Well, I’m a nineteen year old girl from Canada who has been dealing with my overweight issues for all of my life. I’m 5 foot 7 inches and my highest weight was around 220 pounds. I’ve always been the fat friend, I’ve always had issues with finding clothing in regular clothing stores, I’ve never loved or even liked myself, I thought that guys would never see past the pounds, and I always felt that my weight was holding me back.
I want to do this the healthy way, and I’ve already made a dent.
I’ve played soccer since I was 6 years old and rep hockey since I was about 12, and that’s usually been the extent of my exercise. In September 2010 I attended my first year of university, and I started going to the campus gym about 3 to 4 times a week, and tried not to overeat at meal hall. By doing that, I was able to lose about 15 to 20 pounds.
But I want to lose more. I need to lose more. I need to get healthier, because where I was and where I am now is not good for me. I made this blog to help inspire me and to motivate me to keep up my exercise and to remind me to eat healthy, and I hope to meet others in the same position as me so that we can work together through this weight.
