I’ve had times in my life where I was in pretty good shape. Even though I felt fat and ugly. Now, I feel pretty good about myself, even though I’m not in the best shape of my life. I was really sick for quite a few years and wasn’t able to exercise at all. I’ve also had 7 pregnancies. This all takes a tole on a body.
I’m not making excuses, but I’m telling you that for the last couple of years, even though I’ve felt much better, and I’ve been walking and eating better, I haven’t lost much weight. Now, in my defense, I have had two pregnancies and miscarriages in the last three years.
That being said, and we’ll talk about lose on another post, I still wasn’t putting forth a lot of effort to lose weight. A large part of that was mental on my part. I’d convinced myself that if I started REALLY working out, I’d either get pregnant or sick. That’s happened to me before, on more than one occasion.
Still, I wanted to lose weight and get into shape. I’ve had friends offer to help, but I just wasn’t ready. But lately, I have been. And now, I’M DOING IT!
My trusted brand of essential oils has a great weight management and get healthy program. I have been doing some of the things in this program for about a month and lost 5 lbs. doing it. But Monday, I started the CHALLENGE for REAL!
And now, here comes the part I don’t like too much, my before pictures. I’m determined to be me on this blog. I want you to know that I am doing the things I write about. I’m not perfect, and won’t be, at least in this life. I am a woman, a mother, a wife, and HUMAN.
So, each week, I’ll keep you up to date on my weight lose, and in the end , I’ll share my after pictures. As of Monday, June 20, 2016 I weigh 164 lbs. My goal is to lose 27 lbs.
