Over the years my weight has gone up and down like a blinking yo-yo! Unfortunately for me every time pounds have returned to me they have brought some friends along with them resulting in my ‘heaviest ever’ weight being larger every year
When I got married in September 1988, aged 19, I weighed approximately 10 stone.
When I gave birth to my son in February 1992 my weight was approximately 20 stone.
Yes that IS right, in three years and five months I doubled my weight without really noticing, I know that sounds impossible but its true!
|Jan ‘04||24st 8lbs||Lightest in the year was 22st 1lbs.Started off juicing then lapsed.|
|Dec ’04||23st 11lbs||Over all loss in 2004|
|2005||On reductil early part of year, can’t remember when I came off that, I was weighed at the doctors 01/12/05 – heaviest 24st 7lbs! Down to 23st 4lbs by 29/12/05 so an overall lose, small but a lose.|
|23st 7lbs||Darn it … started at Doctor’s Healthy Living Club – got a ‘You are Obese’ letter from them – this was my weight!|
|20st 7lbs||Yeah lost 3st in 2006, at my lightest this year I was only 3lbs lighter & while it went up and down it never went back up to January ‘06|
|23st 7lbs||This is the next recorded weight … it was a stressful year, I left my husband in October ’07, it was a long time coming & even longer to sort out.|
|Here I spent a couple of years in denial, well I’ve spent most of the last two decades in denial in many ways.|
|25st 13lbs||Here is what I had written in my weight record“No idea size except well yeah 32/5xI went & got weighed cos my rings no longer fit!!! My dragon thumb ring & pentacle ring L , my glasses have worn a trench in the side of my face & the ankle boots I got for xmas wont fasten – this last stone or so has gone on fast!!! Must be stress re lack of divorce + weight made back bad so can’t walk so doing less so getting depressed so eating more = wicked sinful circle.
Have been v depressed this last 6 months.”
That is the Past!
The future started again on Wednesday 3rd August 2011 when I started Slimming World.
My weight then was 26st 5 ½ lbs … I survived that by my well favoured method of denial, I’ve not thought about what my weight it for the last seven months, I’ve concentrated on how many pounds I have lost, no not lost … thrown away!
