About five years ago I was determined to have cupcakes for my birthday. But I couldn’t find them anywhere in Mexico City (now they are all over the place). So I decided to bake them myself.
The day I baked for the first time
I enjoyed baking so much that I decided to start baking for friends and family. Soon, people I didn’t know were asking me to bake for them, and I did. And so, my new business began. With my new career path also came some uninvited guests: a huge carb addiction, sleepless nights, and lots of pounds!
I got so heavy, but I just couldn’t stop! You know how every time you bake a cake it comes out from the oven so soft, so moist, and with a little dome on top? Well, I used to eat that dome, all the time, with every cake I made!! No wonder I gained so much weight. What’s more, my delicious confections also made Mr. Weather gain some weight.
We look so bloated. 🙁
So, when we got engaged, my lovely mom gave me the number of a doctor and told me to call him ASAP!
So I did. And from the moment I began the diet the doctor planned for me, I never even once ate something I wasn’t supposed to. I followed the diet to a T, which for someone in my line of work is reaaaally hard. I cried many times, and was cranky and resentful, but the results are so worth it! In the eight months that I’ve been on the diet I’ve lost over 50 pounds. I’ve gone from being obese to having a healthy weight. From a size 14 to a size 6, from having triglyceride levels of 189 to 96”¦I will never be super skinny, but I’m pretty happy with how I feel now.
Now comes the hardest part: keeping the weight off. But honestly I believe that the way I’m eating now, healthier and balanced, is the way to go. I even started exercising a bit, something that I’ve never done before. But still, I’m a bit worried”¦I just don’t want to fall off the wagon. How do you manage to keep a healthy lifestyle forever with all the temptations out there? Help!
