I’ve been through so much these past few years and it finally came to a climax on January 30, 2013. As a result, my weight has been all over the place! At the start of the year we were recovering from the flu so I wasn’t eating much. Then I started eating compulsively and couldn’t stop myself and I gained 7 pounds. Then tragedy hit and I lost 10 pounds in a week. Then in February I gained 2 of those pounds back. So far in March I gained yet 3 more pounds.
I’m still down about 14 pounds from where I was a year ago so that is success! I’ve lost (well, lost and regained tons but not talking about that!) about 18.5 lbs since I started this blog! Even through all the ups and downs I have kept off some of it and that is progress! I am borderline “normal” – by some charts I am normal, some I need to lose about 7 pounds.
I would like to weigh 125. I think that would be a good weight for me. So that’s about 14 pounds. I could totally do that by summer. I really don’t feel too fat right now. But I live in a land where most of the population is overweight so of course I look fine to most people. I never exercise and I know I need to be exercising daily! I know that would help me maintain a healthy weight. With all the stress and tragedy in my life I don’t want the added stress of fat on my body.
