Weight Loss Journey
As a baby, I was a little chunky thing but it was cute back then. Normal weight in childhood, but when I reached 9 & 10 I was very big. I lost that weight and was your average sized kid.
In 2012, I was pregnant with my Gabs. I was average weight with a round belly and still looked and felt great. When I had Gabby, I was adamant to breastfeeding which helped me melt a lot of the new weight away. Her 1st year was fine on me although I gained some weight. By her 2nd year, I didn't feel right... I didn't want to see people because I knew I was bigger than they'd remember.
I have a full body mirror in my bathroom that sits right behind the door. I look at it daily whenever I sit on the toilet or even if I want to check out my outfits. I’ve gotten to the point when I don’t even look at the mirror before I leave my house anymore. It just REALLY sucks to be fat.
Because it sucks, I decided to do something about it. I would hit my local gym that’s literally a block away and even after all the intensity, my body did not feel as sore as it did in the past when I attended the gym. I felt like I was doing something wrong and guess what? Maybe I was.
I went to the Gym for a week and it was ok, but I couldn’t feel the Big Burn of the workouts so I decided that I needed to do something different. That’s when I remembered that my sister had once told me about a Jillian Michaels DVD. I was ready to try anything. Let me remind my readers that this post is not sponsored whatsoever. I just wanted to speak to you a little about my “Fat” life. I LOVE food and am sad that I can not eat everything I want if I want to get fit. I decided to Try the 30 Day Shred with Jillian Michaels.
Now I ask you… Do you want to take this weightless journey with me? I am NOT going to do it right at times because I don’t have self control in some things yet (Sweets!), but I am making a promise to myself that I WILL get back to my comfort weight zone! I still love ALL my Skinny & Curvy Gals, but I want to take control of my body again and not let “nature run it’s course.
I’ll Update everyone next week. Thanks for reading!
