6 months back I had a baby boy and after delivery my weight reached 83kgs and with a height of 5 feet 1 inch, I started hating myself. I didn’t feel like going outside seeing my weight. I never thought I would grow so big in my life.
But now I accepted myself the way I am. I also know why women are overweight after marriage and men don’t put on so much(my husband looks the same even after 10 yrs of marriage..does his workout daily n maintains his six pack)….my cousin told me he looks like my son…..happy that he is healthy and fit. First pregnancy gifted me 10 kgs of weight and second gifted me another 10 kgs. Thanks to both my kids 😊….and I really don’t know how to lose it…If I lose it also i gain it back…thanks to my metabolism
One year prior to my pregnancy i had severe leg pain and Dr said it’s osteoporosis. I said I am just 35yrs. Dr said it can happen at any age. Started with my calcium and vitamin D supplements. I know why this problem started for me at such an early age.
I was overweight by the age of 12 yrs by eating all kinds of junk and healthy food. I was unhappy with the way people started calling me giving me names. I started my diet at age of 12 yrs, by completely reducing the amount of food that I need to eat. Sometimes 1 to 2 rotis a day. I lost weight. I was accepted by the society but it affected my health. I had difficulty sitting in the classroom. Severe back ache. Now I feel I would have been taller, my bones would have been in much better state if I ate well at that age. Also my metabolism would have been better. For acceptance from whom did I do all this which ruined my health. So stupid of me. All my life so many hours, so much of energy I wasted on losing my weight. Wish I kept this time and energy on something useful.
Wish I accepted the way I was at that age. So now I think about eating healthy and doing my daily exercise rather than concentrating on becoming thinner.I have no interest in making society accept my size now. I also bought new clothes that fit me. Wish I did this before. I think I should be more worried about what kind of improvement is happening in my life rather than wasting my time in comparing myself with a movie star or my neighbour. This eating healthy program which I started at home slowly changed my parents and grand parents lifestyle also. Their sugar levels came down. Amount of medicine they take is reducing. Which is a good sign. Thanks to Meera for joining me on this diet.
Parents please don’t allow your children to do any crash diets. If they want to lose weight tell them to play a sport. It’s the age for them to build their bones. Don’t be friends with your children when it comes to food (I did this Mistake also with my first child). Make them eat healthy. Don’t allow your kids to make the mistake I made.
