How I lost 100 pounds...

True story: I used to be fat. Like 100+ pounds larger than I weigh now. After my thyroid was removed, I ballooned up within a very short period of time. Like 3-4 months. It was maddening, saddening and a very difficult time emotionally for me. Every day I would wake up 2-3 pounds heavier than the day before. I wasn’t allowed to take any medicine to regulate my body until my cancer treatments were over. I remember those days like they were yesterday. Maybe I have some PTSD about it still because now I am ultra careful with my weight. I don’t want to be like that again. I felt so horrible both about myself mentally and myself physically. It took me a long time to lose that weight. I completely changed the way that I ate and for the first time in my life, I started to exercise regularly. It was back then that I discovered my love of hiking. Walking was the only thing that I could do. I started off small in the beginning. Slowly the weight came off and I found that I could do so much more
