Weight Loss Wednesday's on this little blog.
Most of ya'all know I strive for healthy living. I've always had to watch what I've eaten because my good ol' family genes give me a tendency to be fluffy.... along with diabetes, cancer and heart disease to name a few other fun things that come along with being fluffy.
I am not one of those people that is able to eat whatever I want and still fit into my jeans comfortably. I have to work... and HARD! My college years I got a little too into "being healthy" which translated into "exercising compulsively and eating oatmeal for breakfast and salads for lunch and dinner."
I dropped down to 105 lbs.
That is CRAZY small for my body type. I am comfortable right around 130-135lbs. I've always had an athletic, solid build. The death of my mama and a good kick in the butt from Jesus changed my mind set from seeing how small and tiny I could get to being healthy. Making this body a place where Jesus can dwell and to take care of it to the best of my ability. Over the years God has blessed those turned around thoughts by making me able to have babies (something I was VERY scared I wouldn't be able to do after my eating disorder) and kinda look a bit fit... fit into my jeans comfortably and keep up with my crazy active hubby.
So. I'm 5 weeks post baby-having and just started to work out again. My eating will change at the beginning of the year because let's face it.. it's Christmas time and there are buckeye's to be eaten! Yet alone the last 5 weeks we've been blessed with friends bringing meals to help with the dinner burden as we learn to be a family of five. I had to try all the baked spaghetti, enchilada lasagna and apple pies, right?
At the first of the year I plan to kick it up a notch and take you all along on my journey with a blog post every Wednesday. I'll have you help me stay accountable, share what I'm eating and my exercise plans along with sharing my struggles and frustrations of not being a naturally sized 4, big boobed, tiny waisted, could-run-a-marathon-without-training gal.
I am none of those things.. cept for the ta-ta's.. but those are filled with milk so my tiny, triple "A" long sized boobies will come back when I'm done nursing. =)
With my other 2 girls it's taken me about 9 months to get down to my pre-pregnancy weight. I really don't want it to take that long this time. We're pretty sure Emery is our last baby and I'd love to knock out this weight once and for all!
If you want to come along with me, that'd be great! Make sure you pick up a copy of Made to Crave because I'll be quoting it probably every blog post.
Lets do this thing together.
