I'm back 6 years later *facepalm*

Saturday, July 13, 2019

I've been yo-yo dieting off and on for 6 years. We ended up doing infertility treatments for 3 years and it wreaked havoc on my body with nothing to show for it. I was put on a steroid called dexamethasone and it causes intense weight gain. I ran every day and was on a strict gluten free, sugar free diet. I gained 10 lbs every month anyways. I gained 30 lbs in that time. After 4 months I got pregnant and then lost the baby and decided to take a break from all of that and try to lose the weight. Shortly after that, my mom passed away from cancer and exactly a year and 2 days later my father passed away from cancer as well. I lost about 20 lbs during that time from being so depressed and not eating. I managed to gain it back over the last few years and now I'm stuck at 193 again. Here's my most recent before and present day photo. I do taekwondo and go swimming almost every day with my son but I know that I need to be doing more and eating better.
