Weight loss. It is such a dirty set of words. I loathe the idea of changing my habits or giving up things I enjoy eating that aren’t so good for me. I often wish I could wake up one morning, and slip back into the size 8 jeans I feel oh, so confident wearing. Yet, I am here; wearing a double-digit pant size, loving my leggings, and oversized sweatshirts. I am a SAHM, and my dress code doesn’t require business casual, or even pants some days. I’ve birthed a couple of kiddos, and yearn for the privilege to wear my pre-maternity clothes that silently line the closet walls. I want my ‘hot mom’ status back or at least feel I’m setting a good example for these wee little ones with my health, fitness, and eating habits.
Rant over, this is where the rubber meets the road. I am back in the saddle, as my fellow Texans might say about my decision to lose the ‘baby weight’ that has stayed along for the journey too long. The past 5 months have been a rollercoaster ride with my weight, and it is high time I start the steady journey up the mountain to my goal size. Yes, I said goal size. I know I have this blog titled “Weight Loss Journey” That is what will occur, but I don’t have an end number in mind. I have a pair of jeans I want to wear again and a body fat percentage number in mind I want to achieve. That means we will find out together how much fat pounds I lose. It is a fascinating idea to learn what my body will do when I stop feeding it garbage, stop overeating, and start exercising.
Want to be a fly on the wall? Great, because I am gonna share it as I walk through this journey to get my body back in shape.
