I'm 28 years old, in a relationship, and I'm getting ready to move across the country in August.
I have been overweight almost my entire life (since I was 5), I really don't know what it's like to be in the weight range that I'm supposed to be for my age. I've had 'such a pretty face' for so long, that I don't know what it would be like for someone to compliment something else. My boyfriend does say I'm beautiful and compliments me all the time and I am self assured enough that while I may not agree with him, I do believe that he believes what he says 100%.
I have been told my entire life that I will have twins, at least, when I get pregnant, and I've also been told that at my weight it would be extremely unhealthy for both me and my baby. Since that is something that I want to do within the next several years, it's time to do something about it.
I also want to get married in the next few years, and I don't want to look back the photos of my big day and wish that I was lighter, thinner, or in a different dress - my dream dress will unfortunately not look right on my body that I have now. I also want to be able to dance the night away with my new husband, however unless we are slow dancing all night long, that's also something that I won't be able to do with my current body.
Lastly, I want to be HEALTHY! I want to go for runs when the weather is beautiful, hop in a canoe and explore lakes, get into a raft and explore the rapids. I want to go rock climbing and hiking and camping. I want to ride a bike, climb stairs, and eat a friggin cupcake without thinking that someone else is looking at me saying 'wonder how many of those she's had today'.
So, because of all of the above, and more, I'm here, ready, finally to do something about it all.
