I've been overweight for as long as I can remember. I started my first diet when I was 10 years old. I'm now 24 and my life has been a roller coaster of up and down pounds for the past 14 years. I've finally decided to take control of my mind and body. I'm turning to tumblr for support. I plan to document my journey. February 1 was the start and I weighed in at 255 lbs. I've got a long road ahead of me but I hope to lose 75 lbs. I'm ready to end this battle and finally reach my goal weight of 180 pounds.
