Granted the reason for my calorie increase was not a good one. I was preparing for my twins' birthday party. I made a ton of lollipops and cupcakes. I had to sample some to make sure they were okay. Well, maybe I didn't have to, but would you serve food you hadn't tasted?
Did you do the math? 8 years ago I weighed 172. A year ago I weighed 286. I actually gained most of that within a year! That's a 114 lb gain. Yikes. Thank you progesterone & estrogen. I stand by my claim that Provera is the devil in shot and/or pill form. So now I've lost 87 lbs of that regain.
- 199 lbs (Onederland)

- 195 lbs (Less than husband)
- 186 lbs (100 pounds lost)
- 172 lbs (weight I was at my last weight)
- 167 lbs / BMI 29 (No longer obese)
- 150 lbs - Goal Weight
The picture above is one that I took at my twins' birthday party. It was at the Science Center and there was a full length mirror, which I don't have at home, so I took full advantage of it. Quite honestly, I was surprised by how thin I looked. I'm also getting my curves back.
My jeans are baggy in the legs, loose around the waist but tight around the lower abdomen. I hope everything catches up because I hate it. It's awful and takes a lot to maintain so I don't get a rash or odor under the skin. It adds an extra 5-10 minutes to my shower time to make sure everything is completely dry plus adding any powder or anti-chafing gel that may be necessary.
I don't know if plastic surgery will be something that I'll be able to do, but if I have the opportunity I'll definitely consider it. If I wasn't so diligent with staying dry and clean I'd be having major issues with rashes right now. We'll see when that time comes.
