Hello I am a 29 year old recently married bride. I've been active with sparkpeople for 9 months now and never really wrote an introduction. I don't know why. Maybe because part of me never really believed I would ever be here. I have always been a slender active young person and never had a weight problem. (See my favorite picture at age 19.) In fact guys used to tell me I need to gain weight.
But I never got too heavy into good nutrition and I started in the working world and became less active. I little by little had that creeping weight come on to me that I used to talk about what happened with other people.
And I made all kinds of excuses. It's because I'm now 25. It's because of my allergies and asthma. All the while my self-esteem getting lower and me not liking my body.
Finally when my man asked me to marry him and I was 156-160 lbs I decided to admit the truth and do something about it. I decided to stop being lazy. I researched a work-out class I woudl like and she recommended this site and I love it!
I no longer feel like my body is my enemy. I feel much more in control and educated. I feel like I will reach my goals and more positive about myself.
And I love it!
