Needless to say after high school the weight returned, all 30lbs. I was driving now and walking was usually reserved for taking the dog out for a walk around the block. My problem was that I was still eating as if I was still walking/biking 4-12km. 5 years later I lost 25lbs, moved and got married. My weight stayed constant until baby #1.
Once I could resume exercising I did. Baby #1 was VERY colicky and a buggy ride was sometime the only thing that would calm her down. By the time she was 6 months old I had pushed our buggy around so much that we needed new wheels! The week I finally got back to my pre-pregnancy weight I found out that baby #2 was on the way!
I was very careful about my diet. I purchased a pregnant workout video and did it daily, sometimes twice a day and I kept on walking. My sciatica issues returned but not nearly as bad this time. This second time around my weight gain was only 30lbs and I was back in shape and toned up in about 8 months.
Never fear, the weight found me again. The kid's are older and independent now. We purchased our first computer and I spent a lot of time on it taking courses from my local college and starting this blog. I also sustained a shoulder injury that put me out of commission for 6 months. Very slowly the weight crept back. Over the next 7 years I put back on 20 lbs. I was cleaning out my closet and found some pants back from the 124lb days. I can't pull them up over my thighs EEEKKK!
That was my breaking point. Enough is enough. Enough with the jiggly bum, and good-bye flappy underarms. I'm done with you!
Come back tomorrow to read about me, WeightWatchers.ca and how I'm doing.
