Back in the saddle
Monday, December 16, 2019
I first lost weight on SparkPeople between 2004-2007. I got to my highest weight: 180 lbs/size 18 then went down to 136 lbs/size 8 and became a model. However, back then I was in a controlling relationship, and it was easier to be motivated by someone who took it upon himself to be my physical trainer.
Now I have five things working against me: age, food allergies, a car, and a loving husband who cooks only vegetarian meals (that’s marriage and vegetarianism in one). I gained 30 lbs on the same diet where he lost 30 lbs. so he has no motivation to change his diet. I’m back to my highest weight, but now I look pregnant instead of rotund: 180 lbs/size 14. This time my belly is large, and not my face. I have no stairs to climb, no public transportation to use, no way to get vegetarian protein that I’m not allergic to, no job that requires physical activity, can’t use my Apple watch as a pedometer because I’m allergic to nickel, and very little drive because when I got married, I had to adjust myself to his pace so I wouldn’t overwhelm him. Wish me luck.
The pic attached is of me last month (November 2, 2019).
