A chubby mama.....

Lately I have been so discouraged about my weight, it just seems that I can't lose anything or I try for a little and then eat ice cream (do you know how much I love ice cream) My birthday is coming up in a few short days and once again I am hating how I look and feel. So I am going to do something about it I joined The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Pants challenge. My goal is for my 35th birthday next year, to be the happy about me, to have energy to run and play with my kids, to not have a muffin top when I wear jeans, to not have my favorite pair of pants be yoga pants (though they are so comfortable)and not to dread vacation and my bathing suit. I need to take time out for me, I only get one life and hating how I look and feel is not a way to live.

So please join me on this journey, I need all the encouragement I can get. Since I am a photographer-wannabe I will include pictures throughout my journey to a fit and healthy me. Wednesdays are weigh-in days, so on Wednesday, I will blog about my week, trials and accomplishments, and weight loss. Maybe even some healthy recipes I stumble upon.

here's to getting fit one day at time,
hugs *a*

Visiting from the Shrinking jeans, welcome! I am a new member as well.

I so feel you about the weight and hating how you look, I feel the same way. Good luck on your journey and know that you aren't alone.

I'm also a newbie from The Shrinking Jeans.

I've been procrastinating losing weight for a while and I can't blame it on my babies anymore (18-months and 3-years-old). So, we're in this together and you can do it. Just take it one day at a time.

Hey fellow sister. I also want to be able to wear my bathing suit again. It is so hot here and I cannot find a full body bathing suit that will hide all my flaws.

I am here for you, we will support each other the whole way!
