I was an obese child that played a large part in the eating disorder that has dominated a large part of my life. I was actively bulimic for several years, involved in inpatient treatment, and continue to battle the mentality that comes with it. <BR> Learning to be healthy and lose/maintain weight with an... Sat, 19 Jan 2013 14:29:11 EST So I tried on my wedding dress....and other catchings up I know I’ve been gone a long time. I’m a full time graduate social work student and it was finals time.

Tue, 16 Nov 2010 11:54:39 EST Confessions of a Confessions of a Pretty Plus <BR> <BR> When I was a kid I was obese. That is not an exaggeration, it’s a fact. It’s a scientific calculation based not only on BMI that was well over 30 at 10 years old but was also proven by the years of misery and torment that came from being an obese kid back when being the fat kid wasn’t cool. <BR> I don’t mean that to sound like its cool now, but misery loves company. When I see children now I notice there are always several visibly overweight children in... Mon, 15 Nov 2010 13:23:36 EST Biggest Loser Power Sculp Results and 4 month totals! So because I am a numbers girl I wanted to post some really surprising numbers. I stopped using the 30 day shred and took a fwe weeks to do some other toning and regular eliptical work while I waited for the Power Scult DVD to come in. I felt stronger after doing the Shred with good results but my butt/hips/thighs wern't really showing a ton of a change and I didn't want to loose strength going to something easier. So i got my DVD and went straight to doing all 3 levels. WOW is level 3 intens... Thu, 28 Oct 2010 12:43:41 EST My postpartum journey. Almost there! Before and After Pics. ACK! So I didn't really think i'd have it in me to post the before pic but I figure I might as well since i see so many others doing it. <BR> <BR> After I lost 65lb with sparkpeople in 2008 I gained 20lb when I failed to maintain, went back to work, had a miscarriage and quit smoking. I just couldn't get back into the habit. I was tired. I was depressed. It was back and forth with the smoking. I was in totally denial of how much I'd gained back. Almost all my work clothes were size 4 or 6 because... Sat, 16 Oct 2010 14:33:16 EST Size 4 OMG, I can't believe I get to type that! Now i wish i'd taken before pictures but i was so upset about being so big i refused to let anyone take a picture! <BR> Anyway, I went to the store last night because my pants kept falling and the zipper was starting to unzip randomly. I didn't think i could make it a size smaller yet b/c i really havn't lost much in a while, i got stuck at 150 for 6 weeks and started more of a maintenace than loss, plus i quit smoking again so i didn't expect to loos...
