Finding a Healthier me

I wasn't always obese. I was a tall lanky kid at one point. Then I turned 13 years old and something odd happened, my body started to change in ways I couldn't understand. I was diagnosed with PCOS in my early 20's and it all started to make sense. I hit 300 pounds at age 21 and cried for hours. At age 27 I hit my highest weight of 330 pounds.

I wasn't always obese. I was a tall lanky kid at one point. Then I turned 13 years old and something odd happened, my body started to change in ways I couldn't understand. I was diagnosed with PCOS in my early 20's and it all started to make sense. I hit 300 pounds at age 21 and cried for hours. At age 27 I hit my highest weight of 330 pounds. But it wasn't till I saw the pictures of me next to my family at my mom's wedding that I really got it, I was losing control and emotionally eating. That was when I started learning everything I could about PCOS and started slowly incorporating healthier habits into my life. During college I lost weight due to never having enough time to eat but gained it back once I graduated. But over this last year I have been really working hard, eating low carb, working out, pushing myself beyond my limits and fighting emotional binge eating. It isn't easy and I struggle ALL the time but what matters is the healthy habits I am building today!! So far I have lost 24 pounds and I can't wait to see how much more I can lose with some more hard work!!

I also write about PCOS, weight loss and what I am currently doing to lose weight in my blog. So please make sure to also check out my blog at findingaskinnierme.blogspot.com/ and become a follower.
