Once upon a time my depression led me to fall off the wagon and I gained a bunch of weight...AGAIN. I have always been very short so the weight became very noticeable. Members of my family would say that I was "fluffy", this hurt me and made me feel even worse about myself. I gained all the weight from emotional eating and binging. Whenever I was feeling bored/depressed I'd go to the corner store and get a whole bunch of candy and chocolate then eat it ALL!

BUT NOW...It's time for me to get back into shape again, lose that icky weight I fit for summer!

I want to be fit and active, continue to eat healthy so I can lead a healthy, happy and full-filling life!

My goal is to feel healthy, confident and strong!

*I want to lose the weight I gained.

*I want to have more energy to do the things I love.

*I want to feel STRONG and fit!

*I want to feel good about myself.

    No problem - thanks for adding me back! You actually caught me at a good point... I've been having difficulty for several months now but for the past week I've started counting calories again and have been doing well. Time to start adding exercise back because I also haven't done that in a while. Hoping to use The Biggest Loser show (just started yesterday!) as motivation... how are you doing?
