Once Again, If You Please...

*Update - June 2, 2013
My weight loss has slowed down a lot, but I'm still making some progress. I am determined to get back with a good amount of portion control, drink more water, take in less sugar and salt, and exercise more!


*Update - March 6, 2013:
I'm now living in Germany and loving it! Learning German quickly thanks to classes, and the active life style is helping me so much with weight loss!

________________________________________
I have always been overweight, even as a young child. I never really took notice of it until one day, when I was 17 yrs old, I stepped on a scale and was hit by the severity of the situation. I was 277 lbs. At the time, I had no idea how to diet, or even exercise properly.

Since that day, I have been back and forth with diets and weight loss. At the start I lost a total of 48 lbs, down to 229. After that I found out I had Celiac, which pretty much ruined my whole dieting plan at the time. I've never really managed to get back down to that point. In February, 2012 I realized at 266 lbs, I was getting dangerously close to my heaviest weight again. Thanks to my Aunt and Cousin, I was given the idea to try a vegetarian diet - for which I'm very glad! I lost back down to 239 by July.

As is the apparent pattern, I got completely distracted from my progress by the visit of my Man (he came to see me all the way from Germany!). Don't get me wrong, I was so happy to see him! But that's exactly the reason I pretty much ignored my new diet... I was so busy concentrating on him! So now I'm back AGAIN to a heavier weight, and I'm really determined to lose it, and more. And KEEP IT OFF! I say this too often, but I really want to finish to my goal weight this time! I know it will be really challenging, with my life this hectic - I'll be going to Germany in January, 2013 - but I have to stay motivated! I know I have to do it, for me and for my friends and loved ones!

I'm doing better. I was going through a rough spot but have seemed to have gotten myself back on track. I did however weigh myself yesterday and didn't lose a pound. I was bumming about that. I really thought I would have lost some weight with how well I did last week. Oh well, this week is another week and maybe I'll show some progress.
