I've struggled with my relationship with food, self perception, and self esteem for as long as I can remember. I was a chubby child from the age of about 7 until I hit 16. When I was 16, I developed a serious jaw issue that made me feel sick to me stomach constantly so eating was typically not a priority. As a result, over the summer between my freshman and sophomore year of high school, I lost 30 pounds. By the end of that year, I had lost 20 more.

All of the compliments and attention were amazing and made me feel fantastic but eventually I started obsessing and turned to starvation diets and diet pills to keep my weight down. At the time, I was about 135-140 pounds but I thought I was huge!
Over the next few years I maintained my weight around 145-155. Late in 2010/early 2011, I stopped caring all together. Getting on a scale in April 2011 and seeing the number '165' pop up was the kick in the butt that I needed.

In summer 2011, I started working out and eating right and felt awesome about myself for the first time in a long while. I used SP's resources and went from 165 to 140 in 3 months!

1/2013:After several stops/starts, I am rededicating some energy to weight loss again. I have regained some weight but if I follow through and keep my goals in mind, I will be able to reach my goal weight by May 2013.

I lost weight this week and for some reason i am confident I will keep it off :) I just had blood work done the end of last year because I am already on Thyroid meds. Used to be on BP meds too but haven't been on them for a few months, hoping to stay off them :)
Thanks for the support!

Thank you for the recipe link for the steel cut oats! I will be trying it later this week, it sounds so yummy!

I hope your cat is getting better, it's hard when they are not well.
