I have struggled with my weight pretty much for my entire life. I have always considered myself as the "fat friend" and that I just had to deal with it. I love sweets and love carbs, and any "diet" that I was on usually failed because I restricted myself.
I tried Weight Watchers earlier this year, but gave up after 5 months and only losing 17 lbs. I wanted to do something about it. I usually do a yo-yo diet and mess my body up further.
Two years ago, I lost 42 lbs in 7 weeks with Take Shape For Life. It was right before my sister got married and I loved it. It worked. It was the only program that I found myself becoming better and not being overwhelmed! I am at it again and this time, I'll keep going. I started this blog as a sounding board to help me sort my thoughts and share my feelings. I am a Health Coach now, so I figured that I should probably BE healthy if I am to help others
Here's what I looked like on day one; 10/14/09.
