"I haven’t always had this body, I’ve been from one end of the spectrum to the other with my weight, from a 5’ 1” 202 lb fat girl to a 98 lb border-line anorexic."
I guess I inherited the family obesity gene because I was over weight most of my life. For me, eating was my life- I love it but it was only a matter of time before my love of food caught up with me.
During a routine doctor visit I found out that I had gained almost 25 lbs in about 3 months. Hearing that was bad enough until he said I wouldn’t make it to see 30 if I didn’t do something about it- and soon. It scared me enough to get myself into a gym. I lost 72 lbs in 9 months leaving me at a healthy 130 lbs- but I made the mistake of becoming obsessed with scale weight. I was so afraid of gaining my weight back I started doing 3 hrs of cardio 6 days a week and eating only 1,200 calories a day. Three months later, I dropped to an unhealthy 98 lbs putting me on the verge of anorexia (but I actually liked that because I was fat for most of my life).
