I was never a thin girl by any stretch. I started smoking at 14, the too cool for health phase. In university I started partying a lot with my friends and pretty much ate everything I wanted as I wanted to. Oh so much alcohol. My exercise mantra was “I do not run unless being chased". I gained my weight all through university, and by the time I graduated I was somewhere around 243 lbs at 5'3 - and 22 years old. I decided to take on all my vices and get on with it already.
I moved to Ireland for a new job, quit smoking, and started cycling to and from work. This was no small feat on Irish hills, carrying around an extra 100+lbs. I am not too proud to admit I walked that damn bike up hills on more than one occasion.
When I moved back to Canada in 2009, I was 187 lbs. I joined Herbal Magic and decided to get this weight off once and for all. I did not take their supplements - way too much money and I refuse to be dependent on pills to get over hurdles, I just stuck to their good eating rules. I lost another 60 lbs and 55 inches off my body. I completed my first 5km in October 2009 and have run it every year since! I train for the 10km but these flat feet have their boundaries!
I have kept the weight off for 3 almost 4 years now, but I still fluctuate about 20 lbs (130-150). They are not kidding when they say maintenance is hard.
I am a happily married lady now, and I met my husband at my heaviest weight, which always makes me smile. My goal now is to balance out so I don’t fluctuate quite so much. I would like to get down to 125 but am not stuck on a number. I simply want to be in a healthy weight range for my height and age, and actually enjoy my body! I am done being in sweaters in the middle of summer or feeling I need to hide food. Next year its bikini village! Extra skin or not, I don’t care! It’s my turn.
