I am from Southern California so I believe I was born to be on a diet! Hollywood ready at all times! Or should I say 'Baywatch' ready? You never know when you'll bump into David Hasselhoff. So eating well and being active have always been on my mind. I have always been very sporty, I love the high of a good workout. It gets the blood going! Yet even though I have been very active, combined with a lifelong diet, my body was never super slim. My body has always been think and stocky. So think, stocky and I have to add in short! So yes, this all totally sucks. For over 30 years I believed that 'thick' was just my shape and I had to live with it. Well, that was until I watched the movie Food Inc., Forks Over Knifes and Engine 2. Those movies completely changed what I thought was 'healthy' eating to really eating healthy! I went from a think, stocky 130+ lb. shorty to a 110 lb. cutie (you can read my journey here). I have to tell you that I so super love being short!
Let's get to the photos! Okay, so what was my lifestyle in each of these seasons? Here goes:
