Did you know that the average person will gain 7lbs between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day?
Here is my situation: Within the past year and half, I lost 25lbs. It is amazing what breakups can do for your body. Forget about “Milk does a body good.” I say, “Breakups do a body good.” Ok. I know it is not the healthiest way to lose weight but depression does that to you. So I lost 25lbs and gained back five after my thyroid surgery, which is to be expected. My weight will always be fluctuating for the rest of my life since I am missing that one important organ that regulates your metabolism. Lucky me! Anywho, the five pounds was no big deal to me because I was stuck there for months. Five pounds is the window I allow myself because it is an easy amount to lose. But now that Thanksgiving has come and gone AND given my opening statement AND the fact that I am thyroidless…I have gained another 2lbs. You do the math. This puts at a weight gain of 7lbs which is a no no in my weight obsessed world.
Yes, I am obsessed. Why? A year and half ago, I was not happy with who I was as a person, a girlfriend, a friend, a sister, a daughter. Yes, there were other circumstances going on in my life that I was depressed about. That is a whole other blog to be discussed at a later date or NEVER! But I never want to weigh what I did back then. I didn’t want to look in the mirror. And forget about going shopping. Nothing I tried on looked good! I was…simply put. FAT! For being 5′ 1″.
I am going to do something about this 7lbs with or without my little friend I like to call a thyroid. I went to the gym today after a two month hiatus. And guess what?
I love having sore stomach muscles!
