Who am I? (as it relates to this page)

I am a single gal in my early 30s who is serious about trying to live a healthy life -- physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually.

I have struggled with weight virtually all of my adult life.  I remember in seventh grade I fit (very very snugly) into a single pair of size 14 pants.  Other than that, I remember wearning only size 16 and up.

My senior year of high school I joined the swim team and for the first time in my life lost a little weight -- completely without trying.  I remember some of my friends and my mom really complimented me on my weight loss.  "You're looking downright svelte!" she said.  I weighed 195 lbs. at the time.  I would love to get back to that weight.  It's about 40 lbs. away.

I started this journey -- for the second time -- at 299.4 lbs and feeling terrible about myself and my life.  I've dealt with depression, back and SI problems, and emotional and binge overeating.  In about a year and a half, I have lost 70 lbs. and dealt with getting healthy from the inside out.  This is the lowest I've weighed since I was a sophomore in college.

This blog chronicles the transformation I have undertaken and continue to undertake as I work to get my life back and rid myself of the shackles of morbid obesity and its devastating physical and mental side effects.
