Hey everyone, So here's the real deal... I totally thought i only gained 40lbs when i was pregnant but i gained about 48-50!!! Yep. that's the truth. i'll not do that again and i know what i can do better next time. I'm just grateful i don't have a controlling, jerky, critical husband like some peoples men. Brandon was along for the ride with me carrying Aria and all and i'm so lucky to have such a wonderful man. About 5 weeks after Aria was born we had a family reunion in San Diego and here's me then. Mind you, i had already lost 12 lbs from the day she was born. Look at Aria's little foot and see where my belly is sticking out(b&w Pic). Look at my face and arms and just all of me.
I hate looking at these pics but it's a good reminder of where i'm not going again! I wouldn't normally show ANYONE this at all. but i just want you all to know my starting point.
Now, this is me currently. I 've Lost 55 lbs or so( the numbers keep going down so fast i'm sure i'm off b/c i weighed myself last week). I achieved my weight loss by eating better, getting a good night sleep and SWEAT! (also, stay busy- you'll eat less, even if it's just cleaning or crafting!)I work out all the time_ i mean 4-6 times a week. Sometimes i work out and feel so sick, like i'm going to loose my breakfast! but it's been so worth it. Nora is an added boost to helping me lose it and i'm grateful for her and her experience and encouragement. She's a killer and i love it. I do my homework and eat right- just ask Brandon!
So, needless to say it's a drastic improvement. AND i'm not even close to being done. This pic is now my new before pic! Yep, I'm currently already in my regular size pants/ clothes and such but i plan on being even smaller- like when i was first married! I'm not giving you all numbers of what i currently weigh but i will tell you, i'll be 20 lbs. lighter than i am now and have better body fat %. So, ladies and friends, If you're struggling with your weight... this is what it all comes down to... Are you so disgusted with your body that your willing to do something about it every day? Sacrifice is everything. Your body and your Spirit are worth the effort! If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got!
