Here I go again. I can't even keep track of how many times I have tried to lose weight and get in shape. I will be 40 next year and have a 12 year old daughter and a newborn daughter. I tried for years to have a second child and after several loses our prayers were answered. I will be honest...it was a lot easier the first time around. I could get up and down when playing on the floor with ease. Not anymore. I have to scoot over to the couch to help myself up. I want to lose 50 pounds but I know I could lose more. I go see my nutritionist in a week and I haven't gained any over the holidays. Great accomplishment for me. I need a jump start but I need to make sure I eat healthy in order to continue nursing my baby. Tomorrow we are planning on buying a treadmill. My bf enjoys running and is planning on doing a 5K in a couple months. As much as I hate running I really want to do it. More to prove it to myself that I am capable of anything. It will also motivate my 12 year old. She started middle school this year and had a hard time with running. She is now running in the time given and is enjoying it. I need to take my own advice and just do it. No more excuses. I am worth it and so is my family. My girls shouldn't have to do without because I am being lazy or tired. It is time to make lifestyle changes.
