View Full Version : I'm back for some needed support.

I knew I would be back after this pregnancy. Here I am. I put most of what I need to share in my ticker. I only gained 21 pounds this time, but from the last time I checked in I gained 9 lbs, then found out I was pregnant.

so here I am 2 months postpartum, 34 years old, and I am more determined than ever to look good to myself. I am tired of seeing a fat me in the mirror.

the other day a patient called me "heavy". and a few days ago a neighbor said to me "you are not fat" when I commented about my weight loss. And then in the next breath, "I knew this girl, she was fat she must have been 200 lbs."

My 5'5" frame does hide my weight well, but I KNOW I'm fat.

time to lose the weight!

I started the year off cutting back on wheat because I think I have wheat sensitivity NOT celiac, and my stomach has been less gassier and less bloated, I tried calorie counting, but I spend wayyy too much time doing that and so I fall back on my favorites, protein shakes and intermittent fasting.

The ONE DAY diet seems to fit my needs. I'm going to try that for a while and then I might switch up. I am still breastfeeding and also need to protect my supply.
