I’ve struggled with my weight my entire life, but it really started to pick up again after having my 2 babies. It was like a snowball effect: I was battling with like postpartum depression and the stress of having had kids at a young age, then I tore my ACL and was a little immobile for a while. To add on to things, I developed blood clots in my legs which led to even more immobility & depression, plus I was in nursing school at the time.
I would try different diets here and there, but the weight never stayed off. I decided that I needed a different solution when I stepped on the scale one day expecting to have lost weight, but discovering that I gained 14 pounds.
