I've always been overweight. I've always been the fattest one out of all my friends-- which I made okay to myself because I was taller than everyone else. but it was so embarrassing. embarrassing when my mom made the costumes for my dance class using me as the model and everyone's skirts were way too big. embarrassing when a girl noticed we had the same pants and hers were loose, and mine were tight. but I never had the motivation to lose weight
my weight loss stories are embarrassing. having my mom have to bribe me to lose weight-- "if you get down to 130 pounds, I'll get you this" and after getting that after a few MONTHS, "we can get a cat after 125 pounds"-- then completely stopping, gaining all the weight back + more
I actually lied.
I never felt embarrassed or thought I was THAT fat. (those stories are true though) I thought I was average, despite my weight. I thought I looked okay, etc. etc. because my face is (apparently) small, so (according to my mom), no matter how much I gain, I'll still look presentable. which was why I had so many failed diet attempts, because I didn't feel that I needed to (in fact I thought that extra weight was because I had lots of muscle mass. hah).
however a year ago, I took a blood test (for my physical for volleyball). When I got the results back, I found out that my cholesterol was 100 points(??) higher (if I'm wrong, whatever, it basically meant that I was unhealthy) than it's supposed to be, yet my glucose level was abnormally low. (which is odd considering the fatness I had was because I eat too much candy/sweets) I didn't think it was legit, but I got worried about my health for the first time, and took action.
I have no regrets from getting that scary blood test back P:
I'm sick and tired of attempted and failed attempts to get healthy. so I figure if I publicize this, and have people expecting something out of me, I'll get more motivation to lose weight.
it's also kinda late to start this journal now because I already lost more than half my goal, but the last 10 pounds are always the hardest, so I'm gonna need a little more motivation.

: I already had a ^ food part, but it wasn't detailed ;x there are a few foods that I completely eliminated from my diet, because of high fat content + ..if you think about it, the amount of grossness in it is really disgusting.
I no longer eat:
-(pork) dumplings (as in, the ones with meat. I eat those dumplings with the same filling as jiu cai he zhi
s though. basically leek, some noodle and egg)
-hot dogs (haven't had them since like. November? ToT)
-noodles (or limit to 1 meal of noodles a day, and once every few weeks)
-ice cream (or very limited. like once every 2+ months)

[P.S. I actually had all the intention of making this thread real pretty with colours and fonts (you can tell with the very beginning) but I'm obviously not organized or decorative enough]
The difference between try and triumph, is just a little umph.
