This is my weight loss journey. I lost a considerable amount of weight only to gain back double of what I had lost, and now I'm on a mission to be thin again.
A little history:
When I first started my weight loss in 2009 I weighed 169 lbs, and it took me about 6 months to get down to 144 lbs, and let me tell you I was so excited. I tend to look less than I weigh so I looked around 135. I plateaued there for about a year I would say, and I didn't have a strict diet or anything while I was maintaining, I just rarely ate fast food and I walked a lot. Then I decided I wanted to trim off some more in time for summer so I dropped from 144 to 135 in about two weeks, in which I did 30 minutes on the eliptical everyday at the gym and didn't eat a whole lot, just small amounts of very healthy foods. I stayed at that weight for about 6 months, then a bunch of drinking, partying, and an issue in my personal life later, I sky rocketed to 180 in a matter of about 8 months, and just kept gaining until now. I'm at the point where this weight gain is just ridiculous and I'm sick of looking at myself in the mirror. I gained so quick where there were days where I didn't even recognize myself in pictures etc, which is just scary. And because I put on the weight so quickly, I have some pretty nice stretch marks, none of which are visible to other than me, but still I see them and they make me angry at myself. Thank goodness for aloe and coco-butter though, I slap that stuff on religiously.
Anyway, this is my journey of weight loss (hopefully for the last time), and please feel free to message me ANY questions you have, or if you just need someone to talk to, even you anon-ers!
