My Wonderslim Journey
Just another 3fatchicks.com weblog
I am a mom. I am a wife. I am me. I used to be thin. I was a nice, healthy 156 pounds, wore a size 8, and was always on the move. Then life happened. I was in a car wreck. An injury limited how active I could be, but I tried. Then I introduced meat into my diet. Bad idea. But the biggest thing, was pregnancy. Actually, it was the aftermath. I gained a whooping 100 pounds after I gave birth. A year later, I had surgery on my gallbladder and gained an additional 50 pounds. And today, I am struggling with the poor health that saddled itself on me in roughly three and an half years. I gained quickly. I know I will be losing slowly. But I have to do this. For my daughter, who I don’t want to think it is okay to be this heavy. For my husband, who made a pact that if I lose 50 pounds, he will quit smoking. For me, because I want to live my life the way I choose, and not the way my body limits me. Here’s to a new life; here’s to a new me; here’s to a better me.
