Update: My kiddos are now 9 and 4!! I've changed so much since this last bio was done. I am a much stronger person now by just accepting myself for who I am .I also wasn't focused so much on the number on the scale this time around. It is just a bonus of taking care of myself. I got to the root of my problems, like depression and alcohol abuse which led to not caring about what I ate. I am almost sober for a year now!! Also, I'm down over 50 lbs. This has been a great year of truly finding my way. I am very proud of myself ;)
I am happily married and have a beautiful 5yr. old daughter and 16 month old son. I lost 40 lbs from October 07~April 08.I got down to my lowest weight of my life (139). My highest weight was when I was 18....I got up to 197 lbs and eventually lost weight and got down to 153 when I was 21. Then thru my 20's I got up to 180 something again and back down to 148.....I'm tired of going from fat to thin over and over. I want to stay healthy and never give up on myself again.
I'm tired of this cycle of getting fit and then being negative and using food to medicate myself.I also find when I get skinny ...I want my "security blanket " back. I think I am over the security blanket part now.I also have learned that others will react and treat you differently when you lose a lot of weight.Dealing with this can throw you a curve ball,so beware.People may not even know how negative of a force they are. Also others will be so positive and happy for you .These are the people you need to surround yourself with.Support is key to success.
It's so easy to fall back into old habits.
I think I've learned my lesson now.
....this time I'm going to stay healthy :)
I am going to beat the battle of the "binge". I have always used food for comfort or when I was stressed. I am going to break that cycle and never use junk food as a drug again.
