I've had food issues most of my life. I cant remember the last time I was thin. Growing up I was awkwardly big for my age, I was the tallest and although not "fat" I was built larger than most little girls my age. Now I'm in my 20s (and slightly overweight thanks to all things sweet) and I have a dairy allergy and I am gluten intolerant. I love food, but I'm starting to realize the feeling isn't quite mutual. Since transitioning to a strict gluten free diet a few months ago, I've already lost 10lbs. This blog Is the start of a new journey for me. Not just a weightloss journey, but an overall health journey. Wish me luck in this battle against cellulite and mass cravings!

Well I did it! My weigh in weight was 148.6 pounds. I lost 5.4 lbs these past 2 weeks!! I'm so excited. I havent been in the 140's since I was maybe 16. I havent noticed my clothes fitting looser yet though but I have noticed my energy levels have skyrocketed since I've been jogging an hour a day. I feel better and I'm overall happier I think. My father died 3 years ago, he had alot of health/weight problems which eventually took his life at the age of 58. I think he would be proud to see his daughter finally caring about what she puts in her body and working towards a healthy lifestyle. My highest weight that I know of (i stopped getting on the scale after a certain point) was 162 and although I know at that weight I wasn't severely obese or unhealthy, I was working my way to that point. The fact that I gained more than 20 pounds in less than a year just boggles my mind. My friend always tells me I don't know anything because she gained 50 lbs in less than a year, BUT she also got pregnant and had a baby during that period haha. I don't have an excuse. Well, that's my rant for today!
