Here we go.. *deep breath*
The top left picture is a few months after having my son. I gained 97 POUNDS during my pregnancy due to being a dip-shit, LITERALLY eating for two. Then I thought I was going to start losing my baby weight but my postpartum depression got in the way of that. I decided when my son was 10 months old I was going to do something about it. I lost 50 pounds in 4 months. The bottom left picture is when I started over again on March 9th, 2012. I was more determined than ever. A month before the picture was taken, I was in a hospital bed getting prepped for throat surgery. When they set the chart on my bed and stepped out for a second, There was a huge yellow sticker that said “OBESE” in unholy bold black letters. Before they put me under anesthesia I thought to myself, “I will make sure I never see that on my medical chart ever again, and once I recover I’m going to fix this.” So once I got the okay from the doctor to exercise I have been going since! That only leaves the picture on the right, which is my tummy currently.. Stretch marks, loose skin, and all. I am 106 pounds down and I have 16 left until my first goal weight, but I have already achieved the ultimate goal..I am no longer considered “obese”. How did I do it? I watch WHAT I eat and HOW MUCH I eat. I fuel my body properly. I exercise regularly. I indulge every now and then. The one thing I didn’t do though, was give up on myself.
