Fatty, Fat, Fat Talk

Why is that so many people have problems stating the obvious.  Over the past years, I've been very unhappy with my weight. The thing is, I knew that I had to either accept the fat or change it.  With four kids, that is easier said than done, but I'm up for the challenge.  You see, I'm fat.  Yes, I said it!  I don't see why there is an issue with saying when I look in the mirror and see it every day.  Now there is a difference in being mean about it and being realistic.  I'm realistic.  I choose not to stay this way, but if I did I would be okay with it.

So here is the deal.  I'm 178 as of today.  I want to get to 135.  I'll be happy with 140-145.  But for now my goal is 170.  Are you still following me?

Here is the plan.  I'm going to get to the gym as often as possible.  On weeks that I make a cake, it will be harder.  If I can't get to the gym, I plan to walk the dog for a few miles.  On the eating front, I'm going to juice a few meals and eat when I feel necessary.  I can't do a full juice fast because of breastfeeding Ian.  (And no.  I did not lose more than my pregnancy weight by breastfeeding. Only some lucky women lose weight while breastfeeding.  I am not in that category!)  I plan on reducing meat intake, staying away from fried foods and keeping refined food out of my diet.  Not only do I plan on losing weight, I plan on a lifestyle change.  Do you see where I'm going with this?

On top of all that, I'm going to try and blog about it all!

I'm with ya...not losing weight bc of breastfeeding. I have FINALLY started losing since having Layla, and I honestly think that a lot of it is because she's not nursing as much. My body isn't trying to harbor all the calories like it did when I was full time nursing. Way to go you! :D
