‘I’m an active participant’: The story of my weight loss journey
The story is a moving, emotional account of the way I lost the weight I’d always been afraid of.
My journey began in a hospital gym when I was 13 years old, when I decided that I didn’t want to be the fat kid that everybody was looking at.
It took years of struggle, denial and stubbornness to finally get to where I am today.
I’m now 51 years old and I’ve lost almost a kilogram and a half since then.
I’ve gone from a very overweight person to a slim, lean person, and now a healthy, fit person.
My goal is to continue to lose weight as long as possible, but I also want to do it with as much joy as possible.
In my early days, I was obsessed with weight loss and a constant goal was to lose as much weight as possible in a year.
I was also desperate to lose the pounds I was carrying with me from working at the gym, so I went to the gym a lot, but never lost any of the extra weight I was putting on.
When I finally started losing weight, I had an enormous relief and satisfaction from being able to eat healthy.
I had an incredible amount of hope and excitement in my mind, and I was really looking forward to my next workout.
Then, about two years ago, I went through an awful period in my life.
It was a terrible time for me.
I lost my job, lost my apartment and my health.
I just felt really sick and tired, and this time I just couldn’t take it any more.
I couldn’t even eat properly.
I didn, however, eat well.
My first meal was a pizza and I could barely eat anything else.
So I stopped eating.
I was eating less and less, and when I finally ate properly, I couldn.
I had a wonderful experience with the weight loss program, where I really didn’t have to think about the amount of weight I had and just let it all go.
I just felt like I was sooo healthy, and there was nothing else I could do to lose any more weight.
After the program, I started eating a lot more and began to gain a lot of weight.
At first, I lost 20 kilograms a month, but then I got down to 10 kilograms a week, and that was pretty much it.
I knew I was getting there, and it was really hard to stop.
I felt so happy and so free that I stopped.
I would lose a little bit a day, but that was a good sign that I was starting to lose some weight.
I never went back to that 10 kilogram-a-week weight.
I did start to eat a little more often and I really started to eat more healthy food, like fruits, vegetables and whole grains, and then I started to lose a bit more weight as well.
I think I gained about six to seven kilograms a day.
But then I lost another seven kilograms in a week.
Then I started gaining again and I had to stop eating because I had diabetes and I needed to lose that weight.
But at the same time, I wasn’t losing any more, so the weight was going to come back eventually.
I started doing the Weight Watchers diet.
The idea was to get rid of the negative feelings of eating, and to have a normal, happy life.
I started off doing the first two weeks of the diet and then started doing a diet twice a week for a couple of weeks.
I gradually got to the point where I was doing the diet three times a week and then stopped.
I stopped eating and it helped tremendously.
I also got a lot healthier, and the diabetes was less of an issue, because I was using a insulin pump.
It wasn’t the easiest time to lose fat, but once I started, I thought it was worth it.
Now, I’m a healthy weight, and so is my husband.
My health has improved.
My diabetes is very low, but there are other things going on in my brain and my body that I can’t control, so sometimes I’m going through the process of trying to control them.
My husband and I have a great relationship.
I’m not trying to do anything to him, but he’s doing all the work.
He gets up at 4 a.m. and I go to work, too, which is fantastic.
I really appreciate all the help and support.
I’ve had a lot to be thankful for.
I haven’t had to make sacrifices.
I know my weight has definitely changed.
I am now an active member of my community, working at a community centre, and also I have become a bit of a mentor for my younger daughter.
My daughter, who is about to start college, loves me a lot.
She has a lot in common with me, so we’re all really happy together.
My goal is for the next
