I've always been big. Even as a little kid I was the cute little chunky that everyone wanted to pinch my cheeks and squeeze me lol. I don't remember being under 200lbs since I was in junior high. When I was 17 I went to Florida and stayed with my aunt for a month. She lived in the middle of nowhere and she did nothing for fun other than eat, cook and play bingo. I didn't want to get even bigger so I drank ridiculous amounts of water and walked every day that I was there and lost about 20lbs. When I got home everyone talked about how I lost weight but it started coming back fast. Not all of it but some.
By 2009 I had lost about 70lbs. Still not a "healthy" weight but again heads were turning and I felt GREAT! I even built up the confidence to apply to nursing school. I started nursing school late 2010 and graduated December 2011 (yayyy!!) as a practical nurse. But, during school going to the gym as often just wasn't an option. I yo-yo'd like crazy. Now I'm up about 25lbs to 259. I'm happy as hell I didn't gain it all back but I realize that I need help. So, as graduation approached I did my paperwork again and actually sent it in. I'm proud to have worked toward a career and now I want to congratulate myself with a healthier, happier me. I'm so excited and proud of myself already...
