I am serious. I love food so much. Everything I would do or plan revolved around food. Holiday's. Outings. Vacations. Socializing. Road Trips. A day in the boat you name it. Towards the end as weight loss slowed considerably I was writing down food that I wanted to eat. I was hating anyone who got to eat normal in front of me. But....I feel better. My health is fantastic for 44. My blood work is amazing. My BP is low. I went from a size 22 to a size 6. I lost my boobs LOL! But a good bra and I am proud. Of the measurements I took...Waist, hips, thighs, arms I lost about 45". I have some extra skin but even at the last 20lbs I notice after 13.5 months it's starting to go back. Enough I won't consider a surgery. I have a clothes shopping problem however
I was and can be still a lazy person. I hated structured exercise and was convinced I didn't need to work out to lose weight and you don't. Or I don't. But I did implement a work out and will continue as I want to lose about 3-5lbs more so I can play and eat free on my weekends and keep the weight off. A new challenge. I am addicted to what the scale says and it will set my mood for the day good or bad. I am getting better though and not weighing every day. As this last month I changed up to calorie counting and IF from a long WW's ritual I only weigh on Saturday's. I did have other struggles. My weight loss year included a LOT of stress. Went through a marriage break-up (which started the weight loss as it was easy to not eat) And then a reconciliation with that marriage. My closest family members moved far away. We moved from our own home to an apt. Work got pretty intense and I still let it bother me. Then I buried my Father and 2 weeks later my Father-in-Law. Our cars were broke into in this lousy apt. As a result of all that and what they consider drastic weight loss I experienced Telogen Effluvium. Not sure of that spelling. Temporary hair loss brought on by extreme stress and shock to the body. Yah think? LOL! It's getter better but a work in progress. However.....I would change nothing. This weight loss in combination with 2013 has made me such a better person inside and to my pleasure outside. I have learned to make better choices not just with food but with life because I want to stick around for a long time. And patience. Oh my gosh have I learned patience.
Well that's my story. I was glad to have found 3 fat chicks. It helped so many times when I couldn't find that patience or my stress level was through the roof.
