So I'm new at this and a bit unsure what to do.... So I thought I'd just say hi and let you all know why I'm here.
A 22 year old South Australian.
My story basically goes like this, Ive always been a tad over weight since I started high school. I had a lot of time in the car to and from school everyday, over 4 hours in total. I spent a lot of that time eating and reading books. The reading continued after school as well so I became a little shy and withdrawn.
When I turned 15 I bought myself a horse. One of the best things I ever did. I did lose a fair amount of weight and became pretty fit. My family wasn't very suportive so at age 17 I gave my horse away because I was studding too much and didn't have time for my horse.
Again I became withdrawn. I finished high school. Went to uni. Hated the city so, I left and moved to Darwin.
Again I lost weight, mostly because food was so expensive lol.
After a year I moved home and met my husband. It wasn't long before we moved in together.... That's when I really started to put on weight. He's a wonderful cook but he's a big man that loves his meat and potatoes... Needless to say I also enjoy them =)
We got married in 2010 and I was about a size 16. I was pretty happy with myself but looking at the photos now I feel like I should have done more before the wedding =(
Anyway, we got pregnant with in weeks of the wedding and now we've got a beautiful 7 month old baby girl. I had issues with my pregnancy has I live on a country area and they would not deliver me because I was "high risk". They said my BMI was too high and that they weren't equipped for some one my size. That really upset me as I was feeling really good about myself until then. I'd lost weight in the first trimester and was smaller at 3 months then I had been before.
So after I had AJ I lost a lot of weight and was feeling great about myself. I was wearing clothes I hadn't worn in two years! But then it all went pear shaped. I got really sick, had to have an opperation and couldn't breast feed. Then I began gaining weight. In the last four months I've put on close to 20kg!!
As of today I've dicided to turn my life around and be a good role model for my daughter.
Sorry if this is long and drawn out but I feel like this is something I needed to do to point me in the right direction.
As of today I aim to lose 30kg to get my life back.
Hope this all makes sends coz I can't be bothered to go back and re read it to check it =D sorry you poor people that just read all that.
