Some of you may not know this about me but for some time I have been struggling with the way I feel about myself. This mostly has to do with my weight. You see growing up I never had to worry about my weight. In fact I had a pretty bad attitude towards people who complained about being over weight. I could eat whatever I wanted. It wasn't until I had Elai that I realized I had to really work to loose weight and keep it off. However that didn't happen, the keeping it off part. Next thing I knew here was Josie and another 20lbs. Well I got motivated after having Josie and lost the weight very quickly. But only to gain it back, plus some. It embarrasses me to say that when I found out I was pregnant with Miles, I actually weighed more then when I had Josie.
As my pregnancy was nearing an end, I knew I needed to do something about my weight. Not only was I sickened by how heavy I am but also about how I felt as a whole. My knees hurt if I walked to long, I ran out of breathe quickly and don't even get me started on my failed hiking attempt. So here I was pondering what I could do to not only loose weight but to get healthy. Well I figured it out!
Yesterday was a very exciting day for me, I started the Take Shape For Life program. It is a weight loss program that not only helps you loose weight but also teaches you to live a healthier life style. They have a special program for nursing moms so I was able to start right away. The best part about this program is that you get a free life coach. Even better is that my life coach is one of my very best friends. I am super excited to start this journey especially since I have the support of my dear friend.
Currently I am on day two and I feel great. I have been eating properly and I can definitely tell a difference already. I don't feel as weighted down by the food that I eat. Though I don't love all the food, I don't hate it either. I just had to learn to think out side of the box when meal planning for the week. I am so excited and can't wait for my weigh in next Monday.
