Hello everybody. My name is Lilah, I'm twenty-four and I'm from the states. I'm not new to MiniMins though. I was doing the "Sacred Heart" diet, which, don't get me wrong, it really did work! I lost a little over forty pounds in just two and half weeks. However I have been suuuuper stressed and I got burned out on the soup and it's a main part of the diet and I just COULD NOT eat the soup got another day. Even though it was super tasty, it was VERRRRY redundant. An it was only meant as a jumpstart diet anyway, so I don't know why I was trying to do it for weeks on end. ANYWAY! I just think that by counting calories an excersicing, I will be able to keep the weight off. I want to be healthy and fit and thin and pretty. I have super, super, SUUPER low self esteem. All my friends are WAY smaller than I am, and I hate it. I feel like I don't fit in. I want to e able to walk into a normal clothing store in the mall and be able to wear something off the rack that doesn't have a "W" or "X" in the size. I currently weigh 255lbs. My goal weight right now is 190lbs. That's the smallest I've ever been. About six years ago I went from about 350lbs to 190lbs. I was super athletic and loved to excersise. I broke my wrist badly in Rugby and became lazy and gained a lot of weight back. Here I am today, 255lbs, and ready to change. I miss my old fit body, and my old "skinny" jeans. I'm not happy and it's hard to get motivated but I'm really trying hard!! Today I did a 2.5mph power walk on a steep incline on my treadmill for 15minutes and it kicked my butt!! And I feel good!!!!! Anyway, I'll stop rambling. I just need some support, motivation, and a shoulder to lean on.
