Everyone seems to be on this weight loss hype… Yea.. I’m going to join it too. Not because I want to be ‘miss slim ting’, or because I want to look like the models on the front cover of magazines. I just want to be comfortable within myself.
For those who don’t know…. which is most of you, I lost 2 stone while I was pregnant with the girls. Can I get a woop woop. So here’s my problem… I’ve put it all back on again, and then some. When I finally got my appetite back it was rampant. I was eating everythingggg. Didn’t matter what time of the day, or what it was (as long as it was vegetarian). Now I’m paying for it.
Mr.J has to listen to me moan about how I don’t like the way I look, and the other day he said if you don’t like it, then change it. Yup, that hit home, but he has a point right. Sometimes we’re so quick to complain about something we don’t like, the job we’re in, the way we look , our hair (haha) but most times we can change it.
So I’ve decided… I’m going to stop complaining and make a change. I recently completed a nutrition course and have a new found passion for health. This is where my weight loss journey begins.
Not that I’m making excuses, but I do have a slight problem.I have this condition called diastasis recti, basically the girls tore my abdominal muscles apart and all my insides jingle and move where they please. (well that’s the dramatic explanation anyway :-D). On a real note, my muscles haven’t gone back together like they do for most women after pregnancy. If they don’t go back with physio there’s a possibility I will need an operation… Noooo…. But let’s hope not. So, this is going to be my obstacle, amongst many others, like my love for ice cream, but I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. So … It’s time for a change. Who’s with me?
Please let me know if you’re going through or have been through something similar. I know I’m going to need all the encouragement and motivation I can get. Comment, post, share your thoughts.
Have a great day and will keep you updated. 😀
