Unlike a lot of people I have encountered while losing weight I have not struggled with my weight my whole life. I was always thin growing up and most of my adult life. In fact I never thought I would struggle with my weight! HA! Was I in for a surprise or what?! I'm not sure what happened to be honest. I started gaining weight around age 26 or 27. I went from 102 lbs. to about 150 lbs!! Then for the next 6 years I was on a roller coaster, going up and down on the scale. By the time I hit 32 I had just given up ever being thin again. I was eating all kinds of junk ALL the time! It was kind of my hobby actually. Sad when I think about it now. I reached an all time high weight of 219 lbs. that year!
What changed then? Well, in March of 2008, I started having health issues. First with my heart then with my stomach. First let me clarify my heart is essentially fine, I have SVT which basically means I have a crazy fast heartbeat on occasion. It's controlled with medication. My stomach on the other hand is fine if I stick to eating only the foods I can now. I have GERD which stinks, but it gets me to eat better! LOL So anywho, I was told if I lost weight that it would get better. I embarked on my weight loss journey right then and there because I hate feeling sick to my stomach. I cut my calories and started walking. I lost over 10 pounds that first month! I was amazed by how easy it was! Now don't get me wrong this whole journey hasn't been easy, I have backslid at times with reverting back to my old eating habits and gaining back 4 pounds at one point. I am proud to say that I am back on track and have lost since March 2008 a total of 74.5 pounds!! I want to be at my goal weight by the end of March 2009 and once I reach my goal I will have lost a total of 84 lbs. Not too shabby, huh?!

    Well, I am happy to hear from you. Things are going okay, my weight spiked back up and I have no idea how or why, with the exception of my knee injury. I am just trying to get back up.
