    I am the heaviest I have ever been hitting the

    scale at 224. According to the BMI chart I think I'm supposed to be 130. I couldn't even imagine myself at 130 but I don't want to be 224. I should have taken the hint when my close stopped fitting. I have to admit my sweats and sweaters are quite comfy. It's not that I eat too...

    times a week and cutting out many unhealthy foods. So proud of myself.

    Finally signed up for a membership at my local

    gym. This gym has everything I need, and nothing I don't. I enjoy being in there. It's like a sanctuary where I can put the phone in the locker and forget about the outside world.

    What In The HELL Is The Deal?

    I'm still losing weight with my shakes.

    The cleanse that you go through is awesome. I just feel like I'm getting a bunch of "blah" out of my system. The only exercise I'm doing is walking my dog.

    Growing up, I was a little chubby.

    I hung out with the popular crowd of beautiful skinny girls and i was known as the "cool but chubby chick." I hated that! No one wants to be known as "that" girl. I am 5'2 and back then, 130 pounds was ALOT of weight. (i know , it's not that big).I became anorexic and lost...

    If anyone is looking

    for a weight loss program that works, I've found one. It's shakes and protein bars but they are actually really good. You are responsible for 1 healthy meal per day ( about 600-700 calories). This stuff is making me leaner and stronger with out exercise. I love it.
