I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.
Hi! I'm a 38-year-old mother of three. My weight has fluctuated between 115-160 over the years. 115 was TOO skinny and 125-130 is about just right for me. I maintained at between 120-125 for the past three years and II have sort of "accidentally" gained about 20lbs in the last 6 months. I'm having an awful time of it because my clothes are all too small and I feel like I have let myself go.
I'm working to correct a combination of bad habits - alcohol, ice cream, eating out to 'treat' myself, eating too much, etc. I'm a vegetarian and I used to be great at counting calories, but lately I eat too much and my overall nutrition is terrible (I'm a cheese-atarian). I'm going to try the meal plans - I love how nutritionally sound they are and how you can print out the grocery list to make things easier. I think it's time I started taking better care of myself.
I'm still not sold on exercise though - it's strange, but exercise makes me so hungry I gain weight rather than lose it. I'll probably do the absolute minimum - 20 minute walks every day - for starters at least. Wish me luck!
