Like you, I have always struggled with my weight. I was overweight when we met. When he left after the first DDay I was at my heaviest over the course of two years I gained 44lbs. When he came back I was my all time heaviest.
DDay2 hits, I dropped 15lbs in two weeks and decided to do a low carb diet and started exercising daily. I am starting to fit into my old too tight clothes and I am feeling better about myself then I did at my lowest in high school.
This is by far the longest I have ever maintained an exercise routine in my life. And for the firs time ever, it is for me and no one else.
I say embrace it and be proud. Self confidence is great for the soul!
I personally can't wait to get to my goal and buy a brand new wardrobe!
