Hi, I'm Paige. I'm 18 years old and I started realizing I needed to lose weight May of 2013. I have always been a really skinny child and even a skinny teenager and my entire family has always been slim. So I never thought I needed to eat healthy because I thought, "hey, I'll always stay slim", but I was wrong and I gained about 30-40 pounds and was not fat but was definitely over weight. My family would tell me and I wouldn't listen, so I remember going on a trip to California with my family and when I saw pics, I was horrified.. I actually looked like this. That's when I knew I wanted to lose weight. I worked and worked and cut out all processed foods for 3 weeks and didn't eat anything unless prepared fresh and my meals usually were just egg whites, spinach, fruit, veg, and unsalted almonds, I literally dropped about 16 pounds in 3 weeks because I was also excersizing. After that, I didn't think I needed to lose more and I stopped doing what I was doing and began to notice myself feeling self conscious about my body again.. So I nor realized that I want to go back on that diet and lose weight but this time, I want it to be a long-lasting health thing and I want to be healthy for the long run. I just need advice on how I can avoid temptation and keep at it. Thanks-Paige
