Below 200

Friday, October 05, 2012

I weighed in today at 199. I am SO EXCITED! I was really disappointed in myself for gaining so much when I was pregnant, but I set myself a goal to be below 200 by the time I went back to work and I made it. I have a week left of maternity leave, so I made my goal by 9 days. By then I will probably be less. I can't take all of the credit though. I have a great support system. My wonderful husband who listens to my accomplishments and my whining. My mom & best friend who encourages me constantly. It's nice to have people to go on this journey with. There have been those that have told me I won't lose all the weight. There have been those that have told me my body will never be the same (and maybe it won't.) But I'm the kind of person when you put a challenge in front of me, I take it and I will conquer it. I know there are things that may never be the same; having a baby wrecks havoc on your body. But it is possible to feel good about myself and to lose the weight. And I will do it! I will prove to those that have said I can't do it wrong and I will prove to myself that I can do it. Then when it comes to others that have to do the same thing I'm doing now I can encourage them and perhaps be an example of someone that did it.

    It's pretty fun proving the people wrong that told you you couldn't do it, that's part of the reason I've worked so hard ;) Your doing great!
