OMG! How did I get THIS fat!!

37 y/o mother of 3 (12.10 and 5 mos) work full time from home. I also travel quite a bit for work (internationally) so following a food pla n is not always been easy.

I'm a very young at heart 37 y/o. However this past year has been a disaster for me physically. I had an extremely difficult pregnancy (gestational diabetes, PreEcplampsia and HBP)Thankfully I managed to only gain 10lbs during the entire pregnancy. I had nightmares that I would put on an additional 50lbs as I had ...

I'm a very young at heart 37 y/o. However this past year has been a disaster for me physically. I had an extremely difficult pregnancy (gestational diabetes, PreEcplampsia and HBP)Thankfully I managed to only gain 10lbs during the entire pregnancy. I had nightmares that I would put on an additional 50lbs as I had done with my 2 boys and that would have pushed me into the black hole of obesity forever. Due to my health, I had to be induced at 35 weeks and my daughter spent a few days in the NICU since her lungs were not fully developed. (yes I blame myself for this)

Recently I was also diagnosed with HBP (176/106) and put on medication for it. I also am currently dealing with Cervical dysplasia (early stage cervical cancer) Can you see I'm just completely STRESSED out of my face!

And there we have it boys and girls, I am 100% convinced that I'm am so stressed out that my body is refusing to work properly. The weight, the BP the cancer etc. So for me I beleive it will go hand in hand. Loose the Stress, Loose the weight. Lose the weight, Loss the Stress.

Now, if I could only go live in a cave in Siberia all these things/people that stress me out wouldn't be an issue. But seeing as that's not going to happen I'll have to find some alternative remedies.

Exercise, Meditation, Yoga, Crack (kidding)

I also love clothes. I'm a clothes horse and a fashion diva. Sadly (or not) the "hip" clothes they make for us fat girls just looks ridiculous and I'd rather not wear them. I pretty much have 1 pair of jeans and 1 pair of Chico pants that fit me. I'm yearnign for the day I can open all those boxes in my attic with my "skinny" clothes and wear them all again. Or better yet walk into any store I want and look good in the clothes they have.

In the past I was a girl that always turned heads...I was once told by a guy "you ooze sexy" (and no I don't think it was a cheesy pick up line) It just WAS/IS the way I am. But under all this fat, nobody really looks at me (ok occassionaly someone will check me out in my car cuz they can't see my FAT ASS) No one holds doors for me or offers me any courtesy. When I was preggo, I often wondered if people even realized I was preggo and not just fat.

Well all of that is going to CHANGE. I cannot take it anymore. I am going to reclaim my inner diva. Starting....

Next week.

Welcome to Gastric Bypass! You should really take the pictures so you can look back on your journey. You can check out mine, if you care to. You’ll find plenty of support and encouragement here. No question is too stupid to ask, so post away and we’ll all put in our two cents worth. Utilize all the tools SP has to offer. I find tracking my food and exercise most helpful. Good luck on your weight loss journey!

Linda
