Weight loss. It’s not easy to do and takes hard work and dedication. As a child I was always active and healthy. My mother raised me on organic, gluten free food. I was not a chubby kid by any means. Right around the time that I began to experience the “joys” of puberty, I started noticing a change in myself. I started gaining weight and even at the age of 13, I hated looking at myself in the mirror. At 15 my doctor informed me that I had hypoactive thyroidism. From that point on I gained pound after pound. Despite the fact that my mother pushed healthy food at my face, I still ate nothing but junk food and fatty foods at school and when I went out with my friends. Knowing that with my condition, it would be more difficult for me to lose weight…I just gave up. I refused to work out or do anything to lose weight.
At 21 I reached my heaviest at 235 pounds.
My boyfriend Pablo, has also suffered with weight problems for a long time, so together we decided to finally make a life change and get healthy.
