I was always a big girl. It wasn't till my senior year in high school when I woke up one day and realized that my weigh was completely out of control. I looked at my senior graduation pictures and was disgusted at what I saw. I was 350 lbs pushing 400! I was in complete denial and always stayed away from scales, I would even look away from the scale when doctors would weigh me. When I finally saw my real self in the mirror I was not happy and I only had a few months till college. I was unhappy but I was feeling a little more motivation. I was going to a new school, new city, and a new state. I would have the choice of who I wanted to be and not be labeled for my past unless I chose to be. I was off to college over weight but hopeful. I had no car so I had to walk everywhere and my roommate was more like a sister to me and we would always have fun staying busy and going to clubs to dance our butts off... Literally. Four years later and now I'm 235 lbs! I have so much more energy and I love my body more then I did before. I'm still working on losing weight but I feel like I'm in a rut. I feel like my weight is on a plateau phase but I'm still a little hopeful. Motivation is hard to find but I'm still fighting myself everyday to lose the weight and get fit. I've come so far and I'm not giving up now!
