Owning Myself

Hiya! My name is Gwen. I quit smoking on May 30th of 2008. That and starting to live a party lifestyle (read: crazy amount of alcohol consumption) combined to pack on the pounds.
I am 6' tall, and as a teenager I was very thin. When I graduated high school, I did nothing as far as exercise was concerned, and I started to gain a little weight. It really is not hard for me to lose ten pounds, and keep it off once I lose it, I just didn't realize how much weight I gained ...
Hiya! My name is Gwen. I quit smoking on May 30th of 2008. That and starting to live a party lifestyle (read: crazy amount of alcohol consumption) combined to pack on the pounds.
I am 6' tall, and as a teenager I was very thin. When I graduated high school, I did nothing as far as exercise was concerned, and I started to gain a little weight. It really is not hard for me to lose ten pounds, and keep it off once I lose it, I just didn't realize how much weight I gained this time because I started putting on strechier clothes, then the next thing I knew, I tried to put on my favorite something-or-other, and it wouldn't fit. At my heaviest I weighed in at 236 - the heaviest I have ever been in my entire life. I used SP once before,and lost 20 pounds after I was in a major car wreck ; then my living situation changed, and I was unable to be active on the site, and then...
My goal is to be happy with myself again ~ to be my normal self-confident Gwen. It is amazing what extra pounds will do to a person's self esteem. I don't want to be a size 2; I know I am too tall and my bones are too large for that to look anywhere near sexy, but a size 10 on my frame looks pretty darn good - to me anyway, and my opinion of myself is the only one that matters!
