I just wanna dance!

So I joined a year ago and obviously have not been keeping up. So here is my story.

I have always had weight issues. I started to blow up when I hit pubery, I grew 6 inches and gain 60#- yikes! I lost some in high school and college and was doing really well. I was a nice size 10, about 165# on my 5'8 frame, was working out, and still thought I was huge.

Then I got huge. Between a stressful senior year at college, hurricane Katrina, and a grueling hospital internship ...
So I joined a year ago and obviously have not been keeping up. So here is my story.

I have always had weight issues. I started to blow up when I hit pubery, I grew 6 inches and gain 60#- yikes! I lost some in high school and college and was doing really well. I was a nice size 10, about 165# on my 5'8 frame, was working out, and still thought I was huge.

Then I got huge. Between a stressful senior year at college, hurricane Katrina, and a grueling hospital internship to become a Dietitian I gained..... 70#!!!!!! Over two years I climbed without being able to stop what was happening. I was a mess and really tired, more tired than normal. Turned out I had been suffering from hypothyroidism, I was diagnosed last June. Once on medication the weight gain stopped, whew. Now I am at my correct dosage and the foggy head has cleared, I can sleep, and I have enough energy to workout! YAY!

Now I am working on the weight that doesn't want to leave and proving that just because I'm fat doesn't mean I am a bad Dietitian or a bad example.
