I have battled with being overweight for most of my life. In high school, though, my body was as close to 'perfect' as it ever had been. Though, even then, I found fault with it. Mental scars left behind from less than kind peers. High school was different, though. As a result of being in marching band or on the flag team, I was ALWAYS moving, it seemed.
With graduation, that all changed. My level of activity changed, but my eating habits did not. I could no longer eat everything that I wanted and still remain thin.
Add to that... giving birth to three children and a history of emotional eating that was instilled in me at a young age... I've developed a body that I'm less than proud of.
I've tried to lose the weight many times, but any success that I may have had didn't last for long. It probably doesn't help the picture that is my current body is deeply ingrained in my mind...
I want to regain my 'other body' and keep it.
