When I started my journey in March of 2010 I was at my heaviest and most depressed. At that time I was in size 20 jeans, I had started to think I would always be that heavy, but then I decided to change my lifestyle. Now over two years later, I'm so happy I'm long gone from that size and the other day I went jean shopping (which I dread) and I tried on a size 9! I repeat size 9! I've never been able to fit into that, other than when I was a child and was having to wear adult women's clothing, but now I can wear those and I look great!
Thinking about how much my waste has changed got me thinking about how different I really am from that little shy, depressed, and lonely girl that I was a few years ago. A lot has changed for me since I decided to lose weight and get healthy. I got braces, then got them off and have a very purdy smile now. I also had a spinal fusion that corrected my posture last year, and now I have a boyfriend (my first). The weight loss that I have achieved has given me so much confidence and motivation and I just hope that I can share that with the people around me and the people of Sparkpeople. If I can do this, anyone can!
