When I first started working at Panera bread I was a healthy 112 pounds (on average) Now in typical girl mode I wasn't happy with this, in my mind I could have stood to loose another 5lbs before I would be really happy with the way I looked (for all you concerned citizens out there I stand at a whopping 5'2") That was a year ago.
Then came Panera. Now I'm not saying it was the job itself that caused me to gain a good 10-15 pounds within the first few months. I'm saying it was my inner fat ass near all those delicious cookies and double fudge brownies for 30+ hours a week that may have been a big factor.
|say no to this, I dare you.|
Then I got my celiac test which confirmed that I am a certified glu-tard me and bread are no longer on good terms. On the bright side I started getting better and I wasn't rejecting any of my meals *yay* on the down side I had to change my eating habits to a normal person, you know now that I can eat half the amount of food for the same amount of nutrients.

Predictable I gained a bit of weight. Also predictably I did not sit very well with me, I've always been small and am determined to stay that way, but healthily. I made a promise to myself that I would be back to my former weight by my cousins wedding at the end of July. And for super awesome bonus point to my ideal weight by my friend's wedding in mid August. So after months at the gym and forgoing sweets for chicken ceasar salad has finally paid off and I'm only one pound away from my goal weight.
So screw you excess weight I shall kick your ass down the stairs and out the door, because damn it I will not be the girl at my friends wedding that got fat after high school.
So has anyone else had any issues with their weight after graduating or starting a new job? How did you get over it? Any tips for me in the home stretch?
