"The most common form of malnutrition in the Western World is obesity," Mervyn Deitel

Growing up as the fat kid, life was never easy. I got over it, and instead of praying of being like everyone else, I worked on myself. Battling an eating disorder, suicide attempts, and depression, I defined my own self-worth and developed bulletproof confidence. I married my amazing husband in August 2008, and it's the greatest thing I've ever done.

I started 2009 at 294 lbs., the highest I've ever been. In fact, the last time I was under 200 lbs., I was 13 years old, which was ...
Growing up as the fat kid, life was never easy. I got over it, and instead of praying of being like everyone else, I worked on myself. Battling an eating disorder, suicide attempts, and depression, I defined my own self-worth and developed bulletproof confidence. I married my amazing husband in August 2008, and it's the greatest thing I've ever done.

I started 2009 at 294 lbs., the highest I've ever been. In fact, the last time I was under 200 lbs., I was 13 years old, which was also the last time I was able to shop in a regular store. Although I'm healthy now, at 25 years old, I know that my weight combined with my family history is deadly. Heart disease and cancer run rampant on both sides, and my parents were each diagnosed with Diabetes at the age of 49. I'm going to do the best that I can to ensure that this is one tradition that I'm not going to follow!

I'm losing the weight through diet and exercise, and will attempt to ward off diabetes the same way. My goal is to have my fasting blood sugar under 110, and my A1C at 6 or under. I also hope to eventually be rid of migraines, recurring bronchitis, and depression.

01/27/09 - weight 285, fasting blood sugar 137
02/13/09 - weight 279, fasting blood sugar 112, A1C 6.1

I'm going to do this, no matter how long it takes, or how bumpy the road. This is a lifestyle of choice, not necessity, and I hope to prove to myself that I can do this, and someday be a motivator to others to do the same. I can't even imagine what it will be like to be an average size, to no longer be morbidly obese, obese or overweight, and to be able to shop in the same stores as everyone else. One thing I do know is that I'm looking forward to finding out!
