    I'm ready. I'm ready to love myself again

    and to treat my body how it deserves to be treated. An agonizing decade of constant weight gain. The stress I've put on my body is inexcusable. Many things contribute to it... depression, stress, career, shift work.. but I have to change my attitude about my life. If I want...

    When I graduated high school I was 180lb

    and only 5foot 3. I managed to lose 60 lb in a year and a half. Now 3 years later I've gained 20 back. I really want to lose weight again but even exercising isn't helping this time.

    I'm tired of being an outcast

    because of my weight. Am I not worthy of love or deserving of basic human rights, just because I'm not a size zero or four or twelve? I've tried losing weight..... The more I seem to try, the more I seem to gain. What's wrong with me?

    So here is my before

    and "during" pictures. Like I've posted before I'm working very hard to lose weight and tone my body. Eating right & exercising is key! The 2nd picture was taken about 2 weeks ago so I'm excited to take an even more updated one and see how I've progressed since then.

    I fail at losing weight,

    because I feel like I'm not doing it for myself. I keep trying though. Eventually I will see what I want and strive for it more to make the lifestyle easier to adjust to.
