Day 1: How did I get here

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Yesterday I joined, Today I started.
How did I get to 257 lbs? Stress of college and a psycho roommate, losing two grandparents in a year, my dad having a stroke, and just life. I ended up with severe depression. and 257pounds.
How many times have I already started this journey. I was so happy last time when I hit 210. Then somehow I ballooned up. It all has to be down now. I graduate next may with my bachelor's in public relations. I need to look good for me especially when I go out to do job interviews.
I need to do it for my boyfriend. He loves me more then anything. I owe it to him to be healthy and fit. I want for him to be able to sweep me up in his arms.
I need to do it for my family. I already took care of my dad once. But as my parents age they are going to need more help. I shouldn't be worrying about my own health but I should be there for them.
So here I am, 20 already down to 247.2. I have a wedding in september that I am maid of honor. I have my cousins wedding in october. Then may is graduation. Hopefully by Hune 2014 I reach my goal. December 2014 is my latest the gives me 12-18 months. I can lose the remaining 104 lbs. I already lost 10. I can lose more.

    You can do this! Hang in there -- when you get discouraged or feel progress is too slow, or maybe even want to celebrate something that might seem silly to anyone who hasn't battled weight issues be sure to post on Spark. We're all on the same journey. Good luck -- and again, you can do this!
