Back in 2003 I moved to London, England where I lived for two years. I drank so much beer during that time that I gained 30 pounds. I remember vividly the day that I discovered just how bloated I had become. I was at work helping a student tie her shoe laces when I felt a tightening around my waistline. You have to understand that for a long time I had maintained a weight of 135 lbs. As I raced to the nearest scale I was shocked to learn that I was now 160 lbs! The horror. I call it my baby weight, I was eventually able to lose half the weight gain but it doesn’t matter, each year it’s one dress size up.
I went to Nanaimo for Fernanda and Evan’s wedding, whom you can see below at my 26th birthday party. Don’t we look divine!?
