I grew up very active. I grew up not paying attention to what i ate. I was a young bride and a year later become a young mom. I suddenly went from my active lifestyle to hardly moving at all. I used the excuses "I can't exercise, I'm pregnant!" and "I'm eating for two." I quickly began to gain weight. My 4'10 frame quickly begin to expand. I had this idea that once I had my first child that all the extra pounds would quickly AND magically disappear. Needless to say, it did not do either. I suddenly realized there was a problem. I realized the problem was with ME and the way I was thinking. I suddenly was making myself the victim, it was everybody and everything else that was causing the extra pounds. I have always been a very happy person, however the increase in pant sizes was not giving my morale a boost, and I became very unpleasant to be around. I finally hit breaking point... in the course of one month I had 4 people (two of which who were strangers) ask me if I was pregnant or when my baby was due....(my child was 2yrs at the time and I was NOT expecting). I was broken, I had to take my life back for MYSELF and MY FAMILY.
A HAPPY MOMMY IS A HAPPY FAMILY
It took TIME. It took SACRIFICE. It took a BURNING DESIRE WITH A CHANGE IN ATTITUDE..... and it took SUPPORT FROM FRIENDS!
