My whole life I have battled with my weight. As a teenager or young adult, I had never owned, or worn a bikini or a miniskirt. I developed depression from being overweight, developed serious medical conditions, along with everyday stresses of life, I found comfort in food. After many years of this battle, I finally began my journey in July of 2007. I knew I needed to change, and it all had to start with me from the inside out. To find myself, and my path in life as a woman, & mother, I had to break free from my chains. I was being held prisoner by my obesity. So, I began my weight loss at a weight of 260lbs in July of 2007. I set goals, and my first goal was to lose 30lbs by my birthday only 4 months away. Instead, I lost 50lbs in 4 months! Then I decided for a much larger goal. I wished to lose 100lbs by my Anniversary date of July '08. Instead, one month shy of my Anniversary date, I lost 100lbs. Each goal, I exceeded my own expectations. And it didn't stop there! Many asked how I did it. I didn't have surgery, or order weight loss meals. I didn't hire a trainer or nutritionist. But, took MY life into my OWN hands and designed my own diet, workouts and supplements. My low carb diet is now a lifestyle for me. I dont think I will ever go back to my ways of old ways of eating again. As of December 2009, I've lost 125 pounds! I'm still working on my goal, and I have another 20lbs to go!
Why I Love it
Seeing the changes to my body. seeing the muscles develop and pop out, and seeing myself go from a size 24 to a size 8 in less than a year! I love the opportunity now to do exercises and things that I was never able to do while I was overweight!
