Little FAT Me

I work full time and I barely have time to breathe. In 2005 hurricane Katrina rearranged my life, since then I have gained roughly 80-90 pounds. I believe that it started in depression and became an addiction. I have started and failed many diets and then decided that MAYBE if I combine diet and exercise with blogging and shopping I might be able to find success. This is the story of 2010 and my struggle to rise above addiction, pain, depression and fat.

The road to MY PERSONAL goal BMI/weight!

Staying warm!

In 2005-06 after hurricane Katrina, I found myself living a little further north than I am used to. (Not hard as I am a bayou baby from WAY down south!) Of course, as with 99.9% of EVERYTHING I owned, I has lost my coat to the storm. So that Christmas my mom bought me a coat. I had gained 30 pounds from September to December (yeah, I know) and my coat was a size 16. A year later (Christmas 2006) when I went to put it on I took off the waist tie because it barely tied. The next year I stopped buttoning it. Last year I wore it and almost cried because it would not even close. I just could not bring myself to buy a new one. Honestly because I DID NOT want to go shopping for a new coat – I mean how much would a tent size coat cost? Well, this last week it has gotten COLD and I had just dropped my poor, abused, busted and thrown to the bottom of the closet coat off to be cleaned. Of course when I got it back it was hot again and I hung it in the way back. Today, it is FREEZING and I put my coat on with dread. (Even though I know I lost weight I am always surprised by it!) My coat FITS! It is wonderful and it wraps around me! I think I am going to the wedding stop to pick up a light blue sash to use as a new waist tie! Thank God! I am SO excited. Everyday it’s like something new inspires me and reminds me that this “hard work” is not THAT hard when I consider the rewards!

  1. You look incredibly tiny in that coat. You may need to shop for a smaller coat soon. Maybe you should wait until next winter...can you imagine what size you'll be in then?
