Reality Check

Dec 24, 2009

Hola everyone!

It's been a really long time since I've been on this site (yet again). I am making a new years resolution to be active on here like I was from before my surgery. So this is the update:
It has been over 3 years since my surgery and I have gained back 45 pounds from my lowest weight of 208 (I'm currently 253 lbs). Discouraging? Ummm yes....! But I want this to be a reality check for those that have not had the surgery yet. I had the surgery when I was 20 years old. Alittle after I turned 21 I went crazy with partying.... It was a big change for me. First I was able to get into bars, drink, and tons of guys wanted my attention. From what I know now, I obviously became very overwhelmed with all the big changes. So here I am now.... 45 lbs heavier with a new understanding of what it feels like to be a "smaller" person. I have been the out casted fat person ALL of my life. So for it to change as quickly as it did was too much for me at the time.
Sure I am discouraged that I let my weight gain take hold of my life the way it has (I spent an entire year in a complete depression) but I will not let this weight gain defeat me!! I know it's a total cliche but I am going to start this new year out right!
I'm kinda scared but I plan of doing the P90X system. I'm excited and freaked out at the same time!! haha! But I plan of getting back to my lowest weight within the next 4-5 months. And from there continue on to my goal weight of 170-180!
I will make sure to keep the updates going throughout the year. I'm going to needs LOTS of support and I would love to help support other's in their journey's as well. Please add me or email me any time...! ;-)
