All my life I have struggled with my weight. As far back as I can remember, I was never the small kid. I wasn't obese at the time, but I was verging on chubby. I was never pushed into sports or physical activities and it took a lot for me to go an call on friends to go and play.

Throughout my life, my laid-back lifestyle eventually caught up with me. I started to gain weight more and more often, and I never thought that I would be at a weight that I would be happy with. I just figured that I could go on with life and worry about that later. HUGE MISTAKE!

Now at age 22, I am in the heaviest weight range that I have ever been. When I noticed that I was verging on having to loose 100 pounds, I got scared. Now, in the past I had tried on going on diets and included excercise, but when I would slip up I would fall hard and usually gain the weight I had lost back and then some.

I now know that I need to do this for me. This for my health. This is for my future. If I am to succeed in the world, I need to be at a weight that I am happy with. With the right motivation, determination, and a multitude of other things, I believe that I will finally be sucessful this time!
