I didn't really start out as a "big" kid per say. I was fitting into the right clothes for my size as a child, but my tummy would always feel squished!!ol. When I started middle school I became "chubby" and then I graduated and got a little taller (late bloomer) and thined out to where I was comfortable between an 11/12-13/14. I had my first son gained some weight and then I took it off pretty easy. Then I moved in with my son't father and proceeded to pack on some weight taking me up to a 18-20 and that being tight. Then I got pregnant with my second son and gained a little more. Well my relationship ended when I was about 3 month pregnant. My boys father is spanish so I was in Puerto Rico living with his family while he was still living in the states with another woman. So reality hit, I came home, moved back in with my parents and had my 2nd son. I lose weight fairly quick, I was at the gym every day. I went back down to a 11/12 and I was happy. I dated a little bit then started working for the cable comapny. I met, fell in love with and married my husband. Guess what? I got very content and slowly but shuely gained back all my weight plus some. I'm 255 right now and feeling mighty uncomfortable. All during my life I've tried so many diets only to get dissapointed and fail. At first I was so against the thought of weight loss surgery and I was very scared of it. But then one day it hit me that I'm more scared of being pre diabetic, having migranes all the time, having my body be sore all the time caring more wieght, feeling myself weeze, I never did that before. Its time for me to make a life change to get healty and be there for my kids and my husband. My bonus (I like that word better than step) lives with us too. So I have a 18 year old boy, a 16 year old boy & a 12 year old boy at home. They like sports and like to keep active and I can't do it because I can't keep up with them. I'm thinking that is all about to change. I would love to meet others for support during my journey to a healthy-both phsically and mentally life style!!!
