In short, 2011 and 2012 were the hardest two years of my life. After getting to my lowest weight ever, 251, I have gained over 90 pounds in two years. I now weigh 344.
But, I'm not truly upset about it. I know why I gained all the pounds. I was pregnant twice in 2011. The first one, which resulted in a miscarriage of twins, I gained over 40 pounds. The second pregnancy, which resulted in a beautiful 10lbs 1/4 baby boy named Lucas, I gained the remainder 30+.
After I gave birth I gained the rest of the 20 pounds.
So there you have it. 90 pounds. No excuses. Yes, I went through a very personal battle with myself and life happened.
Now I stand before the mirror and I weigh 344. And I'm not lamenting on how I weigh 251 two years ago. I'm moving forward. I have already returned to the gym. I have already cut some nasty food habits from my life and water has returned.
Baby steps. So I'm not sitting here feeling sorry for myself. I'm going to take my 344lb pound butt to the gym right now.
And looking forward.
