About My Opening Statement
Tuesday, April 09, 2019
A member from another page stopped by and read my profile, which if anyone has been to my page would see this as my opening...
Afternoon Everyone. I'm a first timer at weight loss. Until recently I've always had the reversed problem. Since I've given up smoking and at the on set of menopause, it's seems as if I went to sleep in my body and woke up into a whole other one. So I'm going to need a bunch of help with this, because honestly I'm at a complete loss.
In the nicest of ways she was letting me know that I might want to change the opening, depending upon how resent it may have been. As of June 30 of 2017 I weighed in at 102.2 pounds at my local clinic. I was 46 years old then. I've fought my whole life to gain weigh, from starting out as a preemie and all the way through.
So what changed? I gave up smoking. My doctor said to me that if I would cut back on my smoking he would bet that I would gain weight. So I started that very next day instead of smoking two packs I would cut it down by five cigarillos. - anyone who doesn't know what that is, it's cigars that look just like cigarettes. So my 40 a day habit turned into 35 a day. A month later I went back to the doctors and gained 2. pounds. I cried literally, over that long awaited victory of just 2. pounds. Before I left and lots of time spent talking, my doctor gave me a downloaded version of Allen Carr's Easyway to Stop Smoking to my web account. And it worked. Except for the part of not gaining extra weight. Mostly I think that is my fault.
Every time that part of the segment would come up, I would remind myself that I did want to gain weight. I was so tired of being tiny, little, or just being looked at like I was so fragile. Aren't you afraid your dogs will hurt you? Your so small and there so big. I hated it so much. And now I miss it.
A year later I would join Sparks. So I could learn how to eat to lose weight instead of gaining it and to exercise for the same reasons. It has still been a huge struggle for me, only now in reverse to drop the few pounds here and there.
