performance: losing 0.5 lb a week
I am 24 years old and currently not working. I got married in 2010 to my high school sweetheart. I had a miscarriage in October of 2010 (10 weeks) which was the starting point of my year long depression. I never knew I was a stress eater until my heart broke when I went to the doctors that last Wednesday in October when he told me the baby was gone.
I was 160lbs when that happened. I felt a little overweight then but not unmanageable. I was very athletic actually! Sadly, I gained a lot of weight since then. I stepped on the scale not too long ago and saw 200lbs!! I wanted to cry all over again but I'm lucky to have a husband that won't let me do that to myself ever again.
I want to get back down to the old me, where I don't have to think "how can I hide that fat roll?". I look at almost every woman that walks by me and compare my weight to theirs. It's driving me batty. So instead of making myself crazy, it's time to do something about it!
One day, hopefully in the near future, I want to have a baby. My husband and I have both pledged we will not get pregnant until we are BOTH healthy! If we can't take care of ourselves, how can we take care of such a precious gift?
