Weight Gain

Over the past year or so, I have gained a good 25 pounds. That is one of the reasons I have been avoiding putting up any blog posts because I am so insecure with my body. My clothes don't fit the same, I had to size up in jeans, and my "fat" clothes became way too tight. People began making comments about how much weight I've gained, how I need to change my diet, and exercise, etc. And I definitely know that over the year my eating habits have changed quite drastically, I started eating more fast food, larger quantities of food, a large soda every single day, and very little exercise. My job for so long was just a stressful job with weird hours. So I would eat late, and eating late where I live meant I could only eat fast food, or Ihop.

A couple of weeks ago reality really set in. I saw a picture from my brother's graduation and just could not believe what I was looking at. It had looked like the picture had been stretched out width wise. But when you looked at everyone else they looked normal. I couldn't believe how chubby I had become. 

So I have decided to start a healthier lifestyle. I have changed my eating habits for the most part, although I have had a few set backs here and there, but for the most part I believe I have been doing fairly well. I have signed back up for the gym, and plan on going regularly before work.

I know there are no pictures to keep this post interesting and I apologize for that.
