In high school, I went through the "normal" body image struggles. I solved that by starting a diet of animal crackers and tootsie rolls. Brilliant, eh? Ok, I have no idea why I thought that would help me lose weight. Regardless, I was a stick, so the whole thing was truly stupid (and shamefully unhealthy).
I'm not someone that's obsessed with THE NUMBER. In fact, I never know my weight. I rely on my favorite jeans. If they're snug, OOPS.
When I was pregnant, my midwife kept track of my weight, though we're not completely sure what it was before I was pregnant. Suffice to say, I gained over 40 pounds.
20 of those pounds are GONE BABY GONE! That was easy :) Err... wait, I had to give birth to lose that weight... guess that was NOT easy!
So, now I'm left with 20+ pounds of extra. Yesterday I was filling out a medical form which had a tiny line for my current weight. No fair! I needed a paragraph-sized space so that I could EXPLAIN about just giving birth and needing a year to return to a healthier weight! I refuse to buy new clothes (and am not so fond of my reflection), so the weight has to go. Here's my new diet plan: drink 2 cups of coffee in the morning which wakes me up AND suppresses my appetite. BRILLIANT!?
Do you have any other brilliant weight loss techniques that you're willing to share?
