Takes a deep breath.......
I have been meaning to post these photos for ages, but have not quite got round to it.
But I figure it'll keep me honest!
Some background: I have always been on the curvy side (around a size 16), but have packed the weight on over the past 10 years. I was diagnosed with an auto immune disease in 1999 (sarcoidosis) for which I was on very high doses of prednisone (steroid) which sent my weight sky-rocketing.
I did lose weight in 2002 in preparation for trying to conceive, and got pregnant. I sadly lost that baby, and my weight shot up again.
I lost weight again in 2003 and fell pregnant again. Since then I have had 3 beautiful children in quick succession (in Feb 04, July 05 and Sept 06) and finished breastfeeding my youngest in November 07.
At the same time as I completed breastfeeding, I KNEW I really needed to address my weight, and this
is the photo that made me cringe!
I am not actually sure how much I weighed then (about 105kg is my guess?), but at my heaviest I have been 109.4kg, which was just after I gave birth to my youngest in Sept 2006.
I have been eating healthily since mid November 2007, and on Kate Morgan since early January 2008. I am currently 92.2kg.
This is what I look like at the moment:
To be totally honest, I am a little disappointed.....it doesn't seem to me that I LOOK any different??
Maybe its the clothes?! All my clothes are too big, and don;t show where I have lost cm's?
