Just thought some of you would like to follow along on my weight loss journey. I consider a lot of you friends, so maybe you could stop by and offer words of encouragement or kick my ass and make sure I'm still on my way. I put up a sorta sad story that may have started my path to using food as a way to try and hide the sadness and make me feel better. That post and one I made today are the only ones I've made so far, but I plan on keeping it updated.
Just a little back story. As most of you know, I've been severely depressed for much of my life and tried to do some stupid things. One thing I've done my whole life is overeat. Now in high school I stayed around 250-300Lbs, which while still fat, is nowhere near where I let myself get. I have been depressed, which has caused me to overeat, but I never should have let it get as bad as what I did. I went to a weight specialist about a month ago because I was ready to lose weight and make myself healthier. I got on the scale to start with... I weighed 408 lbs. I wanted to die right there. I remember a time when I promised myself I'd never let myself get to 300. I think that I was motivated to work at it anyway, but seeing that number made me want it that much more.
I've currently been on a high protein/ low carb diet and have been working on a weight machine and treadmill I have at home. I now weigh 367 lbs. I was shocked how much weight came off so fast, but then again I have been busting my ass to get it off, and I will continue to do so. I will NEVER weigh as much as I did ever again. I made a promise to myself that I wanted to down to around 230 lbs, and I will. I won't ever do to my body what I have done to it again.
