My whole life I've struggled with my weight. When I was 6, I remember being told it was just "baby weight". I'm sure whoever said that to me was like, what the HECK is a 6 year old worrying about her weight for?! My kindergarten teacher told me when I was 17 that I used to try to skip lunch when I was 5 because I thought I was too fat.
That's pretty sad.
Long story short, I've had serious struggles and recovered from them. Now, I'm comfortable in my own skin and happy to be me. This is a huge accomplishment.
However, I still want to be healthy and fit and look great! I've managed to lose most of the "baby weight" from pregnancy but still really need to lose 20-25 lbs to be in good shape. I've been feeling depressed about it lately and each time I renew my commitment to monitoring my calories/exercising, I slack off a week later. (Because of my history, I've screwed up my metabolism and I really DO need to watch every calorie- even when its carrots).
-sigh- This is basically a vent post to get it out there. Anyone want to keep me accountable?
