Almost To My Goal!!!!

Those who know me know I'm tiny. I'm just under 5'1" tall, though my license has said I was 5'2" since I was 15 and got it - and back then I was barely 4'11"! All my young life, I struggled to gain weight. I poured protein powder on almost everything I ate, and I ate a LOT. But I was so active, between soccer, rock climbing, hiking, canoeing, running, cheerleading, and riding horses that nothing I did could put the weight on. I graduated highschool at a whopping 83 lbs.

In college, I finally managed to get my weight up over 90 lbs for the first time in my life, and I felt great about that success. I finally evened out at about 92-95 lbs, which I maintained by eating a lot and exercising a lot all the way up until Hurricane Katrina. Post Katrina, I ate a lot, cried a lot, and didn't get any exercise other than slogging through flooded houses. My metabolism shut down. I noticed my clothes were getting tight, so I stepped on the scale about 3 months after the storm. 110 lbs! What the hell! But I had no energy or desire to do anything but eat, still, so I ballooned all the way to 117 lbs by May. In May, I finally got myself back together and started to feel sort of human. And I started working out. And I stopped living at Popeye's and eating a dozen biscuits in one sitting. And now, 2 months later, I have lost 20 lbs, WITHOUT STARVING MYSELF! I think my metabolism just decided to start up again, because it hasn't been particularly hard to lose the weight.

97 lbs. I fit in my clothes again. I'd love to get back to 92-95, but if I stay here, I'll be happy. I have definition in my abs again, finally! w00t!

Do not drop below the weight you have now.

You said yourself you had wanted to gain weight, pre-Katrina.

And honey, do I sympathize with how you gained any excess (?) weight. (you looked great to me)

Warning, everyone! MRE's are calorie laden battlefields! Delicious and intoxicating...

MREs are partly at fault for my weight gain ... 3 of those a day = 15,000 calories!!

You know, I have definition in my abs, too. They're defined as "that large area between what used to be my chest and what used to be my waist."

Or, EP, as a friend of mine said, "What you see is the protective covering for my six pack abs."
