6/8/2010-I have realized I have gained 20lbs in the last three years. Not a trend I wish to continue! So its back to what I know works.. weight watchers with a little bit of food combining.

I wasn't overweight as a child, well not until I hit puberty. Then it all went pear shaped (literally). There's no mystery. I am overweight because I ate too much and wasn't active. I remember hoarding food, I would go downstairs to the kitchen while everyone was watching TV and gather candy and take it upstairs and store it in my drawer. To this day I don't know why I did it.

I went through various stages of food addiction/disorders. I would go days without eating and then binge. I once tried to purge but it didn't work (thank goodness!). I wasn't happy with the way that I looked but didn't really try seriously losing weight until the end of high school.

The summer after high school I signed up for an Outward Bound sailing course and had to start walk/running to get into shape for it. That sort of started a health kick and that summer before college I lost 30lbs.

Since then my weight has been within the same 10-20lb range up and down. I have never gotten very far away from exercising but its yet to become a natural thing for me. I'm currently 15lbs heavier than I want to be and have been for about two years now.

I'm 30 now and its not getting any easier but I'm determined.

    Thanks so much for your comment on my blog. I guess some people are just special. It amazes me how folks just don't get 'it.' The quick fixes are short-term, temporary, aka. just don't work! With this guy, it shows in his appearance and workout what a moron he is - so I decided it's best not to say anything... Good luck on your journey and keep posting your progress...
