Hello! I go by the name of Emily, but that’s not my actual name. I just don’t want people that know me to find this blog. I’m eighteen years old and I just started college. I want to be confident with myself, so I’m trying to lose weight… again. Here’s the story of my weight loss.
Losing weight isn’t something new to me. On April 16, 2011, I decided to start losing weight. I weighted around 145-150 lbs at only 5’1 so I was considered overweight. I decided to lose weight because I was so unhappy. Every morning, I would change about three or four times because I felt so uncomfortable in my clothes. I wore baggy and unflattering clothes all the time. It didn’t help that my brother would call me a “fat bitch” everyday. I was just so fed up with myself.
I lost weight by eating healthy and exercising. I had a few bumps along the way, but it was worth it. I felt happy because my self confidence was so high. Unfortunately, I ended up gaining some of the weight back. It was my senior year of high school and I had taken a full load of classes plus joining the Academic Decathlon team instead of taking it easy. I went to food when I was stressed out, which was almost all the time. I didn’t have to workout and I wasn’t watching what I was eating. Before I knew it, I had gained almost all the weight I had lost.
Now that I’ve graduated from high school, I have a lot more time on my hands to focus on myself. I’m more determined than ever to lose weight. Not only do I want to lose the weight, but I also want to be able to maintain a healthy lifestyle even when life gets a little hectic.
That’s all I have to write, so thank you for reading :D
