Weight Gain And Weight Loss
I reached puberty and still had the same problem - too skinny. I was already in college and was still buying pants and other clothes off the pre-teens rack! I would always have my jeans re-fitted by a tailor or have to get a size meant for a 12 year-old kid. Imagine how tiny and slim I was then.
I got married and had a kid and still had the slim physique I had before. I started to balloon when I hit 35 and that was 5 years ago. Since then, my weight would fluctuate. It is a real yo-yo weight loss and gain for me. However, I noticed these past few weeks that it is a steady weight gain. Am I reaching menopausal stage? Are my hormones going berserk?
I am exercising and eating properly and yet, the scale still shows abominable numbers. I am too scared now to step on the weighing scale because the numbers are not right. Or I am in denial? Proof that I am gaining weight are my tight clothes. They are seriously getting tighter by the week. If I don't do something very drastic and serious then I will end up buying bigger sized clothes which I am not too happy about.
My friends are supporting me on my goal to lose weight for good health's sake. I am serious about it but I need constant reminders and a lot of prodding o help me get through. I think I am having withdrawal symptoms now. I crave food that I usually don' eat and when I eat them, I feel awful. I hope I can get over that phase. I just want to lose weight the healthy way.
I have a very long way to go. I hope I can make it through because gaining weight is easier now than losing weight. My body's not the same anymore.
