gained and lost about 80 lbs during and after pregnancy-did not have to work too hard at it.
i went on ad's about 9 or 10 yrs later and even though i became more active than ever before, backpacking, skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, lots of outdoor activities frequently, i put on almost 100 lbs over several years. no matter what i do i cannot take it off. i cannot control the binging. i do it when i am down, and sometimes when i am up. i dont know what gets it going. it can last a day or intermittently for weeks. i am so ashamed that i let myself get here, but i am absolutely weak when it comes to resisting the urge.
when i am not binging i eat very healthy. i hate to take the time to cook but if it is simple i will. well, i used to. for the last year or so we have been eating out so often because i was too depressed to cook. but i love fish, fruit, poultry, meat, and all cooked and raw veggies.
the foods i crave are generally pastry. i dont know how to deal with retraining my brain after 30 yrs of indulgence. i guess admitting it to my pdoc first. when i can get in.
