There are a lot of things I miss, but what I miss the most is being able to fit into all the clothes in my closet! When I was 23, I worked my butt off and lost 70 pounds, putting me in the BEST shape of my life. 9 years later my body has put all the weight back on. Now, in my defense, I've had a baby, and I don't have the body that just "snaps" back into shape post baby (ooo, those women make me crazy; I hope they realize just how lucky they are!)
Last year I began loosing weight and right as I was getting into a wonderful routine a heel spur stopped me dead in my tracks. 9 years later it's harder to exercise. I'm older, I have a 3 1/2 year old to keep up with with, I work, keep a house in order. But let's face it: I love food too much to not eat it and I'm lazy!
I keep trying to loose the weight, but it's not going to happen until I'm truly ready: which means no more excuses, and basically giving up the foods I love!
I'm very grateful to have a husband who loves me and all the giggly parts that come with me! He gets frustrated with me when I make comments about how chunky I am. I'm slowly coming to terms with the fact that this is what I look like until I'm really ready to change. Until then I tell everyone that eating the way I do helps me maintain my giggly parts!!
So, instead of looking like this:
I look like this:
The other part that sucks about this: Nick hasn't changed a bit...so unfair!!
A girl can always dream, but as long as Dove chocolate candy and Dairy Queen Blizzards are around, I don't expect to be loosing any weight anytime soon!! Oh, how I miss those days!
