To put it out there plain and simple though, I lost close to 30 lbs when I was 16 years old. Throughout my whole journey, my heaviest was please remember how short I am and my lowest was When I look back at grade school, there was no doubt that I was the chubby girl. Even as a young child I knew I was heavy. I knew. At eight-years-old, I would stare in the mirror with disgust in my eyes, as I looked at myself.
Why I was different. While as a child it hurt, I was still a child, I was confused more than anything. We ate the same food, drank the same drinks, were in the same activities and sports…. So why was I so much heavier? When I was 16, I decided to make a change and start to do something about it. Right around this time, I had just gotten my drivers license Fall and my mom was finally letting me drive to and from school by myself, so I drove to the YMCA and I got a gym membership.
When I first walked in, I had no idea what to do in the gym, nor where to even begin, but as time went on, I figured it out. To you, and to myself today, that is nothing, but at that time, it was the hardest 10 minutes of my life. I would then go down to the matt, I would stretch, do a series of ab exercises, and then I would do weights. I had my own little routine, and I would normally do full body exercise every day.

Nutrition wise I cut out all bread, all fast food, and all sodas. This started after reading the book Fast Food Nation everyone should read it!
I also started incorporating a grapefruit day…. I call it the magical fruit. At this time, I was not counting calories at all, but I was very careful about the amount I was eating, and what I was putting in my body. I would watch the scale go down every week, every day, and that was all the motivation I needed. By solely cutting junk food out of my diet and dedicating myself to 45 minutes at the gym 6 days a week, I lost 20 lbs in less than a year.
To be completely honest, it actually gives me severe anxiety putting this out there and for being so vulnerable…. I mean, even Colton has seen very few pictures of me at my heaviest. I truly believe that all sizes are beautiful…..http://www.stringrecordings.com/img/reference/die-wanderarbeitnehmerverordnung-ewg-nr-140871-german-edition.php

When I think back to that time and I see the pictures…. I remember that little girl. Only because it was so hard deciding what to share, how to share it and how to make everything flow. Towards the end of my senior year of high school, a few months before heading off to Baylor, I let myself add on a few extra pounds, but nothing too drastic. There was no way I was going to let myself gain the infamous freshman Nope, not this girl.
I look over and see the other kids in full rotations with their jump ropes now and I attempt to replicate their motions. I attempt to have the same finesse and coordination as they do but I cannot achieve it. I can see the other kids looking at me as they continue to with rhythm jump, swing, jump, swing, jump swing as I struggle just to get the rope under my feet for a single swing.
My Journey to Fitness
Confidence Broken. Confidence broken.
I want to take a moment and for you to think about what those two words mean to you. On that day, I walked onto that track and field day as an unconfident boy, was emotionally impacted due to my own inabilities and I walked off knowing I would never allow myself be in that situation again. My confidence had been awoken. I was ready to take action, make decisions, and live a life that I would never feel like that again.
Check back tomorrow as my story continues in this 6-part blog series. I remember that little boy and he has grown into quite a young man …. Left me hanging! I love that you are not just chasing your dreams, you are living them! We walked through my childhood journey […].
