For the last three years I have struggled with gaining and losing weight back and forth. I have blogged about this many times. For me, weight has always just been an indicator of how healthy I am being. While I want to look good, I care more about how healthy I am. Even if I looked good in my clothes, losing and gaining the same 10-15 pounds back and forth is not healthy.
I am an extremist, eating incredibly healthy, or completely falling off the bandwagon. This summer I feel like I hit my low in regards to my health. I started the year off great, losing thirteen pounds. But once I hit a good "goal weight," I fell into those same patterns of "Alright, I am good, I am done." The rest of the summer I just had a hay day enjoying myself. One night while out of town I became extremely sick. It was a very painful night, and I realized it was because of my poor nutrition choices. My body was done. Over it. I remember thinking, this is because of YOU. It was such a low point for me. The pain lasted for hours, and while I won't go into all the gory details, it was an extremely painful but effective lesson. I realized that I needed to make a change, a big one.
