I debated on writing this post...I didn't want to...but I feel like I need to.
I am not happy with my weight. After my first two babies I bounced back right away. After my third, things didn't happen so easy. I was working from home doing medical transcription- sitting at a desk the majority of the day. I was extremely stressed- trying to take care of three young children was not always an easy task. It was hard to make time to work out- work, house, kids.
Food became my go to. I would stress eat. I would bored eat. I would eat because it was a HABIT. Then I would hide by wearing sweats- they stretch.
I was tired- a lot. Sure, kids wear you out but so does eating like crap and not getting off your butt. Then it became hard.
I started doing good and lost about 25 lbs. I was only about 10-15 lbs away from my goal- SO CLOSE- yet those were the HARDEST to even work on. Just this spring I was almost there.
Life happened and here I am once again. I probably need to lose 30-35 lbs- AGAIN.
I DESERVE to look good- feel good- and be happy! I will do this for me- because I know I can. I will do this for my kids- they deserve a good example.
They say it takes about 1 1/2 months to break a habit. It is time! I know this won't be easy and I am going to take it slow. I will listen to my body and decide if I am REALLY hungry. I will switch soda for water. I will put down that cookie- it's not worth it anyways. I will make time to work out.
Why? Because I deserve it!
Do you struggle with weight loss? Do you have any habits you want to kick?
