Okay, That’s it. I have 3 days to lose 3 lbs before my feeding frenzy begins all over again.
I can count the times I gained weight: 1. During a part time summer job at a fast food restaurant, 2. A fun-filled summer vacation in Italy and 3. During my pregnancies where I tipped the scale at 183 lbs.
The weight came off, the first time, soon after I quit that summer job. I took a size 6 in the uniform and eventually grew out of it. I had to wear a t-shirt under the uniform because I couldn’t button it.
The second time I tried to lose weight, I decided to take up smoking. People who quit smoking gain weight, right? Well, I figured, if you start smoking then you’ll lose weight? Wrong! So, I ended up being an overweight full time smoker!!! I tried all kinds of diets. Nothing worked. The more I was told I couldn’t eat, the more I wanted too. Once I started school and found a part time job in fashion retail, I lost the weight.
The third time was a bit harder. I had stopped smoking and nine months later I gave birth. Soon after, I got pregnant with my second child. I was eating less and taking walks with the boys. I joined a couple of different gyms. I would work out like a nut for three weeks and then just stop going. Then, I got pregnant with my third child. Luckily, I controlled myself and went up to 158 lbs. I was able to lose some of the weight by eating less and going up and down the stairs to check on the baby.
Follow me for the next three days as I begin the process of losing those 3 lbs so I can eat this holiday weekend!
