How the journey started

This is me…. heavily pregnant.  Maybe 8 months.  It is actually the only photo I have of me pregnant- 101 kg.  I more or less retained this size after giving birth.  I remember having a complication 10 days after giving birth and I had to go to hospital.  On arrival, the nurse who was attending to me asked me if I had come to give birth.  Really??? I had a 10 day old son.

I went back to work after 4 months and I could not fit in any of my clothes. I was a social, party animal before getting pregnant but I was relegated to staying home or going to work as none of my size 12 clothes could fit me anymore.

I remember one evening we were raving to go out. I showered and started getting ready but nothing could fit, absolutely nothing.  My husband came to check on me to see if I was ready and found me in a flood of tears. I had to do something…..

So I first gave out all my size 12 clothes and my shoes (oh, did I mention that I went up two shoe sizes after giving birth).  My lucky sister benefited from this donation.  I then bought size 18 and 20 clothes that could fit me and decided to do something.  My gym story starts here…..
