174! What? Those numbers made my stomach drop at the doctor’s office yesterday morning. Can’t get that number out of my mind! My home scale hovered near 170 on the weekend, but still…174! Nevertheless, I have never ever weighed this much in my life–I repeat EVER! At age 23, I weighed 172 pounds, and I was able to get that weight off over 7 months, but I was also 23! My body was easier to manipulate back then! Now, at 37, my body is completely different with having two young children. I am determined more than ever in losing 20 pounds would be get me to a better BMI–and even 30 points would get me in ideal range!
30 Pounds is daunting to me! The last time I weight 144 was probably around my wedding in 2010. Sometimes, it’s depressing to look at pictures from my past…how is it possibly to have gained almost 30 pounds in the span of 8 years? I often beat myself up….how could have I stopped this? If anyone has any encouraging words about weight loss, please drop me a line!
