On our honeymoon, my goal weight!
this was a few weeks ago... I know it is hard to tell but I can tell that Ive lost some!
Mommy in june
Well I was doing great as of my last post about dieting, but then I kindve got out of the swing of things... I had lost seventeen pounds...gained five back and as of about two wks ago (the last time I weighed myself) lost four more! so now I have lost a total of sixteen pounds.... not really where I want to be!
Well, God used a bible study I have been doing at church to convict me a little. In our small group we were talking about being attractive for your husband and I realized that it is not fair for Kevin to come home everyday to me in sweats with a pony tail and spit up on my shirt! If I make the effort to look nice when we go to church or when I go out to see my friends then why would I not make that effort for him?
To clarify I am married to one of the sweetest men in the world and he would never in a million years tell me I was anything less then gorgeous. But I want to look nice for him, to make him feel special. My excuse for not dressing up is that my clothes don't fit...well that excuse is out the window because I am going to get back to a size where atleast a decent amount of my clothing fits! Not that Kevin will come home to me dressed up with pearls on everyday... but for him and FOR ME I want to feel and look nice!
So I am back in the swing of things... I have walked/jogged the last three days in a row and plan to keep it up... losing weight is a slow process, and I often look at other new moms or my firends who have not had children with envy because they look so good... but I am learning, this is where I am at right now, but I am young and I can work hard to change that!
