From Fat to Flat

That's what I want to do, go from fat to flat. I'm tired of having curves and rolls where there aren't meant to be any.

I'm now over 30 and want to feel what it feels like to be thin before I'm too old to enjoy it! I grew up as a chubby kid, I was an overweight but active teen and since my 20's my weight has been gradually increasing.

I'm now over 30 and want to feel what it feels like to be thin before I'm too old to enjoy it! I grew up as a chubby kid, I was an overweight but active teen and since my 20's my weight has been gradually increasing.

After moving from Canada to the Netherlands to be with my boyfriend (now my husband) I went through a long period of homesickness, culture shock and depression. I spent a lot of time sitting around home eating and playing online video games which didn't help with my weight issues.

I joined this website so I can have a place where I can talk honestly about my weight and the issues I have that stem from it. Where the people I'm talking to will not judge and can understand my feelings.

Fitness Minutes: 105

My Goals:
Short term goal: Get below 250 lbs - DONE! July 2010

Next Short Term Goal: Reach 70 lbs lost

Long term goal: Get to a size where I am comfortable with my weight and no longer have to shop in plus sized clothing. Where someone would look at me and I could look at myself and think "normal". I will know it when I get there.

My Program:
Followed Weight Watchers for a year and lost 50+ lbs. After 4 months of no downward movement I have decided to try a more low carb diet and see if that rids me of some of my physical ailments and cravings.

Personal Information:
35 years old, Canadian (Cape Breton) now living in the Netherlands with my Dutch husband.
Struggled with depression on and off due to living in a foreign country and missing home. Tend to snack too much during the down times.


Other Information:
I love movies, TV, gabbing with girlfriends, chatting on MSN and animals.
I have 5 turtles,1 cat, and 2 dogs.

Welcome to Gastric Bypass Sparklers! You’ll find plenty of support and encouragement here. No question is too stupid to ask, so post away and we’ll all put in our two cents worth. Utilize all the tools SP has to offer. I find tracking my food and exercise most helpful. Good luck on your weight loss journey!

Linda
