As I've mentioned in a previous blog, I have lost 30 lbs. five times. However, it has been almost 14 years since I have dieted. I guess after gaining the weight back 4 times, I kind of gave up.
My son is 18 and my daughter is 14, so neither of them have ever seen me at my current weight. In fact, no where near my current weight. I have been a size 16/18 for as long as my daughter has been alive. After losing 45 lbs, I'm now a size 12 and will most likely be a size 10 by summer.
At my heaviest, I would joke with my friends and say, "this isn't really how I look. This is just my temporary body". "I'm not normally this heavy". However, inside I knew that this chubby body of mine is really how I looked. And it's how I looked for a very long time. Even most of my friends who I've known for over 10 years never saw the real me. Only the temporary me. Not to mention my husband who married me at a size 14.
Well, I hope that my children, husband and friends weren't to attached to the old temporary me. Because my new permanent body is here to stay!
