In the fall of 2010, I was transferred to the middle school. Soon after starting there, I gained more weight and increased my pants’ size. It must have been from stress.
Soon I was back to the weight from when I started the journey. My body held onto it like it was a security blanket.
The next school year, I was back at the elementary school and continued to maintain that weight. I had about 3 or 4 pants I could wear comfortably to work.
At one point, I tried to lose some of the weight. I played the numbers game once again. After a couple of weeks, I had given up and regained any weight I had lost.
I allowed myself to not take care of my health.
I once again was transferred to work with middle school-age children. My class was very disrespectful. Also, the stress of the job took the weight and really held onto it. I was gradually moving towards the biggest pants size I had ever worn. (I also wasn’t eating breakfast regularly, drinking Coke, and eating lunch was a balancing act.)
I did not like how I looked.
They transferred me back to the elementary in November, and I joined Elf 4 Health.
