It's been awhile since I've even looked at this blog...
I was so demotivated by my weight gain. It felt to me like the pounds came out of no where. In 6 months I went from a Size 6 to a Size 12. Even more strange to me was how the weight appeared in places that I had never had a problem before, like my midsection. I have a muffin top and I HATE it!
Losing the weight just so I could wear my clothes seemed impossible. I grew out of my pants, shirts, skirts, underwear, and my bra. I didn't even want to put on make up and lived in my yoga and gaucho pants as much as I could. If it wasn't for having to go to work I probably wouldn't have even put on a pair of real pants.
Last year was one of the longest and most difficult I can remember. I slipped into a depression and sought out therapy and medication to help me through a personally low time in my life. Everything helped incredibly and I'm thankful that I was able to recognize that I needed help. Sometimes as women and moms we think we have to do it all alone. Take it from me, we don't.
Unfortunately, the medicine I was taking was a contributing factor to the rapid weight gain. I'm in a better place now and have starting weaning myself off of it.
I have been watching what I eat, drinking lots of water and limiting the wine, sniff, sniff:(
I hope you'll follow me on my journey and I would love to follow yours. Doing this alone would be no fun!
