UPDATE 6/25/2013:

I have really been struggling since july of 2011. I am 30 pounds heavier than my lightest, and about 25 lighter than my heaviest. I became pregnant with my son december 10 2011 and throughout my pregnancy I could eat whatever i wanted without gaining any weight. I gained 20 lbs with my pregnancy and lost 30 within the first month after I gave birth, breastfeeding and eating whatever I could get my hands on. When my son was 3 months old he would no longer take the breast, he switched to formula and I started taking birth control. I gained 12 pounds in a month and decided to take myself off the medication. I still cannot get the weight off!! On the plus side, I have been sober since December 2011, an addiction I have been struggling with for 7 or 8 years. I have started juicing and have started a "clean" cooking lifestyle...here's hoping!

FROM 2010:
I am 28 years old and have been the fat girl my entire life. I have dealt with depression extensively since I left home to go to college in 2001, where my weight ballooned to over 200 lbs. I joined Weight Watchers and over a period of 3 years I lost 55 lbs through diet alone. When my boyfriend returned from his deployment in the USAF we got too comfortable and I gained back 20 lbs and also gained a lot of insecurity and self loathing from that 20 lbs. Through moderate diet and exercise I have managed to SLOWLY lose 10 lbs. Looking forward to what the future brings!!

    I'm going to send you a sparkmail, but I had SOOOO MUCH FUN looking through your photo gallery! You have done such a great job with your weight loss, and you're doing such a good job of maintaining it! I know you gained back 20, but you've taken 10 off. That's a LOT better than so many people! Great job, and keep up the great work! :-)
