Hi guys, my name is Ayanna. I joined this site a few years ago but I wasn't really committed to losing weight. When I had my first child, I did this same thing. I made excuses why I couldn't exercise, excuses about why I couldn't eat right but when I put my mind to it, I lost the weight rather quickly (about 20 lbs in 2 months). Well shortly after I lost that weight, I got pregnant again lol. My son will be 2 in May and I haven't lost more than 2 lbs since his birth (so pathetic). I'm tired of looking like a bag of potatoes. My energy is down. I hate looking in mirrors. I didn't realize what I actually looked like until I took a pic with my husband a few weeks ago and it disgusted me so much til I haven'even showed it to anyone until now. My family is beautiful and I feel like I don't belong. I'm not as confidence in my appearance as I once was and as shallow as that sounds, I'm not confident in myself. That has to change. The good thing as about my weight situation is that I don't gain easily, that bad thing is that I also don't lose without working at it. I was 150 lbs and cute before I got pregnant the 2nd time. I weight 168 now. A 20 lb loss wil make me comfortable, still "overweight" for my height, but comfortable. That is my goal before 6-26-09..my next birthday.
