Many changes in my life. Now it is time to take care of me. I am a funny or at least people laugh at me....hmmmm, mother of 4 boys all in their 20's and I am also a bonus Mom to two daughters one in her 20's and a teenager. Because, you have to have a sense of humor when raising teenagers....I recently read that rasing teens is like nailing Jello to a tree. It's true. LOL They are wonderful kids, but trying to diet in a house full of growing kids is hard. I really don't know how I manage to keep this weight on, they eat everything not tied down. LOL
I put on weight w/ my first pregnancy, and managed to take it off, then on it went again. Now I am back on track and hopefully,
I am excited about really doing it this time.
1. Get Healthy for me.
2. Get healthy for my family.
3. To only do my heavy breathing w/my husband. ;) Not walking up a flight of stairs.
4. So I won't be judged by my outsides so often.
5. So my butt will fit into regular chairs and airplane seats.
6. Shop in regular sized stores.
7. To want to have my picture taken.
8. To wear heels occasionally.
9. To wear skirts again. Not floor length but regular
knee length.
10. To not have to squeeze into my kayak.
11. Fit into my roller blades again.
12. to love my outsides as much as I love my insides.
13. not to be so tired all the time.
14. to have my feet stop hurting.
15. Just feel better in my skin!
I have a long way to go that's for sure but I am hopeful that I will make it to a healthier me.
