It’s been a rollercoaster of a couple of years with my weight. I’ve gone from being a size 10 for the majority of my twenties to a 12, then back down to an 8, then back to a 10, then 12 again.
When I had to go on my medication a few years ago, my weight slowly increased and is still increasing. Side effects of being on medication I’m afraid. And as much as I hate how said medication has affected my once amazing metabolism, it’s something I just have to live with for another couple of years.
Today, I’m really unhappy with my weight. I’m a ‘healthy’ size 12 (weighing 72.5kg (11 stone 4)), however, I feel chubby and just not myself.
My weakness is chocolate and hot chocolates, I can’t go a day without eating and drinking them. For the most part I do eat really healthy, I have home made soups for lunch, then fish or chicken and salad or rice for dinner. But then I’ll snack on chocolate! But I keep questioning why I keep putting on the pounds every week when I do for the most part eat healthy.
Since I had my major endo operation, I was content with my weight, I weighed 8 stone 11 (a size 8). But the weight just dropped off of me because I was so ill. I stayed that weight for a couple of months, then put on two and a half stone in just four months.
I loved being a size 8, I felt comfortable in bikinis and denim shorts. Although, my husband thought I was too skinny.
As I can’t particularly exercise with a stoma, walking is all I can do at the moment. I hear some people with stoma have ran marathons and I just cannot, I feel like it’s going to come out really long and floppy lol. Anyway now that my puppy is vaccinated, we can go on 15 minute walks together. So that’s something I suppose.
I’m trying my best not to feel down about my weight, but I’d love to just stay a size 10 in my thirties. Why. Is. It. So. Hard?
I’ve started tracking my calories – trying to eat 1,440 a day, so, I will see how that goes and will update you on the progress. Also if you would like to see a what I eat in a day/week blog post, let me know!
I don’t know what the point of this blog post is, but maybe someone can relate to it? I just wanted to come on here and ramble and be real with you guys.
Have you had any weight struggles? Or are you completely content with your weight? I’d love to know in the comments below.
