I am the Queen of Weight Gain


Have you been scouring the internet, looking for the perfect way to gain an excessive amount of weight? Well search no more.... I have all the answers you need!

Seriously though, the other night I was out to dinner with The Big Man and BFF (the night before we started our diet) and I calculated that I have put on 16 kilos in the last 6 months. A very scary realisation for me.

The past 6 months has been full of turmoil and I spent the best part of it in denial about the fact that I am suffering from depression and anxiety. The main reason that I wouldn't see the doctor about it was that I didn't want to admit failure. The second biggest reason was that I felt so guilty about the way I was feeling, when I have so many good and exciting things happening in my life right now.

A major side-effect of my emotional roller coaster was that I started a crazy cycle of comfort eating and drinking, which would lead to me getting angry at myself, which would send me straight back to the fridge.

Now that I have (finally) been honest with my doctor I am on the mend mentally and I feel like I am now in a great position to get myself back in to shape. Hence the diet.

I know it is not going to be easy, but this morning when I was craving a bacon and egg mcmuffin (just typing that is making my mouth water) I worked out that if I keep up my weight gain I will break the hundred kilo barrier by Christmas this year. Right now that is definitely enough motivation for me to stay away from McDonalds!

Wish me luck!

Until you've lost weight while pregnant then gained weight while breastfeeding - you've got nothing! But seriously, you can do anything you set your mind to. If you want to lose weight, you will! :o)

{{{HUGS}}} I TOTALLY know how you feel. Hang in there - you can do this (cos if you can then I can).

hwpp - I gained weight while I was breastfeeding too. :(

Remember, McD's isn't real food anyway, and (non-)real food sold to you by a clown JUST ISN'T RIGHT SOMEHOW. I don't know how exactly, but it just isn't. Hey, good luck and best wishes. You can do it!

Hwwp - Thank you J, you are very sweet and supportive... Although I am not looking forward to pregnancy and breastfeeding as much now! x

Lightening - You are the person that motivated me to write a blog post that wasn't all sunshine and roses. I was scared to be completely honest, but inspired by how well people respond to your honesty. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Thisguygoug - I will definitely be keeping clowns in mind next time I crave McDonalds! A very good point and thanks for your encouragement, I appreciate it :)
