My Weight Loss Journey

__________________________

An Idea is Born

My name is Estee Ratliff and I'm a 30-something born, raised, & still residing in Philadelphia, PA. I've constantly had battles with my weight since the 4th grade. In the 10th grade, I blew up to a whopping 26/28, 280 lbs. At that time I was also diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, a chronic pain disease.



At age 19 I started exercising 5 days a week. Doing that for a few months, I lost 20 lbs, became a size 22/24 and my Fibromyalgia went into remission. I started going back to school and enjoying my adult life.

Getting Started

At the age of 21 I started working out on my own again and I was happily getting into a size 20. It didn't take too long for me to become lackadaisical and slowly creep back into a size 22/24.

At the age of 24 I finally decided that I couldn't do this anymore! I was out of breathe and out of shape. I watoo young for that! It just clicked one day and I started going back to the gym in July 2006. I figured out that I wasn't really a "gym" person, as I was easily swayed from going to the gym everyday, so I started my love of workout dvds and my 'home gym'... my living room and dvd player!
