Timeline of Insantiy
1985-Jazzercise with my Aunt
1987-Watched Dirty Dancing, remembering my Aunt saying she will not eat the rest of the week so she can look like Jennifer Grey
1989-Wake up at 5a before school to work out with Gilad and watch BodyShaping while getting ready
1990-Started the fat free craze
1991-Got involved in Color Guard and started losing weight…people noticed.
1992-Still eating fat free and not losing
1993-Starved to get lean for Prom…weight 109 GOAL!
1994-Worked at Fast Food restaurant and would eat baked potatoes because they did not have fat
1995-Started College…need I say more
1997-Partying Wed, Thurs, Fri, and Sat. Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol….I got up to around 135 during this time and was CHUBBY!
1999-Preparing for marriage. Living off of Hamburger Helper and fish sticks but running 3 miles 4x’s a week. Got to 115! I felt great at my wedding 🙂
2002-Starting binging purging. Nothing else would work but this definitely did. WOULD NOT recommend it. Who knows what kind of damage I did to my system.
2005-Still working out. Thought I was eating right now. Bowl of cereal in the morning w/ banana, yogurts and granola bars, and a sensible dinner.
2007-Dreambodies. Wow, I learned SO much this year. If I would have only known how to eat in 1987.
2009-Still staying leaner and healthy even though what I see in the mirror is still the chubby girl who has always struggled.
Throughtout these years there is one thing that I have done consistently and that is work out. I LOVE to be in motion! My workouts have more meaning now though. I understand so much more about my body.
I’m starting to believe in the “chemical consumption” ruining the health and storing fat. My mom will be my test subject until i’m mentally prepared to venture on my own.
