I can’t remember if I’ve posted this picture before… As you know, I don’t post that many pictures of myself, but I’m thinking maybe I will post more once I get down to my weight-loss goal. You know, once I’m not so embarrassed to be seen anymore!
By the way, the weight loss is going GREAT. I have been working out like a beast (think 4x a week… working out so hard that my face turns beet red and sweat flies off of me in all directions!) for the past four months… I’ve lost 24 pounds and I’ve gone down three dress-sizes and counting! It’s hard work but it’s totally paying off. I push myself as hard as I can. I don’t shy away from the burn. Instead, I welcome it. I always say that if you don’t feel the burn, you’re not working hard enough! I work out so hard that it’s impossible for me to carry on a conversation. I’ve also modified what I eat as well… I’ve really cut back on processed foods and I’ve added more vegetables, fruits, lean meats, whole grains, etc. Basically, I’m just working out really hard and eating healthier. My motivation is not only for my health, but I want to be around for a while for my little boy.
Plus, looking better isn’t all that bad either!
You guys! I feel so good!
See, I’ve been going to a gym for the past week because I am super tired of being overweight. I want my pre-baby size back. Ok, ok… I know I’ll never be THAT thin again, but I’ll take a size 8 any day. Hell, right now, I can’t squeeze my PINKIE TOE into a size 8, so can you imagine how totally euphoric I would be to ACTUALLY BE a size 8? (Well, I’d love to be a size 6, but let’s be realistic. A size 6 will probably never happen, and I’m ok with that.)
So yeah, I’m pretty happy with this gym… I like the routine and how good I feel when I am done. It feels great and I am confident that by next summer, I will be close to (if not at) my goal.
