Here goes... before photos for the Rachel Mac challenge
Saturday, December 04, 2010
I have tried numerous times to loose weight but have always fallen back into the same old habits. It was depressing to put on my swimsuit and realize that now I can't even button the bottom! It was a big eye opener after reviewing my photos, I look like I'm pregnant! I had my daughter four years ago and still look like I'm expecting. I am hoping that that participating in this challenge will help me learn consistency. I always start strong but the week before TOM I give up all of my hard work. I have such a difficult time dealing with cravings. After that I feel like I have blown it and continue to gorge, telling myself that I will start again tomorrow.... but tomorrow doesn't come for a month or two. I want to once again feel comfortable in my own skin. I want to wear dresses and other "form fitting" clothes and be confident in them. I wear hoodies like they're some form of security blanket. I wear them all seasons, even on the hot and humid days. I want to feel feminine, be healthy, and a good role model for my daughter. From always wearing oversized layers to posting images of myself in a bathing suit for all to see is a tremendous step for me. I am going to need the help and support of any sparkers willing to do so.
