Welp. That's depressing. And very accurate for me.
My timeline (that I can remember)
2003 - 200 lbs, graduated high school tried Jenny Craig, Weight Watcher's, Herbal Magic, physician-supervised weight loss
2004 - 230 lbs, freshman "15"
2006 - 200 lbs with diet/exercise concurrent with first serious relationship
2006 - 230 lbs, 3 months after end of first serious relationship
2007 - 250 lbs
2008 - 220 lbs with diet and exercise, then started a grueling intensive 3 year program
2009 - 250 lbs
2011 - 275 lbs, graduated from said program, then couldn't find a job for 4 months, did food and retail therapy
2012 - 235 lbs, with personal trainer costing $4000 with diet/exercise
2013 - 285 lbs, highest weight ever at pre-op for vertical gastric sleeve surgery, found out 2 weeks before surgery I am hypothyroid.
Time to put an end to this horrific yo-yo dieting.
It reinforces in my mind that I'm doing the right thing by having this surgery. No turning back now.
