Hi, thats me, hot Emma on a party 2005, 37 years old.
Yeah, I wasn’t really thin than but it was still in a normal range. Even then, I wanted to loose 10 kilogramms to be like before I had my kids. I tried pretty much every diet that came along, Atkins, low carb, hormon, etc. p.p..
Guess what, my diets led to this:
Terrific, hm? That is me today, with 45, high noon. Isn’t it enough to get old? Do I have to be also fat? And, be glad that you don’t see me naked! I photoshopped kind of a dress on to spare your feelings.
I put on 18 kilogramms. Overweight on the step to obesity.
For a long time, I didn’t realize, that it is this bad. Yes, the trousers did not fit anymore, neither anything else. But my face looks ok. So I concentrated on this.
But in March I went to Indonesia for 3 wonderful weeks. Everything was so excing and overwelming, that I often forgot to eat or had no time. When I returned home to Berlin, Germany, I thought I must have lost some weight. Undounted by death I searched for my scales,stepped on and…
After I woke up flat on the bathroom floor and as the shock cooled of, something told me, I had to do something. But what? Didn’t I try every diet and haven’t I eaten very little, walked around the whole day besides swimming and yoga for three solid weeks? Didn’t I realize that I put on weight even from looking at the chips bag?
It wouldn’t be so bad if I would not be single. A spouse you have for good and for bad, for light and for burdensome times. But like this. Who would care to take a look at me? I sank deep in frustration.
Like always, I sat down in the kitchen with a pot of hot tea, and pondered about what to do. When there didn’t show the slightest bit of a solution, I gave in and took a look in the fashion magazine Grazia to relax. There it was, a story of a women, who lost weight with the „fast diet“ from Dr. Michael Mosley. Somehow it felt like the last exit before I would really loose myself in that massiv body. Last exit before I loose my happy life with dancing, going out with friends, having fun to this couch potato I became, because its so straining to lift that body.
So, here I am on my way to get my body back to were I felt healthy, flexibel and sexy.
