I'm 21, almost 22 yrs old. I'm 5ft 2in, an hour glass shape and I weigh 190. When I met my husband when I was 18. I was 125 pounds. I was toned, but my stomach was a little flabby and had stretch marks because I had just lost 70 pounds, to get down to 125.
My husband "then boyfriend" told me, to my face, I could stand to lose 20 pounds! So in a desperate attempt to keep him "because 125 was the lowest I'd weighed in my life", I exercised day and night, turned to anorexia but mostly bulimia and eating 400-450 calories a day.
Then I developed a thyroid problem and gained 60 pounds! I was 180 when I married my husband and I am 5 months pregnant now and 191-192. After I give birth I pray that breast feeding and exercise, along with HEALTHY eating, will get me down to 100-120. Becoming pregnant has gotten rid of my thyroid problem because now I eat 1200 calories a day and my doctor told me I only need to gain about 4 more pounds. "Thank God!" my son is normal sized and healthy!
And my husband who caused all this...has fallen in love with the big butt I developed from gaining 60 pounds.....men are a mystery!
