I feel like I have spent more than half my life worried about my weight. Even as a young child I remember not being as thin as my cousins or friends. I use to call myself big boned or thick, but I was just over weight and unhealthy. I was never taught as a child to eat healthy or even what that meant. As I grew up the insecurities over my weight grew with me. To deal with my emotions I began to eat instead of really dealing with the problems. As any emotional eater knows, I felt like the food gave me comfort and a way to hide the feelings.

I have tried every diet or pill I could get my hands on, or at least afford, but the motivation was rooted in insecurities not health. Then after several years of trying to conceive a Dr. told me that if I lost weight it might help. I needed to get healthy and the desire for another child drove me to do it. I wish I could say I did it all on my own but that would not be true. I joined L.A. Weight loss and lost 65lbs. Then after all that work I finally conceived my second child. I was so happy...I ate my way through the pregnancy and gained 45lbs! So apparently I didn't learn anything about being healthy. After the birth of my precious little one, again I was determined to get back down to my prepregnancy weight. This time I would do it the right way no gimmicks or short cuts. Lots of working out, healthy food, and a life style change. And I was doing great 30lbs down and learning everything I could. But as the saying goes when we make plans, God laughs. I unexpectedly got pregnant again! However, during my third pregnancy I gained very little and was pleased with that. It seem like every time I lose weight I get pregnant. Once again I lost the pregnancy weight and surprise I got pregnant again!

So here I am now after three babies in four and half years, trying to lose the weight for good. I am learning every day to make better choices and to stop eating emotionally. I have found that exercise is a great way to relieve stress and it benefits me so much more than a chocolate candy bar:) I am enjoying being healthy and learning that I like to be active. No more couch potato here. That big boned, thick, and unhealthy person no longer exists. Watch out here comes the new healthier me!
