After the birth of my daughter I lost a whopping 200 pounds
(over several years with some ups and downs - I have Binge Eating Disorder, so it's a huge challenge eating normally for me!).
I won't lie, even with that much weight lost I was still overweight, but I felt incredible, I looked great and though I would have liked to drop the remaining pounds I needed to, life was drastically better than it had been. I had my life back!
I managed to keep my weight between 212-215 pounds for 6 years! That is until 2 years ago when I quit smoking (for good this time) and ended an unhappy relationship.
My weight went crazy over that long canadian winter and I ended up at 298 pounds before being terrified of hitting 300 again, noticing the pain in my body and kicking my butt out of that depressive non stop binge eating mode.
I started eating incredibly healthy food and exercising. A lot!
I was jogging on average 2 hours a day, and swimming as well.
That might sound like a great idea, and I did lose 60 pounds in a fairly short time period but I ended up severely damaging my knees and feet. (Heavy people should NOT jog)
Unable to get my "runners high" I fell into another bout of depression and put on 15 pounds instead of losing what I needed to.
I maintained that weight for a little bit, until about last year when I began a new relationship with a really heavy guy, who loves to cook and went on birth control.
Between the birth control, and the constant sugary treats he loves to consume around me combined with a completely sedentary lifestyle I have managed to find myself at 320 pounds of absolutely self esteem crushing fat.
This was not a good winter for me.
several weeks ago I had ENOUGH.
I told him to keep his pop and candy out of my house, and I started purchasing ONLY the healthy vegetables and fruits I feel my healthiest eating.
I've since lost 11 pounds and I am NOT stopping until I am at the very least under 200 pounds and able to walk around without immense pain in my feet knees and back.
I know I need the daily support of a forum, and the diet blog here on fit day to keep me accountable so here I am!
I know HOW to do this, I just have to find the strength - again.
