One day at a time and I will get there

what can I say it is time to look past where I have been and keep my eyes straight ahead on the new horizon. My life has always had ups and downs to it and my weight has always been a struggle to me.
I first started gaining my weight at a young age when I was in high school. I think it was because of stress with being a teen and trying to make it thru each day that I used food for comfort. But in my senior year there was a breaking point and even today many years later I feel as if it ...

I first started gaining my weight at a young age when I was in high school. I think it was because of stress with being a teen and trying to make it thru each day that I used food for comfort. But in my senior year there was a breaking point and even today many years later I feel as if it just happen. In two days my life turned upside down and it was horrible for me. First thing that had happen was in the morning I was on laying on the floor begging for my size 26 jeans to zip up and could not believe this was were I was. That morning my friend and I were joking around and he had told me that he wished I looked better next to him because he would of asked me to the prom. It hurt but I understood he want his prom pictures to look just so and that was a price for my weight, besides we were just friends he know after he said it how it sounded and try to say he didn't mean it that way but it did hurt.Later that day in gym was very depressing day my teacher made me feel so bad I ended up running out of class and trying to quite school. We had to run an obstacle coarse in what was called Project adventure. It was clubbing nets going across a rope bridge and sliding down the zip line. Even though I was so heavy I was always able to keep up with the other kids. I think the fact that I was at an agriculture school so I think the physical work plus working after school gave me the ability to be fit but heavy to get what ever I needed to to get done. Well that day on the coarse was the best day I ever had I even broke the school record for finishing times for the girls. When we got back to the gym that day instead of congrad, from my teacher (like all the kids were doing) he sat the whole class down and started yelling at them for how they had preformed and he could not understand why the Fattest kid in the class could break the record and they were working like snails. Needless to say I was mortified by what he was saying I started crying and ran out. I was quiet for the rest of the day I could not stand being there a friend of mine got permission to take me home and let the headmaster know what had happen many other students also had stood up for me after I left which I found out later which did make me feel a bit better. That day I went home and did not come out of my room I just couldn't face anybody else. The next day the head master had called a special meeting and had the teacher apologist to me in front of the student body I know she did it to try and help but to me it was just calling more attention to the problem. At snack time a girlfriend of mine tried to help too she had brought us in apples to have instead of the normal cookies. I know god love she was trying to help but at the time with Teenage hormonal going it felt like another slap in the face. While we were talking I realized she was right that if I wanted to change the way people saw me I could do it I just needed to try. That afternoon I started my first diet and it would not be my last. By the time I had grad. I was down to a size 18 which felt great then that summer I kept going down until I was a size 7/8. Which I was able to maintain until I was 28. I had to go on some meds that can cause weight gain and found it hard to stabilize my weight.I went up about 80 lbs again but in Nov 06 my meds had changed and even thought I could not ever lose the weight again I keep eating the way I normally did. To my amazement it worked and it took me a bit of time but by Dec 07 I was down 60lbs. Since then I have taken off another 15 and now working on the last 20 lbs which is coming off faster then I thought it would but at a healthy speed. How much I think I want to take off might change I have been rethinking that right now but to me it is not the pounds that matter anymore but the inches. I know I have away to go because I need to tone up now and with being in my late thirty's now I am finding it harder to do. I may never been very thin is I once was but I am living each day looking forward to the next knowing that I am living a healthier Life style then I have in the past.
What can I say about me then my struggle and finally learning the right way to lose the weight. As of Feb. 23 this year I have been with a wonderful man for 13 years. I have no children yet at least with two legs that is all of mine have four..lol

I read your reply on the "diet pills" thread and thought I should just stop in and say hi :)
I (ignorantly) wasn't considering the fact that some people do have underlying medical issues, like yourself, and that might make something like alli a necessity. I'm glad that you don't think you'll be on them forever as well. In general I don't think the average person needs something like Alli, but after reading your post, I'm sure there is a percentage of the population who does.

Have a great weekend!
