Determination

I've always been active my whole life. I've been practicing kendo for over 10 years. During high school, I was a swimmer, hurdler, cheerleader, and played soccer. However, I was never that skinny girl. No matter how active I was, I could never have washboard abs. The only time I can manage to have a flat tummy was when I'de "try" to starve myself. (I'm still picking at food =P)
Then, after the process of losing the weight, I would gain twice as much back. My weight has fluctuated ...
I've always been active my whole life. I've been practicing kendo for over 10 years. During high school, I was a swimmer, hurdler, cheerleader, and played soccer. However, I was never that skinny girl. No matter how active I was, I could never have washboard abs. The only time I can manage to have a flat tummy was when I'de "try" to starve myself. (I'm still picking at food =P)
Then, after the process of losing the weight, I would gain twice as much back. My weight has fluctuated 20lbs up and down since I was 14. I was the heaviest in elementary school...about 137ish...and I remember the summer after 8th grade. High School is going to start..and I DID NOT want to be left out, because I'm fat. So I worked out like crazy and ate once a day. I lost about 15lbs. I continued to lose weight through peer pressure to "fit in" during high school.....I had a busy life...worked 2 jobs...finished highschool early and started community college. I had no days off nor no hours to rest...yet I still found myself working out. Soon, my diet consisted of diet coke and pretzels...ONLY. I clapsed...and let it all go..and gained it back... I felt so unhealthy and unstable..then...I met the love of my life. After so many inspirational talks we had...I come to realize..(about time) that diet is 80% what you eat...when I thought "diet" meant..."exercising as much as you can..so you can eat"
Still, I struggle with the choices I make to put in my body. However, I want to lose weight the "right" way and maintain it without rebounding. I'm 5'2 so you can imagine how big I would be at 127.

Hello...I see that you replied to me in the beginning of the month....sorry for the late response. So how are you doing?? I see you are at 127....that's great...I can't wait to get back there again. I read your story on your page and it's SO much like mine..I've never had flat abs, been struggling up and down since high school....20lbs.....in high school I was 137 my heaviest but this last year I hit my biggest EVER. 145lbs. Ugh. I'm back to my 30s now....and my goal is to lose 10 more lbs by the time my sister's wedding comes around. I'm a bridesmaid! SO....I've been trying to work hard at it. I jogged 6 miles today and yesterday. My ultimate goal is to get those flat abs before I turn 30....that gives me 10 months....We'll see!

Hi! You sent me a message back in March. I'm wondering about your progress? We are kind of on the same track. I had lost 20lbs last year and I was looking and feeling great but I stopped working out, stop logging on here and now I've gained back those 20lbs and am weighing in at 140!! YIKES!!!! I haven't been this heavy since high school I think.

Today I feel good..there's no turning back..the 1st of July....only 6 months left in the year to keep my resolution for getting into shape. :) I had subway and am drinking lots of water so hopefully soon I'll be back where I was.

How are you doing?

Wow we are so similar! Just about our weight fluctuations during high school, then meeting that one person that explains to you that it's all in what you eat. I still occasionally seem to think that diet means exercising as much as you can..so you can eat whatever you want later cause it balances out haha so bad
