I’m Janet. I grew up skinny. Now I’m fat. (Kinda reminds you of that song about the worms, huh? You know the one: Did you ever think when the hearst drives by, that you might be the next die? …. The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out. They eat your coat, they eat your hat. They crawl in skinny and crawl out fat!) But I digress!
This is the story of my “Battle of the Buldge”!
Current Statistics: 5’9″, current weight: 200 +-
Age 25 Statistics: 5’9″, weight: 136
My road to fat took many of the same turns yours did. There’s the “Just Married” weight that I didn’t fully understand was going to haunt me for the rest of my life. And there’s pregnancy weight that doesn’t go away. And there’s stress eating which tastes so good! There’s even the antidepressant weight. That’s the weight I gained after complainiing to my doctor that I couldn’t lose weight. He said “your depressed – take these little pills – it will help”. Oddly enough, it did help. They made me incredibly happy and then I didn’t care I was fat. I gained another 10!
I understand the frustrations. Even my doctor has told me weight loss is just simple math: Calories In minus Calories Out. I have written proof this formula isn’t true.
I’ve excerised blisters onto my inner thighs (where they rub together).
I’ve suffered through plantar fasciitis and bursitis.
After 15 years of dogged determination to be thin…. I’m still fat!
On this site I will share things I have tried and how they have worked for me. Feel free to leave your comments. Maybe if we put our experiences together we can win the battle together.
