following: cherryblossommj's own diet
performance: losing 0.6 lb a week
Early 20's, newly married (May 2006), college graduate, desire to be a SAHM, if I can get pregnant. I have always struggled with my weight I've thought. Through out high school I was a size 12 and always thought that was too big and hated it. Now I look back on those pictures and miss being so skinny. Now I'm a tight size 16, and I have no idea where the weight came from. Many ideas put forward have been stress, hormones, and the like. Six months before my wedding I gained a good 50 lbs, we think it was related to taking Isocort, a medicine from a naturopath that was to raise my Cortisol levels to aid in relieve depression... But, we are not sure. Other than that I have never drastically changed my diet, I do not eat when I'm stressed, I eat well (I could eat better). I hardly ever have soda, or white sugar, or candy. I joined Curves and did their 6 week challenge and exercised straight three days a week from November 2006-June 2007 and gained 10 lbs, and many inches, and never lost a thing. Nobody could make heads or tails of it. My husband and I keep thinking back to when I lived in this one apartment and I was probably my healthy skinniest, a size 10-12, sometimes 14. It was my first apartment on my own, I finally had my kitty living with me again, I was kinda on the SBD, and otherwise I ate Kraft Maccaroni all the time, and drank V8, and tea. So... now after no luck with Jordan Rubin, or Bob Greene, or Gary Heavin, I'm going to go back to Arthur and see if his ideas really did help back then and if they can help now. Although, lately I keep seeing friends of mine that I've known to do WW, be really skinny lately, so maybe I should look there...
