Weight Loss

This blog originally started in November 2009 as a journal to help me work through my issues with food. After an incredibly healthy childhood spent running around outdoors and playing sports, I got it in my head that during my sophomore year of college that I could stand to lose a few pounds, and through running and calorie counting, I did it! I weighed in at 147# (a size 8) and looked and felt great. The problem was that I got way too OCD about it all, and whenever I ate too much at a meal, I started purging in order to keep my daily calorie count down. Thus began a decade of battling with bulimia.

Thankfully I’ve been on the winning side of that battle for quite awhile now, and I’m working on getting fit and toned again the healthy way.

For reference, I’m 5’8″ and tend to hover with minimal effort around 160# (a size 12). My highest weight ever (non-pregnancy) was 172#, my happy weight is 150#, and my goal weight is 142#.
