I guess you could describe my weight loss as a see saw. One minute I'm 300 lbs and then 5-7 months later I'm down to 220 (if I stay on top of it). My story is at the bottom of how it all began but I'm to the point in life where different things matter.

I hate buying plus size clothes....its always so much more expensive. Lane Bryant can only carry so many things. I want variety. I want to enjoy looking at myself on with a bra on and some shorts. Or your sitting on the couch watching the biggest loser thinkn, hmm thats how I look. Well NO MORE!

I want to walk up some stairs and not feel tired. Or not worry about my knees hurting or my ankles swelling. I'm almost 30 and I am sure I have the body of a 60 year old.

My story:

I guess I've always seemed overweight but always struggled to get the lbs off. Very active in high school and at 5'10 weighed 180bs. That was overweight for my town (which I know know is excellent) of where the avg is 130lbs. Ya mental gets to you and you try and try but it never happened. So I basically threw my hands up.

Got into college and through those 4 years gained 60 lbs. A year out of college had a whoppn total of 290 sitting on my bones. Been working to get it off but its always a see-saw effect. Lose 80 lbs, gain 40 lbs, lose 60 lbs, gain 90 lbs. And tha is where I am now. I have went from 220 in May of 07 and Jan 08 I am 290. In 09 I had plans to lose the weight but I got so consumed with school I kept the weight on and even gained another 10 lbs.

So here I am again. Trying to lose weight.

I pray to God I succeed.
All I have to say is...Watch ME do ME!
