My Personal Weight Loss Success Story: The Beginning

My story doesn't start out very different from many others. I had enjoyed my teenage years and early twenties in health that was well above average. Also like many others, as I approached my thirties my health and correspondingly, my weight, began to suffer.

In 1995, I started dating my husband. There were so many angles of my life converging and creating stress at that time that I began to eat for emotional and even physical support. Planning a wedding and the complications of my work environment took their toll. In the midst of my engagement, the company I was working for laid off many of their employees, including me, and I was left searching for another job. A co-worker of mine always had chocolate, free for the taking, on her desk. It was a good thing it was free or else I would have racked up quite a bill. Sugar became my compensation for energy that I couldn't muster up myself. Shortly before my wedding, I remember fretting over whether or not I'd be able to fit into my wedding dress. Thank goodness it fit!

Being down to my target weight for my wedding

At the time of my wedding, in 1997, I was a size 10 and at a healthy weight of 150 pounds. My continued bad habits were not left unnoticed. In 2002, at my peak weight and unhealthiness, I found myself at 250 pounds wearing a size 22.

Would you like to find out your ideal weight?

Drowning out any sign that my life and health were spinning out of control, I had truly lost myself. My body had become a reflection of the chaos I felt raging inside of me. Looking back, its unbelievable that I didn't come to the realization earlier that I needed to make major changes in the way I lived my life.
