I am a little naughty when it comes to eating, either it nothing or its too much of the wrong thing. I have YoYo'd for years trying to find that one miracle that would send me back to my thin days, to little to no prevail.
I am a happily married mother of 2 kids, 1 is 5yrs and the other is 2.
When I met my hubby in 2005 I was fresh off working on one of the Whitsunday Islands as an Activities Supervisor, I was lean, Tanned and HOT and only 60kg.
around 6 months later (still slim) I found out we were expecting our daughter. I behaved with my eating had a healthy baby in 2006 and only gained 11kg. However, as it does, S^&t happened and due to a medical error I was left with no metabolism and permanent fluid in my womb. The depression hit with a vengeance and I packed on the weight, thanks to the help of a metabolism of a 60yr old woman. By November 2008 when we wed, I was a whopping 95kg. (I still to this day cant look at my wedding pics with out crying) In Feb 2009 I joined 'Biggest Loosers' Online Club and managed to drop my weight to 81kg in 2 months on a strict VLCD. I then found out in April 2009 I was expecting again and had to stop my diet. I was lucky though as I was preggo's I lost even more weight (and I was not even trying, trust me I ate for 5 not just 2) and in Jan 2010 when I gave birth to my son I weighed only 70kg and LOOKED AWESOME, but the lime lite was short lived, I went back on the VLCD as I could not breast feed and in 1 month gained over 10kg.
I went to my doctor in August 2010 weighing 86kg and she put me on Duromine 15mg for 1 month and was surprised when I only lost 1kg, even still being on a VLCD and doing plenty of exercise, so she upped the dosage to 30mg but it too did nothing so she took me off it.
I have been continuing my VLCD and exercise and now in march 2012 I have no idea what I weigh (I would not let the doc tell me, but got him to write into my diary, i have not looked at it yet) and I am back on the Duromine. I plan to stay on the Duromine for a week before i look at the weight and then weigh my self and I will only do once a week weigh ins.
Today is Day 1 for me, So far I am on a buzz, heaps of energy (which is a first for me in a long time) dont feel jittery, am forcing myself to eat 6 small healthy meals, and drink heaps. I will check back in next friday for my weigh in.
