I was always a bigger girl. I was not the fat kid by any means, but to say that I come from good farm girl stock would be an understatement. I had cankles when I was 8. I never struggled with my weight until I had Meister. I suffered from horrible postpartum depression. My marriage being a total joke didn’t help either. I got FAT. I was damn heavy. Fatty fatness. At my heaviest I weighed 205. Wanna see?
|I was fat. I was also blonde.|
Notice I’m not wearing a wedding ring in the pic? That’s because The Hubs and I were just dating then. We got married a year later and then blam-o it was a comfort zone eating free for all because I’d done snagged me a man. Ugh.
So I’m back to Divorce Diet weight. Actually, I’m 177. Woot woot!
Whatcha gonna do about it Liz?
Just kidding. I have been using a calorie tracker since March. It’s an app for your phone called Lose It! I’m doing great– at least in my head I am. My goal is 160. Pre-Meister is 150, but that was also when I was 24. Realistically, 160 is probably a good place for me to be. I’d be a easy to slip on slightly loose 13/14 then. I’m in that size now in some brands, others a 15/16.
Being transparent about weight struggles and goals is a good thing for me. Food issues abound in my head. (did you know I hide when I eat? Or how I can eat two lunches and not feel full?) I like to hear about other people’s issues too. It helps me feel not alone. I like to hear that you can eat 10 sugar cookies in one sitting too. What about you? Are you mostly fat? What do you struggle with?
