Withoin 3 years, following several emotional issues (divorce, reunion with my mother after 30 years of absence) I gained 12 kg (75 kg for 153 cm). I went from a size 40 to a size 46/48 and even 50. My whole appearance changed, my body swelled, I could no longer face my image in a mirror, I could not stand the eyes of others, I was moping and was slowly sinking into a depression.
My pulmonologist told me: "Ms., you excess weight is definetely a reason for your sleep apnea".
My doctor told me: "Ms., your joint pain is due to your overweight".
My mother told me : "My daughter, you are too big".
My children told me: "Mom, you have to lose weight".
Weight, weight, weight, it was always coming down to my excess weight. It had to stop!
I was in such a bad shape.
My doctor suggested it to me during a consult, as it was just being released.
What I found difficult: getting rid of my toxic eating habits, drinking 2 to 3 liters of water a day, learning again how to eat for myself and not to please others, perseverance. After 10 days, I had lost 3.6 kg and was already sleeping better. 3 months later, I was at -10.3 kg. I rediscovered the pleasure of walking, of cycling, in short, of being active! From a size 46/48 or even 50, I went back to a size 40/42. I felt I was getting my life back. My joint pain and eczema practically disappeared and I stopped my antidepressant in agreement with my doctor.
I now listen to my body needs. Today I know exactly what food to eat. The benefits for me: I became aware of overeating, I rediscovered a taste for flavors, I take the time to prepare and enjoy my food. I'm now chasing my ideal weight goal between 55 and 60 kg, but I still have time ahead of me. My shape has transformed. I'm finally taking care of myself. I discovered the pleasures of being active again!
