny friends, and been the heavy one, but that is what it is. I have yoyo'd tried every fad diet, diet pills, HCG drops, and actually found the best results from Weight Watchers. I became a believer. I lost about 85 pounds and was for a day at my goal weight.
In the last three years I have had over 25 surgeries and procedures to find out why, and cure abdominal cramping that I have had for over six years. All the results come back negative, which I suppose I should be happy about. Yet I'm still in pain.
I had a hysterectomy in 2009, In April 2010, I slipped at a pool and shattered my knee cap, the weight crept back up, and before I knew it, I was about 10 pounds OVER my highest weight. So laying in bed last year, I decided 2011 was going to be my year, I was going to take back my life, and my health.
I had the lap band placed in April 2011, not because I can't lose weight, but because I am TIRED of ups and downs, and more ups. So I made a drastic change and had this surgery. I am down over 50 pounds now since the surgery, all while recovering from more procedures, and sadly ANOTHER broken knee cap. (different leg).
I was referred to SparkPeople a little over a month ago, and am SO happy to be here. So happy to see others understand what it is like to be in my shoes. I am encouraged by others stories, good and bad, learn from others lessons, and occasionally I just blog to get my emotions on paper, and not in my mouth.
I look forward to joining you on your journey as I am also on mine. Happy Wednesday!
