Seal Beach on Valentine's Day 2010 at 138 lbs
Corona Del Mar Beach.. 01/10/09 at about 162 lbs
Here I weighed approx 204 lbs and was in Guys and Dolls. This was taken April 2006.
I've been waiting around to lose weight... "After my birthday..." "After my Vacation..." "After the new year.." But there's no time like NOW =)
I started January 5th 2009 at 162lbs but I am restarting at 146lbs on June 15th 2011.
I have always struggled with my weight. As a dancer and baton twirler, when I was younger, I was often told that I was overweight from my coaches and my mother. Even I knew that I did not look like the other girls I was performing with, but as I look back I was not HUGE by any means. So I ended up sneaking food a lot, a habit that I still have sometimes and kept gaining. I often felt depressed and alone...
In high school I practically starved myself for a whole summer, exercised compulsively, lost about 20 lbs, weighed 127 lbs and got great compliments. However, that didn't last long and I gained the weight back.
After I graduated high school I got into my first relationship. I gained about 40 lbs and picked up his eating habits, more fast food etc. Since I was out of school I didn't exercise as much, I used to be a cheerleader, so the weight came on fast. We broke up and WOW I lost the weight. Later, in another relationship I gained 60 lbs and reached my highest weight of 204 lbs! We broke up and I lost most of the weight about two years ago...
I'm in a new relationship with a fabulous man that I love so much, we have been together for 4 years now. He helps me to realize that my health is a priority! And I have become much more independent as well... =)
In my last relationships I forgot about myself and let myself go putting all my energy into the other person. This time I've realized that it is just as much about me as it is about him.
So here I am and I'm ready to lose those last pesky 16 lbs... after losing 58 lbs, I know I can lose these last 10! I really want to work on toning my body! =)
TO LOOK GOOD NAKED...
TO FEEL GOOD, HEALTHY, ENERGETIC!
Next goal is to lose 16 pounds by August 15th!
I WANT TO TONE UP! REALLY ENJOY EXERCISE! I miss it!!
To really embrace myself....
I eat between 1200-1500 calories per day.
I allow myself to splurge a little on the weekends...
I'm 28 from Southern California. If you want to talk, send me a message!
I graduated from the University of California, Irvine. And received my teaching credential from CSUSB, I just finished my 1st year of teaching and hopefully will have a contract for the next school year.

I always say, telling your story will help another. Thank you for your comment on my page. You're doing great and by talking about your struggle with bulimia you have helped someone else. Keep up the great work!

Ran across your page and thought I would leave you a comment! Your intro sounds a LOT like myself. I've never dealt with bulimia, however, but I thought about it - and can only imagine how much more difficult that has made your journey. I have bookmarked your page to come back to whenever I need inspiration : ) You're a beautiful person, and your overall attitude is amazing!! KUDOS! And best of luck to you : )

hey! i'm sure you'll be fine when you go visit your brother's. i went to my sister's for about a week last week and wasn't as strict as i usually am.. but i guess that my body enjoyed the break, because i still managed to lose 2.6 lbs. over the week! lol i was so hapy when i saw that on the scale.
lately i've been kind of slacking it... guess i'm focusing more on spending time with family/friends cause i'll be moving to chicago in a couple of months... craziness! theres definatly been a couple days where i went out of my calorie range... but oh well.
oh yes.. you should check your sparkmail.. i hit you up a couple days ago. oh, and.. you and your bf make a very cute couple as well :)
