I have battle my weight all my life. My first diet was at the age of 7 with WW. Other diets followed, many not so healthy. Then I got sick of being the big happy jolly girl and just wanted to be normal.
So at the age of 19 I decided to have Gastric Bypass Surgery. I was thinking that this could change me, and it did. I lost the weight and was happily down to 185. I felt awesome at this weight. I looked skinny! I kept it off for 6 years, then life came and bit me in the butt. I had to move back in with my parents due to the economy and have lived with them for three years. My weight has gone back up to 286.
One day I was reading a friend's post on F.B. and she had lost 75 pounds. I was proud for her due to her being a heavy gal too. But it also made me think that if she could do it, being a bit younger then me, then why can't I.
This is how it begins again. Losing weight not because my parents want me to, or wanting to fit into a dress, or meet a guy. I am doing it for me this time. I will suceed in my efforts not because I am being told to, but because I want to!!!!!!!!!!!!!
