I was "skinny" my whole life. People were constantly saying that I looked unhealthy, asking if I was anorexic, saying "oh, my god, you are SO skinny". I hated it! I felt abnormal.
I was 100 lbs (5'3" tall, 22 yrs old) when I met my hubby. He was big into body building and I was big into not (I have never been athletic - no coordination/balance). He hates the way I cook (too much butter and salt) and decided that he should take over the task. My downfall began with his carb-loading. The year I turned 25 I noticed that I was looking a bit doughy. At 125 lbs, I figured that I just needed to tone a bit. I planned to start working out after Christmas. Then I found out I was preggers. I ballooned up to 175lbs throught my pregnancy. I was 150lbs after delivery. It took me 4 years to get back down to 130lbs. I was on Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, diet pills, you name it!
No sooner had I reached a weight that I was happy with, when I ended up preggers again! Ballooned up to 190lbs, 160lbs post delivery (almost 4 years ago). I've been struggling ever since. Again, feeling abnormal!
I did the Atkins thing, the Southbeach thing, the points thing. I'm making very little progress (159.5 this morning). I have decided that a balanced diet and exercise is the way to go (duh!). So this brings me here. I wanted to know what, exactly, I'm putting into my mouth.
I am truly looking forward to taking advantage of all the support and information at this site. Wish me will power!
