my weight has been up and down for years. In primary school i was a sick, i was soo skinny, i had migraines all the time, couldnt keep food down etc. I went on something to help with the migraines and then gained weight from there. I was not really over weight at high school but not slim either, (never used to weigh myslef back then)even at my skinny as a child i have always had a "tyre" of fat around my tummy. After school i got a bit down, i was really shy and coulnt find a job, and was out of my comfort zone and ballooned to 90 kg.
I found a job ( a 6 month youth for teh envronment program) and found alot about myself, confidence wise etc, and lots alot of weight, dont know how much, i never weighed myself.
After it finished, i took a while to get another job and gained a bit back but i then got my dream job on a flower farm (which turned into a night mare) but i got really sick with CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome )and dropped right down to 53 kg. whilst that was in my healthy weight range, i felt really unhealthy and skinny, too skinny to be honest! It just wasnt a nice time in any respect
after i left there and i started to get my health back again, i met my wondrful partner and we fell pregnant after a year and a half of trying. I was 60 kg when i was first pregnant, went back down to 53 kg with sickness, and then was around 73 at full term. To begin with i lost a bit of weight but as soon as i stopped breastfeeding at 4 months, i balloned to 85kg in a matter of weeks!!
Since then i have struggled with my weight, i walk almost every day and a few kms at that but never made changes to my eating habits and could never get below 80 kg, then i fel pregnant with PAtrick and went down to 73 kg due to morning sickness and at teh end was 85kg teh day i went inot hospital to have him. It ended after 11 hours of pure hell in an emergency ceaser, and in teh 7 dasy in hospital i lost 10 kg, down to 75 kg.
Once home i crept back to 76 kg and then found this sight and decided this was the chance i have to make a change and here i am, teh lightest i have been in a long time and not only walkign but also eating beter and trying to not only change my eating and weight but also the person i feel insde as well
sorry that was a bit long but thats my story
