I have always been the type that is up & down the scale and when I say that I am going on a diet everyone always says "You don't need to lose any weight." However, it has always been another story with the way that my family reacts to me. I have always been in between 120-125 but about five years ago ballooned up to 145; I then made a commitment to lose weight and got down to 105 (by the way I am only 5-"1"). I kept at this weight for a year or so...until I started working full-time and going to school full-time which always made it pretty hard to keep up a balanced diet and going to the gym. On top of that my father passed away a year ago....I didn't take that very good and the weight just started to pile on. Now, I am happy to say I am out of school and I am back on my path to lose weight and feel better and get down at least two dress sizes...I want to look my best for a wedding that is coming up in October of 2005. This Thursday I meet with a personal trainer at my gym to start up my routine again and next Monday I will start my diet up again. Wish me luck!
