I am 23yrs old and from South Louisiana, home of cajun cooking! All my life I have pretty much struggled with my weight. UP then Down, my weight has never stayed the same.
I met my fiance in the beginning of 2006 weighing roughly around 155lbs. Being 5’4, 155lbs is a little on the overweight side.
Well needless to say I fell head over heals for my now fiance and they say when you are happy you forget about taking care of yourself, which I totally did. I had ALWAYS told myself that I would NEVER let myself get to 200lbs. I never got on the scale, scared me WAY to much.
well one day, i decided that it was time. I needed to see what i had done to myself. I mean I knew I had gained weight but didnt know exactly how much. well, i was 198lbs!! I was so upset and was finally fed up! Not too mention, that same night (i hadnt told my fiance anything about me getting on the scale that day) My fiance and I were sitting down about to have dinner and he told me that he loved me so much. which was nice to hear after the day that I had. BUT that if i kept eating they way that I was, then I was going to end up like most of my family, overweight, diabetes, high cholesteral, etc. He told me that he had to tell me this bc he was seeing how my weight was affecting ME, and how unhappy i was not to mention the terrible health issues i was doing to myself.
thats when it totally hit me. I HAVE TO DO SOMETHING. well needless to say I started in april of 2009 got down to 145lbs by September of 2009. Just by diet
(just eating 1/3 of the portion of food i was eating), exercise, and staying away from carbonated drinks! My goal weight is 125 but getting down to 145 made me so much better about myself, I just stopped my extreme dieting.
well my fiance surprised me and proposed to me in February of this yr, so it made me start thinking about finally doing what I need to too get down to my goal weight, 125. Well I have been at it for about a month now, and I have lost 10lbs. Down to 135lbs…
Wondering though, is losing weight for your special day a priority to anyone else??
