Over a year ago, I injured my feet in Zumba class and couldn't do my regular exercise. I was depressed and my food slipped as well. Then I gave up my efforts. I rapidly began to gain the weight back.
Now it is March 2015, I am back to do this again and keep it off for good. My starting weight this time was 286 lbs. I am on my fourth day and have lost 6 lbs. Mostly water weight but, a good start.
This journey is about putting myself first. I am worth it!
