Here's to a Great 2013

After gaining a bunch of weight over two short years and keeping it on, I lost 30 pounds in 2010. After life got in the way, I gained it back and then some. Now I am taking control of my health/weight and getting into shape.

Growing up, I was chubby until about 9th grade. After a growth spurt, I was in good shape, but unfortunately after some stressful situations in high school, I developed an eating disorder. At 5' 9", I got down to 117 lbs. Certainly not healthy or attractive. ...

Growing up, I was chubby until about 9th grade. After a growth spurt, I was in good shape, but unfortunately after some stressful situations in high school, I developed an eating disorder. At 5' 9", I got down to 117 lbs. Certainly not healthy or attractive.

Once I got to college, I went up to a healthier weight range of around 130-135. There I remained, happily, until late 2006, when I gradually started gaining. I didn't really notice how much I had put on (I didn't own a scale) until I weighed myself at my parents' house. I had reached 170 lbs! At the time, I remember thinking I didn't want to get any closer to 200 lbs.

Even while attempting to eat healthy meals and going to the gym, the weight kept coming. I even went to the doctor, hoping they could find something "wrong" with me and fix it all.

I joined SparkPeople last January and lost 30 lbs by early June. I was so proud and happy with myself! Then we had a bunch of crap happen that made the weight loss not such a priority, and I gained it back plus more. Then I reached my highest weight of 265 before getting back on track.

I still don't know what caused me to gain the weight initially. But my motivation is strong--once I reach a healthy weight, my husband and I are going to start trying for a baby. Here's to a great year!

My main reasons for getting fit are:

1) I want to have a healthy baby and pregnancy in the future

2) I want to love the way I look and be able to fit into the piles of skinny clothes I have

3) I want to like it when people look at me. I used to feel cocky when I walked into a room--right now I want to blend into the background.

4) I want to be strong. Not in the mental/emotional sense--I already have that. No, I mean in the physical, kick-ass sense. I want to beat people at arm-wrestling and be able to do real push-ups and pull-ups.

7) I want to fit back into my snow pants so my husband can re-teach me how to snowboard :)

Congratulations on the incredible weight loss. You're really kicking butt. We share the same goal. I want to lose the weight to have a health pregnancy. I'm hoping to get there for this time next year. I can't wait!
