I started gaining weight when I was about 10 I think. At least that's the firt time I remember getting teased for being chubby. Some of the boys in my class started calling me "Big J." From there I just kept gaining. In December 2009 I joined WW, weighing in at my highest ever 398.8#. I was devestated when I saw that number. I lost 30# over the next three months. Then I quit WW, I was tired of paying for something that I already knew. I knew what to day. I'd spent the last 15 years reading and trying everything to lose weight. I knew what to do, what to eat and not eat. I just never committed to it. Quitting WW was another example of me not finishing something, giving up on me. I bounced around between 368-378 for the next 10 months or so; then Jan 2011, I rejoined the gym but still wasn't committing to eating well. In Feb, I decided I was tired of putting out the effort at the gym and then ruining any benefit with poor eating choices. So that's where I am now... I'm at the very beginning of this journey but I feel like I've finally decided I'm worth it all.
