For the vast majority of my life I have been extremely overweight.
It wasn’t until I was forced to take a glance in the mirror that I decided it was time to lose some of that weight.
My physician and nurse told me that I needed to lose weight if I ever wanted to have a baby, but I thought they were being ridiculous. I knew women who were a lot bigger than me plus they had no difficulties becoming pregnant plus having a healthy child. I couldn’t figure out why I was so different. They insisted that I had to lose fifty pounds or I was never going to get pregnant. I knew that I wanted to be a mother plus I was to the point that I was willing to do almost anything, including giving up the foods that I loved so much. Six weeks later, I was down nearly sixty pounds plus I found out I was pregnant. I knew that pregnancy was going to change my system but I didn’t have a clue that losing the weight was going to be easier than the pregnancy. I was throwing up all of the time. I was told that I would mind the heat plus that I may have heat flashes. Instead of heat flashes, I was always feeling cold. The doctor told me it was because I had lost so much weight. I was now turning off the air conditioner plus wrapping up in blankets. My spouse turned up the AC when I turned it off so he and I ended up with a battle over the thermostat setting. Instead of continuing to be in disagreement over the AC, she bought me a couple of flannel shirts so that I would have something to snuggle into.
