I just realized I have not updated on my weightloss in a while. This being the end of the year and this is one of the biggest accoplishments I have done in my life not to mention this year. My goal was 30 for 30. Meaning, my goal was during the year I turned 30 my goal was to loose 30 lbs. I have not only acheived that goal but surpassed it and still going. I NEVER thought I could do. Bad I know but I definitely had lost the confidence in myself to do it after the last 8 years of being overweight. The weight gain started when I started having babies. Baby 1 gained 10 lbs, #2 10 more and #3 10 more then over the next 4 years it slowly climbed climbed. To 50 lbs over the weight I was when I got married. Woah that is alot of cake! About 2 years ago I participated in a biggest loser competition with some friends and did lose 25 lbs but once it was over I lost motivation to keep going. I kept the weight off for a year and slowly gained about 10 back though I never got as high as I was to start, thank God! This year I decided I was going to quit wishing to be thinner and go for it. It all started when I fullfilled my dream of horse ownership and got interested in eventing and I remember the day my trainer says to me "If you want to do eventing you are going to have to loose some weight. Eventers need to be in great condition." That was all I needed. A goal, something to work toward, and something for myself that I loved. No better reason to start taking care of myself. So July 14th I joined weight watchers and started my weight loss journey. To date I have lost 35 lbs!!! I said before my initial goal was 30lbs but once I started getting close I realized I could do it and made my goal 40lb. Which will be the weight I was when I got married!!! I didn't think I would ever happen and I feel so good. Not just health wise, though I do feel great, but also mentally. I have realized that I am worth taking care of and there is NO reason to feel guilty for putting myself higher on the prority list. I have built confidence in myself that I had lost. Now I know that if I can accomplish this then that just means I need to make a new goal in my life and just go for it!!!
The old me. The week I started WW.
