Ugh...that's what the scale said yesterday. I'm not trying to be a size 2, but I'm sick of being a 10/12. Not just a 10/12, but an out of shape one! Yes, I know, I just had a baby; yes, I know some women would like to be a 10, but I'm not one of them!! I'm a small/medium framed person who was a size 0/2 until I was 21. I don't want to look like that again, but I want to feel better about myself. I don't want to cringe when trying on a bathing suit...even though my stretchmarks running half way down my legs will still make me wear one of those cover up wraps, I'd like to look better everywhere else. So, I'm putting this out there for the whole world (yea, because the whole world is reading this!) to help motivate me to lose weight and shape up. I want to do it because I'm a little vain, sure, but I also want to stay healthy and active for my daughter. I want to have energy to play with her when she's older. I don't want to be too tired/lazy to go outside with her. I also don't want to set a bad example for her. Do you know that I get all organic food for her and make it myself, but I don't think twice about scarfing down a big mac and chasing it with a hot fudge sundae. That isn't right. I should care more about what I put in my body. I mean, junk food is good- every once in a while. Thankfully, I've already started making diet changes. I have increased my veggie intake, cut out soft drinks, and today, I passed up the opportunity to have a scrumdiddlyuptious (is that spelled correctly) cupcake from The Kupcake Factory, and let me tell you- that was hard. :)

Anyway, my point is- I'm going to lose weight. My goal is 25 pounds by the end of August, but I will be more than satisfied with losing 20 pounds. Every Wednesday, I'm going to weigh myself at the gym at my work...I will post the weight on here, which will really make me want to lose. I will say this- I'm already 2 pounds lighter than what I was two weeks ago; I really think I can do this. If you have any diet/exercise tips to share, please do so. OR, if you want to write motivating comments or something, that would be appreciated as well. Have a great day!!

Good for you!! I am going to start the 30 day shread tonight when I get home because I am tipping the scales too. And not in my favor. It's so depressing.

You can do it, you can do it!

The only motivation you need is Kadence. By starting to set a good example now, you will pave the way for her to be more inclined to have a healthier lifestyle.

I'll cheer ya on every Wednesday! You can do it!

You are one brave woman! I could not, would not post my weight.
That is definitely motivation though!
