If you're sick of starting over, you have to stop quitting!

I suppose I should start out with the fact that this is not my first rodeo. Basically my entire pre-teen/teenage/young adult life has been a battle with my weight. I currently weigh a whopping 300 pounds. That's two people, in case you were wondering. How could this happen? Well, I'll tell ya. No exercise, binge eating, constantly eating food from the dreaded drive-thru, and laziness. At least I'm honest with myself. I think the moment I realized I was overweight was probably in the 5th grade. ...
I suppose I should start out with the fact that this is not my first rodeo. Basically my entire pre-teen/teenage/young adult life has been a battle with my weight. I currently weigh a whopping 300 pounds. That's two people, in case you were wondering. How could this happen? Well, I'll tell ya. No exercise, binge eating, constantly eating food from the dreaded drive-thru, and laziness. At least I'm honest with myself. I think the moment I realized I was overweight was probably in the 5th grade. We were in gym class and had to be weighed for some reason. Each of my classmates went up and was weighed, my teacher told the weight to her assistant, and they went on their way. When it go to be my turn, I weighed in at 99 pounds. A lot more than what my other female classmates were weighing in at. After that moment, I realized that I needed to do something about it. I became obsessed with my weight, to the point of being sick over even stepping onto the scale. Then around seventh grade, I just kind of stopped and didn't care anymore. I weighed 180 pounds. I just didn't care anymore until I went into high school, weighing 200 pounds. I went on Atkins, lost 20 pounds, and felt great! Then, I gained it all back plus 60 pounds. Ever since, I have gradually been gaining and losing, gaining and losing, and now I'm at the point of no return. If I don't lose weight, I wont be able to have children. I could DIE. So, no more excuses. Here I am. Bearing my struggles for the entire world to see. My name is Heather Richey, I am 150 pounds overweight, and this is my last hope. I'm here to change my life, inspire others who are struggling, find inspiration from those who have gone through this, and begin my long journey to living a healthier life. So, lets do this.

Hi Heather,
Just stopping by to say hi and hope you are having a successful week. It is tough but together all of us sparklers can do this! Once I eat my calorie limit I keep telling myself I just have to get to bed and sleep and then I can have another 1500 calories all over again! It does seem to help during the rough days. I have to admit to sometimes after dinner I go upstairs and get in my pjs and read. I try to avoid the kitchen :-)

Well here's to your success,
Hannah
