Dear Cait of 2009,
I wish I could tell you how crazy this statement is: "I finally weighed myself to establish my "start weight" which is 143. My goal is to lose 10 pounds by my birthday, June 4. My ultimate goal is to get to 126 again for my SIL's wedding on December 3. My scale is about 5 pounds off but I just use it for comparison."
When my SIL got married I was 6 months pregnant and was probably already 180 lb.
My current weight is sliding between 157 and 158 - I am 5'10" tall and I can't imagine ever being 133 again let alone 126. But, reviewing that blog did make me realize that 143 once felt fat to me, so I definitely can get to a goal weight of 145-148 as long as I am consistent, true to myself and keep focus! My body is different now, I carry more fat. I carry more burdens and stresses, I have more love in my life than I ever imagined. I can't work out twice in one day or go to the gym whenever I want to. I am not capable of restricting my diet like crazy. My life is not focused on being super thin or a certain number. I just want to feel good, be in control and be able to physically do things I want to do. I want these things because they give me confidence and make me a better wife and mom.
