First on foremost on the list of things I want to accomplish before I turn 30 is losing this dag gone baby weight. I've sat depressed and worn baggy clothes for far too long. This is something I want to do for myself so I can feel like me again. I'm just not comfortable at my current weight.
Before my daughter was born I weighed in at 135 and at my heaviest during my pregnancy with her I was 198. Wow. I lost most of the weight before getting pregnant with my son but ballooned back up to 189. Now I'm stuck at 153.
And just for visual effect, here is a photo of me and my Maid of Honor before I got pregnant with my daughter
And here I am a few weeks after my daughter was born
And here is the most recent photo I have of myself
Not flattering at all, but I don't allow many pictures these days.
While I have lost a decent amount of weight, it's just not enough. I refuse to buy new clothes to fit my current weight, so aside from the few outfits I've bought for special occasions, I'm stuck wearing t-shirts and sweat pants. Boring!
Why am I doing it on a public forum you ask? Because I find myself more motivated when I have others holding me accountable. So, every Wednesday I'll be posting tips on weight loss, recipes and ideas along with my progress.
If you're like me and work better under pressure or in the public eye, feel free to tag along in the comments sections with recipes, ideas and progress. Let's do this together! Stay tuned for tomorrow's first Weight Loss Wednesday!
