About Me

Hello!

Welcome to my blog! My name is Mica! I am 25 years old and I am from Austin, Texas! I have lived in Texas for most of my life. My entire family lives in this big ol state and are located here in Austin. I have three older brothers, seven nieces & nephews. I studied theatre in San Angelo, Texas. I am heavily involved in the local theatre community and I am trying to get my foot in the local film community.

A year ago, I weighed over 200 pounds. I stand at 5’1 and for someone my height, weighing 200 pounds was considered to be obese. That my friends, was scary. Before last year, I always knew I was overweight but I don’t think I got a full grasp of HOW overweight I was until I went out for my friend’s birthday. The night started off on a horrible note, I remember sitting inside my closet and having tried on EVERY single outfit and not fitting into them, I broke down crying. I hated my body, I hated myself. I had just gone through a horrible breakup and my confidence was in the negatives. The guy I was dating, I thought him to be a wonderful man who looked past my weight and I learned after our breakup that he targeted “fat girls” because they would let him do anything to them. I wouldn’t let him do anything and for that reason he left me. So that was the first wakeup call about my weight and it affected me.

So we’re at this club and on our way back to our seats, I tripped down the stairs and fell. Luckily I wasn’t hurt but a lot of people laughed at me and I heard a man say “Hey did you see that fat girl fall on the ground??” It was horrifying and at that point I just wanted to go home and cry. When I got home I tore off my clothes stood in my bathroom and just sobbed. I remember thinking how could I do this to myself? How could I let myself get to this point? Is it too late to go back to who I was? That night was the most loneliest, darkest, and depressing moment of my life. It was my breaking point. Thinking about it now makes me cry, as it does everytime I think about it.


The next day I woke up with a determined spirit. I can’t quite describe the feeling but it was a force to be reckoned with. I didn’t know it at the time but that was the first day of the rest of my new life. It sounds corny and maybe a little cheesy but it’s true! Since that day, Aprill 22 2010, I have dropped to 170. I am very proud of my accomplishment and my journey thus far.


I decided to start this page because the past month I have slipped back into my old habits full blown. I had dropped down to 165 but because I stopped jogging and began eating the bad stuff, I have gain 5 pounds. I thought this would be a great tool to keep track of my weight and my progress since I still have a long ways till I reach my target weight. I want to connect with other people who are changing their lives. I hope you enjoy my page and feel free to comment or email me!
