I was tagged in a photo on Facebook today and could barely look at myself. I looked frumpy and fat. The truth is I have gotten fat again. I weigh the exact same as I did 10 years ago, but I wear the weight differently now. I used to gain weight all over with a concentrated area in the tummy. People would wonder if I was pregnant since I had a flap of fat over my 4-time c-section scar. On September 1, 2003 I started the diet/eating plan that at one point gave me a total weight loss of 44 pounds. I wasn’t at my lowest weight for long though, because I achieved that goal and then came back to the states for a 7 month stay 2 days later. I entered the country and gained 5 pounds! Just smelling the fried foods in the airport packed on a pound or two I think. In August of 2006 I had a tummy tuck and from that point on any weight gained either went to my boobs, legs or butt. My tummy stayed flat for the most part. My weight fluctuated by a few pounds for the next 3-4 years. In the last 3 years I’ve gained weight, but I haven’t really cared that much. I lost about 15 pounds this summer and I’ve managed to keep about 11 of those pounds off. I really need to do something, because my clothes aren’t fitting very well right now and I have no desire to go buy new, bigger clothes. And did I mention that I look frumpy! I have got to do something about that! I want to look fabulous! Working on that now.
Frumpy and Fat, my two least favorite F words
