Weighing In!

Anyone that has known me for a long period of time knows that I am a petite girl who has been skinny her entire life. I have been accused more times than I care to count of having an eating disorder or having some type of sickness. I have learned to let it slide and ignore the comments made by others because those who truly know me understand where I stand on the whole "weight issue".

I have been working hard lately to pack on the pounds because I need to gain some weight after losing pounds that I really can't afford to lose. I'm underweight as it is so losing weight is not good in my case. It's an issue that I have struggled with for as long as I can remember.

Recently my Doctor switched some of my medicines around and put me on something that helps with depression/anxiety and the side effect is weight gain. In my case this is "killing two birds with one stone". I am getting better mentally while adding weight which is great for me physically!

I am proud to say that I am at 90 pounds today and just a week ago I was 76 pounds! Yes, I said it, SEVENTY SIX (76) pounds. When I get stressed or overly anxious I tend to lose my appetite....most have the opposite problem. I had let so many stresses from the outside world that I let my body slip away to a measly bag of bones. Seriously.

So, I am jumping up and down at the fact I have gained weight! Go me!!


  1. Yay!!!! Any pounds I shed I will send them in a care package to Albany. I'm so happy for you Jamie this is wonderful news!!!! YES!!!!!!

  2. I'm with Brandie - I'll send you my extras. ;-) Seriously, GREAT NEWS!!! And can't wait to pack on a few more tomorrow at TCS together!!! :-D

  3. Congrats to you!!! Keep up the great work!! :)
