My Motivation

So this is the motivation that I needed to kick myself into high gear on getting back into shape. There are two piles of pants here. One pile is two sizes too small on me (the larger pile) and one pile is one size too small for me. I want to get back into these pants, one pile at a time. Emily is 10.5 weeks old now. Honestly I have not stepped on a scale since her birth with the exception of the doctor's scale when I went in for a check up. I couldn't tell you what my weight is, but I do know this. The number matters not to me. It's the fact that I'm uncomfortable in my own skin. I feel self conscious when I put on a pair of tight fitting, low rise jeans. I want to feel good about myself again. I loved my body when I was working out three times a week. and that wasn't very long ago. I am certain that I can regain this self confidence although I know it will take lots of hard work on my part. It's work that I am willing to do without even the best diet pills. It'll take help, though. I am going to have to talk to my MIL to see if she can keep Emily for an hour a day while the older kids are at school so that I can go back to my work out regimen. Hopefully my sister is going to be able to join with me and we'll work out together. Either way, I am going to change.

I've been looking for some motivation myself to start doing something other than just thinking about some sort of weight loss. Unfortunately, that's still as far as I've gotten it seems. Sigh ...

I wish I had just half of your motivation girl!
Good luck! ;)

I am hoping to drop some major weight after this little babe gets here-I havent been comfortable in my own skin for at least 7 years now.

More power to you, Tisha! It's tough to be uncomfortable in one's own skin.
