following: Shelli5's own diet
performance: gaining 0.1 lb a week
I am 43 years old. I am the mother to 4 wonderful children. I have been married for almost 18 years.
I was always active throughout my life. I began to be serious about my health when I was about 21. I ran, biked, lifted, etc... I also began to juice and limit my intake of garbage. To be completely honest, I feel like I was on the verge of becoming anorexic. I got down to about 111 lbs and I am 5'6". That might be acceptable for someone my height, but not for me . I was losing my hair, super weak, and a bit too obsessed with exercise.
I was able to pull myself out of that unhealthy cycle, though I would only let myself get up to about 115. I ended up getting married and had 3 miscarriages and 4 children within 8 1/2 years. I gained about 45 lbs with each pregnancy. My weight seemed to gravitate back to about 120. After my last pregnancy I had some health issues, which caused me to give up exercising. I got depressed and began to eat. And here I am at 163!
I honestly would be happy to hit about 125, so maybe I will change my goal weight.
I hope to make some friends along the way!!! Good luck to all of us!!!
