Jgentle's Journal, 08 November 2012

Throughout this year, I have gone through a very stressful time. I have gone through a divorce and a loss of a child. I am 24 years old. Through these stressful times, it has put a strain on my job which led me to my only comfort in life... carbs. These comfort foods I have linked to has caused me to gain 19 lbs. I then dramatically lost 23 pounds. As of today, I have decided I will not let life's rollercoaster get me down. I will have control over my life and my health. I owe it to my child to be healthy and today, I make a stand. My new goal is to lose 50 pounds by February 8, 2013. I will make it a goal to journal everyday and will gladly accept any encouragement and tips throughout this journey to a new, healthier, slimmer me.

206.0 lb Lost so far: 0 lb.    Still to go: 81.0 lb.    Diet followed poorly.

Hi Jgentle. I was about to skip over this challenge, but something was drawing me in. Now I realize that it was your post. I am sorry for your lose. You are obviously a strong person. I am happy that you have the will and strength to pull through and make a change for the best. I have gone through some struggles this year, and I’ve also made the decision to do what is best. Its still not easy but I’m reaching out and exhausting every avenue to help me along this journey. I hope that we can keep in touch, and become accountability partners or just check in if time permits. Im not sure if Ill join this challenge but I’ll send a friend request. Hope to talk with you soon.
