I'm on a mission to get myself healthy and I am hoping to get support and feedback along my journey. I have recently reached my highest weight and I am trying to slowly get back to a healthy weight. Not only for me but for my body. I owe it to my body to be healthy and be able to run around and NOT run out of breath! Here goes nothin! :-)

I believe that I've always been an emotional eater. I have been overweight my whole life. I have always struggled with stress in my life (who hasn't) But I never learned how to cope with it and always just ate my problems away. I have, like a lot of people tried so many things, I mostly always stuck to weight watchers. Weight watchers never really taught me much of anything besides to stay in my point range. I did at one point lose 20 pounds, then just stopped. Not sure why but it lead me to where I am today (217.5 pounds and unhappy). I just turned 25 and I don't feel like I have LIVED my life. I have always been back on the sidelines, wishing I could be up front and center of attention(not all the time but every now and then it's fun =) ) All of my friends are healthy and fit. I get so ashamed of myself just looking at pics (I HATE HATE HATE to take pics of myself) and I just want to cry.

I made the choice to take the journey on here, because years back I had made a profile but never really stuck with it. Last week I just got sick of my weight, sick of being unhappy and most of all actually I got sick of being sick. I want to have kids someday and I want to be healthy before I do that. I don't want to be pregnant and no one knows I'm pregnant! I want to also most importantly want to be healthy for my baby and myself while being pregnant. I don't want to have complications because I am overweight.

My cousin and I have been wanting a tattoo all summer just because. Well I decided that I will not be getting that tattoo until I am much happier with my body and I reach goal! That's a lot of motivation there because I really want this tattoo!
