Hi. My name is Baillie (AKA Ducky) and I'm a former fat chick.
My story is the same as a majority of the members on this forum. I was always a chubby kid, I hit puberty, got diagnosed with PCOS, gained more weight...gained even more weight...dieted between weight gains, failed at said diets, and got to the point where I was sick of all the fat I had to carry around. Since my mother got Gastric Bypass and had amazing results, I decided to get the Gastric Sleeve.
It's not easy. There is no easy way to lose weight. I never went in thinking that Dumbledore was going to make me lose weight and E.T. was gonna heal me. It takes work, but it's so easy to make it fun. I enjoy working out. I enjoy figuring out ways to have my favorite foods but still pack them with protein and make them healthy. I mean, I made pumpkin bread with 12 grams of protein and little fat, carbs, and sugar. I didn't miss a thing!
I don't know what else to put here. It'll probably edited later.
