Second verse, same as the first! A little bit louder and a little bit coarse! (Yeah, I know, but it's not actually worse...)
Hello! I'm Adrian. I'm a mom of a sweet 4 year old boy, and wife to a type 1 diabetic. I will turn 27 on June 8th, and I'm finally ready to be a size 10. I currently weigh 235 lbs(size 22), and my goal weight is 120 (or a size 10!). My husband is 300lbs and will also be on this journey with me. I'm not sure what his goal is, but we both want to be healthier and set good examples for our little boy. We have super awesome friends who are inspirations every day, and a very expensive gym membership, and some pretty terrible pictures that we'd both rather forget. So it's time to put down the cookies and put on my work shoes and get my a** on the elliptical.
A long time ago, in an apartment far away...
I've never been little. The smallest size I remember is 14, when I
was a freshman in high school. When I was very young my parents split (the first time) and my mom got me. Though she tried her hardest, sometimes food was a bit scarce. (Not through her fault. The people who were supposed to be feeding me didn't.) So I began to devour food at a young age. Also, food was a comfort. Food was warm and filling. I mistook my stomach for my heart. Then my parents got back together, but the chub was already there. Instead of going back to healthy habits, I was scared the lean times would come again. So I ate. And ate.
I ate my feelings. My mother passed down many body issues to me. I was made fun of at school. Boys didn't like me. I had a hormone imbalance and didn't get diagnosed or taken care of, so puberty was difficult. Then my parents separated for real when I was 14. That was the smallest I remember really being. I ate my rejection, I ate my sorrow for being at another school away from friends, I just ate. It was sad, and I hovered around an 18/190# for a while. Then I got pregnant and gained 52 pounds. It was ridiculous. And I've been working ever since to lose it.
I'm tired of being the big girl and I want to be healthy. Let's do it, AGAIN!
To be who I am inside!
(Cue Mulan singing!)
**Run a 5k~~preferrably Color Me Rad or the Princess Dash at WDW.
**To be skinnnnnny. (Obviously.)
**For the gym to be a habit
I plan on doing an hour of cardio M-F, and eating the recommended calories for me based on SP!
No more eating out if I can help it! IF I do, smart choices
WATER, WATER EVERYWHERE! I should be drowning.
I'm from OKC. =) I love crafts, geeky things, sci-fi and role playing. I'm a nerd, and love it.
