Fat to fit

My story:

2008-Started Sparkpeople and in 6 months was the healthiest. lightest and thinnest I've been in my whole life (even moreso than when I was a college swimmer!)

2010-Lots of life changes including transitioning from a stand-up active job to a sit-down office job with a culture of bad food and alcohol. Gained about 5kg back of what I had lost.

My story:

2008-Started Sparkpeople and in 6 months was the healthiest. lightest and thinnest I've been in my whole life (even moreso than when I was a college swimmer!)

2010-Lots of life changes including transitioning from a stand-up active job to a sit-down office job with a culture of bad food and alcohol. Gained about 5kg back of what I had lost.

2011- Lost a little bit of weight and got married to a wonderful man. Had a lot of stressed including the Christchurch earthquake to contend with but still stayed semi-fit.

2012- Weight went up a bit more, but I still felt ok about myself and I ran a half marathon on my birthday.

Jan-Mar 2013- Continued to ignore the true problems that was my constant weight gain and ate what I wanted, when I wanted it. Exercised little, hurt my back I was so unfit= downward spiral and excuses.

April 2013- Started getting help from a trainer who focuses on balancing the body out, back is healed, started to swim, run and bike again.

April 27, 2013- Weighed myself and found that I am now the heaviest I have been in my entire life at 79KG. Just below 80KG!!! Decided to take some "before" photos. Shocked at what I saw in the pictures. I didn't realize how bad it had gotten, how big I had become and how close to obese I looked. My friend said I was brave to take the pictures, but had I not, I would have continued to think that I was much healthier and fitter than I really am.

Now that I can actually see it I have to admit it to myself. I am fat. And I am not happy about it. I am not proud of it. I am embarrassed and I do not want to be the girl in the pictures anymore.

These photos were a wake up call and I am now ready to re-embark on the journey I started back in 2008---to be healthy for the rest of my life in order to have confidence, feel beautiful and enjoy a long life full of energy and happiness.

I cannot wait to post my after photos! Coming SOON!

No worries at all. I haven't been very active on here either, nor have I been tracking food. We just finished a big project at work, so back to tracking is now up. We're going to Maui in a couple of weeks...really looking forward to it!!
