My name is Bek and I blog regularly at abaconflavoredlife.com. I've had a battle with my weight since I was 16. My body was fabulous until I got Depo. And then my metabolism shifted to neutral and I gained, and gained, and gained.
I lost it. And gained it. And lost it. And gained it.
I had a baby 18 months ago, and came home from the hospital a whopping 7 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight. By the time I went back to work, I was 20 pounds under my pre-pregnancy weight. And I was able to maintain that thanks to the best cardio on earth, breast feeding.
When I stopped breast feeding after a year, I was still able to keep it off. But then I went back on birth control. Six weeks later, I'm up 15 pounds. I haven't started eating entire pizzas, or whole tubs of ice cream, or eating sticks of butter. This is thanks to hormones yet again.
So I'm back at it. I'll follow my triumps and losses, my extreme productivity and the lack there of.
My goal is to lose a total of 60 pounds I hope you accompany me on this journey.
