my crazy PTSD journey (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

Update posted by Leonie Ralph On Jan 08, 2019

obese, morbidly obese (hate those words) but here I am.

used to be > fit, fab & happy < UNTIL .... until seven years ago and for some weird strange reason I started to eat and eat and eat, I gained 44 kgs in the first 10 months! AND there was MORE to come.... much more to come ...

I continued to grow, had so many blood tests, doctors blown away at my sudden explosive weight gain *sighs* cut a LONG story short I eventually weighed in at 133.5 kgs! Argh!

133.5 kgs = 294.3 LBS! far out ... scary stuff ....

so I have some 78.5 kgs (173lbs) to lose... have lost a few kgs so far so I'm on my way....

KETO and intermittent fasting is the only way to go for me. I've tried everything else. and being a HUGE meat eating kinda girl it helps to rock my world.

I'm only 5 feet tall so as you can imagine I'm as round as I am tall! *Sighs*

so what was my diagnosis with horrendous weight gain >> "PTSD" << Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, caused by trauma, pain and grief throughout most of my childhood and younger adult years. Who would've thought PTSD could cause so much pain, drama and heartache at this stage of my life ...

BUT that's all part of this crazy journey, so yeah, here I am with a new beginning, new challenge, new outlook on life and charging on...

I got this!
