My Life in the Fat Lane

I have been on a diet since I was 13 years old.  A kid actually called me fat when I was a size 2 in Jr. High and ever since that moment I have been striving for a more perfect body. I have tried the following to lose weight over the last 17 years: Dexatrim, cabbage soup diet, slim fast, Metabolife, Xenadrine, Hollywood Diet, Weight Watchers, HCG, Atkins, Cayenne Pepper Cleanse, & the Isogenix Cleanse. I even  tried my “hand” at throwing up after I ate (due to a rapid weight gain in highschool). That lasted about a day. (Good thing I never committed to that method) Most of the diets I tried-worked, but I could only adhere to the them for 30 days at the most and then I’d go back to overeating. Since I graduated highschool I have ALWAYS worked out and to be honest, I love working out. I was a great, healthy weight throughout my 20’s, the sad thing was-I didn’t appreciate it and still thought I could spare to lose a few lbs.  I would give the nuts I don’t have to be at the weight I was in my 20’s.  I ranged from 128-138 throughout my early 20’s and 138-154 in my late 20’s.   My clothes always fit and when they started getting tight, I would endulge in 2 day Hollywood Diet to lose 6-10lbs. Maybe this is how I ffffed up my metabolism so horribly.

If you are a skinny minny that looks fabulous in bikinis, (with the risk of sounding bitter LOL) good for you, but, this post is NOT for you!

I’m here to talk to girls such as myself. How can I put this delicately… girls who may or may not need to loose 20lbs or more, who have an after baby-pouch, who have developed cellulite, who need support for their tattas cause they’ve spent the last 6 months breast feeding their infants, who may have stretch marks all over their once perfect body from having gained 30-50lbs within a 9 month period, who perhaps were bikini wearers at one point, but now would rather die then show their midriff, Continue reading
