So I’m just going to put it all on the line here!!
I AM FAT!!!
Ok now that that is out I feel better already!!
Many say that I am not “fat” just overweight! Truth is, I am fat for me! I could blame it on baby weight but my “baby” is 20 months old! It is just me saying for a very long time that I was going to lose weight & being too lazy to follow thru! I was just thinking yesterday that Connor is going to be 10 yrs old in October &I have been trying to lose weight since before I became pregnant with him. INSANE! I cannot see why I just can’t DO IT already!
To be completely honest, it makes me sick. I have “tried” to do this so many times just to revert back to old habits. But really I didn’t try hard enough. I talked a good talk but never actually put forth the effort to make it happen. I get caught up in what everyone else eats & wants that I just don’t put myself first! Seriously?? Who does this? Oh yeah, Moms! But if I’m not taking care of myself how can I take care of them! Pretty cliche, but TRUE!!!!!
It also doesn’t help that my clothes are starting to get WAY to tight for my liking!! I am NOT going to go out & buy bigger clothes!! I just can’t justify that! Not to mention the scrubs I have to wear in a few weeks! The last time I wore them they were snug. I’m sure they would be more snug now! Not buying more of them either unless it’s a smaller size!!!!
So, in order to make it to my goal I MUST eat healthy & workout like nobody’s business!!! That is the part I loathe the most! I know it doesn’t take that much time to do but I just feel like I have a thousand other things I could be doing instead, like homework or being Mommy! It all boils down to dedication & I figure if I can spend hours on facebook or pinterest, I can spend 20-30 minutes or longer working out!!!
The college I go to has a gym that for students is FREE!!! Sad thing is, it is right next door to the building I’m in everyday & I have never taken advantage of it!! That all ends now! Everyday that I am at the school I will be in the gym after my classes are over! I have to do it! Then on the days I am not at the school (in clinicals) I will be doing this….
Oh YES!!!! I am going to make sure that Jillian kicks my backside in gear!!!!! I won’t do the 30 days consecutively but I will do them!! I am surprisingly excited to do this. It’s time for a HUGE change within me! No extreme diets, no crazy workouts. Just me eating healthy & a back to the basics workout to help me shed the weight.
I will be tracking my food on my My Fitness Pal app on my phone!! And you guessed it, I’ve done this one before too!!! I was going to do Weight Watchers again because I know it works, but just like the gym, there are no funds for that right now!!! My fitness pal is free & suits my needs just fine!!!
I will be updating here to keep myself accountable! I may also even vlog my weigh-ins so there is NO cheating on my part!! A video doesn’t lie like one lies to themself!!!!! I will also have little mini goal motivators because instant gratification can get the best of me sometimes & that usually sabotages me!
My weight progressions will be posted on my side bar!! This way it’s out there & I can’t fudge it!! Also, I will post progression pictures for all to see at certain points along the way!!! I can’t wait to see the differences in my self!!!

Just a girl who is tired of being fat & these are the things I will use to lose this weight!!! Hoping to inspire a few people along the way too!!!
