In Not Losing Weight I’m Getting Rid Of It

photofor blog

I have been battling with my weight since I can remember. I was 20 when I got a hold of it for the 1st time. I went from 268 to 175. I pretty much maintained my weight up in till I had my 1st baby. After the birth of her I was right back where I started 260. I did lose some of the baby weight over time. I got down to 202.6 and stayed around that for years but I stayed over 200lbs.

Now fast forward to July 17, 2012. I just had my son and was looking down at my hips[which I haven’t seen in months] couldn’t help but to think ‘How Long Is This Going To Take To Get Off”

Right away I wanted to start on the weight lose, because I had to face it, I’m not 21 anymore. I was going to need a lot more effort now that I’m older. As well as it was going to take a lot of Dedication, Determination and Discipline then it did before. Even though I wanted to lose weight I wasn’t motivated to do it. You know if the motivation isn’t there it’s not going to happen. A month or so after having the baby and I took a picture. This wasn’t your normal picture it was the picture that SPARKED THE MOVMENT!! this picture made me say out loud “I’M DONE, NO MORE, NEVER AGAIN, I CANT DO THIS ANYMORE”

From that day on I was Motivated. I had the 3D’s Dedication, Determination and Discipline. I started a clean eating regiment as well as green smoothies and exercised 4 days a week. I have to say I’m proud of myself for sticking to this new life style. As you can see in the pictures below I wasn’t play….
