I've just turned 27 and have decided to take an active role in my own health finally : ) When I was a little kid, I was skinny and lanky and active.. as I got into high school I started to pack on the pounds a bit more... Then in college, miracle of miracles- I lost my freshman 15, rather than gained...In my second year I was smaller and more fit than I'd ever been (155 lbs... on my frame that's about a size 8 which I was actually quite happy with) - I was a musical Theatre major, and did a lot of dancing!! Then I moved to North Carolina (From Wyoming) and everything fell out of whack. I stopped dancing, my social life became much more sedentary, and I started to gain weight.
I didn't really notice until one day, while in a Biology lab of all things, while doing some silly little lab on BMI we were required to weigh ourselves. I hadn't weighed myself in about 2 years at that point and I'd gone up to 230 lbs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!... I'd gained over 80 lbs in I think it was 3 years total? I was SHOCKED. Since that point I have been trying unsuccessfully to lose that weight, and actually ended up gaining 20 more lbs to put me at a whopping 250 lbs-- I think that number has finally given me the motivation to end this growth spurt and start getting healthy. Add to that the fact that my mother is showing symptoms of diabetes--- considering that runs in the female side of my family, I think it's best to nip this in the bud now, while I'm still young.
I was married to a Wonderful man last April and I hope to have children soon, which is another motivation heaped on top of the others. I don't want to gain too much while pregnant, and I want to be in shape to keep up with my kids- I want to set a good example for my children so many some day they won't be caught in the same place I am now!
