So around the end of May I came to a crossroad in my life. Either I could continue to live the way I had, eating whatever and however much I wanted and being incredibly unhealthy and loose the love of my life because my lifestyle was driving a wedge between us, or learn to take care of myself and my body. I chose the latter. I began working out almost every day and pushing myself at the gym where before I had always slacked. I set a calorie goal for myself and make sure everyday that I do not go over this goal by logging all of my food. I have started to use the Nutrition tab in MyFitnessPal to ensure that I am not over eating fats and getting enough protein, something that is the hardest for me to do.
In just a short almost 2 months I have lost 15 pounds, and dropped a waist size. I am ecstatic about my transformation. Not only do i look slimmer, but I feel better, I’m more confident, and I’m happier than I have been in a long time. Coming from someone who suffered from depression at my heaviest -almost if not over 200 pounds- working out and losing this burden has made me a happier person. I don’t get sad for no reason as often as I used to. I don’t feel sorry for myself anymore or bad about the way I look.
I don’t want this to come off as “my boyfriend said I need to be on a diet so he would love me” because that’s not the case. My boyfriend is a firefighter and is typically in good shape. He likes to be active and he is very particular about taking care of himself. I gained 11 pounds since we first started dating due to Taco Bell outings at 11:30, Buffalo Chicken Parmesan, the amount of butter I use to cook, and my lack of activity, and frankly he saw that I wasn’t taking care of myself and it bothered him. If I don’t care about myself- what does that say about how much I care about him? I’m not starving myself to loose weight and I’m not spending excessive hours at the gym over working my body. I am working on myself in the right way and seeing results..
I don’t know the last time I weighed this weight. maybe High School?

I’m crying with desire.
