    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...

    A year and half ago I was 165,

    a bit heavy but fit. It was probably because I worked out two and half hours five days a week and was a vegetarian for a year. I just let myself go so much because I was stressed about grades and college and everything happening in my family. I gained so much weight. But I'm...

    Had to giggle last night.

    My hubby and I took a brisk walk and he was "done" before I was even close. He said "man I'm outta shape, I need to start working out with you". It will be nice to have a workout partner.

    I've started a nutritional program

    that helped me lose weight and tone up. I love it. I have more energy all day and it's not the jittery energy that is followed by crashing. It feels like someone got off my chest. I'm happy I did it

    I was that fat kid back in 12th grade.

    And then my brother's marriage was fixed 3 months later. People looked at me and said, "Nope! Not going to happen! or " You're not that good at it!". Well to hell with that, I got my lazy *** off and stopped using the lift to my flat (15th floor) I got home climbing those stairs...
