I have always been on the slimmer side…or to say I have always been the ” super figure” 🙂
The above sentence holded good until 2013 ,…SJ sobs sobs…
Now I have a paunch popping off my tummy and my bummy protruding and there is MRF tyre around my hips and my cheeks are more bubbly :-(. I have officially, lost the status of Super Figure ! My salwars have become tighter and when I visit Westside, when in india, my size has changed from M to Large…sobs sobs…
I dunno it it was the tropical climate in Singapore, where I used to sweat it out and be slim and retain my “Super figure” status but the UK weather has done me more harm that good (yah..blame it on the weather :))
The food in the UK has a part to play too. The freezy cold winters – keeps us at home all the time and the food choices I make here are wrong ones..the isles of chocolates and crisps don’t help either ( yah…blame it on the food)
My age is ticking as well…hence my metabolism has slowed down (Yah…again – blame it on the metabolism )
The true person to be blamed is me – Myself ! For all the binge eating, too lazy to do yoga …No exercise, no proper planning, taste buds that want to eat more cheesy and oily stuff , Desk job, Stress !
I was 56 Kgs at my wedding in 2006- After M was born and with all the breastfeeding for 2 years I was down to 54 kgs in 2009…I was 60 in 2013 ! Now, I weigh a whopping 70 Kgs ! It saddens my heart that all my efforts to loose the extra Kgs are short lived…I eat salad for lunch, by the time its dinner I have eaten atleast two bars of Kinder Bueno, a packet of chips, and some rubbish !
I dread my India trips, because who ever I see – Say S – you have become fat ! For my MIL, its a pleasure in saying ” S, nalla gundu ayidichu ” (S has become fat) in front of all the relatives and take a dig at me. I dread that moment !!!
It is just not about the good looks. It is more about the health too.
- At 34 years, I find I have to support my self to stand up after sitting down.
- I pant like crazy when I climb a series of stairs.
- I get a pimple occasionally on my face which proves my harmones are not balancing themselves
- I loose it and yell at poor M for no reason.
- Most importantly my periods are heavier than normal, during the second day my body aches and I feel so very uncomfortable with the heavy flow.
- Yaa…I look like a pumpkin waiting to burst out !
If an increase in 10 KGS in the past three years can affect me so much, I can imagine what more fat can do to my body.
This issue truly weighs me down !!!
