I know that being thin doesn't make you happy. But feeling comfortable in your own skin does. And that's what I miss. My husband tells me I'm beautiful and perfect in every way. I just want to feel that way myself.

I'm tired of not being able to breathe well after walking down the street, not having energy to play with my daughter, not being able to enjoy activities that I love. My own self consciousness hinders everything in my life.

My story-
After losing 70 lbs in 2008/2009, (some of it the right way and some of it NOT the right way...) I just forgot everything I learned here on SP. I started partying and drinking and eating all the time and of course I picked up just about all of my weight back over the course of about 2 years. But I'm not mad about it anymore, I'm just focused on doing it the right way this time and developing a true 'lifestyle change' so I can stay healthy and thin forever.

I'm back with a vengeance, and ready to achieve everything I want.
