I know I look very skinny, but I was so happy being skinny (this picture was when I was 15) I felt so confident with my body, I felt so happy, I used to walk around in the summer in a crop top and mini skirt as I was so comfortable! Now in the summer I wear baggy things to hide how I look.
Just after my Gonadectamy they put me on Estrogen, and I noticed that I gained weight, alot of weight, I went from 8 stone (before my Gonadectamy) to 13 stone in 2 years! It was such a change I felt awful, I felt ugly, I REALLY hated my body! I tried to hard to loose the weight I had gained, but the estrogen seemed to not let me. Just under a year ago I changed to Testosterone! Ever since I have been able to loose weight, but the final push that really helped was getting out of my old relationship, as I felt so down I was not eating properly I would come home and eat 4-5 kit kats a few packet of crisps and something rubbish like chicken nuggest for dinner!
I was in a bad place.....Here is me just after I got out of that relationship
It also shows I did so much more after getting out of the relationship!
At that time I was 13 stone 3 pounds!
I have been loosing weight since, only drinking water and fruit juice, trying to eat as healthy as possible, cut out as much junk as possible and try to do 45 minutes of walking a day. I know it isn't much exercise but due to where I live and the fact I can't drive I am unable to do any sort of fitness thing due to the bus timetable, and the fact I have to rely on others. I know that's just another excuse and all but one day I will try and get to do MORE exercise! I don't often have much energy due to the fact I feel I need more hormones then I am getting, but that I can only sort out at my next hospital appointment in October.
So here are some pictures since....
The first two pictures are of some clothes that I ordered after my normal clothes were starting to hang off me. None of my jeans fit me any more, they are all hanging off me as if they are for two people.
I had lost 1 stone and 3 pounds in this picture
And I have finally been able to fit in to a SIZE 12 mini skirt! (I was size 16 in October)
I ordered a Superdry skirt this week, it is size 14, but with Superdry all their clothes seem to be one size smaller than they actually are if that makes sense?
But from this picture you can see I have lost more weight! I have not weighed myself in a few weeks so I cannot give you an update but I just wanted to show you my most recent picture!
I checked my BMI the other day, when I started I was in the OVERWEIGHT category at 28.7! I am still in the OVERWEIGHT category, but I am 26! and the maximum healthy BMI for my height and all is 25!!! I am so close!!!
I will give you another update in a few months! But I am determined to loose my stomach and muffin tops by birthday!!! Wish me luck!!!
