I must say, now that i have finally rid myself of such a large burden, i am a much happier person. I take pride in my appearance when i go out, and do not seclude myself like i routinely did in the past. Most of my life i have always been "the fat kid" in school. In my middle school Physical Education class, i would be forced to "run" the track. Though, i would always sloth my way around it,
My fitness goal:

The first time i really attempted to lose weight was the summer after my freshman year of high school. It didn't strike me that i was over-weight until i weighed myself at the mall, just out of curiousity. I weighed 293 lbs at the time, and i knew right then and there i had to do something about it. I put myself on a high protein and low carb diet, with a very strenuous work out plan. I reduced my caloric intake to around 1500 calories a day, and did an hour and a half of cardio at a local gym every day. My favorite machine, the Eliptical, became my new best friend. I worked out for a whole month and a half and lost fifty-two lbs. That was the first time i lost weight. I kept it off my whole sophomore year.
By the time of my junior year, i had become careless once again. I no longer exercised, nor did i watch what i ate. I simply did not care, not being nonchalant, i just had no idea i had gained even more weight back.
February of 2006, i weighed a whopping 302 lbs! That is nine lbs more than i weighed to begin with. I decided something must be done. I couldn't keep living the way i do. Not only was i displeasing to the eye, but i was extremely unhealthy. My doctor told me i could have a heart attack from being that heavy. I realized... i could die. So again, i began a newer, stricter diet plan. I decided i would become a vegetarian, but i did not stop at that. I would only consume green leafy vegetables, no root vegetables or sugary fruits. For the first few months of my "transformation," i was not a member of a gym. I walked every night for an hour and that was the extent of my exercising. By summer time, i moved to Texas and joined a local gym as soon as i got here. I was already down to 200 lbs. I was ready to start working out vigorously, yet again.
It is now the beginning of March 2007, and i must say i have accomplished a ton. I have literally lost the weight of a whole person. It feels like i am a completely different person, too. I now enjoy going out, shopping for new clothes, and i actually enjoy exercising! I am not far from my goal, and i know i will achieve it soon. Anyone can accomplish what i have accomplished; Dedication and a positive "i can do it!" attitude is all that is needed.
