I’ve struggled with my weight since I was a young child.
I started going on fad diets in middle school and hoped that these unhealthy trends would save me from my issues with over eating, poor food choices, and lack of exercise.  In the 7th grade I started binging and purging and continued doing this for seven years.
It took a lot of will power and patience to get to this point in my health journey. I’m not at my goal weight yet, but I’m happy with the progress I’ve made thus far.
Once upon a time I weighed 200 pounds. Now I’m at 137, and I am healthier, stronger, more energized, etc. I’ve gotten this far by making healthier choices and running 5/6 times a week in congruence with strength training 1-2 times a week. 
I’m nowhere near perfect- I have my problem areas and slip ups- but I’m finally starting to make amends with my body and I couldn’t be happier.

#tbt before and during photo.

The photo on the right is from last Thursday. Last week I realized I kinda have a waist now! ~163 lbs, 5’7”, size 8 dress.

The photo on the left is from a long time ago. Size 20 pants.

My ‘apple’ shape is transforming into a ‘pear’ shape.

too much detox?

As a little challenge to myself, over the last 12 days:
- I had no Diet Coke all 12 days
- I had no alcohol for 11 of the 12 days
- I took a Bikram class a day for 11 of the 12 days
plus a few indoor cycling classes, trying to keep my food on point, etc. during that time too.

Yesterday I did not work out, at all. PLUS I had wine (and a lot of food) at dinner with friends.

And today I have just felt a low level of awful all day!

I went to an early indoor cycling class to sweat out the wine, I added in a bunch of greens with my lunch, and I’m still just felling pretty…blah…today.

I blame the wine. And I’m also blaming it on being “too detoxed” for the last 12 days. :)

I still haven’t had a Diet Coke, though! Really trying to get rid of that habit.

starting over. starting again. starting from here.

Things that have happened since I last posted here nine months ago:

- No, I did not have a baby!

- I ran a half marathon, whoo!

- I regained almost 20 pounds

- I re-lost almost all of those regained 20 pounds

I became very complacent in my weight lost over these several months.

Read: I got lazy.

Just because you’re working out that does not mean you can out-exercise a crap diet. And when things go wrong in your life you cannot turn to food, as is per your usual, and not expect to regain the weight.These are the things I have to learn.

So, I am going to try and use this Tumblr again, to connect with other people who are on this journey, and to hold myself accountable.

Today, Wednesday August 27th weigh in: 162.0 pounds
(I am 5’7”)

SW: 238
CW: 162.0
1st goal weight: 158 (my old ‘current weight,’ before the regain/re-loss earlier this year)
2nd goal weight: 145 (what my doctor wants me to weigh)
3rd goal weight: 138 (100 pounds lost!)
UGW: 135 (what I think I want me to weigh. This is subject to change.)

Goals:

- post here daily with my intake and exercise
- weigh in Wednesdays
- other goals to come

That’s the problem with putting others first; you’ve taught them you come second.

read that, again.
