This morning I was going through photo albums with my girls and I realized I HAVEN'T been overweight my whole life. Rather I yo-yo'd from being healthy to chunky as a child and finally around 10-12 started rapidly gaining weight. Its strange to be under a wrong assumption ... About yourself.
So here is a photo timeline of my yo-yo from healthy to chunky to overweight to obese.
Even in my mom's belly I appeared to be huge!
I was really only 8lbs 2oz when I was born.
I was a normal if not extremely tall 1-2 year old.
3-4 I was still too tall and not skinny but solid.
When I was 3 my mom and I got in an accident. I shouldn't be here. The lower side of the smushed roof was where I was.
Still a normal sized 5-6 year old.
My sixth birthday. Dare I say I look thin?
My 7th birthday. The chunk starts.
My sister was born when I was 8. My mom gained 100lbs with her. I really started to gain also.
9 years old. The belly is growing.
At 10 we moved to Washington. My mom started divorce proceedings. I switched schools twice, my great gramma was diagnosed with cancer, we moved back to California, and my great gramma died all in the same year. Here I am amidst packing on the pounds.
8th grade promotion. Very near if not over 200lbs.
My 15th birthday. Sophomore year in high school. I had thinned out a little but not much.
Grad night. 230lbs. I felt thin.
My 21st birthday. Between 280-300lbs. I was horrified when I saw this photo.
Then I got pregnant with Buzzy.
Then I got pregnant with Breezy
370+lbs on the day of Breezys birth
Started this weight loss journey 5 months later at
Today. 1 year and nearly 1 month later. 270ish lbs. I've come a short way and have a long way to go.
This shirt was tight 55lbs ago
Breakfast was a whopping 180cals. Lunch will be around 280. Dinner the same which will add up to 940 plus burning around 600 cals at will give me a net intake of 340 max.
Next week there will be no binge and therefore no crazy need for compensation.
Now back to your regular programming ...
