How could I let it get this far?

Sunday, May 15, 2011


I've been away for quite a while. Work and School have consumed my life. I have eaten at more fast food and restaurants then I would like to admit. My second year of grad school shouldn't be too bad. I have decided that I'm going to have to move my goal date another year. I was playing with my caloric intake and then it hit me! How could I let myself get this far? I've always been over weight and have struggled all my life, but to be 380 lbs.! 20 lbs. to 400!! I never thought I would be this heavy. I am so angry with myself! emoticon But I am determined more than ever to shed the weight so that I can healthy for my for me and for my family. Its just hard for me to realize that I let myself get this far. I have decided to come back to Spark People because during my first attempt at weight loss I felt I had so much support from the community and I can't wait to get plugged in again. emoticon

Thats all for my rambling... Starting out kinda slow tomorrow.

Take Care Everyone!

    Congrats on the baby!! I've missed you too!! We should definitely do this together. emoticon I know how discouraging it is. I've been so busy with grad school that I got to the point where I wouldn't cook any meals, just eat out. I gained so much weight though my first year. Hopefully this year I will be able to monitor what I'm eating better and "find time" to work out... LOL!

    Take Care!!!

    Welcome back.

    I know that feeling. My highest weight was 420. I couldn't believe it. It takes time and patience (with yourself and with your body) but it's more than doable.
