My weight loss journey

Thursday, May 17, 2018

Since I’m still in my first week here I thought I would talk a little about my journey so far. When in high school I was Anorexic. By the time I graduated I was 5’3 and weighed 95lbs. Shortly after I graduated I found out I was pregnant. The doctor put me on steroids and a special diet one because of being underweight and two because of multiple vitamin deficiencies. I gained 65lbs during my pregnancy. After I gave birth I lost the baby weight pretty quickly and for once was at a healthy weight for my body at that point I weighed around 140. For years I was able to manage my weight. In 2013 I married my husband and we became pregnant on our honeymoon. Unfortunately it wasn’t meant to be because at 12 weeks we lost our angel. I fell into depression and started gaining weight. Since then I have had two beautiful boys but I have also continued to gain weight and battle with depression and anxiety. After I had my youngest son I was at my heaviest at 190lbs. It’s been 21 months and I’m now down to 180lbs. I’m tired of battling my body over food. So I’m here to get help so I can win this war and be the healthy mom my family deserves. I look forward to getting to know each of you so we can help each other along our journeys.
