11 July 2014

I've been avoiding it for years, thinking about it a lot for months, talking about it some for weeks.... so I guess I should do it.... I just have to lose weight!

In February 2012 I made the first real attempt at weight loss in my life. I was 220 pounds at 18, then I gained slowly in my 20s. When I began my challenge in 2012 I was 272 pounds and I got down to 231 pounds in 3 months by eating salads and walking on a borrowed treadmill. I felt amazing. I loved the way I looked and felt and had more FUN!

After a while, I stopped eating salads and slowly gained a few pounds a month again until I reached 272 again and I plateaued there for quite a while..... and then it got worse. I am now 285 pounds and I can't function anymore. I feel the full impact of the term "morbidly" obese now. I sit at a desk all day and I just don't get enough movement.

I hate it when my mom is right, but as weight seemed to slip off easier when I was in my 20's, now, at almost 34 (later this month) I'm starting to see a short unhealthy life ahead of me if I can't get in control of this problem.

I lack will power and I love food. I've talked to my husband. I've tried a few fad diets this year with poor results. Today I have to start improving my health through weight loss. I got the treadmill back and I walked a half mile today. Its not much, but its a start. I'm hoping I can muster the commitment to exercise at least 3 times a week. I have to build up my tolerance again. I will try to start salads again too.

Hopefully this will be the beginning of something good. I have to try.
