This proves that my weight problem now is lack of enough exercise. 4 years ago (before having my 2 girls) I had worked in a bakery for 2 years (5 hours each day, 3 days a week). This bakery sold hot foods including pastries, pasta's, stews, toasted items & cold foods such as sandwiches, rolls, trillions of cakes & biscuits that we baked right there in the bakery. I worked there for about 2 year & with in the first 4 months of working there, I had dropped 18kilo's. I never gained that weight while I worked at the bakery. I was 88 kilos & dropped down to 70kilo's, & do you know why? Because I was that busy on the days that I worked, that I didn't stop for a second. If I wasn't serving customers, I was filling cabinets with all the yummies, If I wasn't doing that I was cleaning floors, tables, dishes, etc. or walking down the back of the shop to get supplies or walking to the front of the shop to serve customer or wait on tables. Without a word of a lie I was on the move from the moment I got there until the moment I left, & I loved it...So without even noticing it, my body was constantly burning the calories. I would come home from work & start my house work etc, run around after my husband & our son (who is 18 now) & look after all the pets. I was so busy all the time & didn't even notice how physical I was.
I am a stay home mum looking after our 2 little girls I am still on the move running around after the little ones as well as running a house, but that must not be enough for me to burn the calories like I use to...But how Ironic is it that the most weight I ever lost & the easiest it was to loose, was when I worked in a bakery.
